I was trying to get Cocoa to come closer to me, but she just plopped down, so I decided to take the opportunity to take a picture of my pretty red house.
I walked out of my studio with my camera in my hands and was blessed with this little scene. I would have liked to turn on more lights and maybe move the glass, but I didn't want the cat to stop helping Mark read the tractor advertisement. I didn't realize until I was typing that *I* am in the picture, too.
Mark took this of me and Christy getting ready to sing the National Anthem together at the boys basketball game. Sadly the boys lost and their season is now over, but our girls are going to the first state basketball tournament in our school's history.
I rested my camera on the back of the couch and snapped a bunch of shots of Joe. He didn't actually smile, but he didn't frown either. Mostly, he kept on with what he was doing on his computer. I had to convert to B&W: SOOC was very yellow, when I color-corrected, his face went BLUE -- from the light emanating from the computer screen...
The snow started in the afternoon, it was wet, heavy stuff. This was taken out the front window. I don't know why I waited until so late to take a picture, since it was DARK.
February 24 -- Bird's Eye View
Mark and the dogs sleeping, the boys playing video games (PS3 and computer), and guess who's looking up at me, wondering what I'm doing up on the balcony….
Mark is helping with a STEM Day extravaganza in the elementary school. The 6th graders are going to spend the day learning how to program Mindstorms, and he is one of the expert helpers. He wanted to make sure he could make the robot do a certain thing, as a demo, so he was playing with our robot. I wish I'd gotten his head in this shot, but I love how the robot is sharp, but his hand is in motion.
