We had a full and busy weekend, like, I imagine, most of you. The kids are on a two week spring break, which has both its ups and downs. I’m sure they would be more thrilled if we were going somewhere exciting, but we’re not, so they’re not as thrilled as, say, their friends who are off to Maui or the like. Such is life for a kid.
I’ve spent most of my spare time this weekend obsessing over black and white photography. I don’t know why but I’ve always loved it. I think it’s just so much more evocative. Anyway, I decided to plumb the depths of my husband’s photography library and quickly found I was way in over my head, so I found some books more along the lines of “black and white pictures for dummies”, which was still over my head but not as deep.
And then I spent most of Sunday afternoon messing around with his raw files from Africa, which, once he discovers this, will probably upset him, though I think- but I don’t know because it was all over my head- that the originals are still in there somewhere.
But my point is, instead of writing to you all about the dangers of Easter lilies or sharing more memes telling you to encourage your friends to get chocolate rabbits, not real ones, I was doing this. I’ll get to the rest of it this week. But in the meantime, because it is what I have, here is my attempt at dramatic Africa pictures.
