Took this about an hour before midnight. It took me a few tries to get it in focus while holding the camera in one hand and waving a lit sparkler in the other. My main concern was to not get sparks on my camera!

Remember how fun it was as a kid to open the medicine cabinet in your bathroom in a way that made your reflection multiply when you looked into it? Yeah, that’s how I did this one. I wish the focus was better, but I think it’s a cool shot anyhow.

Christine helped me paint. She really got into it.

Hot pink. Not very masculine. This color was chosen by my ex. I should have painted it years ago, but I tend to procrastinate and it took me almost 4 years after she moved out to finally do it.

This entry doesn’t understand what’s wrong with hot pink.
