Do you get them too?
Not only do I stress over what photos to take – OMG, HAS THAT BEEN DONE BEFORE?
Are they going to be in focus – SHIT, GO & TAKE ANOTHER DOZEN SHOTS, THEY MIGHT WORK THIS TIME!
Get the post-photo editing done (oh, god, is that called editing, or post production or what is it???) on photoshop – OMG, HOW DO I DO THAT AGAIN, OH NO, I"VE DELETED IT!! AAaarrrgggh!!!
I then REALLY worry about the lame little comments I make! I wish you could see me when I view an image that blows me away – even better, I wish you could be in my head when that image takes on a life of it’s own & expands & expands & tells me it’s own story (oh, god, probably not the one you’re conveying…oops…)
So, I apologise now. If I leave a comment on one of your images that simply reads:
“Wow! I love it!”
“love the colour”
and leave you little smiling faces like : ) or ; ) ,
or anything else as corny as that – well, what I really mean to be saying is:
“OMG, THAT IS SO FANTASTIC, IT’S BLOWING ME AWAY BY IT’S BEAUTY/SIMPLICITY/COMPLEXITY/RAWNESS/PAIN, YOU CLEVER CLOGS FOR HAVING SHOT/PAINTED/DRAWN IT IN THE FIRST PLACE, AND KNOWN YOUR WAY AROUND PHOTOSHOP/ILLUSTRATOR/FANCY COMPUTER PROGRAM, AND BEEN SO CLEVER TO GIVE IT THAT CUTE/CATCHY/CLEVER/PROFOUND TITLE & OMG LOOK HOW MANY COMMENTS YOU ALREADY HAVE & EVERYONE HAS ALREADY SAID EVERYTHING WITTY/FUNNY/PROFOUND/TECHNICAL, SO THAT ALL I CAN SAY IS WOW, GREAT IMAGE”.
I really & truly am jumping up and down and enjoying the image you’ve uploaded! And I really & truly do LOVE the image…
I just want you to think I’m a nutter…
And do you know what’s giving me a headache now? WHAT IF SOMEONE HAS ALREADY TYPED THIS UP, IN THEIR OWN WORDS AND THIS IS JUST A RE-HASHING, AND I HAVEN’T EVEN BOTHERED TO GO AND CHECK IT ON THE WHEREVER IT WOULD BE!!!
oh, god, where’s that panadol???
