This is a big step outside of the box for me.  I don't DO "studio" or even indoors as a general rule.  Nature and natural lighting, that's where my heart is at.  But I do experiment occasionally and this is one such shot.  I might be tempted to try a few more but I'm having computer issues that I'm going to have to address here immediately, so I may not get back to post till later in the week.

In other news my favorite karaoke deejays got a new gig last week.  So Friday I had to go check it out.  Stuck with songs that were easy on my vocal chords.  Little redneck joint with BIG heart.  The owner is the sweetest little lady and says HEY! to absolutely everyone that walks through that door.  A big loud WHOMPING hey! that will startle the bejeebers out of you if you're not expecting it.

I saw THE. BEST. POOL. PLAYER. EVAH.  I don't say that lightly.  Nobody could beat this guy, he was awesome.  I told him so, too and he made a date with my hat for the next night.  I went back last night too, just like I said I would, but my hat got stood up.  No big surprise there, I swear these South Carolina fellas just have no taste.  Still had a good time, though it was a much quieter night than Friday.  Shot pool myself and found I'm really rusty, but it was fun all the same.

And now I'm going to have to wrestle with my computer.  See you sooner or later depending on who wins.


  1. I hope you win the wrestling match with the computer. ;)

  2. Great picture (although I wouldn’t expect anything less). Good luck with the computer challenge, hope you win! :)
    The enigmatic, masked blogger strikes again

  3. sounds like a fun day planned.. Love the picture

  4. Hope your hat has held onto its moxy and doesn't take any of that nonsense personally.

    enjoying your blog :)

  5. I like it! I like stepping outside of my box sometimes too. :)

  6. Thanks everyone.

    Still not done with the computer ... I need to reformat but have a few more things I want to back up but have run out of discs. It is running a little better but I'm not fooled.

  7. I'm glad you pushed the envelope, because this photo is stupendous. It just draws you in and unveils something new every time you look at it.

    Hope you lick the computer issues soon. Gawd, I know how that can be!

    If I can put my geek hat on for a sec, it sounds like you're offloading data to make more room on the drive. If at all possible, an external hard drive might be easier to manage than burning DVDs. They're fairly inexpensive (a one-terabyte - that's a thousand gigs - drive is typically under $100) and they'll save a lot of time.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed that everything works out for ya!

  8. Oops, almost forgot: I've posted the new theme. It's "parallel". Got anything in mind?
