Da Pixels

I've been getting a lot of feedback on the wine glass series I've been posting on my Daily Pixels blog (as well as on my Flickr), and I want to thank everyone for their comments!

I had been feeling like I was in a rut for quite a while, and this exercise has really helped motivate me. It's been a ton of fun, and I can't wait to finish out the month and start March with a new Object of the Month.

I've had several people ask about lenses, lighting, etc., so I'm going to start posting some of that along with the photos. (If I remember.)

I may post a poll at the end of the month to find out what everyone's favorite was, just for my own curiosity. I know some people don't like to post comments on the blog, but aren't afraid to click a button and vote, Lol.

I'm playing catch-up posting the pictures I took while my sister was here. I was short on creativity (and time) during that week, but did the best I could.

To make up for it, I have an awesome shot that I took today. It's my new favorite and I cannot wait to post it. Unfortunately, the Blonde One is doing his homework on the computer with my photo stuff on it, so I'll probably have to wait until late tonight or tomorrow morning. Dang homework!!

Check back later!

Family Weirdness

So, I was upstairs the other night putting away laundry when I heard the beginnings of an argument downstairs.

I couldn't quite make out much of what was being said, just that the Diva had come home from work and she and the Wildcard were not happy with each other. Being the June Cleaver that I am, I finished putting away the laundry, checked my e-mail, and scrubbed the shower before heading downstairs.

Okay, that was an exaggeration. Let's just say that I was in no hurry to see what the ordeal was.

I hadn't even made it all the way down the stairs when the Diva trapped me.

Diva: "Mom! He ate all the broccoli!!!"

The Wildcard immediately popped his head around the corner: "I did NOT!!! I saved some for her!"

Diva: "Yeah, THREE pieces!! Three little pieces!"

Wildcard: "Well, next time you need to come home earlier!"

Diva: "Mommmmm!!!"

Who argues over broccoli?

Seriously, who argues ever broccoli?

So, I got off to a late start on the PAD project, thanks to an afternoon in the ER with Destructo. He's recovering, and will hopefully be bouncing off the walls before I am ready for it!

My PAD object is a wine glass. I'll be posting a new picture every day, unless life gets in the way!

You can check it out here.
