Rap isn’t my favorite genre, but @thisisheadlines dropped a CD on me today downtown. This is good shit, with some positive and legit rhymes.
In an age of smartphones and selfie sticks, I’m doing my best to raise a budding young photographer.
One brisk morning last November, Connor and I went out to photograph in our yard — he with his little blue camera, and me with my long-neglected ActionSampler.
I love seeing his perspective on me…
…versus my perspective on him.
I’m a little behind on my Bloom Day post this month, so without further ado, here’s what was in bloom as of four days ago:
Fitbit and Sleep Cycle both agree: I got to bed at a decent time, then laid awake for two hours before zonking out hard.
I didn’t wake up either exceptionally exhausted or refreshed, but laying awake for two hours was irritating.
Shot up five pounds this week from oral steroids. Managed to drop it by today’s #weightwatchers weigh-in, so I’m only up 0.2 from last week.
This morning’s music for heads-down coding: the eponymous album (aka the Moon Album) by @ClutchOfficial. Earbuds in. Here we go.
Even with a few substitutions that turned Chicken Parmesan Balls into Turkey Pizza Balls, this was AMAZEBALLS. @altonbrown #everydaycook
My son saw me making meatballs and asked — nay, *informed* me he would help. Dinner was late, but worth it. Thx, @altonbrown! #everydaycook
My five-year-old son’s film camera is a no-name focus-free 35mm camera that my husband got for free years ago. At first it was a toy… but, as it turns out, this little camera takes contrasty, vignetted photos that I really love. So, I’m never hesitant to load up his camera when he asks, because I know he’ll get bored with photographing at some point, and I’ll get to shoot the rest of the roll.
I took the generic blue 35mm on a photo walk downtown back in December. These were the results.
