Ok, still suffering a teeny bit of difficulty with adjusting to the mac. Or rather, it's having difficulty adjusting to me. Fear not, for my will will out. Hell be damned.
Anyway, dipping my toe in the pool of photography is quite a hoot, actually. I'm sure my fairy light embroidery on this is something millions of people have done and have done a better job, but I had a blast playing with black and white and long exposure tonight.
Niece and nephew were over for the night and we had pool hijinks aplenty until about 10pm. They are the sweetest little things. I can't imagine loving a child more than I do them.
We went to WalMart and bought some little water craft that run on 8 D cell batteries and squirt water out the handlebars, and they had a field day. Maybe tomorrow night I'll post one of those photos, which were long exposure and color. The pool came out to an almost eerie white, and they seem suspended in mist. Coolness.
The camera is one of the best things I've ever bought. I can't wait to figure out how to really use it, and to that end, I'm having a blast. I'm also loving the opportunity to photograph things and places I've always loved about Dallas for the Diorama.
Have a groovy weekend, you sexy people!
