Doll Photo Roundup

Have I ever talked about how much I love Instagram? Lots of people hate it, citing their disinterest in what you’re having for lunch as their reason they don’t use it. Yeah, except that’s the same thing we said all those years ago about Facebook book status updates and Twitter. And look who’s still reigning supreme? Whether you like it or not, Instagram is a social media mainstay, and I for one welcome our new box-photographed overlords.

I post all sorts of nonsense to it, but these days I’ve been getting more and more into the doll photography scene. The tag #dollstagram brings most dolly photographers together, and tagging the brand (#mattel), line (#monsterhigh), or specific character (#frankiestein) makes for much more direct browsing. I’ve been having a lot of fun these last few months trading pictures with other instadollgramers, and decided that I’d share some of my favorite photos with those of you who haven’t yet jumped on the bandwagon.

Go Ask Valis, Part 2

About a year ago, I introduced VALIS, a local tagger whose work I found in and around the East Bay. Today, I bring you more of their handy work. Enjoy.

The Last Couple Months in Pictures

I’ve been busy these last couple months, and to prove it, I have pictures! I swear I’m not just being lazy and not blogging. Well, that might be some of it. When faced with a few free hours I have found myself sitting down and watching a lot of YouTube videos, but I chalk that up to “research” – you know, should I ever get around to making a channel and posting videos about… something. Suffice to say, I’m sure any vlogs I make will be just as well-categorized and orderly as this blog!

Er, onto the pictures.

Go Ask Valis

Since moving to the Bay Area, I’ve noticed a certain tagger was quite ubiquitous in my nook of the East Bay. That tagger is Valis. The name caught my attention¬†immediately, as I like to read science fiction, and though I’m not his biggest fan, I’m aware of Philip K. Dick’s VALIS¬†series. I haven’t read it yet, but the name always stood out to me. I’m not sure why, exactly – perhaps because of it’s similarity to the name “Alice”, one of my favorite names and fictional characters. But no matter the reason, this tagger caught my attention, and I’ve been doing my best to document their tags as I find them. Here are a few.

I’ll share more as I find them.

Ending Start

Hope you’re all having happy holidays. Here’s some photos I took this year that I sorta liked.

Out Like a Lamb

Winter is ending, and many of us are trading in snow for rain. Here, we’re not so much trading in as just getting lots and lots of rain, but that hasn’t stopped me from snapping some pictures with my phone.

The Cruelest Month (Might be November?)

November is a hard month. It’s sandwiched between two big holidays that a lot of people celebrate, and if you live outside the US, it’s kind of just a waiting period between the two. And for those of us who do NaNoWriMo, it’s even more hectic. Even though I dropped NaNo this year (it’s bad when your own characters bore you), I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging, reading, etc. So here are a few cell phone photos I’ve taken in between my busy schedule.
