These last few days have flown by again, it seems that the days just blend into each other. I had a dentist appointment and need a crown, yuck. That's money I would have rather spent on a new lens :)
I had the chimney cleaned, they were here less than 1/2 hour and it cost 169$. Is that absurd or what? Geez oh man, the money just keeps flying out of the window.
I have been talking to this guy at Nikon about my camera and he made me do a few more pics with the same settings. Seems that my D40 kept upping the shutter speed without my noticing, that's how the picture was so much lighter. I didn't see too much of a difference in the new shots. I don't know anymore, maybe it's just me after all. I still would like for somebody to just check it out for me.
Here is my picture for today
I found this lonely ball after the snow melted, it seems to be waiting for the dog to come back out and play.
Here is yesterday's
I cooked this BokChoy with a little sesame oil, it was really good and fast.
I have been taking a photo every day so far, posting at the Flickr Group to keep me honest :) They are not necessarily pictures for my 365 pages, just pics for practice. There is so much to learn. I was just reading my Nikon book again today and I actually understood a little more. Reading about exposure now. Learn, learn, learn....
Isn't this one cool? It's my candle on the radiator...
I just made this page today. Actually it was the cover for the book I am putting together for Gabrielle, I just altered it a little to make it into a page for myself. The book is at ArtsCow. I have never used them before, but have those coupons for free books, so I thought I would give them a try. Today the site was not cooperating, I had to finish the cover etc and could not get it to work. Don't know why because I had no trouble doing the pages the other day. I'll try to finish it tomorrow.
I did another page, but it was for a challenge that's not due til next week, so I can't put it out yet.
I used the pictures from Sunday though and made this page
I used the block design from Debbie Hodge's class, which is really good by the way! She is such an awesome teacher! Of course I am already behind with the lessons. I couldn't print yesterday's lesson, because I was out of ink. By the time I got back, it was to late to start. Today was wasted trying to finish that book, which didn't work out. There is always tomorrow.
On the 20th there is going to be an all day chat at Designer Digitals. Make sure to stop by, I am doing one hour this time, it's going to be on brushes and there is going to be a nice freebie (there are freebies for every hour that day) Should be fun, I can't believe I volunteered for this, yikes!
Well, the movie and hubby are yelling for me.....
