A Week of Sun July 23 - 29, 2008  

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

Dedicated to my husband, Matt, this week. For all the times he sat patiently waiting when I ran out of a restaurant to take a picture of the sun setting.

When I thought back about the pictures from this week I couldn't think if a single, interesting picture. I blame it on the weather. It's hot and humid. A haze hangs over everything. Even the thunderstorms are lackluster, like they just can't get going because it's too damn hot.

Anyway, there were some decent shots, so I was pleasantly surprised. Next week will be better. I hope anyway, if the weather decides to cooperate again.

    OG - you sure did have some winners there. Particularly liked number 3, which I'm sure Chileana Mama will agree on.

    Hey, The worst is over now
    Yes, It's going to be alright
    The mornin' sun is shinning like
    a red - rubber - ball...

    Tell Matt - good job. And say hi to mom and dad. :)

    WOW. Haha, John, nope, sorry #3 wasn't on my top picks. I liked 1,4 and 5.

    Oh, and now I read your comment. Yes, I wholeheartedly agree with #4. :)

    O.G. have you thought about investing in some serious camera equipment?

    Mamacita - I corrected myself. Look at my next comment.

    Evo: Thanks! That was my favorite too this week. :)

    Mamacita: I think I should learn Photoshop first before I worry about camera equipment. It'll be next year, in any case, although I'm hoping to take a digital camera course in the spring too. I think a tripod would go a long way towards making my pictures better. I have so many blurry pictures in low light that you guys never see.

    This morning it was foggy and I wanted to take a picture without flash so that I caught the foggy trees in the background and not the droplets of water in the air. It took forever to get a good picture without flash and I still won't be sure how they look until I upload them to my computer. They look fine on the camera screen, but the screen is so small that sometimes pictures that look good on it are blurry when I look at them on my computer screen...

    I know, TMI!
