and now for something different
i didn't take this picture, my friend sanja did. this is sanja's daughter reese. she is quite the beauty, as you can plainly see. sanja sent me some of her thanksgiving photos yesterday and this picture was among them. i saw some cool photo potential there, so i cropped it square and applied some serious photoshop actions. :-) love it!

what do you think?

sort of a day trip
today r wanted to go see the l0st sea, which is an underground cave with a big pond inside. we went last year, when v was much smaller and more easily bribed into good behavior with goldfish crackers.

The Lost Sea - sort of 011
this is the tunnel that is the entrance to the cave.

The Lost Sea sort of 021
this is v in the gift shop after we decided to skip the tour because v wouldn't stop screeching when r wouldn't let her climb the walls of the cave.

The Lost Sea sort of 026
this is v while i tried to keep her occupied while r bought a coffee mug, postcard, and magnet.

The Lost Sea sort of 030
this is one of the many, many shots i took with all different sorts of setting combinations on my camera, trying to catch both the flare of sun coming through the trees and the gorgeous trees/forest floor. in this shot i got a pretty good picture of the forest, but not so great of the flare. what i think is cool is that i did not punch up the colors at all in photoshop (though i did a few other things) - these are the colors the camera captured.

The Lost Sea sort of 033
in this one, the flare is great but the forest is too dark.

The Lost Sea sort of 008
the turnstyle at the entrance to the tunnel.

so we tried to take the tour, but turned around before we got to the boats. they were really nice about it and gave us our money back, so i'd say we still had a good trip.

what i learned about my camera this week: that i can make the flash brighter or less bright. who knew? well, plenty of people did, but i didn't. in fact, if you have a good point and shoot you can probably do the same thing. it's really useful so that you can shoot indoors in darker conditions and not have people's faces be so bright white. or when shooting outside under a really bright sun - you can turn your flash on but turn it down so that the person's face won't be dark. i wish i'd known that when i was shooting these.

dinner & stuff
today we went to the park and it was just beautiful. we gathered about 22 bright red maple leaves to "show daddy" when we got home. unfortunately, i didn't take my camera. we also met a nice mom with her 3 really nice kids all age 4 and under who actually looked more tired and worn out than i would've thought possible - and i know a lot about sleep deprivation.

after nap, we read a lot of books out on the porch.
dinner and stuff 018

dinner was good fun. we listened to some music and v entertained us by screaming and laughing "just like dido."
