Time for another self-portrait. What an exercise in craziness. Joe was looking at it and I asked him what he thought of it. He said "Uh, can I be honest?" I laughed. "Well, at first I thought it was Gramma. But something was different." I told him it was OK, it's not a surprise that I look like my Mom. I thought about cropping out the camera, but I kind of like it in there, since it's my new obsession. Black and white conversions are nice when you don't want to try to mess with whitening your teeth.
April 10 -- Sample
I love e-books.
I love being able to download samples.
I don't love that this John Scalzi book won't be released until June, because I cannot stand to wait until then to finish reading the whole thing!
I didn't realize how badly scratched the protective cover on my phone has gotten.
Guess that's why I have a protective cover...
The battery for my Rebel T3 is charging, so I grabbed my PowerShot D10 to play with it a bit. I had taken a couple of pics of Will reading on a Nook, but then he realized I was taking his picture so he got up and grabbed some crackers. Cocoa followed him back to the couch. I just love the looks they are giving each other…
Well, we were supposed to be at the first JH track meet, but it was cold and wet and yuck, so…we'll have to wait for Monday for that first. Katie has been feeling neglected in the picture department, so I told her I would use picture for today.
Miles still doesn't think it's fair that the dogs go outside and he doesn't.
I was trying to find a way to take a picture of the big patch of dirt in your yard, such that it didn't just look like a big patch of dirt. Thankfully, Cocoa wandered in to the shot and, once again, saved me and my photo. She's heard a car noise, and is looking back at the road, ready to possibly go chase. I used the Direct Positive filter on this, it was very grey outside, and the grass isn't really quite that neon, but I liked the way this filter made it all look. (The dirt is there to fill up a really big low spot in our yard. After dumping the dirt in this spot and another place, Mark got a text from his sister (who lives across the road) that said something to the effect of "Looks like you've got a really big gopher problem"
I tried to take a self-portrait but failed. I ended up sitting here on the couch taking pictures of the boys while I figured out some exposure settings on my camera. None of the pictures were real great, but I had an epiphany, so that was a good thing.
