Rough day at work today. Having many issues on many levels. Makes things tough. It'll get better tho.
A dear friend gave me this little about 8" tall tripod. Its quite heavy duty, very solid, fits in my camera case - used it for this photo. Its really nice to have it be so portable, and such a real piece of equipment.

Oh, and this shot reminds me of Wall-E, so I called it Green-E instead.

Oh, I remember the weird cropping was to get rid of something else stupid in the picture.Anyway, I was sad that Mickey Rourke did not win best Actor Oscar tonight, not that I'm a big fan but man, that movie - The Wrestler - is just seared into my brain. I was trying to tell Hubby why I thought he did such a good job, and I realized it was because it didn't seem like he was acting, it was like watching someone live their life. I am however a HUGE Sean Penn fan (so glad he went back with his wife) and so as long as Br*d P*tt didn't get it, I'm happy with it.

Would still smell... actually they don't seem to have a scent that I remember.
So Auds over at Barking Mad is having a contest to win a $250 Target gift card (Target is my Most Favorite Store Ever, really it is). I have to list and link my 5 favorite posts.
It was kind of tough - most of my posts are just individual photos with little or no narrative, so here are 5 of my faves.

Hope you enjoy this months entry! Go check out the other enties here.
This photo is from my January Photo Safari with Himself. That phrase has become common verbage around my house. Momma - when are you going on another photo safari - can I come? my son announced he wants to be a professional photographer when he grows up. He also wants to be a sculptor. My budding artist. (and yes this photo was a previous photo of the day - I'll post another original later)

So, I saw The Wrestler last night. Still haven't decided if I liked it or not. Anyone else seen it?

So anyway. Going out for dinner tonight and a Movie - the Wrestler is supposed to be good.
Stop back for today's Photo of the Day.

Been a rough week at our house. Hubby just found out he's got Walking Pneumonia - and was off two days last week. Himself is just getting over pink eye (with which I had to take 1 1/2 days off work) then this evening when he got home from school he had 104 degree temp. It did come down with Tylenol, so thats something. I'm so thankful I'm healthy so I can take care of everyone else. Except the now we're both scared to take more time off work because honestly, we're worried that too much time off means unreliable and Expendable. F*ck! Its so frustrating.
So I guess I'll just have a beer, watch The Office, maybe an episode or two of Seinfeld, and go to bed. Hopefully things will look better or healthier in the morning.

This is the way I really like to shoot photos. This photo is SOOC (straight out of the camera) - no cropping, no color correction, I didn't mess with the contrast, just resized it from 3.6MB to 228KB so it would load easier. Of course my "photo editing" consists of MS Picture Editor which is kind of a joke - but suits me just fine.
This is a Hydrangea in front of my parents house. I spoke of them HERE. And here it is all dead and cool looking in the late afternoon winter light. This seems to be a different variety than the ones here on the West Coast.
