I know, toys 2 days in a row, but it is a special occasion, enjoy the candy! I added another Legoboy shot for fun, I had not noticed how dirty he is, it is time to clean him up.  I edited a lot of the dirty off and he still looks like… well he has been buried, drowned, lit on fire, dumped in ice cream…. might be time to let him soak in soapy water for a few weeks.

No matter what, this Red Sox season has been incredible, worst to first, Ortiz is batting .733 and they are playing as a team for the first time in years. Just pure entertainment.  The only complaints I have are the games are on too late and I really don’t need to see another Cialis commercial, I am pretty sure men that need Cialis really don’t need to see the commercial either.  Way to make watching sports with your kids awkward Fox/MLB. It is too bad the sport will be an afterthought in ten years. I read the other day that the average age of baseball fans is 53 years old and my generation will be the last to follow the sport closely. I am sure it is true, I coached it and kids are just not interested in it.  My friends and I knew stats of all the players and not just the ones on my home team. Now,kids might be able to name some players, most have no clue what .733 means. Enjoy it while it lasts, let’s hope for one (or even 2 more) great games. I would like to see more offense from both teams, let’s keep the umps out of it and I would love to see more of Boston Police Officer Steve Horgan. IF the Sox win, I think he deserves a ring and a ride on the float.
Go Sox.

Shoot Like a Pro

I took the day off to hang out with 500 or so photographers in Boston at the Scott Kelby: Shoot Like a Pro Tour.  Scott Kelby is an author, trainer,tv host, photoshop expert all around photo guru, who held a seminar today based on a few of his books.  If you are a photographer, especially starting out, I highly recommend checking out his books and websites. The first few months of the dailypic photos many of the shots were shot using techniques I learned from his The Digital Photography Book series and his Lightroom Books have helped me master my editing software. I got to meet him during a break, I am not going to lie, if I had more time and a résumé in hand I am sure I would have hit him up for a job. Marrying my career as a trainer and my skills as a photographer would be a dream. For now I will need to be excited for the upcoming adult ed classes I will be teaching in January focusing on composition  (more to come on that soon). Check out kelbytraining.com. Thanks to fellow photographer Angela for the company and taking this shot today.

Whenever the family is on the kitchen the cat sits here, and stares at us.  Close enough to the corner so she can run away if needed, a safe distance from actually being part of the family. Glaring at us like we are bothering her, like we are in her house and she is just waiting for us to leave, like the cat she is.

Threw a few leaves on light-box I used to use to look at negatives, then shot them with the macro lens. Enjoy.

This guy (or girl) has hung around our back porch for the last few days.  It is alive, though seems to be in bad shape.  I could pick it up and place it where I wanted without it trying to jump. Seems too cold and after tonight I think it might be a Popsicle in the backyard.

In other news I am still taking suggestions for the #1500th picture.  The date of the milestone is two weeks from tomorrow.  If you offer a suggestion (just comment on a post) or join the event on Facebook you can win a free print from the 1500 photo collection. One winner for every 10 entries, so far there are guaranteed 8 winners. Click here for the details on Facebook.

There have been a few Red Sox photos in the dailypic over the years.  Not all very nice. It was hard to route for the team the last few years, I think I might had represented that in a couple photos, I will add 2 of them below. But now, damn are the fun to route for, it’s time for everyone to learn their names, or at least grow a beard.  Go Sox.

Shot this at 6:30 this morning, I like photographing non-full moons, you can see the craters and damage better.
