Himself: Swam, went to an estate sale, picked up cleaning, he called to say thank you for the “We will let you know in three to four weeks”, and after I got off work he took the rest of the weekend off. Malls, kiosk to fix M’s watch, and Fashion Valley to “The Last Airbender,” salad for dinner, games bed.
Herself: Ditto G’s day and throw in worked at store, and bored with movie. I thought it was good for kids, and G thinks it was planned to show off the 3D process. Not worth seeing or rent it later.
Gratitude: A day with G where we let go we even looked in the new Microsoft store where we windowshopped a great laptop. G had a ball.
You know I’ve failed when you hear the cry, “Oh, No, I forgot my camera!”
Often I go around the block a second time to get a shot. After 9/11, a crew member on the Star of India brought in a garrison sized flag to fly off her stern. That was drama for you, and I drove home to get my camera just for that shot. I love the image of the giant flag flying off the side of the dry dock at the sub base, but it is very grainy no matter how I fool with it. I’ve never been able to duplicate this shot with a better camera. Other times, I will find one flag flying in the middle of nowhere, or in contrast I’ll find hundreds visible all at once up on Fort Rosecrans.
Usually I Photoshop the picture. I confess. Perhaps today’s picture was better with the flag flying out of a little clump of trees. I didn’t think that. Some images I just sharpen up for this medium. Other shots I just crop or increase the contrast. I’m not the most dramatic photographer in the world either.
It’s a three day weekend, so I thought I’d show three days of flags. Then again, I think the Geezers flag shot of the day a better photograph. What can I say.
