A Very Grainy Photo Every Hour: April 4, 2016

This is a series I haven't done in ages. I can't remember if I did this at all last year. I think it's time for a return. But here's the thing: Because I work from home, I make my own schedule, and sometimes it falls apart. Especially when I've got a cold, and really painful (what I think is) eczema. I could not sleep Sunday night. I did not sleep Sunday night. I finally passed out Monday morning, only to wake up in a panic at four in the afternoon. I have to explain, because there's only sunlight in the first three photos, but I planned this post weeks ago, and I'm going to stick with my schedule as much as possible dammit. It was still enjoyable though, so I'd do it again. Preferably with sunlight next time. We prefer dim lamplight in this house, hence the grain.

10. The possible eczema is too gross to share, so here's my knee.


  1. Just discovered your blog and I really like it!

    There is something very somber about these photographs so if you were in a worse mood because of the cold and eczema, then it is really communicated well here. The grain isn't extremely visible in the darkness. Just enough to make the photographs look a bit vintage. Hope you feel better soon. Have you tried Aquaphor healing ointment for your eczema? It seems to help me out a bit.

    1. Thanks Alyse, I'm so glad you like it! I haven't tried that, but I'm definitely going to look it up now.

  2. This series of photos is so moody Amber, almost sad. I'm both amazed and impressed you can convey that emotion through photography!

    1. You're so kind, thank you Gabrielle!

  3. I definitely need to do a series like this soon. I've always wanted to, but I am so rarely home all day. I love these pictures - a little grain never hurt anyone and can honestly have a nice aesthetic at times. The tone here is so moody and morose so really, the grain adds to it!

    Good luck with your eczema though. I hope you feel better soon!


    1. You should try it! It really is enjoyable. Thanks so much Elizabeth!
