Camera Part Deux Wednesday, Nov 12 2008 

11 November 2008
My wife’s camera died over the weekend. She’s been inconsolable ever since. We went and got her a new camera and then went to celebrate at Abuelo’s while she thumbed through her new manual.
Her Canon A520, while serving her well for three very full years, wasn’t enough for the the photobug that she’s turned into. This one, a Canon SX110IS, I think will suit her needs a little better.
New Camera
The Nikon D70 is next. 🙂
Cheers.

Hanging Cage Thing Sunday, Aug 3 2008 

1 August 2008
Outdoor cage-type thing; it hangs over the birdbath in the front yard. It’s one of the many acquisitions that my wife has made that, although it makes the front yard beautiful, I have no idea what its true purpose is.
Cage Thing
Cheers.

The Fleur de Lis Saturday, Aug 2 2008 

27 July 2008
The Fleur de Lis; a symbol steeped in antiquity. Also, a symbol that appears throughout my house in a variety of forms. The Fleur de Lis appears in my personal coat of arms, and thus in the marshalled coat that my wife & I share. I’m not sure which came first, MB’s love of the symbol, or the marshalled coat of arms. Either way, she’s adopted it almost as a person sigil and as mentioned before it appears in many nooks and crannies of my life. This is a candle holder in the bedroom.
Fleur de Lis
Cheers.

АЛЯСКА & My Wife Friday, Nov 9 2007 

4 September 2007
Sunday at faire. Sometimes they’re good days, sometimes they’re bad. This one was good. It went exceptionally fast and was great fun. I got to spend time, in alternating frequencies, with Lala, Christoph (the Insultor), Iris & Rose, Irish and Carrie, Larry, Denise & Allyson and when I went by the shop, my wife. On one trip to the shop, Iris took her brand new puppy with her so that Marita Beth could meet her. She’s a beautiful Husky/Wolf mix. She’ll be a wonderful handful cum companion for Iris in a few years. This is Marita Beth holding АЛЯСКА in the Pendragon Costume shop:

A more charming photo you’ll be hard-pressed to find.
Cheers.

038? Saturday, Sep 29 2007 

28 September 2007
TGIF. Can it be said too many times? It was quite the week, but the week was over…finally. Knowing, this I slept in a little later than I had been and took a leisurely path to work. On the way, I stopped to take photos of yet another natural gas well. But, I decided on this one of the lock “protecting” the gate instead:
038?
Not that the images of the area aren’t worth the posting, I just liked this one best. I believe I’m becoming a fan of the close-up, the bokeh and extreme depth of field photo. Not that I can’t see the beauty in or even utilize other styles, I just think this is where my personal photographic journey is taking me.
Cheers.

Abstract Weave Saturday, Sep 29 2007 

26 September 2007
As you’ve likely sussed out, I’m behind again. The rapid posting behaviour only occurs when I’m days behind, if not weeks. In this case, I’ve done two posts, with 3 more to go before being up-to-snuff. One of the most frustrating things that occurs when I’m this far behind is that I will receive a new “assignment” between taking the photo and actually posting about it. This photo
Weave
would be great for the current assignment “Man-Made Abstract”, but since I’ve not technically received that assignment yet, I will simply use this as “Yet Another Day in Which I didn’t Take an Early Photo” image. I hope you don’t mind.
Cheers.
