Day 225 – Scout’s Honor

James Jr. received his “Arrow of Light” award tonight and has officially moved from Cub Scouts to Boy Scouts. I usually don’t use selective color, but on this one I desaturated everything but the most saturated colors. It left the beads and his blue shirt in color and the liquid in the jar still looked like it was glowing. (The ceremony that Joseph put on was cool and involved making the stuff in the jar glow.)

Day 218 – Friends

My daughter, Samantha and her friend “D”.

Regarding employment, I have an appointment tomorrow morning at the company where I was laid-off. I’m hopping to turn them into my first client. After all, I happen to know that they don’t have anyone doing my old job. 🙂

Day 171 – How To Train Your…Children

D171Taken with the Nikon D90 and the Nikon 50mm 1:1.8. Edited in Lightroom, and Silver Efex Pro.

Okay, so the title is misleading. I don’t know a thing about training Children. I used to have 2 theories…now I have 2 children and no theories. It’s hard to even get them to stand still for a photo. Don’t get me wrong; I have GREAT children, the best! So it’s not any failing on their part that I can’t pose them. I just haven’t figured out the secret yet.

On a related note, today we went and saw the new movie, How To Train Your Dragon. What a fun movie!
