I dug out the macro lens again after not having used it for some time.
Missed it. Cassandra was the first victim, but didn’t seem to care much.
Interesting stuff…
My better half has been telling me to shoot a series of pictures like this and frame them as a collage. I really should!

Oh, before you start yelling that the eye has to be in focus…
This was done on purpose, for another purpose 😉

I seemed to have gotten into a bad-movie watching habit with one of my best friends. We’ve seen a good number of them, and really, if you’re in the right mood, they actually CAN turn into good movies.
For example… I saw Guesthouse Paradiso in the movie theater. It’s right up there with Plan 9 from outer space. Really, it’s that bad. But I thought it was hilarious. I cried while watching, nearly soiled myself and had a terrible muscle ache in my abdomen the next day.
See… I was in the right mood when I saw Guesthouse Paradiso.

Now… For my birthday my friend gave me Farce of the Penguins. You know, like March of the Penguins, but then a lot worse. I think it’s mainly because of Bob Saget. MAN! That guy just doesn’t have it. Full House was ok still, but America’s Funniest Homevideos… That was just sad. The man’s got no sense of humor, or at least, he has no clue how to be funny or bring things in a funny way.
Anyway… Farce of the Penguins is a movie I’ll have to watch again when I’m in that mood. Tonight it just didn’t do it for me.
Surprisingly, there WAS someone who it did something to.

Cassandra, our dear cat, couldn’t be dragged away from the tv. It was like she was reading the subtitles. And she was looking so intensively at the tv that it made watching the movie (or actually her) worthwile 😀

As a good friend of mine tought me to say. Big ones!
After all this time of rain, clouds and overcast weather I got up this morning at 5am to shoot the sunrise. And what do you think? Not a cloud in the sky! Not ONE cloud in the sky! So I didn’t get to shoot anything worth posting.
That’s happened to me a good number of times now and it’s getting annoying. But I’m a patient guy… I’ll try again and get more annoyed 😀

Owwell… I’ll give you something else. Earlier this week my new toys arrived and I tested it out on our two kitties.
