Monday we rescued my grandma from an overflow of brownies before we cleaned her twelve windows, inside and out. We also saved a few trinkets from a life in the landfill.
I brought my camera over to show it off. My grandpa wanted to hide it from me so I would conveniently 'forget' I'd brought it over. But he had no such luck. However, it started feeling frisky after being cooped up so long in its bag, so I took it out and let it capture some pretty pink flowers that inhabited the kitchen table.
Today I kidnapped my sister against her will and made her pose for pictures. I wanted to experiment with different lighting. Some of it worked, some of it didn't. Here's a sample of what I captured:
She was kicking and screaming the whole time, doesn't it show? Actually, she was game for having a lens shoved in her face, and she was glad to have some new profile pictures for her Facebook account. My whole family is on Facebook. And by whole family I mean aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, great aunts and uncles, second cousins, first cousins once removed, cousin's spouses, etc, etc. There is no escape.
But honestly, I kind of like it that way. Shhhh don't tell them that though. I try to keep my affections for them a secret. If that information got out in the world, there's no telling what might happen.
Besides harassing my sister and invading her personal bubble with the lens of my Canon Rebel, I also violated the clock, my mom's bell collection and a basket of pine cones in the living room. None of us will be the same again.
To top off my epic beginning to Spring Break, I learned that The Keeper broke his thumb. He decided that it would be a really superb idea to jam that sucker into the ground just to see what would happen when he dove to save a soccer ball from certain death in between the goal posts.
So the picture I'm going to show him when he gets back will be this one so that he smiles.
