34/365 slightly spooky

Was trying for something else, a look at our local highway and light noise, but the quietness of these shadows and lights were more interesting tonight.

33/365 colorful light

Spent a good portion of the day at the dentist office, paying for my wasted youth, for what is hopefully the last time. Thank goodness kids get advanced stuff these days, the next generation should have it much easier.

The light they use picks up all kinds of colors — it can be pastel or bright, and even turned off it’s kicking light around.

They thought I was a little weird moving the light around during a break to take photos, but they liked the photos when I was done.

32/365 moon over morning

When I was sending Little Mister off to school, the moon was still up in the sky. Decided to give the camera found yesterday a shot, since I’d really like to take some night photos for this challenge.

Dawn was not quite approaching, so everything was still bathed in moonlight. Buses were running, cars were driving, and the moon still shone bright. I adore the moon glow on the porch columns.

The camera did pretty darn good.

31/365 singing still

Today, we found another camera. Tested it against the other 2 in the house. It’s a step up from my camera, but a step down from a dslr. I think it might do better with macros and adding a little depth of field I’m craving, but it makes it too difficult to do something that isn’t quite right.

I need to get my hands on a lens I can turn to focus. A tiny lcd screen and weird buttons just does not cut it for me.

Yes, it was frustrating. I think I’ll stick with my little standby until I can get something good. With a big ol lens I have to tote around, just like the good old days.

What I’d really like is a digital pinhole camera, but that ain’t gonna happen!

28/365 Homemade soup

homemade soup made with homemade stock cooked on a woodburning stove. It does not any cozier than this.

Which is good, because this ear infection really brings me down.

The light made everything pale, so I used the iPhone photoshop app to saturate a bit more, which made everything but the chicken more realistic. I promise, the chicken was NOT pink. It was leftovers from last nights chicken cooked in beer and herbs. More yummy flavor and all I had to do was throw stuff in a pot and put on the woodburning stove. Smelled like Grandma’s house. Which was good, because it got up to 5degrees today. Brrr.

27/365 moon

Had to visit the clinic unexpectedly, and saw the moon as I went in. I adore moon shots.

Diagnosed with an ear infection. What am I, 8?

Amazing how quickly it becomes painful and then spreads. No wonder the little ones get so loud.

So, tonight is for catching up on dvr, not work. Lying down is good. Very good.

26/365 brightness

A very gray day. The bright spot was heading out to the grocery store, where this happy little guy was.

*smiling’s my favorite*

25/365 bubbles

the perfect way to end the day.

We have a hot tub so bubble baths aren’t a common occurance here, but every once in a while bubbles are what’s required to take the cares away. These awesomely mounding bubbles are by Bath and Body Works’ Dream Bath, lavender chamomile scent.

Heavenly. Just heavenly.

It does scent the entire floor of the house when taking the bath, so choose something really nice. Then take a deep breath and relax.

Ahhhhh.

24/365 UP in bars

watching UP with Little Mister, got desperate for a shot. seeing the lines in the camera led to an interesting conversation about why that happens.

so the shot was totally worth it.

23/365 Sculpture

23/365 Sculpture

this could qualify as an antique — made in 1988 for a college project. the goal was a sculpture for a blind person. the wood and finish isn’t pretty but it’s really smooth.

my inspiration from cleaning and finding lost things.
