…and here is one of mine.
This photo is by Thomas Hawk. He’s a guy in San Francisco who wants to shoot, process and publish 1,000,000 photos before his days are over. I’ve crossed path with him over the years in FriendFeed, Google Buzz and Flickr.
When I saw this picture the first time, I fell in love with it, and I can’t get over it! I still love it. This picture was what made me get the 50mm lens I wrote about the other day … the «nifty fifty» — was hoping I’d take great photos like this.
It’s something about the colours, glossiness and smoothness of it that so appeals to me.
Myself, I haven’t taken any pictures lately … it’s raining! It’s been raining for three, four weeks, I think, and it will go on this week too. It seems I should work on my indoor photography. Instead I’ve taken up the making of digital web graphics [in Paint Shop Pro 10]. Used to do that a lot, a few years ago while we were blogging in Y360.
Mona, an online buddy and fellow Swede, and I were talking about it … how much fun it used to be and why we lost it. So … slowly but surely we started again. I’ve set up, or rather ‘resuscitated’ a «sister blog» for it, to keep it apart from here. It’s just for my own pleasure … to see what I can accomplish — it’s not like I’m going to use them for anything.
Today, I had a real urge to sink my teeth into a real good steak. Walked down to the grocery store in the fog and drizzle. Picked up a few other items at the same time and found a piece of meat … its size looked suitable for me … sirloin tip, it said. It looked good so I took it. I came home and fried it … the way I always do, and I tell you!!! This was the worst piece of meat I’ve ever had. Ever!!! I couldn’t eat it. Had I had some raccoon around I would have given it to him. It was next to impossible to cut through it, let alone chew it and there’s nothing wrong with my teeth. What a let-down! Isn’t sirloin tip supposed to be really good meat?!
