Photo Set

For my Alternative Photo course. Used a really cheap (like 6 bucks a bottle not worth drinking cheap) cab as a mordanting toner for a project for class. Poured it in the tub after presoaking my print and left it there overnight. Made some beautiful splotches on the front and some really interesting colors. Left some greenish, some blues, and a little red.

The print was of a 4x5 negative on Ilford warmtone paper.

Today’s picture for invisible illness is a personal one. This is one of about 30 notes that my friend has received since using her handicapped placard. I’m going to say this to you, have you ever seen someone get out of a car parked in a handicapped space and said to yourself “they look too young or they don’t look disabled.” I’m going to go with yes you have, because we all have at one time. I can’t remember doing it, but before I understood the difficulties of invisible illness when I was younger I probably did. Let me ask you this though, when you had that thought was it because you knew with 100% certainty that they weren’t handicapped or did you assume that because of their age and/or not seeing a cane, walker or wheelchair? All I’m asking is that we stop and think when we someone need a mobility aid, park in a handicapped space or say they are disabled that we remember this “DISABILITY HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH AGE OR APPEARNACE.” #spoonie #invisibleillness #disability #chronicillness #rheumatoidarthritis #lupus #fibromyalgia #myofascialpainsyndrome

If nothing else, this post needs to be seen around the internet more. This harassment is not okay and no one should have to deal with it on top of having an invisible illness. This is just another form of anonymous bullying to add to the internet bullying these TROLLS are capable of.

If you are healthy, please reblog.
If you are sick, please reblog.
If you have a disability, please reblog.
If you have an invisible illness, please reblog.
If you know someone with a disability, please reblog.
If you are a human being, please reblog.

Let’s spread the word and help those of us that may not look like it. 

Ignorance isn’t bliss, ignorance is ignorance. 

And people ask me why I am afraid to use my cane in public.

Being disabled, visibly so is always dangerous

When I got my first cane and posted about it, I had people demanding to know why I thought I “deserved” it at my age.

That was the word.

"Deserved".

This is the kind of bullshit that made my dad, a man who dealt with crippling pain from degenerative disc disorder, afraid to apply for handicapped parking

I remember saying to him that he could get handicapped plates and hearing him say that it wasn’t “bad enough” as I watched him wince and hobble as he walked from the back of the parking lot

People internalize these ideas, even handicapped people, that’s why this is so fucking important

People are shit for being like this. My mom and I have gotten anywhere from dirty looks to awfulness shouted at us for parking in handicapped spots (with the hangtag, mind you) because my dad is disabled. Sometimes my dad decides he can’t walk very far to a restaurant door and I will drop him off closer to the door and park in the far HC spot (unless it’s a teeny parking lot) just in case he feels he can walk that far (and after we eat he always can, so it’s not like I’m parking there for my own convenience, I can walk distance just fine). I’ve gotten the ugliest looks from these bitches. Like did you not even see me drop off my dad? Oh you’re gonna glare at me? Go eat a dick. I cater to my dad’s disability, not your judgmental ass.

Not everyone sees the same color when they stare at this spinning disk.
The gif is called, “Benham’s disk" "is named after the English toymaker Charles Benham, who in 1895 sold a top painted with the pattern shown. When the disk is spun, arcs of pale color, called Fechner colors or pattern-induced flicker colors (PIFCs), are visible at different places on the disk. Not everyone sees the same colors."
"The phenomenon originates from neural activity in the retina and spatial interactions in the primary visual cortex, which plays a role in encoding low-level image features, such as edges and spatiotemporal frequency components."
Fascinating how our brains work, I see a brown tan, what do you see? :D

i see lavender!

Chartreuse/yellow-lime green. Interesting.

just gonna say this: if someone has social anxiety and they ask you something akin to ‘are you mad at me’ or ‘do you hate me’, it isn’t because they don’t trust you, it’s because their brain literally tells them that all the time

it’s not a personal slight, it’s insecurity caused by mental illness

thanks

Unfortunately, some of my best designs come from my agitation of fucking around with said design for 3 hours.

Spent more than enough time on Smogon and on Pokemon.

I suppose I should actually clean now.
