If you want to challange yourself (or her), try to get running/hiking/enter_whatever_activity_or_sports_here shoes that do NOT come in funky colors
Yes, that helps. What David described, we do it the same way: shoes are always taken off when entering the house. We had new wood floors installed when buying and renovating the old house about a year and a half ago, but then, they're already well used. Small children... I could as well wear shoesAfter refinishing all the wood floors, because of wear from dirt tracked in on shoes, we have a renewed desired to make sure we wear slippers in the house...
Flowers are important to have around, in a home. Good wife
I'm definitely seeing the cohesiveness of your theme, Paul. Another nice image!
Thanks Andy and David!Well done on the flower arrangement Paul. No matter who went to the effort of obtaining them, a bunch of flowers such as those will always bring joy to the household. Likewise your picture.
No, hasn’t opened. I had to position and move some of the flowers as a few are starting to go. Pulled a petal off the yellow flower.Flowers are important to have around, in a home. Good wife
They must only just have started dying, there's only hints of that, so far. Still made a good subject. Has the one still closed in the picture opened, or not anymore?
Thanks for the kind words.Hi Paul. Finally getting caught up with you. Sorry for the delay.
The Titanic shot really makes me happy. I love the industrial look of things when they are photographed in a way that makes them art. The color and your shot here do that. DOF chosen beautifully.
The workshop shot, as Chris says, is a masterpiece. Perfectly framed, and a beautiful shot all around. Again, DOF is perfect.
Charlie looks a bit woeful .... like how come he isn't opening that door and letting me out like he usually does? Cute shot, though.
The wife's running shoes on the wooden rack illustrate perfectly why plastic racks should be banned.
Flowers are the only shot I would take a bit of issue with .... I'd like a bit more DOF so that more of the bouquet is in focus. Pretty colors, though.
Keep up the great work!
I can just imagine the difficulty as you describe it. So extra congratulations on getting such an impressively sharp high speed shot. And the color IS wonderful.Day 11: Cars
Was at a club driving school on Friday, where there was lots of opportunity for shooting bold colors (will put a bunch in the bucket), especially the instructor cars, as some are club racers and have colorful and decorated cars (others are everyday production models).
I had another shot that was very colorful, but I opted for this one, as it was my first attempt in about a year to shoot really high speed shots at close distance. Most of the time, I'm shooting in the 85-200mm range, from a good distance from the cars (at flagging stations). In this case, however, I stopped on the access road where it came close to the track, climbed through a large rocky swale, and was right next to the guard rail. Extra challenging because I couldn't foot zoom, and there wasn't much visibility up track (a curve), so I didn't have much time to track these cars flying by.
