I seem to be using the paper cutter at work a lot more lately. I guess that happens to kindergarten teachers occasionally.

ruby slippers

One of my favorite parts of the photo-a-day project is being forced to come up with a shot I like every day. It was getting close to sleepy time and I hadn't taken any shots I really liked. So I meandered around my house taking random, lame shots of stuff, waiting for something to catch my eye. But nothing did. Toothpaste, lame. Faucet, lame. Picture frames, lame. Finally, after having giving up mentally, I looked down and saw my wife's awesome red shoes. After playing around with the depth of field and lighting, I eventually came up with this. Had I not forced myself to shoot something better, this shot never would have been.

I've never really seen lime green flowers before. I wonder what these are called (besides green flowery flowers).

I totally stole this idea from Mike's photo-a-day. It's a cool shot, and I wanted one, too.

Ever since reading Photo Idea Index, I've been wanting to take a shot of a fork.

Have I mentioned I love my new lens? I do.

I know that eyes need to be in focus in a photo. With this lens, though, they really need to be in focus. And, it's really hard to get eyes in focus with an aperture of 1.4. Lots of my people pictures are already trash cuz I barely missed focus on the eyes. I'm glad I shoot digitally--me and my wallet would be sad otherwise.
