I usually avoid flash photography like the plague, so this week's Photo Quest challenge to shot with flash was a real challenge.
I have been working on it for two nights. Tonight I went through about 100 shots to try to pick out some good ones. This one made the cut. The petunia bloom is about half way open. It wasn't dark yet when I took the shot; the sun was just setting, and I used a filter to keep from over exposing the flower.
I worked up a few more apples today, but didn't make any more jelly. Hubby didn't go looking for the jars. One of our sons is coming tomorrow. Maybe he will go look for them. If he has time, I want him to set my old computer up for my hubby's sister, who lives with us. She can use it to edit and print pictures, play games, etc. She just won't have internet access.
I did do a lot of paperwork on the computer today. I paid bills and balanced bank accounts and downloaded banking info to Money 2005, I'm going to have to see if the bank can send me all of the back dated info that I need from January through June. I tried several times today to order some blank check registers and deposit slips. Since I do most of our banking on the computer, I run out of registers and slips a long time before I run out of checks. Does anyone have a place that you can order those two things from? I found a couple of web sites, but I couldn't complete the transaction at either place.
Photo Quest is going to have to wait. I'm running out of steam. Think I'll watch a little bit of the Olympics before I go to bed. Later!
