I was having a tough time decompressing last night from a hectic day so I took my camera and shot some low light still life compositions in my room. After a couple of hours, my mind and body had relaxed enough to call it a night.

Incidentally, as I was preparing this entry a while ago, the final half of the movie Dolores Clayborn was on TV, and although I still remember vividly its story line, I had forgotten how beautifully shot it was, especially the scene with the total eclipse of the sun at the backdrop. It was a star-studded film, but my favorite from the entire cast is Cathy Bates; a truly remarkable actor she is. Playing the role of her husband was David Strathairn who also played the character of Edward R. Murrow in a film directed by George Clooney, Goodnight and Good Luck.

Doing these exercises is certainly relaxing, Ferdz. Now I do it especially when having a hard time falling asleep. Thanks!

No, DP, but I was sitting on a stool and rested my elbow on my thigh for a steady shot. Thanks!

I like this shot.

I have a DVD of Dolores Claiborne sitting on my shelf since summer. Haven't watched it yet. Just might now after reading your post. :)

Oh, Irene, as soon as you have the free time -- I know, rare these days on account of the upcoming holidays -- you have got to see this film.

Please, if you have time, too, write a brief review. I've always enjoyed reading your critiques and I'd like to know your reaction to this one.

I've finally seen the movie. I didn't have an idea that it also deals with domestic abuse. Familiar topic, eh?

I can now see how you connect this picture to the film. I like the way they used colours to blend the present (blue) with the flashbacks (orange).

I've already written my little piece about this movie. :)
