Phew! I wasn't sure if I could get this in today, I was on a ridiculous mission to complete shipping of all my orders in one day.  I tried, I have been up since the crack of dawn trying to  do so, but failed.  I don't even know why I tried (most rational people don't expect same day shipping, right?), but I wanted to see if I could--I couldn't.  In between all of this I had an hour to shoot. I usually don't shoot + ship in the same day, it's not a good time, but I had this  dumb goal so I did. I know that I only get about an hour of good light each day now (there's a HUMONGOUS construction site going up right next door to my quaint little flat, insert sad face here). I styled and shot with my hour allotment, which really would have been more useful if I ate instead of took photographs, but I threw pragmatism to the wind today. After I had been shipping for 13 hours straight less the 1 hour for a 'photoshoot', I  realized I needed to do my edit--Wha?  I pulled out this hawk, I had wanted to tackle him (her?) for a while now, so happy I did.  I feel like I could keep going on this, but I am pretty happy with the result. Assessment? Not a bad day, not a bad day at all.

I will be editing a photo a day for the remainder of 2012::Project MMXII, this is my 'after', you can view the 'before' here.
