Last night and very early this morning I was at Nuit Blanche.
As per my tradition I tried to live tweet and post photos for most of the night. I would say the full 7-7 but My phone was nearly dead by 3. Totally worth it.
I was with a group of people for the first few hours I was out. My friend Hilary was in that group and evereytime we heard some new music I would say “New theme.” Like we had a sound track for our night. We also made jokes about being an art zombie hoard and being a school of art fish. It was awesome.
I spent most of my time at the exhibits at city hall and on Spadina. It was a lot more spread out this year so I was dead tired by 3 am. I feel like there wasn’t as much this year. There was a lot more food trucks than art exhibits.
I took some crappy pic with my cell and mini cam.
Some of my tweets from the event.
For the next few days I’ll be posting some blogs that I meant to post months ago. I’ve had a lot of things going on, My depression has gotten worse, and I haven’t really felt like picking up my camera or writing anything down. That’s why I’m so behind. I hope with in the next week I can get caught up and go back to my regular posting schedule.
Thanks for being my emotional jock strap.
I didn’t take to many photos at pride this year. My social anxiety got the better of me this year. It was also really hot this year. I ended up having to change my shirt because I was a dumbass and wore black to the party.
I did have a good time though. I got a lot of free condoms and free sunscreen (because I’m ginger), I got a rainbow flag, a rainbow nesting doll and a wicked sunburn (after I changed my shirt).
Note: I meant to post this a while ago but things have been happening. Big changes have been happening. I’m just trying to catch up now.
Last year I worked at the Toronto Zoo. After I was done my shift of taking family photos, I had some time left to go walk around the zoo before I went home.
I used to see the animals everyday so I wasn’t really that interested in taking more animal pictures. I wondered off the zoo path to take pictures of other things. I hadn’t noticed other people were following me.
When I came a cross this spider web, crouched down and took a few shots. After my last shot I could hear people talking.
“What’s she taking pictures of?”
“I wonder what’s over there?”
I slowly turned around to face a group of people who were VERY interested to see what I was taking pictures of. I got up and walked away, as people rushed by me to see what was there.
I guess this is more of an awkward story then a funny one. Whatever.
