Finn wrote a post about what we can do to help make the earth a better place for our kids. Obviously I don’t have children, but I do love a lot of people who will grow up at have their own kids and I would want the world to be a good place for them. Hopefully humans will get their shit together, quit fighting and live happily ever after.
Anyhow, Finn asked what each of us to to be more “green” and earth friendly. She sort of challenged us to come up with more things that we could do. As I was looking through my bills a thought that maybe I could try to go 72 hours without using electricity in my house. Sure, the fridge would continue to sap electricity, but other than that it was worth a good go at the challenge.
And then I realized my cell phone battery was almost dead. That’s cool, I don’t need to talk to anyone. I’ll spend more quality time outside with the dogs; I’ll read “Are you there, Vodka, it’s me, Chelsea” by candlelight. Then I’ll do to the office in the morning and charge the hell outta that fucker. Same for the lappytop…make sure it is fully charged during the work day. That totally doesn’t count as using electricity, right?
Well, I didn’t post on Wednesday, but since I wanted to listen to Clearly You’re Retarded (Britt and Adam’s show on Talk Shoe that had Faiqa filling in this week) I figured using the machine’s battery isn’t using electricity or something like that which pacified my no electric resolve.
From there it was an easy jump to using a tealight or a flashlight and the camera so that I could take a few photos for HNT.
And here is practically the same photo with a different crop:
More shadows from a flashlight.
So, which is your favorite of my “no electricity, quickly shoot the images before I burn myself or run out of batteries” photo set?
