That first weekday morning when you realize you’re being gently woken by the sunlight streaming in through the blinds and the sounds of lawnmowers running and kids playing, rather than being jarred awake by a nagging alarm in the dark – that’s when you know summer vacation is here!
Today’s prompt – capture the colors of comfort. Well, at the end of a long/bad day my bed, a big stack of books and some rum are fairly comforting.
I’m a complete introvert – but that doesn’t mean that there isn’t a lot going on behind my glasses. I have repeatedly been told (by idiots) that I read too much and that I think too much. Is there even such a thing? I let that give me a complex between the ages of 14 and 40, but I’m embracing it now. Despite the introversion and crippling shyness, I do love to talk and share things – all anyone ever has to do is ask.
Summer means it is time to get a big ‘ol library book, climb into to bed in the evening and read, read, read to escape the heat. This month, it is all about Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Thanks to Piewacket for bringing this book to my attention – it is a page turner! If you haven’t ever visited Piewacket, I suggest you check it out. Her blog has beautiful photos and plenty of neat stories.
I’m going to climb into bed and stay there until April. Even a Red Bull that came packaged in a tennis-ball-can-sized container couldn’t get things perking today. There wasn’t a nice-looking sky outside – so no pictures there…and I’m pretty sure I’ve already taken photos of everything in the house!
That’s okay though, because by next week I’ll be on the bullet-train to bokehville! Scraped up ALL my pennies and ordered a Nikon AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G DX lens. Can. Not. Wait!!!!!
I literally cannot sleep unless I spend some time right before bed reading…lately I’ve been reading Digital Photography Masterclass. I tend toward nonfiction, though sometimes I go for novels.
I wanted try setting this up on the timer then seeing how the finished product came out. It’s kinda grainy, I think because I had the exposure too short for the light conditions…
