Citizen Erased Photography is run by Kathryn Luna (me), a mixed media artist and photographer. I love collecting vintage&toy cameras, creating my own custom mask pieces and all things cute, and fluffy. I recently started developing my own film and run my own blog and website. This Tumblr is for my 356 Days of Photography and showcasing random things that inspire me.

365 Challenge - Complete!

So as you may have noticed my 365 Challenge offically completed yesterday. A daily photo for a year! It feels like it started so long ago. Now the real questions is another year of daily photos? Well as much as I loved it, feel like it really made me take WAY more pictures and made me take photos of things I normally actually don’t document (and ended up enjoying documenting it)….I don’t think I will. I am trying to work more seriously on my craft and not simply take photos but take photos that I feel inspired by. And daily photos are really draining and take away from my actual photography. Sadly I work at full time job at a call center and I honestly cannot put enough time into making an inspiring photos once a day (although I’d love that and if I was a full time photography I would glady do that). So I’ve decided for the next year what I do instead is SHARE a photo a day. So there is still going to be photos on here every day starting with tomorrow (I have a hang over today, lol) but they have been taken 4 years, a week ago or maybe even on that day. It’ll be fun, and honestly my favourite part of my 365 Challenge was talking about my day and what I did and I’m glad to still be doing that. :)

365/365 The last photo in my 365 Challenge. I offically completed to take one photo a day for a whole year! I started it with a self portrait so I thought it was fitting to end with one. It’s -20 outside so I decided to take a simple photo of me in my kitchen (wearing my pjs no less). I’m worn out today as well and the looming prospect of a long day at work hasn’t made me feel too accomblished but hopefully tomorrow it dawn on me what a great goal I’ve complete. I will be doing an ofifcal wrap up of the project on my blog in a few weeks so look out for that!

363/365 One of my favourite things to take photos is my mail apperently…at least that`s what my 365 Challenge has taught me this year. I do love getting things in the mail, it`s like a suprise even when you know what it might be. So the 2nd to last photo is just that - some of my most recent mail. I`ve decided to collect all the My Little Pony books and Rainbow Bright ones. I don`t know why. The Rainbow Bright ones have the vinyl record and the tapes with it. I use to listen to them over and over during the long summer days at my dad`s horrible small town apartment. Below his building on this large hill there was a building site dug right into the side of the hill and I would sit on the top of the hill with my feet dangling into the pit with my white Fisher Price cassette tape player listening to stories while just staring at the rocks below - it always helped me escape. Havne`t listened yet but I`m sure my memory is better than reality on that one. lol. Tomorrow is the last day!

363/365 Playing around with my new Polaroid Super Shooter Plus and Flashcubes. I am a litlte obsessed with my art wall but it’s so colorful and me it’s hard not to be, lol. I need to learn the perfect distant with Flashcubes so it doesn’t washout everything. I took a few of Butter as well. Can you believe that I have 2 days of photos to do before my 365 Challenge is over? I have other plans starting on Friday so don’t worry about the photos just ending but it wont be a 365 Challenge anymore. Look out for that!

362/365 Alexandre Ortiz of We Are Wolves live at the Cinémathèque Québécoise in Montreal for Nuit Blanche. It dawned on my last night I’ve seen WAW over 10 times in less than 9 years. That’s kinda crazy, I’ve barely seen most bands I love once. I took this at 1am so offically it counts as Sunday’s photo. I once really wanted to be a concert photographer, because the idea of taking photos of the bands I love seemed impossibly awesome job but than I realized I also liked to dance and didn’t really care if I got the perfect shot over dancing my ass off.

361/365 Nuit Blanche! Every year in Montreal we have a festival for comtemporary art that is all night long. It’s really fun, and there is always really fun and strange activites to do. Me and Victor headed out a little late and went to the Festival des Lumières but everything had massive lines. I really wanted to go on the ferris wheel but it had over an hour wait. So intead we went to a photo booth and headed to watch We Are Wolves play for free. It was a great concert but they played an hour after their showtime so it finished at 1am. We went to the Belgo building that has really neat art exhibits and activities but it was too late and everything had closed so we headed home. Kinda bummed we didn’t get to do much and spent most of the night waiting for WAW to start but at the same time at least we were indoors most of the time and not freezing our asses off. lol.

