Dogs. Fiber Arts. Occasional Cats, Trolleys & Trains & Flowers. And other moments from my life that I find interesting.
**Motorola ic902 - Probably the best of the (poor) choices with Nextel for a camera phone.
**Canon Powershot A430 - Oh, how I love thee, let me count the ways....Primary camera - if it a good photo, this took it.

How friggin' cool is this?!

This camera was brought back from Japan by my dad in 1969 - it is a
Petri V6 manual SLR. I've brought it home to see what I can make of it
- it's been sitting in the closet for 30 some-odd years back at home.
I've already found online the manual for it, and the manual for the CDs
exposure meter.

So, practice will make...better, I hope.

Aside from the fact that me putting on makeup is pretty much tantamount
to gilding shit, I think I did OK for the first time I've worn it in
about two years. It at least evened out my skin tone, which is what I
was after - I seem to have picked the proper color. Definitely need to
practice more with the eyeliner though, it's a wee bit uneven.

Stopped by BN this afternoon...

Since we were going right past there anyway, and got some educational
materials to help figure out what to do with the camera besides the
basics, and what I am actually taking photos of!

Post garden

We have a pylon sign at work that has this little 4 foot square garden
around it, and it's in full bloom right now. All these photos are from
today. If anyone could ID the little blue fuzzball flowers, I'd
appreciate it, I just love them. The third photo is the little purple
ones waiting to happen :-)

Time to get with the program here

So, found out that I didn't get the job. Which I kind of figured after
not getting called sooner. I'm over it - I figure it's their loss.
But, I did kind of wonder if maybe improving my appearance a bit for
interviews might help. I always dress well, and my hair is always neat
and controlled, but I don't wear makeup. Why, you ask? Lack of
experience, mainly. I used to have horrific hormone imbalance problems
that made my skin very unpredictable (might be dry, might be oily - I
never knew from one week to the next) and extremely sensitive. So
putting stuff on it - no. But said hormone problems are pretty much
gone, and my skin has settled into a normal-to-dry range. It's color
has also settled back to it's ivoryness that it should have had all
along. So, makeup. All very conservative neutral colors that even if I
screw it up at first it wont show :-). It'll be time to add some color
a little while down the road once I gain experience. This weekend I
plan to spend some time playing around with it. Chose the brand I did
for two reasons - they make it easy to find the right colors for your
skin tone, and none of the products I looked at contained any nut oils.

Little visitor on the porch

We get these little visitors all summer here. Each year we spend a few
weeks having to wreck their webs when they insist on building them
across the entrance to the porch - the only way into the house - but
then they get the idea and build along the rails instead. Lovely wee thing.

Just trying to get the theme the way I want it...

Header image, based on the original "Clean Colours" theme image.....

ETA 06/15: Caine, how's this font, better? Easier to see? Once I shut off the font override I noticed the smallness of the previous font.

ETA: Heh. And it *worked*. Totally mad props to Joe_Archer for answering my question on the forum, and mat for recommending the Web Developer Firefox extension. And to Nicolas Fantino (ala_747), whoever you are, for the original Clean Colours CSS.
