Some New Stuff

Well, obviously I haven't mastered the best way to photograph my art work. If anyone has any suggestions....When I use a flash, the light bleeds out detail, and when I don't use a flash, I get camera shake. Of course, when I get my new lens, (someday) it will be a different story, hopefully. I have found that natural light is the best all the way around digitally, whether I'm shooting my kids swimming or still-life art work.

I'm Still Here!

I wanted to submit this scrapbook page of Sierra to let everyone know....I am still here...I'm still functioning. And I will go ahead and say it, even though it's so boring...I am really busy! It's a trend in my life. I do not deny OR regret it, though! I hereby commit to post more this week. I have some art projects I have completed, so I promise to share..... I'm having a great weekend, aren't you! The weather is perfect!! Stay tuned, I have some time these next few days. I'm off on birthday!

I'm in Phillie for the American Dietetic Association Food & Nutrition Conference and Expo! In order to keep up my registration as a dietitian, we are required to have 75 credit hours of continuing education in 5 years. Well.....I'm behind. They are due this year in May, and I only have about 36 credits going into this conference. Soooo...I need to get a lot in a hurry. Some of the students were going, so I got the bug. I said, what the heck, I'm going to submit it, and see what they say. They could only say NO, right? Well, they (the hospital) approved it! So, I'm here staying at the Hyatt on the Delaware River with a fantastic view just like this one out my 21st floor windows! I didn't bring my camera, I wish I had, but it seemed a little too bulky to keep up with. I probably need to get one of those smaller digital cameras for times such as these. I missed some good photo ops. There's beautiful architecture in some of the downtown buildings, but I was also told not to walk around downtown or in the tourist areas alone. Several dietitians told me stories of pick-pockets and muggings. The cab driver on the way over said that this city is one of the most violent!! I didn't know that. I'm enjoying myself, though, and learning a lot! I'll be back late Tuesday, back at work on Wednesday....
