My blog is a diary of my life and though I enjoy and am thrilled that anyone reads it and comments, I started out blogging for me. When I go back and read posts that I made in 2005 or 2006 (or even yesterday!), I often smile at where I was then, what I was doing and at things that went on in my life.
One of the funniest things ever on my blog was back in November, 06. This post and this post. Vince had not yet told his employer in Kentucky that he was leaving so I had to be vague about what we were doing. It had to seem pretty stupid to everyone that Vince and I left Kentucky and drove to Missouri, knowing we were running into a massive snowstorm. But, had we not gone that weekend and found a house, we would not have been able to close prior to our moving date. With Chad starting the new semester in MO and Vince starting the new job on 1/2/07, we just had to be moved in by January 1.
Nevada, MO is such a tiny little place . . I had no idea I had a blog reader living there. She saw the picture of the snow and she recognized right off that we were in Nevada. She wrote me . . thinking we were stranded in Nevada due to the snow. I explained to her that we were moving there but I hadn’t been able to say it on the blog yet.
So, sometimes, my readers are probably shaking their heads thinking why did she write that? Well, sometimes it’s just something I want to document and today, I’m playing with my new camera. I just love it!! I’ve been reading and learning about exposure today. Truly, all I know about cameras is how to push the button. I don’t know what aperture, f-stop, exposure or any of that other technical stuff means but I’m learning. And, one day when I’m a world famous photographer my pictures are decent, I can look back and remember how little I knew on 8/10/08 about my camera.
None of these pictures have been altered in photoshop — this is just what I was able to do by changing the exposure. In both sets, the top photo is the default setting and the bottom picture has the exposure changed to -0.7.
The first set is my neighbor’s flag.
The second set is a green bush in front of my house. Told you I have nothing photo worthy around here.
OK . . I’m going to sew. A little bird just reminded me this is Quiltathon Weekend and I should be sewing instead of playing with my camera!
