I’ll finish up my micro photography of Sunday with this image of some tree bark. I should do more micro photography but it’s been difficult of late because my tripod is still in the trunk of my car, which as of today has been in the shop an entire week. 😦
Hopefully I’ll get some information on where they are with the repair of the computer today. I’m starting to get a little frustrated.
One more image of Gabby. We have a bunch of Mardi Gras beads as our church celebrates Mardi Gras with music and costumes during the season. Gabby hunts them down and covers herself with them every time she is over here.
Another short post. Hope you enjoy your day. I’m back at work today. Thanks for stopping by the blog. Be careful.
I’ll show you some of the many images I took at Josh’s birthday party last Saturday. I never saw one kid get so many presents. He seemed to take it all in stride however and was appreciative of each and ever gift. With two loving parents, four doting grand parents and three uncles he does not want for presents at a birthday celebration.
Gabby took it all in and kept herself busy with her toys. She was passed from grandma to grandma so she never lacked for attention during the evening. We had a wonderful dinner with of course cake and ice cream. It was a great night and fun to be with Ben’s side of the family. Mark and Taylor also made the celebration.
As you can see I have some competition at family gatherings. For as little time as she has had to practice Angie does a great job with her photography. She made the croutons, Cesar dressing and everything else from scratch. I can say in total objectivity it was a magnificent meal.
Ever the attentive Father, Ben has some fun with Josh before taking him upstairs for his nightly routine. It was a great evening and fun to watch the little guy grow up.
I am off today as it is the day of my procedure lovingly known as the “rotor router” procedure. 😦 I don’t go to the hospital until Noon and then I am scheduled for a 2:00 p.m. session. So the last time I had anything to eat was yesterday morning’s breakfast. Now there is no concern about me starving, I could live for a year if I had too, but I can tell you I am damn hungry and probably will be more so before it is all over.
That’s all I’ll bore you with today. Enjoy your Monday. I doubt I’ll be taking any images today but you never know. Thanks for stopping by. Be careful.
Yesterday morning when I went out to get the paper i saw a wonderful full moon. This morning (2 hours later than yesterday) I saw a beautiful sunrise over Asbury. The sun was a brilliant red. So I ran (actually more like a slow waddle) inside got the camera and hand-held a few shots of the sunrise. I can tell you this image is not what I saw. The sun was almost a blood-red. It was red in the little LCD on the back of my screen but when I processed it there wasn’t nearly enough red. I tried a number of combinations but this is the best I could do. 😦
Yesterday was a tough day. Stressful situations I had to work through, news of friends with health issues and other things I cannot talk about. I knew Jeanne was babysitting the grand kids so I decompressed a little on the drive home and thought I’d go over and play with the kids a little. I enjoy visiting and playing with the kids but I’m not so much into babysitting so my visit was relatively short. It was just about their bedtime anyway .
When I arrived at Angie and Ben’s home Gabby was in the lower den in her seat watching Jeanne and Joshua play. After a nice greeting from Josh I sat down across from Gabby and smiled at her and said high. In less than 30 seconds her pleasant peaceful face contorted into a mass of wrinkles and the tears begin to flow.
I’m getting a complex with her. All she does is cry when I come near.
So I played a little with Josh. He has such a vivid imagination and plays very well with himself. He built a complex fence around his animals all the while explaining what he was doing. I love the energy he has. He never stays doing the same thing for very long. Then its off to another adventure or project.
Speaking of projects, I finished my third 52 week project yesterday. A new photograph every week for 52 weeks. I expect I’ll start another one. I’m still thinking about my next big project. I thought about taking 365 different images of my car never repeating the same shot but then I guess that would be more like a copycat than anything. 🙂
That’s it for today. Enjoy your weekend. Thanks for stopping by and be careful. Irish Hooley tonight. I’m looking forward to it.
