More photography, anyone?

So, Adam is looking at a new format for my blog, hopefully to help with the formatting of the text around photos that I put in my posts.  Well, looking back at my posts, there really aren't many photos - at all.  So, I'm going to be better about posting photos.  I'm not sure how each of you prefer to view my blog, but I can tell you that it seems to be best viewed in Google Reader....of course Google would have one of the best options...I love Google!

So, until I realized just how sparsely photoed my blog is (is "photoed" really a word?  My computer's dictionary says it is), I was going to title this post "Summertime" and tell you how much I love the summer because of this beautiful fruit:


Yum!  Its so good!  I ran last night, which brings me to the thing that I hate most about Memphis - the absolutely stifling heat!  Its suffocating sometimes - I opened the door for a minute while I grabbed the trash to take out and was sweating before I left the doorway!  It was NOT a pleasant run!  However, my re-hydration/dinner of ice cold watermelon was lovely!

If I remember correctly, I also mentioned my 1st attempt at photographing fireworks in my last blogpost.  So, here it is, for your viewing pleasure.

The bridge in the photo is I-40 and we're on the little bridge going over to Mud Island.  Adam and I went out the night before to scout out a prime photo spot and it was perfect!  However, when we actually got out there on the 4th, there was a crazy wind blowing straight at us!  If you look at the light trail from the fireworks, you'll notice that they're zigzags!  It isn't noticeable much otherwise, and the ziggy lines of the light trails are fun and unique. Adam and I also played around with some light painting as well and came out with a nice ghostly image!

So, that's all for now!  Have a good night!
