OBSERVATIONS: I love it when there's lots of stuff to take pictures of in a week. Granted, this doesn't happen every time, and it's always surprising to me how many shots I have to choose from even on the seemingly uneventful weeks.
But last week? We had The Theatre, people. And when you have The Theatre (said with a haughty, dramatic, vaguely British accent), you've got photographic gold, baby.
I received an inexpensive, refurbished Canon 70-300 zoom lens last Christmas and I was not expecting it to be as great as it has been for shooting in such low light and at such high resolution, but I'll be damned if it isn't pretty dag nab good. (You remember the Theatre post from the other day, yes?)
Here are my pages for the week:
If you see the dark, grainy photo of Dan Zielske, that's from our first FaceTime video chat after his arrival in Slovenia. I took a simple screen shot to save the image. Oh, technology. You are amazing.
More photographic gold from The Theatre indeed. Also last week, I attended a house party here in St. Paul to celebrate the release of "Train Like a Mother" written by the amazing duo of Sarah Bowen Shea and Dimity McDowell. I am just tucking into the book now, and it has the same cheeky, hilarious tone as their first book. If you are a runner, or if you know a runner, and you or she is female, I highly recommend checking these books out.
Here's my weekly recap:
And a few other close ups:
Yes, I did have to save that story. That kid makes my inner 6th grade boy laugh out loud.
And that is all she wrote for Week 17.
