Deb and Mike came up for a visit and we were able to go to the Friday Night Mustang football game. I have never been hotter in my life, plus Alex didn't even get to play! He said it was 115 degrees on the field! Today is Alex's birthday too, but we are going to celebrate tomorrow since he was at school from 6:15 am until 11+ pm!
Back in May, I could not, for the life of me, figure out why the majority of my shots in manual mode were not in focus. Sooo, I put my camera back on auto focus, and I've been in a funk about this since then. Well, today I went in for my regular eye exam and there is definitely something going on with my right eye, so I will see a retina specialist on September 1st. All that to say that I had never thought about the problem being with just one eye. So at lunch today, I changed the camera once again to manual mode and captured this shot of Alex while focusing with my left eye instead of the effected right. I CAN focus! Woo hoo! Too bad I didn't remember to change the white balance setting... :o)
At church today we celebrated 30 years of our organist/choirmaster's talent and dedicated service! One of the choir members made a wonderful AND hilarious powerpoint presentation (this shot is of one of the slides). Thanks Carol!
Football is king here in Texas; we all know that. Another fact that offers proof of its reign is that every offensive lineman on Alex's team (he's #69) is provided with knee braces. For this I am very grateful, since he probably wouldn't wear them if I bought them for him to wear. :o)
Do you ever have photos on your memory card that are a mystery? I seem to remember James asking if he could borrow my camera... I really like this shot and I'm not sure who captured it since the perspective is from the passenger seat in James' car (maybe his girlfriend, Sam?). I applied a Lomo camera effect and love how this draws the eye to the cross.
This is the "before" picture of my heirloom chair that our Blue Lacy, Molly, chewed. She chomped both sides of the chair and matching couch. A friend (thank you Letty!) told me about a furniture refinisher/restorer who might be able work wonders. I called...
Today, Paul delivered the restored and reupholstered chair. I am thrilled! I think they did an amazing job! Can you believe the difference?
I am so thankful that I had them restored (thanks Bill, for urging me to do so)!
The couch will be finished soon and I am having some accent pillows made too. I don't think I have ever been so coordinated (thanks to you Penny).
