Today is…

Posted by MWPA on January 22, 2009

Abstract natureA house work day, I have decided I want to spring clean-even though its not quite spring yet. I want to rearange the craft room, to utalise the space in there, as it is a small room , and with all my junk in it, it feels alot smaller! If I get all the spring cleaning doe, I am going to go to the dollar store and see if I can pick up some valentine day props for my photography prject and maybe stop in at the craft store next door and buy some fabrics for back grounds.

Its quite a cold day today, although not as cold as it was last night,the sun is shining, which makes it feel a tiny bit warmer than it really is. I am looking forward to the spring weather, when I can go out side with just a hoodie and jeans on, and be plenty warm enough taking pictures-right now, my hands may freeze to the camera when I am outside!

Todays picture was taken a couple of weeks ago at Sandy Bottom Nature Park I focused on the branches and let the water go out of focus-this kind of out of focus is called Bokeh. The lighter spots are the suns reflection on the water, I like how the branches have a tiny bit of light high lighting them.

Well I supose I must stop wasting ime by blogging and get to work on this cleaning frenzie that is going to be done, I am going to turn the music up loud, sing and dance while I clean!

Poor Will

Posted by MWPA on November 25, 2008

I am not sure how many times during the night Will got up to try and clear his chest and throat of nasty cold-but it seemed like a lot, he seems to have caught a Yukky cold which has kept him from going to work today its 1230 and he is still in bed-although that is usual for him when he is not working I don’t normally hear the loud snores and all the tossing and turning he is doing-he is normally a peaceful sleeper.

One of the worst things about Will having a cold is that he likes to use Vick’s Vapor Rub-and I hate the stuff. It just stinks, but if it helps relieves his stuffiness then I cant complain.

I am waiting for him to get up so I can clean the bed sheets-Its my day off and I want to do house work, but right now I am trying to be quiet so I don’t wake him up. I think I will take a shower and wash my hair, then maybe make Quiche-I made one last week and it was delicious, so I will make another today.

Turned out to be a chilly one…

Posted by MWPA on October 28, 2008

After my new windows were installed, I eventually made it out with Ember and her friend Cortney for a photo shoot. There was not much light left by the time we arrived at Oyster Point City Center, I had a few ideas in my mind what I wanted to do, and achieved two of them, I wanted to get a photograph of one of the ‘models’ leaning on the railings and another spinning round the lampost.

Even though the sun was shining and the morning was warm, as the day came

to an end there was a bitter wind with an icy rain falling, so it ment while we were doing the photographs we were all freezing, my hands got so cold holding my camera that I lost all feeling in my thumb-which has never happened before, so it looks like I will be investing in some gloves or handwarmers…

These are four of the best pictures from last night-spinning around the lamp post, leaning on the railings and some head/shoulder shots. (click to enlarge)

Eventhough it was dark and cold, I am glad I got some practice with my flash, although its still pot luck if i get a good shot or not with it, I have to keep adjusting my settings for the flash.

Ember and Cortney-Thanks for coming out!

Will Is Home Again.

Posted by MWPA on April 22, 2008

Well Will lasted til 10.00am this mornig before he came home form work, he stopped by the doctors to see if he needed to be taking any medicine to help relive his symptoms, and the doctor said he has bad allergies and a old combined, so he is on allergy relief and cold relief meds. As soon as he came home he went to bed, even though he actually slept well last night he is still really tiered.

I walked to the shops, I had to walk the long way on the road as the short cut through the woods was flooded, and bought some cambels chicken noodle soup for him and a part baked french bread, so when he wakes up he can have something to eat that slides down easily.

Im making carrot soup for my self as I really dont want to get sick and carrot soup always helps fight off bad bugs and colds. I already have a slight headache so Im hoping thats not the start of something. Even Mellow was sick thismorning-his was just a hairball, but gross all the same.

The weather here today is dark dismal and humid, its so nasty, I cant wait for this weather stustem to pass. At least we are no longer under flood warnings.

Well I suppose I better get on with my carrot soup making and tidying up the house….
