Seeing life through rose colored glasses

Leave a comment

A wonderful day using one of my Christmas gifts (tickets to the MD game) with my Son. I’ve now seen each of my children this week. That is a real treat with the stages of life we are in. Everyone is working, having their own families and homes to take care of. So each few hours I can steal away with them is wonderful.

I was going to do some shooting at the game today but decided my cameras didn’t need the exposure to the elements of the Maryland weather today. Shuttle busses are cool though. parking at the other end of campus in the stadium garage and getting to Xfinity Center is a snap. Still got pretty wet in the few minutes we were outside.

Last night, playing around in the basement studio again because it was cold outside. Also had some other product shots to try so in between that I had a few more old roses to use up. Which gave me the title to the post today. Also it was Gold Rush at the Stadium, so there was much gold and black today.

I’m tempted to go out and shoot some fog this evening. But as I said yesterday or the day before, I’ve got to start getting proper rest. So if it’s there when I wake before sunrise, I’ll go out then. Well, I’ll do a few more indoor shots before crashing. Time is so precious on the days off the job that pays the bills.

Random Thoughts of the Day

A somber anniversary is approaching this coming week.

It’s never too late in the day to pick up the camera. But it’s probably too late to download and edit.

NASCAR has nothing on driving in the Baltimore/DC region.

Each day that life is great, is like getting extra toppings on your sundae.

I don’t know why I don’t have the excitement about the Winter Olympics yet. Guess I should go read and find some interesting events to watch.

I’m getting better at making each day a more positive experience. Now if I could just avoid those working in the opposite direction.
