On this day I only had my iPhone (now THAT was frustrating) but luckily I was still able to capture part of this amazing sunset I showed you yesterday. I actually see an eagles head and wings.
So it shouldn't surprise me when I was sitting on the couch and spotted THIS!! I instantly jumped up and grabbed my Nikon to capture the phoenix rising. Okay, I'm weird ... most photographers are!! We go down the road saying "that's a good one ... oh oh that's a good one ... look at THAT ... PULL OVER!!" Many a time I have slammed on the brakes and pulled to the side of the road.
Do you know what this IS? Really not the greatest of images considering the background, but I was in a hurry to capture the steam coming off the hardboiled eggs I just peeled. You can see on this one I interrupted the air flow just enough to make it swirl.
This happens every time you boil eggs or water for that matter, but you probably never noticed. It helps that the sun is streaming through the window, making it more visible.
See anything here? Patty says it's a human face with an arm reaching out. This could be the curse part ... when I look at this image on my bigger computer screen, I see a perfect skull. You never know what you are going to capture. It's like seeing kitties in the clouds!!
SO ... now that I've thrilled you with my weird way of seeing things, I'll get back to business. Today I pick up my new embroidery/sewing machine. Unfortunately, I had an UH OH moment last night when I actually opened one of the design packages.
Everything is on CD's. You can either put it in your computer and hook that up to the machine with a USB connection, or copy them to a thumb drive and do the same. There's one rather large problem. My MacBook Pro is built for photography. In order to keep it light enough, they took the CD player OUT. I did purchase an external one, but I never use it, so it's at home in my desk.
In a mild panic, I tried to use Dan's Windows computer, to no avail. It's been too long and I'm not up on the latest version. Late last night I called Apple in desperation. No way am I getting my machine and not be able to use it. Happily, they had one in the store sort of on the way, so I'll pick it up today and be able to use my machine after all. That TWO of everything rule keeps raising it's head.
I've picked out some designs to start with, so also on the way, I'll stop in at a quilt store and get a few pieces of fabric to go with the shirt and towel I bought at Patty's little Thrift Shop here in Vail. I'm chomping at the bit ... I can't wait to get started!!
