What Am I Doing Here?

This is my attempt to take one picture every day for an entire year. So far, so good . . . .

This is probably the sweetest picture I've taken in a long time!  It took a bit of doing to get the duck to tilt its head at just the right angle, but I really love the emotion of it.  And of course, there's a baby head in a jar.

Anybody remember that old song 'Who Killed Bambi' on The Sex Pistol's Great Rock and Roll Swindle?

Another last minute shot.  I sat in a dark room and exposed for the candle light.  The overall effect was quite nice - I tried manipulating as a black and white, but i wasn't as happy with the results.

There were these clouds that looked pretty ominous over the park, so I got a quick shot.  I didn't get many pictures that day . . .

Rachel was doing laps in the cul-de-sac.  Think's she's just about ready for Pelotonia.

Here we have a striped and burned marshmallow.  By accident, I deleted some better shots, so I am left with this one.

While I was getting gas, I stole around the other side of my car to get this shot.  It's not a great shot (or subject), but it's out of the ordinary, anyway . . . .

There were a few pinwheels arranged as flowers on the side of the road.

This little man said that he was neither tired or hot!

Rachel's little blue dog has a particular skill - it can do headstands!

The kids had a blast with the sparklers.  I ended up joining in the action.

July 3, 2010

When we took the kids to see the fireworks, I had quite woefully left my SD card in my laptop.  I didn't realize my mistake until I got to the event.  I started taking pictures of the kids rolling down the hill and received the dreaded 'No Card in the Camera.'  My youngest let me borrow his card, so I tried to maximize the 1 gig of space he had.  On his camera, he had some 200 pictures left.  On mine, around 35.

Vim: . . . And how many f**kin' wild cows have you seen recently?

Colin:    And how many cows have you seen sitting next to the fire, nestling over slippers, Alan? Not a lot! Probably about none, I think, is probably the amount you've seen . . . Oh, go and fetch the paper from the newsagent's, DAISY!
