Heart wood

This tree in our back yard would like to wish you a happy Valentine's Day.

Tree with a branch scar in the shape of a heart

We hope your weather is better than the ice storm we're currently experiencing. Good thing we didn't have plans to go out for dinner tonight.

You have the oddest cameras.

Ours is cold and as I just wrote, I'm getting cranky from it. I want nothing more than three months in Australia.

Actually, this was shot with my all-too-common not-odd-at-all Digital Rebel. The blurring and such is from the Lensbaby I used for the lens. :-)

I want a lensbaby. Such a fun little thing. Photography should be fun.

Yes, photography should be fun. That's why I started using the toy cameras. When I first bought the Digital Rebel, I was having a blast, seeing potential photos everywhere. In the past year or so, not so much. I needed to do something to shake myself up. The toy cameras did that. I'm having fun with photography again. And it started with a camera I found at a thrift store for a dollar. Go figure.

Lensbabies are neat. I covet one of their new 3G lenses that you can adjust more carefully and such. But I think I need to play out this return to film for now.

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio
