Tis a bit gray and wet here but it's a good morning anyway. I'm here. That's always a good sign that it's a good morning. As long as I have life in me, it's definitely a good morning.
I must tell you that I started this post about two hours ago and then I got sidetracked. I had made a new rose photo art and while I was deciding whether to post it today or wait, a lot of memories came flooding back. So I brought the photo art up in to Photoshop and used it as a background for the memories. I call this "Roses In December".
Left to right, Michael has been gone since November, 2007; my brother Artie, October, 2010; and my daughter Kerri Anne, February 2005. The losses have been quite heavy, but oh, the memories are so sweet.
The other day I had stopped to take some photos of the sky. It was filled with such gorgeous fluffy white clouds that I just coulnd't resist.
While I was shooting these photos, I tried once again to photograph the sun. I have never been able to get a good shot of the sun because it is so bright. But this time, I was armed with some new ideas that I learned in Hummie's Photo Class about Spot Metering and Exposure Lock. So here is the same sky with a fantastic sun.
Tell me, isn't this really cool? My secret? Just before shooting the photo, focus on something darker (the ground or a dark wooden post) while holding the shutter button halfway down to lock the exposure, then re-focus on the sun and press the shutter button all the way down. Voila! A fantastico sun!
This is just not my morning for posting. In between uploading these two photos, someone knocked on my door and Tootsie gave me a gift in the form of something odorous on the scatter rug out in the laundry room. So now I had to tend to the person at the door, clean up this most wonderful gift, sweep the floor, put down a new scatter rug, and then pop the soiled rug into the washing maching.
This is probably a good time for me to finish up here, and see about some lunch for my adorable Tootsie. So, till tomorrow, Y'all have a wonderful day.
Hugs, Edna B.
