118/365 - RED (sort of)

And Bella's taken the ball and it looks like she's gonna take it all the way to the end of the field and no one will try to stop her...

I usually am not a fan of little dogs, but this gal... just gets into my heart.

116/365 - GHOST!

My first attempt at making a 'ghost' photo, which I read about on a photographer site.

cheating whore picture - WATER

Because that's what my knees turn into when I see pictures like this. :)

(See! Water in the background, so there. Well, I think it's water. It could be water. It might be.)

A happy accident - a movement photo - since this girl is a dancer and wouldn't. stop. moving. in her scene today.
Though I think this one below is my favorite, just for the weirdness of the parts that are clear combined with the blurred parts because she was moving... if that makes sense:

(she was doing a scene from "Wicked," hence the greenish face!)

I'm learning to work with Aperture, and tried to take a photo with lots of colors and only desaturate a few.
But... I'm not doings something right, and I'm too tired to keep working on it now.It's late.  I want to go to bed.

Playing with focus with my repaired lens (2 weeks after they repaired my camera!) before leaving the:

They're very nice, but I don't want to come here again... for a long time.

Took my camera to class to shoot as usual... lens wouldn't focus.  It would focus on things close, but not far (ie., the actors on the stage).
First time this has happened since I took the body of the camera in to get fixed.  They did find a problem, but NOW ... it's the lens.

So I got nuthin' out of spite and nasty moods over the weekend, and this was the last picture taken with the lens.  Seems it really likes *grass more than people.  So do I sometimes.

*it wouldn't focus or take a photo when pointing level/straight out at something, but to the ground, not a problem.

The better part of my day was spent confused and frustrated as to how best restore things on my new hard drive that my brother put in the day before.
It's called Time Machine, and it's the EASIEST THING EVER. I was dragging individual applications, etc. until I figured out: you select 'Restore from Time Machine', pick a date in the past to restore from, and voila.
Windows cannot compete with this!!

I always love watching 'estimated time:' go from 34 minutes, to 4 hours and 55 minutes, to an hour and ten minutes.

But now, I have my computer back to normal, but with LOADS of space!

Really annoying how much colour is lost from my original to what it looks like when I upload it to the internet.

The original, which is so much richer on my camera and computer, so I have to futz with it so online it will look like ... the original photo:
