I seem to be good for 5 pics a week so far. I’d like to say that this current week will be better, but I already missed a pic yesterday. Argh. Moving on.
For my birthday, my sister gave me a “Dashboard Monk” that promises “Enlightenment on a Spring”. I decided that, even though I drive the length of I-696 3+ times per week, my Dashboard Monk would be better suited atop my monitor at work. As I was taping him to the monitor, I realized he’s sitting on top of a fortune cookie fortune saying “Patience is the key to joy.” I guess this could be a statement about my job and getting through the day. (note: iPhone camera photo).
Tuesday came and went without a picture, but my folks were in Ypsilanti for a few days and on Wednesday we met them in Hamtramck for dinner at our favorite Polish restaurant. Its so hard to get them to pose for a picture when they’re not making funny faces, so I was pretty happy that I got this great shot of them.
(note: Looking back on the workshop I took, I finally understand what the white balance adjustment can do. Since I didn’t think to adjust it before I took this picture, I was able to adjust it in software afterward to remove some of the orange tones from the bad lighting in the restaurant.)
I missed Thursday’s photo, but the sun came out on Friday and so did I.
We finally got out for a ride on Sunday. Unfortunately, we had to stick to the pavement because things around here are just plain ugly and gross. It was a good ride with lots of sunshine, but still a bummer to be stuck on pavement. I didn’t realize until Sunday just how sad I am that I missed winter this year due to injury/recovery. Hopefully next year will be good snow and injury free!
