I spent a good chunk of my weekend getting my computer set up the way I want. It might not be 100% there yet, but I'm getting close.
I even managed to carve out some photography time this weekend.
I'm so happy to be getting my "life" back to normal now. I'm sure a lot more efficient when I have a laptop – especially a speedy one. (Any computer is speedy compared to the one I was working on these last few weeks!)
Unrelated aside: I've had several requests from people wishing to purchase photos. I haven't uploaded any for awhile.
I'm in the process of working on a re-design for Twenty Four At Heart. (Actually, I'm working with a web designer – she's doing the hard part!) Part of the re-design involves streamlining the photo purchasing piece of this puzzle. I'm making some big improvements. I want things to be easier for you, and hopefully simpler for me.
If you feel like you absolutely "must" have a particular photo right now, let me know and I'll make arrangements for you. Otherwise, I'm holding off on uploads until the re-design is complete. (Having no computer for a couple weeks slowed down everything.)
My son went to his high school homecoming dance over the weekend. I was asked by a few of the kids to be "their" photographer. I almost strangled an obnoxious OC mom in the process, but I used amazing restraint and didn't.
The above photo is my son's date. All the girls had really high heels on. Ouch?!
As soon as I was done with homecoming photos, I drove straight to the beach. I arrived with just moments to spare.
Two women approached me as I was taking photos of the sunset.
"Are you going to take a photo of the sunset?" one of them asked.
"Do you think I should?" asked my Smart-Ass Self.
"It's very beautiful tonight," nodded one of the women as she eyed my camera mounted on a tripod staring straight at the sunset.
I nodded back at her.
"Sounds like a good idea," I responded. I continued clicking away then, ignoring her. She hovered at my side for quite awhile. Eventually, the two women wandered a few feet away, sat on some rocks, and watched me take photos until the sun set. Once in awhile, they'd give me helpful tips like, "Did you get THAT?!"
"Yes," I'd answer.
Yes, I did ….
