today i did something fun and spontaneous that i didn’t get worried about at all! i think even people without anxiety problems would feel hesitant about it.
i went to my local starbucks to get iced tea (yayayyayayayay for summer, it’s iced tea time again!), and saw a store that i knew was there, but never really thought about it. what was it? ……a comic book store! the dude i talked to at the store actually looked like “comic book guy” on the Simpsons. hehe.
it was a big empty room with lots of racks and shelves of books run by two very dorky guys who were talking to each other. no one else was in there. i didn’t think twice, just walked on in. i can imagine it making a lot of people apprehensive…something you know nothing about, people you know nothing about, something specialized that you’re not into….
when in i walked in the door i said, i’ve never bought a comic book in my life, but i love batman. he showed me all kinds of cool stuff and i bought one! he asked me, how dark do you like your batman? dark as dark can be! the darkest!
he picked a series that he thought i’d like and i bought the first one. it’s gorgeous. beautiful slick paper, very detailed exciting drawings… i can tell i’m gonna love it, even though i’ve just paged through it a little, (i’m saving it for when i can concentrate on it.) if only because the art is so awesome.
this is a brand new experience for me! i felt so confident going into the shop. i was able to make an informed choice, and i communicated just fine!
there are a lot in the series, maybe this will give me something new to collect!
happy sunday! 🙂
the latest installment in the neighborhood series.
occasionally i include the rest of the series in one of the new posts just so people can get a better feel for what i’m doing and i think they’re more pleasing to see together. so here are the rest! (not in order because it doesn’t matter what comes first or last or in between.)
this is another photo, in what is turning out to be a series, of a house in my neighborhood that has cool shadows on it, and that i edited in a similar way to the others.
there was rain this morning, and then glare so i thought it would be a hopeless day for shooting pictures. (i’m trying to do one of these everyday.) i decided to go to starbuck’s just to get out of the house and when i got to the top of my street i noticed a house down the street had some cool shadows on it. i turned left there, which is really usual. i’m not very familiar with that street. i parked and took a bunch of pictures. i knew i’d found the photo for today.
others in the series….
