Photography 101

I am so excited! I have signed up for a Photography class at my local scrapbook store. It is being taught by a great photographer, Sally Kolar . The classes start in a couple of weeks and I am hoping to gain the skills needed to capture those photos in less than ideal settings. Lord knows, F-Stops, ISOs, to flash or not flash, confuse me to no end! The classes end with a photo field trip to test out our newly acquired skills. Wish me luck!

Ponder on this.....

We all truly understand that the economy is pretty bad at the moment. Businesses are cutting back on their spending and are doing what is necessary to keep the financial records in check. I agree with doing what needs to be done but really.......does giving me more than one packet of ketchup for a super size fry the answer?!!! Even when you ask for "extra ketchup" you only get another packet. It's a little crazy, in my opinion. So, I am now being very specific with my order. I want a super size fry with eight packets of ketchup! I really don't think that my extra ketchup packets are going to cause hamburger joints to go out of business. Now, to make the story even more crazy.....I go to the same hamburger joint drive thru every Friday morning for hotcakes. A little treat - I deserve it. Anywho, guess how many TUBS of syrup I get? TWO!! That's enough syrup to put me in sugar overdrive! I don't even need 1/2 of one tub! And surely, it cost more to manufacture TUBS of syrup vs. PACKETS of ketchup. It just has to!

Just a little something to ponder on the next time you are in that favorite fast food drive thru.....
Happy Friday!

Remember Me?

Yes, I'm still here. It's been awhile, hasn't it? Work has had me tied up where I couldn't see up from down but.....I did manage to get away for a little vacation to Myrtle Beach. The weather was a bit weird. One day it was sunny and warm and the next, freezing cold with winds blowing around 30mph. We had a great time. Probably one of the best vacations we've had since we went to Colorado last year. We didn't have any plans - just do what feels right when the moment strikes!

Here's a couple of photos:

A girl could get use to this view!

And this view isn't all that bad either!

When you get cold weather, deal with it! LOL!

I'm ready to go back - now!!
