I tried putting the flash under the flowers to see what kind of effect I could get. I am not the best at flash photography but I am trying.

The shorts are a good way to experience some good cinema without spending all day in a theater...
... after all we have an Irish festival to go to this afternoon.
I have to say our favorite this year was L’Incroyable Voyage de Margaux. It shows a family dealing with the death of a pet, very good take on the concept.

I think everything has its place, even bevel and emboss... well except maybe the Papyrus font, but is it used as a crutch? It is like Black and White, it makes everything more artsy. But I have to admit I do like it sometimes.

The title is from the fact I always forget to put my keys in the "key box" we have hanging by the door and I end up running late to work because I can't find my keys.
The key chain is from a trip to Oregon, same one yesterdays vineyard photos are from. While walking around Portland we came across the Deschutes brewery in Portland and if course stopped in for a pint.
I think I heard somewhere that Oregon has the most breweries than any other state.

I took these pictures almost a year ago on a trip to Oregon. We were staying at a B&B in the Willamette Valley and this was the view from our room. Initially I didn't care for the images very much in color or black & white. The image with the fog burning off in the valley just comes up on my screen and I see something in it I hadn't seen before. I think I can do something with that. Then while browsing for that image I see this image with rows and rows of grape vines and the sticks they are tied to. I think this could work as a more abstract contrasty Ansel Adams inspired image. So after trying to get the blacks and whites as close as I could get them the way I saw them in my head I cropped it down to take the extra junk out of frame. And then I re-cropped to get some interested in the foreground (composition, composition... I know I took a class or two on that at some point).
I hope I didn't see something in these images that wasn't there...
