Urrg

Urgg is pretty much all there is to say about it. I contracted some sort of tropical virus this week that's left me feverish, cranky, sore-throated and generally unpleasant. I held off as long as I could, but mid-week I finally broke down and went to the doc. As you might imagine, I haven't been reading. Or really doing anything in particular except lying in bed and whining. Today is the first day I've felt a lot better, so here I am, back to torture you all with my rambliness. Say rambliness five times fast.

So I've mentioned that Chuck and I bought a Nikon D90 camera. If you're not a camera person (as I am not a camera person) all that really means is that it's really fancy. We bought it as an investment for our business since we're expanding into photography and multimedia soon. Now we have to learn to use it to get a return on the investment.

To my great surprise, it really does take rock awesome pics. Chuck and I really don't have the first clue how to use the thing so we're taking a digital photography class on Tuesday nights. This week was our first class meeting and we delved into shutter speed, aperture, and all kinds of other stuff that meant nothing to me before class. It's really interesting so far, and it's nice to actually know how to use such a fine (expensive) piece of photographic wizardliness with some knowledge and control. Here's a brief sampling. The really good pics are on Chuck's computer, and I'm far too lazy to download them right now.



Pardon the fuzz in this pic. Action shots of Daisy are kind of tricky. As you can see Rocketboy got a face full of Daisy love.

This one is a little better. This freakin' camera is really powerful. Pretty good picture, and we didn't know what the hell we were doing when we took this one. Happy accident!

I'm off to read or design some bookmarks for my new (and soon to be announced, I promise) Etsy site. Nothin' but love, bloggy peeps!
