Good morning! Hope everyone is having a good weekend!
I have an Olivia Snaps post for you today, which is going to be filled with book themed photographs I have taken and likely edited as well. I think all of these have been posted on my instagram before, so if you want to see my pictures sooner you should definitely connect with me there as well.
I just wanted to say a quick thank you for 2000 followers on Pinterest! I would love to run a giveaway but I have a Christmas hop coming up pretty soon and am busy buying presents so a bit short on funds. But THANK YOU!
But just before I get started you should go check out my guest post over at Fictionzeal! I have been following her blog for about two years now, and Diane is such a lovely, loyal and mystery loving woman! Go show her some love :3
Here come the images!
I took this picture of the 5 books 5 category tag! You had to choose a book you originally knew nothing about (The Blessed by Tonya Hurley), a book no one else has heard of (Reapers by Bryan Davis), an anticipated sequel (A Thousand Pieces of You by Claudia Gray), a book everyone loves (Cinder by Marissa Meyer) and your current read, which at the time was All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.
This photograph was for the bookish wave tag. Sometimes I have some really cool photo ideas and then they never turn out how I want them to because they simply don't 'work' when attempted in real life. This is one of those ideas that actually did work, which made me happy. It's my most popular photo on instagram and took me the most time! (I have no idea why I decided to build the wave on stairs, of all things. If it toppled over it would fall from the top floor to the bottom floor. Thank goodness it didn't.)
This one was for the rainbow book tag! I also really love nailpolish, so putting books and nailpolish together just had to happen! A funny little thing is that this photograph was actually taken on a white desk with a very pale pink wall. It just looks so pink (which suits the photograph) because of the way the light was coming in the window and the pink book on the bottom reflecting a little.
Finally, a photo which wasn't tag inspired! This was another one of those ideas which actually worked out for me in the end when I tried to make it happen. I really liked the results. It's all my black spined books, even if you can't see the spines!
This last one here isn't even of my own books! I was at a friends house and we both love Percy Jackson, so I was admiring her covers which are different from my own. She's missing one from her collection but she let me take a quick snap on her carpet!
My latest video! I FINALLY read Aristotle and Dante discover the Secrets of the Universe! Come see my thoughts:
Olivia's Question: Do you ever have ideas which just don't work out the way you want them to when they leave your mind?
