Margie is at the beach. Her photos yesterday were amazing but they kind of made me feel bad in a jealous kind of way. I know she is really working on taking great photos on Manual and I'm jealous because I want to take good photos too, only I haven't been working at it, heck I didn't take a single picture last week. There was only one way to remedy this problem. I needed to get out and take some pictures. Nothing like a little sibling rivalry to get you up and moving ;-)
I didn't move far, I walked across the street and down to the next property.
I have had a rough weekend, heck I had a rough week. Last weekend I developed a pain in my knee. It hurt but I hadn't done anything. I ended up going to the chiropractor three times and he diagnosed tight muscles that were pulling. So the stretching and icing routine began but by Thursday the headache had arrived. On Friday I had a less intense but still lingering headache and my knee was starting to hurt even more. I was sad because it seemed to be getting worse.
We headed in to Toronto Friday night to go out for dinner and see our friend Scott Pietrangelo perform. I was a trooper, I thought the distraction would make me feel better. The evening ended badly, a $60.00 parking ticket for parking in a spot that had four signs, you can park here now, you can't park here now, we'll tow you away and never stop here. Read individually we thought we fell into the you can park here now category. Apparently we fell into the you can't park here now category. It seems that you must read the signs in a counter-clockwise counter-intuitive fashion starting at the top right. What you really need is an interpreter because it took us five minutes to figure out where we had gone wrong. You can park here now between 9:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. and then in tiny faded letters, if you have a permit. Of course, we didn't have a permit.
Guess what we found last night …
took a cue from you two and went out for a walk with my camera after
work the other day – everything is still covered in ice and it is
gorgeous looking! what do you think of these photos? xo
not bad!!! xo mom
389 shots, and not shots of vodka or jamieson's! photos. that's how many photos i took on my road trip today. i went to montreal to see the babies. before i left i had an agenda. i wanted to think about my trip to florida, and plan a little, and i thought about not taking any pictures on automatic. everything manual.
I just spent the last three hours in iphoto and have deleted 2,000 photos. I am feeling very bleary eyed now. You see, I was quickly approaching 10,000 photos and that felt excessive. Which means that 8,000 is not excessive, right? Ah well, I feel better, like I've done something really good.
So, this may seem silly but I don't know where my sister is. She wasn't around yesterday so I suspect she has taken a road trip and we will be seeing some pics of the her grandbabies real soon.
