Day 20 - GUILT

I am a golf widow. So after waiting through a 2 hour frost delay and my husband shooting a 76. I finally was taken were I asked to go. The Houston Camera Exchange - where yes guilt overcame him to buy me a Epson P3000.

Fortunately/unfortunately the camera shop is only a Wendy's away from the ONLY British pub in Houston - so yes we had to partake in a pint or two.

Which results in me playing with my camera on the tollway on the way back to the house.

Day 18 - Some Things in Texas Don't Change

ROOTC - after eating lunch with my DH. What's wrong with this picture - hmmm - she's in Texas riding patrol on an English saddle. What's with the helmet vs. my good old cowboy hat? I guess safety matters in riding horses in suburbia too.

Weird things about me in response to being tagged.

1. I am a native Texas-Cajun who can't eat anything spicy
2. I think chemical plants are beautiful (even if I weren't married to a chemical engineer)
3. I LOVE to watch sports but I can't play ANY
4. I've been accused of being a possible ax murderer by more than one person
5. I can tell the difference between a male and female fly
6. I commonly get asked for directions when visiting places by other tourists

I think I'm tagging - those who haven't been tagged
Kevin, Mike, Frank, Hedi, Kayla, Ann

Otherwise I'm the last one who makes me IT I guess - LOL

Day 17 - Heart and Soul

I thought I would play with my macro and share my only Willow Tree - called Heart and Soul that was given to me by a dear friend when I moved from Texas to the UK. She said it reminded her of us when we get together sharing our hearts and souls. We don't get to see each other often but when we do it feels like it was just yesterday.

Day 16 - What do you see

I was about to give up on this day - nothing much happening and the sun FINALLY appeared and we had pretty puffy clouds.

What do you see?

Day 15 - Practicing

I am trying desperately to learn photography. I am reviewing my skills via a challenge for new photographers on a scrapbooking site.

This week's lesson was on DOF - Interesting exercise to line up objects and see the results of the aperture settings on DOF. The analogy of the water faucet and aperature never clicked in my brain it wasn't until someone told me it was a fraction the light bulb went off in my brain.

Thanks for putting up with my practice. I'm still amazed that I can shoot manually.

Day 14 - Downtown

I finally meandered out of the Woodlands 30 miles to downtown Houston. It amazes me that the skyline and the tracks picture were basically 90 degrees from each other.

The last picture is an abstract of the most abundant thing in Houston - highways - this is actually I-10. I am sure someone besides me has been on this stretch of road more than once.

It was so nice to get out of surburbia - I was better visiting downtown when I lived 90 miles away than I am now. Hopefully I'll get better at visiting soon.
