Look at the blog, Larry. Just look at that blog.

This is gonna be about Band-Aids. It's pretty great.

#39. The man with the screaming Band-Aid brain.

As this blog has gone on, I’d like to think my photography skills have improved…. at least a little. If technically, I’ve gone from the worst person to ever fumble with the controls of a camera to the second worst person to ever fumble with the controls of a camera, I’ll consider this a huge success. Conveniently, though, the easiest way to remove any sense of progress is to let it stew in the furious, anxiety-ridden screaming cacophony that is my brain.

You see, Passover is this weekend, and I was planning on doing some more, potentially Passover-related blog entries over the weekend. Which would totally be awesome, except for the whole screaming anxiety thing.

I have an aunt who’s a professional photographer. She’s gonna be at Passover. And somewhere in my mind is the thought that doing any kind of amateur, class-required photography in front of her would shame me over how terrible I am at it. Now if I’ve made any kind of being-less-of-a-crazy-person progress over the last couple of years, then hopefully I’ll be less of a crazy person, but really I just don’t know. The only way to truly tell if I’ve made any progress in this is to construct some kind of gigantic brain made out of Band-Aids, and then take a photo of it in front of my aunt. One hopes that the addition of Band-Aids, and the necessity of having to do art-y stuff with Band-Aids will push me through the point of no return and into a-little-less-crazy town. But we won’t truly find out until I try this weekend.

Only then will we know.

Only then.

Update: So I didn’t actually construct any giant Band-Aid brains, but my aunt noticed the old, used Band-Aids still stuck to the back of my computer and we ended up chatting about the blog. Sooooooo… I’m still gonna mark that one in the ‘win’ column.
