I revisited the idea of frozen bubbles today.  God knows I have more than enough chances this winter to go outside and freeze them at dawn. There I was, 6:30am, right before I left for work, lying in the snow in the middle of my yard shooting bubbles no bigger than a half-dollar.  The larger ones kept popping once they hit the snow. I had about 20 tiny frozen orbs scattered in this area, and I am sure neighbors once again question their choices, just waiting for the light to hit them the way I wanted. Not bad, still wish I could get the larger ones to last, I could show more detail, but I am happy with the results. Here is the first set from last December. This will be attempted again, but I am ready to call it for this season. We don’t need to keep it cold on my account.

Tonight we had homemade mac & cheese tonight, don’t tell my wife. I hated it. Not just because I am not fan of cheese, not because it was not crunchy, more because it was it was ugly. It did not make a visually pleasing subject to photograph. I needed a photo for the day, I was relying on dinner to be my shot. It failed, I did not like the food, I did not like the photo. What I did like was last nights dinner, because it was good, tasted great, smelled awesome, it was colorful and made an interesting photo. So, I made it the photo for tonight and dumped the bad one below.

I teach a photography class on Wednesday nights – well Wednesday nights that it does not snow. Tonight we covered long exposures where I stood in front of 6 camera for 20 second exposures spinning light sticks. Then we worked on panning, chasing my son’s toy truck down a counter. Here is a shot from the practice session we had at my house before class.

1949 to 2013 but still cousins. I find myself using the GoPro more than I thought I would, both for photos and video. I can’t have too many cameras.

We have been going through old photos, the ones printed and in albums, not on the computer… the kids were confused, why would we waste so much paper?
