day 44: Allison and Mark were nice enough to split the difference and drive up to Anaheim to meet Ben and I today for some mini-golf and hangin’ out. It’s always fabulous to see them and we had so much fun, even if I do stink at mini-golf!
I couldn’t resist posting the flower photo to show off my gumpaste skills, but I also couldn’t live with posting what was admittedly not my best photo of the day. This is my official best photo of the day. Ben and I took a walk and stopped in a park to swing. Here he is catching some air on the dismount.
day 42: We got some rain in LA today. Not just rain, rain that made the sky turn black and the end of the world seem imminent. Particularly while driving down Olympic towards the looming towers of Century City.
day 41: While driving today I noticed a pole along the side of the road that had been severed in half and was dangling by its wires. I kept thinking about how creepy it was hanging like that… and whether or not the light would be on at night. The answer is yes. And it is decidedly more eerie to see when it is emitting its sickly yellow glow over the sidewalk.
day 40: Today we took Rita to the mecca for dogs… the pet store. It is her favorite outing for two reasons: not only does she get to ride in the car but everyone who works at the store gives her treats and scratches her ears. Now if only we could find a store that gave out free food and massages for people.
day 39: Ben reminded me that one of the “rules” for the photo-a-day project was to take at least one photo of myself every month. The reason I hadn’t taken any so far is that I can’t help making stupid faces when I take pictures of myself (see above). I decided to combine my self portraiture with a photoshop experiment in digital cross processing. Kind of a “hip and funky” thing that the “cool kids” (i.e. my favorite photographers) are doing these days. It’s just a first attempt but I think I get the concept at least. Now I’m going to climb in a hole and die of embarrassment at having posted this photo.
