Last Alpine Loop of the Year

Today we took the last Alpine Loop trip of the year. The canyon closes tomorrow for winter. While we were up there we decided to take some family shots. I think they turned out pretty well.

Thursday Meeting : Spikemen

So, I have an attention span problem. I can't sit in meetings or watch movies without DOING something. Every Thursday we have a staff meeting at work, and I have a tendency to doodle. These little doodles will probably be worth millions someday, so I am letting you get in on the ground floor of seeing them first!

Today, I drew the spike men. A couple things you should know. 1) Yes, they have a leader, it's pretty obvious who it is, and 2) if it looks like it was drawn a paper towel with a smudge on it, it was, and the brownie was delicious!

Tilt Shift

Tilt shift photography uses a special lens that encompasses two different types of movements: rotation of the lens plane relative to the image plane, called tilt, and movement of the lens parallel to the image plane, called shift. The lenses start at about $1200 like this Canon TS-E 45mm or the Canon TS-E 17mm for $2200. Normally, this is used for taking pictures of tall buildings without the parallel lines converging, but you can also use them to make pretend miniature model scenes. You can "fake" this effect with a series of actions in Photoshop, which is what I did; since I am not Mr. Moneybags. It turned out pretty well, especially for a first attempt. What do you think?

Weenie Roast

Tonight we went up AF Canyon for a Weenie Roast... We didn't actually start until about 7:15, so it was starting to get dark. But the kids had a lot of fun with only grabbing the wrong end of the roasting wire a couple of times a piece. Luckily, there was a stream nearby to dunk their hands in. They got good and sticky with strawberry smores too. Darrin, Kelly, Mia and Tim came too, and the kids had a good time playing with them too.
