I start my new job at work on the 22nd, so I’ll be getting up at four o’clock every day for that. To get my body used to the change I’ve been attempting to get up at that time anyway, without real need to. Today I was up by 4:30 — I made some hot cocoa, and had some very much needed time with God. I really do enjoy being up early.
I took this photo and decided to go for a different look than usual. Interested in getting into VSCO Film, but unfortunately they don’t make those presets for Aperture anymore, so I’d need to get some Adobe software if I felt like making the plunge… We’ll see what happens.
Still waiting on my X100S to arrive. I must be patient.

The Apple Watch was unveiled just two days ago, and I have to say, before I saw it I had never considering a smart watch something that I would enjoy having. Yet the whole time that introductory video narrated by Jony Ive was playing I was thinking, ‘If I’m ever to get a smart watch, this will have to be the one.’ And I do appreciate the technology, I find it pretty fascinating. But the thing is, a watch, much like a pen and notebook, is something I really love for the antique, simplistic beauty of the object. It’s something I don’t want modern technology getting in the way of, and I can honestly say I would choose a Seiko 5 any day over an Apple Watch. Because I’d rather have a watch that serves its purpose as a watch, than a smart device that can tell the time while on my wrist.

Just ordered my Fuji X100S. From Japan. When it gets here … I will probably start posting more photos.

really, really, really want my driver’s license. Too bad I don’t even have a day off work till the 6th of September, so, I can’t go get my permit or anything. (Though these somewhat ridiculous working hours are allowing me to get the Fuji, so I’m not complaining … much.)

I’m just so full of teen angst right now, please help if you can, friends.

My Seiko 5 arrived a day early. And I love it.
On another note, I’ve decided to sell Belle (my camera), and my three lenses. I’ll be letting a good brother of mine have the kit for a nice price, as he’s been planning on getting the D3100 anyhow. For whatever reason, I just have a really hard time getting shots that I really like from Belle, and this has been the case for a while. Somewhat oddly, I much more often like the photos I take on my iPhone 5. I’ll be putting the money from Belle toward a Fuji X100S, so I should have that in a few months time. Eventually, I will be investing in a Fuji X-T1 — there’s something about the micro 4/3 camera style that really fascinates me, and the X-T1 is praised as one of the best around.
I’m honestly very excited!
