I’m totally cheating and posting an old photo for today’s Photography 101 theme, Water. For those of you who are my personal Facebook friends, you’ve seen it as my cover photo many times over the past five months. This is an un-edited shot from my iPhone (!) of a beach … Continue reading
Day 2 of the Photography 101 challenge, and today’s theme is “Street”. I haven’t spent any time experimenting with time-lapse / nighttime photography and it’s definitely something that I would like to play with more. Sadly, I only had about 10 minutes to get this picture given my schedule today, and taking it in the evening in D.C. meant I was almost run over about 10 times, so it was certainly not the best shooting environment. One of these days I’ll plan better to get some proper late night shots … looking at this (completely untouched) photo I would like to have a longer shutter speed so you can get a better feel for the movements of the cars. Of course, late night there may not be many cars, but what are you going to do.
So, I present, Street. Maryland Avenue NE, Washington, D.C., looking southwest towards the Capitol.
Maryland Ave. NE, Washington, D.C.
p.s. I took this photo from right outside my apartment building, so technically it could apply to Home too.
This gallery contains 3 photos.
So I decided to take a chance and sign up for WordPress’s “Photo 101” challenge — basically, to post a picture a day that aligns to a theme that is assigned daily. Hopefully it gets me back to writing a bit more and … Continue reading
Well my friends, here we are, one month into yet another new year. How can it possibly be 2015??? I’m totally in denial, because this year is a big one for me – it’s my 4oth year, folks. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN?????!!!!!! (throws self into bed face down, sobbing uncontrollably into the … Continue reading
After long and thoughtful consideration, I’ve reached the following conclusion. While part of me wants to say it was difficult and painful, the reality was it was a pretty obvious and easy decision to make.
It’s time to cancel my subscription to Us … Continue reading
Now that the Britney Spears song is stuck in your head (you’re welcome), I’m once again amazed and slightly embarrassed over the length of time since my last post. It’s not as thought nothing is going on in my life, or that I don’t have a million things to say or … Continue reading
Well folks, here it is — my first post as an officially divorced woman. Finally, some long-awaited closure to one of my many life dramas.
Closure is a strange thing. First and foremost, it’s a wonderful relief. Finally, the ability to put something horrible behind me and to truly embrace … Continue reading
Ok, admittedly, under normal circumstances if I felt the way I do today (physically speaking, not mentally/emotionally) I would probably say that I felt “meh”. OK … not bad but not great. Maybe a little off. No biggie.
But based on how I’ve been the past few days I am … Continue reading
Well, nothing like boldly and publicly announcing my return to the blogosphere and the regular over-sharing that you’ve come to know and love, then promptly dropping off the face of the earth (again). So what the fuck is going on with me, … Continue reading
While I refuse to do “resolutions” for the new year (or for anything, really), that doesn’t mean that I won’t use the opportunity of a new year to reflect and to think of things I’d like to improve and/or do differently. Not the “never again eat another carbohydrate” sort of … Continue reading
