3-27-12 Well, It Seemed A Good Idea At The Time

Have you ever thought: “Wow, this seems like a really great thing to do. Let’s do it!” and then discovered half way through that you have bitten off more than you can easily chew and things start to feel really dicey?

That is what I did today. 10 hours later, I made it through and it only cost two incredibly sore calves, a bruised kneecap, a deep look into my internal mirror, and a realization of where I am in my life.

I am very glad I did it.

I seriously doubt that I will ever do it again.

8-19-11 Accidental Cootchie Challenge

In honor of our massive Thunder and Lightning storm last night I take you back to (the golden days?) of 1979

Yesterday one of my blogging friends, The Accidental Cootchie Mama, said that she was leaving her usual haunts in South Carolina and headed to Beacon, NY for a visit and would be taking pictures of the Hudson but would be afraid to post them (which I take as a compliment) …especially because she would be using her “iThingy” – she loves to play the tech illiterate which she most definitely is not -.

I like a challenge so I decide to use my iPhone to shoot yesterday…and I decided I would try to get that shot that is in my head but I can’t get in the camera…what do you think?

Then to be fair, I figured more of a vista shot…

and finally a kind of contrast and compare shot with my Nikon …
