I got Ali and Kevin to come and hang out under the bridge yesterday so I could shoot them. This time, I was on "this side" of the road and on the top step of a tall stepladder. It was the middle of the day, so no dramatic light or anything, but that's okay -- the setting is pretty dramatic all on its own. And this time, I used my 24-105mm lens and got a little zoom on. As usual, I'm thinking of 10 different things I'd like to try next time -- and I think I could talk these two into a next time!
It wasn't all Typepad comment angst all weekend...
I made a quick trip south with Katie on Saturday. She was contracted to do some work at my sister's and I went along for the ride. I shared the driving, took some photos, did a lot of knitting -- relaxed. It was good. I should take some photos of the knitting, shouldn't I? It's coming along.
Sunday and Monday were spent putzing around at home -- computer/photo stuff, laundry, cooking, all the kids in and out. Maddy left yesterday afternoon with a laundry basket of clean clothes and some grocery money. About an hour and a half later I get a phone call, "What street do I turn on again?" Honestly, I never knew the girl was so directionally challenged.
The daughter of a family friend who will be attending Lawrence University flew in from Oregon late yesterday and I picked her up at the airport. She was hungry but also tired, so while I made shishkabobs and got the grill fired up (I did it!) she fell asleep on the couch -- and fell asleep so soundly that I really didn't want to wake her, but knew that she'd wake up STARVING in the middle of the night if I didn't. So I did. And we all had a nice meal together.
I am so thankful for all of the suggestions about the blog and hosting and domain names. (I have had victoria-pictoria.com for quite a while, now, by the way, and have blog.victoria-pictoria.com as a subdomain for the photog blog -- which is, actually, also a Typepad blog). I am also thankful that, even with the long holiday weekend, our voices have been heard by Typepad and have confidence that we will be well represented in negotiations by Norma, one of my fellow "legends of Typepad." Heheheh.
(What day is it today??? This is going to be another screwy week!)
