I’m about to take you all on a journey of miscellaneous, k?
First, You Capture is going to be a bit late on Monday, in the afternoon, mayhaps? I’m quite behind and have physical therapy early in the morning so my day is going to pushed back a bit. In the meantime, if you haven’t participated before, now is a great time to grab your camera and take some photos. This week’s theme is “play.” Join in! It’s great fun.
Last Thursday, I was taught how to use one crutch. I was given the instructions to practice a few times a day in my hallway.
I really, really liked the freedom of HAVING A FREE HAND, so I’ve basically ditched the other crutch about 80% of the time. I’m not sure that’s okay, I’ll confess to my therapist tomorrow but I’m hoping she’s okay with it. I’ve been able to clean and carry water! It’s amazing.
(note: this is just with a boot on. Without a boot, I still can’t bear any weight on my foot without a boot or a crutch.)
Last week, Anna and Noah started school. They were both crazy excited to get started.
Can you believe how old they are? And speaking of old, next year, Eli will be starting preschool and in just over a month, Clara will be ONE. I can’t even believe it.
And here’s something fun for you. This is Anna and Noah in 2009. This comparison is great for two things. It shows how much they’ve grown but also, in 2009, I shot that photo with a Nikon D80 (a great DSLR) in automatic. The image on the right was shot in manual.
You guys, when you can control the settings, the results will amaze you!
I’m going to be teaching a shooting in manual workshop the weekend of September 15 and 16. It’s two days and about four hours per day. I’ve taught it once and had fantastic results. If you’re interested, send me an email! I’ll post more on my photography blog tomorrow. Only four participants per class due to the one-on-one nature of the class.
So, there’s that. And I just want to leave you guys with some wise works to start off your week.
Make it happen, friends.
