My ideas seem to come to me in the night … when I should be sleeping. And thinking about them is something I can’t control. Neither is the roar coming from the person next to me. But I think it’s the idea-thinking that keeps me wide awake and is most to blame for my skewed sleep-wake cycle.
Tonight — technically, it’s morning — I’ve been thinking about the iPhone macro abstracts I’ve been shooting in my creative space. Some are lovely compositions I could imagine wall-sized. The one I took today with the cardboard, for sure. If I could get it blown up as large as I’m thinking, it would lose all of its resolution. Then I could draw or paint into it. And the one with the wood in it. It’s hot in here. Could they be exhibited together? The large ones and then those I don’t enlarge? Am I kidding myself imagining someone would exhibit these? Who could I ask without risking embarrassment? What if the battery problem with my iPhone 5 means I need an iPhone 6? Will my Ollo clip fit on the 6? I like the 5, but the 6 does take better photos. On the exhibition notes I could say how all the shots were taken in this one space, without moving anything. I could start a new Instagram account just for these shots. I wish I could sleep. I could get a macro for my dslr, but then I’d have to start over. Do you need a reputation before exhibiting? I have so much to learn. I better write that down.
