The Before

Playing with p&s camera and post-processing in Photoshop.

Yep... one more eye apt.
Hopefully, last check-up before my surgery.
I feel like I'm living at doctors offices these days.

83/365 - March 24th, 2009

Doctors apt... My Pre-Op apt. with my primary care physician, I am now cleared to count down the days until I go under the knife... April 1st.

82/365 - March 23rd, 2009

Eye apt. again today.

Shot hand held in my kitchen with the D300, late at night, post-processed in Photoshop.

Been doing a lot of thinking this week, and the surgeon, seems to think after my operation (to address my tumor), that I will have minimal scarring, but, just in case, I took the P&S camera and tried to get a quick, but decent shot, of my face beforehand.

79/365 - March 20th, 2009

Still trying to work on my trigger finger. This one was taken with a my P&S camera.

78/365 - March 19th, 2009

No photos taken today.... This one was taken 2 days ago on March 17th.

77/365 - March 18th, 2009

Playing with the P&S camera and different perspectives.

76/365 - March 17th, 2009

Got my MRI results back...

I have a hopefully, most probably,
benign tumor on my optical nerve.

Needless to say, I didn't take this photo,
but I thought it would count as today's photo.

Now, my doctors and I just need to figure
the best course of action for my treatment.

Keep your fingers crossed, I can save my eyesight!

(Blind photographers... probably don't make much money! LoL!!!)

BTW - Happy St. Patrick's Day, Everyone!

75/365 - March 16th, 2009

Been having a lot of trouble seeing out of my left eye,
so I went to a ophthalmologist apt. today.

I'm not sure why I'm smiling,
I just had my eyes dilated,
and I am on my way to get blood work,
so I can get an MRI tomorrow.
Fun! NOT!

I thik the smile, is because
of the fashionable sunglasses.

Don't you just love my fashionable sunglasses???

Kyle playing hockey, in a "real" game. We have done clinic all season (not a team, no real games), and he was so excited to play in a "real" game, against another team. In fact this weekend, was a jamboree, and he got to play in three games. His team won 2 of the 3. Can you just imagine the excitement for a 5 year old! Check out the concentration on his face. I love it.

Want to see more pics? Check out my albums on my other website...

by trying to catch some birds flying.

My daughter thinks she is so big, and can walk the dog. It's more like the dog walks her. LoL.

My daughter hamming it up for the camera.

57/365 - February 26th, 2009

I know that these are not very techically correct, I was testing some lights, and my light meter. (Confirmed, I need to send the light meter to be repaired. Not so happy about.) But, for the first time in a long time, I got my hubby to patiently sit in front of my camera, so I could run through tests. Thanks Ken! I really need to edit these images... they SOOC images.

56/365 - February 25th, 2009

My kids... actually sharing!

Don't tell them,
or it won't happen again
for a long time. LoL!

Chatting with a friend about posing techniques and how without changing anything (camera pov, lighting, or camera settings), you can get a completly different photo and feeling. This is a quick illustration of that. One has a more masculine feeling and one is more feminine feeling.
