April flew right by!
Last Tuesday was a "5th Tuesday" and that means a special night out for the Tuesday night knit group. The group alternates 1st & 3rd and 2nd & 4th weeks between two coffee shop locations, but it's a bit more festive when there's a 5th week -- this time it was Basil Cafe. Yum.
So far, May is dragging -- in the way that the days/minutes can drag but the weeks will surely fly by. Vacation time will be here before I know it and there's lots to prep for, both in terms of traveling and upcoming obligations.
I treated myself to a set of cell phone lenses from Photojojo, among them a macro lens (as well as wide, fisheye, super fisheye, telephoto, and polarizer) -- I don't have them yet, but I can't wait to play around with them! I'll be taking my Canon along to Scotland, of course, and considered taking a wide-angle lens again, but not only is that expensive ($2300+ to buy, $200+ to rent), it's also very heavy. The camera on my phone is no slouch, and this way, for about $100, I have a bunch of my favorite types of play-around lenses for always. I will use these much more.
Happy Mother's Day!
I don't know if I'll be able to keep up for the whole month, but it's Macro May! And I don't know if anyone else is taking macro photos this month, but I can't think of May without also thinking "macro."
Wednesday with Grandma : Sound asleep
I've signed on to do a big gig in Milwaukee next month, hiring my niece to help, and tomorrow I'll drive down with Ali & Junah to meet up and do a little reconnaissance. The event will be at Lake Park, and it's going to be a blast to shoot there!
Wednesday with Grandma : Waking up
I'm aiming to start throwing stuff into my suitcase this weekend, too. Not officially packing, but I have so many little notes to myself floating around -- both physically and in my head -- about what to take and how to pack... I really need to start making it visual. The main goal is to pack light and that means thinking and planning. I think it's when I wait 'til the last minute, as I often do, that I end up taking way too much -- 4 pairs of pants, 6 tops, 2 cardigans, 4 pairs of shoes for a weekend; packing for every possible scenario and/or mood and just not thinking.
Have a great weekend!
