Thinking of you today and always Darling!!!!!!!!
Hope you have a fun day and a great Photo Shoot this evening.
DH is off and away tonight, and for the first time in ages I have the Bose Stereo cranked up to the MAX (thank goodness for double glazing!!) with Sam Sparrow – Black and Gold , Mumford and Sons (amongst others) playing … missing my huge NY music room with big built in speakers and neigbours an acre away – this stuff is played best UBER loud!
Even in confined spaces though it makes for great “art making” music (for me)!
Soothes the bitter pill of a frustrating day spent acquiring a NC Driver’s License. First adventure to the DMV last week revealed the need not only to present paperwork etc but to sit the TEST, AGAIN, despite having previously had an NC dl. Back home to read the manual.
Second trip this morning and I am 70% of the way complete before it becomes apparent that I should have brought my “ALIEN” card with me, (aka Green Card) – not previously specified as necessary.
There are an enourmous amount of unattractive expletives that would adequqately represent my sentiments about this proceedure. Firstly, since I dont TALK like anyone else around here, it would have been nice if they had suggested that I bring my Green Card with me when I first called to make enquiries about what was needed to get an NC license (no I don’t sleep with my Green Card in my wallet and I am clearly NOT a local!).
Second, why if I have no infringements on my licesnse EVER do I have to take the damned test over and over again for NC.. You don’t need to do this in DE or NY, you just roll up, pay money and get a new card.
An atrocious experience to say the least.
And a definite excuse to lay on the Head Banging music full blast!!!!!!!!
I bought these fab red and gold gerberas at the grocery store the other day with full intentions of taking some pix of said same flowers. Well, one thing led to another and I did not get around to picture taking and now they are on their second to last legs so I figured it was do or die today!
I wanted ALL the flower in all it’s glory, so tripod, macro lens, ambient light, and cranked the aperture up (or down depending on how you view things) to get a nice long exposure and max depth of field. Ubber pretty despite the startings of crispy edges – which is totally my fault for waiting.
This is pretty well the SOOC image with a little sharpening.
THEN of course I had to fiddle…..
The portrait “pano” format is one that is often forgotten but actually presents quite well and looks really good when it’s printed up. Also makes for nice Moo cards and gift tags!
