I think I would post more often if I carried my camera around and snapped pictures throughout the day.
My posts seem to come about when I'm home for the day and an idea pops into my head. In my mind are perfectly composed photos. Out comes the camera. Snap.. snap.. snap.
With high expectations I upload the photos only to go yuck.. delete..delete..delete. Rarely do they look anything like what I had in mind.
Case in point (the above photo).
Yep, there's a glare on them there windows and the weight of the freshly filled feeder is making the shepherd's hook lean to the left. Oh well, big deal. I've got bigger fish to fry.
I bought this flatbread at Aldi's the other day.
I used it to make a wrap and wasn't totally thrilled with the texture.
Today I decided to try a different approach.
Sharp cheddar and some sliced chicken leftover from dinner.
Warmed in the frying pan until cheese melted and the flatbread was crisp.
At that point I added sliced tomatoes, avocado and lettuce.
A little fresh pineapple on the side and it was a healthy and tasty lunch. The flatbread tasted so much better being a bit crispy.
That pineapple was only 99 cents at Aldi and boy is it ever sweet.
Do you ever shop at Aldi? We've had one nearby for years but I've only been there twice. Recently I was reading a blog talking about all of the good deals she finds there so I decided to check it out. There did seem to be a lot of good prices. I mostly bought produce.
Normally when I'm home for the day, I fill up a water bottle and sip it throughout the day.
Today I felt like kicking it up a notch at lunchtime.
I bought these glasses several years ago at an antique store.
For the most part they sit behind my glass cupboard doors looking pretty.
I like the way the sunlight reflects off of the blue glass.
Not only that, but I like the way this glass fits in my hand.
The men in my family seem to think a glass is a glass.
Recently while at my son's house his girlfriend requested a glass of wine. He brought it to her in an Oscar the Grouch mug. I had to laugh when she quietly inquired as to whether there was a wine glass. I guess it's more of a girl thing.
Okay, does anybody remember what this post is about??
perfect photography... or the lack of it!
slightly less blurry birds behind winter weary windows..
I once visited a blog where the bird photos were clear and beautiful.
She even explained her tricks for obtaining such lovely shots. I know it involved a tripod set up near the window. I have one of those (somewhere). I think I read this post a few years ago and still haven't bothered to find my tripod.
I think the truth of the matter is that it would take a lot of time and effort to achieve perfection in my photographs. More time and effort than I seem to want to devote to it.
For now I'm glad to know there are so many others who share their perfectly gorgeous photography.
And now the vacuum is calling my name so I'm off to work on perfect vacuum lines in the carpet.
Hope you all are staying warm.
It's almost the weekend. Anything fun planned?
