Potpourri

I don't have much to post right now, so here are some bad shots of New Year's fireworks & the eclipse last month. I didn't have time to get out my tripod & I'm still figuring the new camera out. Unfortunately it's been cold &/or rainy here since I rec'd it, so I haven't been able to use it much yet.





Jan. 6th is Syd Barrett's birthday. He would have been 64. RIP, Syd!

In art news, I recently finished a logo for a blogger/writer/friend. I'll provide a link once I have it. This weekend I'll be setting up my "Artist of the Month" display at the Covington branch of the St. Tammany Parish Library. Pop over for a gander if you're in the area.

I don't know why, but I really like the idea of watching fireworks through the trees like that.

Yes, I am weird.

I'll want to see your Covington display. Hope your day is great.

You did better than me, I went to sleep, LOL. It always seems a shame that when you get a new lens or camera, the weather ALWAYS tkes turn for the worst :)

Actually, I really liked the photo of the fireworks through the trees. Very cool.

Hope you have a great 2011!

Your eclipse photo was better than mine. Our clouds were so thick, I couldn't even locate the moon. (Correcting my typo.)

you got a part of the eclips. :) At my place it was all cloudy. :(

The fireworks through the trees is a cool shot. I clicked on that Syd Barrett link since I'm a big Pink
Floyd fan and was listening the music, groovin' to it while checking out interviews and stuff. Have a nice time doing your display at the library. I live too far for a gander, I'm afraid. :) Take care.

Travis C.; You're not weird--we like it, too! Once we went to a park in the middle of a major suburb & got to watch hundreds of fireworks all around us. That was cool, too.

Charles; Thanks for helping me set up at Covington, hon. Everyday with you is great. :)

Chrissy; I stayed up far too late just to get that eclipse shot, actually. I had to go to work in the morning--it was a rough day. As for the camera & the weather, now that it's nicer out, I don't really feel like going anywhere. Go figure. <:\

Janene; Thanks & back atcha. ;)

Marvin; Sorry you got clouded out. One of these days I really need to preplan & get the tripod out & do it right. Sometimes I'm just too dang lazy. <:\

NatureFootstep; Sorry you missed it, hon. :( *hug*

Kelly; Yeah, I kind of lucked out with that one. If I'd've had my tripod, that could've turned out really cool. Ah well. I'm a HUGE Floyd fan, myself. Glad you enjoyed. ;)

The fireworks shots are not too bad. It's hard to catch them. I also like the eclipse. Bet you are having fun with your new toy! :)

Lana Gramlich said...

Halcyon; Thanks. Not much fun with the new toy yet, I'm afraid. It's been to cold & wet to get out much at all, I'm afraid.
