I’m sitting in my favorite chair, checking my mail and pricing calibration software. I’m going to end up buying it because it’s the right thing to do if I’m going to take my photography seriously.
Oh, geez. I never wanted to take my photography seriously. But so many friends and family members are telling me that I should. I have no grandiose notions, and mainly just want to offer nature photography for sale on a decent site other than etsy. I may even do a couple of photo shoots and actually have one scheduled for Friday afternoon. I’m going to be photographing guitars.
I hope the light will be good.
First time visitors aren’t going to be very impressed with the photographic offerings in this post, however. But they weren’t meant to impress.
They’re just random shots from the past few days.
I took this picture on Saturday. I can’t believe how many comments I got from people who were considering getting one of these.
Pool: WalMart, $25.
Float: BJ’s. $15.
The only problem, besides the float being too long, is having to take it down and set it up again. It’s worth it when it’s supposed to get really hot, though.
Yesterday evening, my husband told me to come to the back door to look at the sky.
A bad hair day for a lady cardinal.
Look closer (you can click to embiggen).
A good hair day for this red-bellied woodpecker.
Total rock star look here.

Oh, and as long as we’re on the subject of hair - after weeks of scaring myself every time I looked in the mirror, I finally broke down and made an appointment at the beauty salon. I had tried convincing myself that the streaks of gray were very becoming but it wasn’t until I shared my thoughts with my sister that I changed my mind. She just seemed so surprised.
And that was that.
I know I rarely do this, and after I took it, I thought that maybe I should have dressed appropriately, or put on makeup for Pete’s sake, but I yam what I yam. And my hair isn’t so scary anymore.
And I have giant man hands.
Until tomorrow, then . . .
