Stuff and Things

I keep meaning to write a new entry, then I remember I never have anything to write about.  So, this time I'm going to post some pictures!

Okay, so something I've thought about possibly pursuing is real estate photography.  Most of the pictures of the houses for sale in town are terrible, so I thought it'd be a good thing for me to learn and maybe one of these days I can try to make some money off it.  I took some photos of our house the other day as practice and I think I'm happy with them.  Of course as far as photos go, they're not too exciting, but I'm still posting them!

Our terrible kitchen.
The living room - please excuse the mess.
The living room pt. II - again excuse the mess.

So in the pictures of the living room you can see the lights are on, right?  Well, I found a video that shows how to take two photos, one exposed for the natural light and one exposed for the lamp, and merge them to show both forms of lighting.  I like it!  The bad thing about these photos is that since I have to do long exposures all of the dust and dirt in my camera shows up, so I have to edit that out.

That is just Anna being cute.
And our backyard.

I'm really wanting to take pictures of big fireworks this year.  I don't think I'll be seeing any huge displays, though, so that's a bit of a bummer.  I also want to go to some waterfalls for photos.  We are lacking waterfalls in the area, though.  Maybe I'll just have to take a trip to Rochester Falls very soon. 

Anyway, it's Sunday.  Ever since we've moved into this house last year we always got a paper on Sunday.  Now we've never paid for the Sunday papers, they've just always shown up.  Well apparently our subscription is up.  No paper today, bummer.  I like to see if I know anyone that's getting married, divorced, or has gotten a ticket.  I guess it'll just have to be a mystery today.
