It’s been a while since I’ve participated in The League of Extraordinary Bloggers, but this week’s assignment was pretty fitting. Like the green challenge last year, this week all we had to do was post something blue, and one look at my Instagram page will tell you why I decided to join in.
I’m not very good at taking photos, and when it comes to Instagram I’m usually too lazy to break out my big-boy camera, so I try to make the best of the iPhone’s camera. A couple weeks ago I picked up a big blue poster board and made a cheap little backdrop, and I’ve been taking some photos on it, mainly of toys and stuff.
A few of them turned out better than I thought they would. I particularly like this one of Leonardo (with the Classic Collection Leo’s swords).
I love this one of Ace Duck too, because it looks like he’s posing for the camera, egg-grenades add all. Man, I need to find his hat and wings.
This one of Slash is a little rougher, but I think that’s pretty fitting for his character. Note the fake bokeh I applied with a photo editing app. I don’t mess around when it comes to wasting time with bad photography. Oh, and speaking of wasting time:
I preordered the new Medicom Dark Knight Rises figure, and forgot about it until it came in the mail. I usually don’t get fancy toys like this, and I wasn’t sure what to do with him until I had an idea. Boring Batman. It’s an Instagram account I created where I’m going to try and show Batman in the more mundane parts of his life. I was particularly proud of this shot with Batman baking cookies.
It looks like my Instagram account just blue itself.
But enough about me, go check out what other League members have been blue-ing lately.
