076/365 stpatricksday

once, long long ago, St Patrick’s Day used to mean something to me. Not anymore. I didn’t even remember to wear green today. The cafeteria at work has green cupcakes so I got one and brought it home and it became today’s shot. I think it has now served its purpose and probably will be thrown away since I ate a few pieces of coconut that fell off as I was setting up the shot and it was pretty nasty… Guess I could have guessed that from looking at it. Anyway, for those of you celebrating or enjoying, Happy St Patrick’s Day!!

well, my Atlanta sunrise / sunset location list just increased by one. Riding on my bike this past weekend I decided to explore the cemetery near my house. I was in for a treat when I made it to the top of hill and looked back – a full unobstructed view of Atlanta – downtown, midtown, and buckhead (not pictured). I think it might be a bit too north to have the sun rise over the buildings, but can still catch some decent cloud color – expect to see it in the coming months…

Don’t know why I even went to work today. Seems like I just got allergies for the first time yesterday and it was even worse today. So after not sleeping that much I went to work and was pretty comatose throughout the day. One good thing – found out there is medicine that can help me out – Clariton D. Of course, me being cheap, I bought the generic version, but we’ll see how it works. So, as my brain didn’t work all day, of course it wouldn’t work for photography either – thus, this shot. Hope the meds can restore some creativity too…

I got tired of riding alone. Sure, I won’t be doing any centuries with my wife, but good to get her out and now that she has a new bike as of yesterday and baby has a new child seat attached on back, we will be riding in style (on Specialized) together, as a family.

072/365 soccerseasonstarted

Well, after opening day got rained out (we borrow the pro team’s field so they don’t want us to rip them up) our season started today. This isn’t my team, it is the team that played on our field before us, but I figured it was worth it to get a soccer shot today. Did some artistic ones but ended up with this action shot, cause this is what soccer is about. Got hurt and sun burned – and for me, that is what soccer is about. And we lost 😦

I always wanted to do an up close eye shot. But since everyone seems to have done it, I decided to mix it up a bit. Who has seen an up close Ni Hao Kai-Lan eye before? Well, now you have.

Today was Nyla’s 17 month birthday. Mommy made her a cake and as usual, she was only interested in the strawberries. I guess that is good – she doesn’t eat the junk food, just the fruit.
