Day 27 - Best of the Day

It's pretty sad when you go out LOOKING for something to shoot and this is the best you can come up with. Ah at least I tried.

The reflection in the building is office building where my husband works. At least he has a corner office and it has a nice view still the construction in suburbia mars the "scenic" waterway.

Day 26 - Happy Anniversary

Happy Anniversary to ME! A year ago after urging from family, friends, and a persistant physical therapist I joined weight watchers online. And I have lost weight - do I feel differently - well I can walk a lot further. I still have not reached my goal - dieting was slightly derailed with back injury. So I will continue on ...

Day 25 - STOPPED

Today after taking a picture of the weather vane at our "open" market shopping area I was stopped by a security guy. I told him that I was taking photographs for a photography class and was not taking pictures of ANY people. To which I received a lecture that the property owners do not allow photography on their premises without their express approval (I wonder HOW many illegal pictures of toddlers playing in the water fountain have been snapped) So to placate the guard I did go up to the management office and say I'm taking pictures for personal use only and of absolutely NO PEOPLE and they said fine. After which I found the new pig statute. I'm beginning to think the only place where it is LEGAL for me to take pictures freely is my own yard.

Day 23 and 24 - Waiting

I didn't forget yesterday or today. I've been waiting...

Wanting to throw my computer through a window for being a pain - I decided I would work on it and add a hub and another external hard drive. I never thought it would take FOREVER to defrag the original hard drive and format the new drive partitions.

I did make it to the park and take some shots AND 30 days of photographs from me would be lacking without a golf shot. I decided to prepare for upcoming NYC trip by walking back and forth to clubhouse from my home. (A HUGE meander for me - LOL)

Day 22 - More Practice

Practice using shutter priority. I remember doing this lesson before so I made sure I cropped in closer to the water this time.

The subjective nature of photography still interests me. Since photography is art - what is it's true nature - to create something beautiful and pleasing to the eye or rather document what the person actually sees.

Day 21 - Being Nice

I was awakened by a phone call early this morning by my husband telling me that getting rear ended (no visible car damage) was not the way to start his day. He was determined to continue on to play in the annual Super Bowl golf tournament but I asked him if he was stiff in any way not to play golf. About 30 minutes later he walked back into the house and we decided to go to the ER to get checked out for precautionary reasons. FIVE hours later we finally left the ER with prescriptions for the same medicine I've been taking for my back.

So I thought I would be nice to him and let him play with my camera and a EXTREMELY rare event, not pitch a fit when he was taking my picture. I did take some pictures today but thought I would just share this.
