Wow, has it really been nearly a week since I blogged last? I am just NON STOP busy lately and when Jess and I finally took a day to ourselves on Sunday, nothing but vegging on the sofa, it was such a welcome relief. Nothing really too exciting the past week other than celebrating my mom's retirement. We had a wonderful party at our favorite Mexican restaurant and what was amazing was that 4 of the 5 bosses she had during her nearly 30 year career in the school district showed up to honor her. I had to mark the occasion with a picture.
Remember in my last post when I did a self portrait?
Well, I liked the concept so much that I did close portraits of the other three members of the family as well.
What a lovely family if I may say so myself. In fact, Jessica's turned into a quick, impromptu photo shoot. if you want to see the full set (less than 10) click here!
Saturday was also a close up shot, but not of the human variety. It was after 11PM, poker had ended, and I still didn't have a picture of the day. I went into my office to look for something simple and had no clue. But then I saw the perfect thing - since I had no clue, the question mark on my printer would be perfect!
Today was a pretty spontaneous picture as well, but one that required perfect timing to spot. While walking to the sofa, I peeked out the side window going into my backyard and saw beautiful beams of light hitting the leaves in just the right way. I quickly set up the camera before the light moved and snapped this leaf peaking out and illuminated in the right spot.