360/365 Frost and fake snow flakes. It’s the last day of February, and my big hope for March is not waking up to -20 weather. Can you believe I have 5 days left of my 365 Challenge? That’s nuts. More will be coming in the next few weeks. For now, I just want the heat in my house to kick in because it’s freezing here and I also think staying up till 5am yesterday and messed up all my Friday night plans. Mellow day I think for me. Hope you have a great weekend!

359/365 A Silver Trembling Fetus…..not something you see every day is it. I was reorganizing my bookshelf because I ran outta room and decided to take out a few books that I bought but didn’t actually end up liking too much to make way for all the comics I’ve been buying lately. And I ran across my Flaming Lips cosmic Christmas decoration that Victor bought my 5 years ago for my birthday that was hanging out on the shelf in it’s awesome box. Thought I’d share it with you because well I’m wierd and sometimes I like to remind people of that fact. I own a fetus, and it’s probably the only fetus I’ll ever have. lol. Alright back to pictures of cute things tmr, I promise.

358/365 Best part of my day today was watching Butter sunbath on the coffee table. Anytime she sees me taking photos near our living room window she has to join and jump on the table, which is perfect because it’s the best spot for taking photos of her fuzzy little face. She was rolling around on her back and trying to trick me into petting her belly. Other than that I spent my morning in bed and watching Youtube and now have a midnight shift at work that will hopefully go by quick. Hope your week is going well!

357/365 Yesterday was My Little Pony delivery day as my mug and my two vintage MLP todays came in the mail. Let me tell you about that mug - see the nic on the side…well the whole mug is actually split completely in half. I’m totally tricking you in the photo because it looks whole but my mug showed up in two halfs with all this little shards of broke porcelain everywhere in the delivery BAG (because apperently Top Shop cannot afford to ship mugs in boxes or bubble wrap - there was 0% chance it was every going to arrive whole). Anyways mid-week blues from work but tomrrow I promise a non-kitchen counter photo.

356/365 This week’s snail mail is all ready to go! A few cute postcards I found in Toronto for friends and birthday cards to my friend’s twins. Yesterday when I was at the post office I found out they are raising all the prices to stamps which is going to make it hard to keep sending postcards to friends. I think I’ll probably only send 1 set of postcards for every season as I already spend over $200 a year on stamps. It’s so fun though, I hope there is never a time in my life time where they stop mail because it’s really awesome way to make someone smile. Or am I just too hippy about my snail mail?

355/365 A perfect Sunday afternoon! Except of course I put on my cute skating outside and grabbed my skates and headed to Parc LaFontaine to see that they had closed the skating on the lake because the nice weather had melted too much of the ice. I stared for awhile to see if I should try it because if I fell it’s only 3 feet of water but decided after finding a few puddles above the ice I’d probably should wait for a better day. I’m having a great day despite no skating though. Too bad it’s Monday tomorrow.

354/365 A little look at home life because today is my chill day at home to clean the house and not give a fuck. Yup, Victor found a Mortal Kombat fight stick on Kijiji and picked it up today. He tested it out by playing a few rounds of MK on his Playstation3. He has been obessed with getting one since he found out about them. As you can tell, he is very pleased. lol.

353/365 *Squeal* My lovely my new unicorn statue that my co-worker Jenny picked for me from Salvation Army for $2. You know someone knows you well when they see a scary hand painted statue of a unicorn and immediately think of you. lol. I thought it was one of those mass market porcelain statues you can find at craft stores but I was showing it to my old manager at work in the office yesterday and he says it’s definitely been made by hand which makes it even more weird that I original thought. I shall treasure it always, I love things like this. I thought I’d take a slight creepy photo of it today so you guys could see it. Hope you have a great weekend.
