Yesterday we spent the morning in Virginia Beach. A little girl walked over with this in her hand and showed us what she found. After I took this photo, she carried it into the beach house to show her mom, who I’m sure was more than happy to have this fine specimen in her kitchen.
Stamps from Hong Kong. A painting Jenny ordered on eBay from Hong Kong arrived this week, the stamps are more interesting than the painting -they didn’t send the painting pictured in the eBay auction.
We decided to drop having themes for the photo of the week, giving us the freedom to take pictures of whatever strikes our fancy.
This is the first “photo of the week.” I’ve been wanting to get back in to photography for some time now. I took classes in college and have always taken pictures here and there, but have not done anything formal lately. Having a structured way of tracking progress seems like a good way for me to motivate myself to keep going with it. Right now Garrett (a friend) and Jenny (my wife) are the only other particpants, but anyone is welcome to join. This is the first week (April 11-17th, 2005) and the theme was Spring. Next week the theme is Architecture. We’ll keep the themes simple and broad at first, and as we improve specify in both theme and technical requirements.
This week I only had my camera (a Sony DSC-S75, nice but I’d like to upgrade) for one day–Jenny had it while she visited with her family. Fortunately it was a beautiful spring day and I was able to snap a couple shots that I think are interesting. Above is the shot I chose as my photo of the week.
