Too hot

Friday, August 28, 2009


Um. 109? In Orange County?

I've been clear on my feelings about the desert. For someone who hates dryness, August through November is a vile, vile time in Southern California.

So, instead of acknowledging the heat, I'm going to get even more psyched for sweet breezy humidity in January. (Hawaii!!)

But, actually, that picture is of the plumeria on my patio. :o)

Photo Outings

Thursday, August 20, 2009

What do you get when you mix a modern Canon DSLR with a vintage Argus?





We took a field trip to the park to play with our very different cameras and had a successfully artsy time. The vintage one belonged to my grandparents, before my mom saved it (plus a few others) from the Good Will pile. Phew.

Let the fun begin. :o)

More photos here.

New ACEOs

Saturday, August 15, 2009



Available in my Etsy shop! (Click on them to see the other lighting conditions.)

I'm currently working on 9 different paintings right now. So, where there has been an absence of painting related blog posts lately, there will soon be a flood of them. I cannot *wait* to start taking pictures of them with our new camera. The detail and difference when getting shots of these ACEOs was obvious immediately.
