Some pics from the trip home February 21, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — amygeekgrl @ 11:03 pm

OK, I know I’m doing this totally backwards (working on pics from our drive home tonight first), but I’m left-handed and tend to do things a bit differently. I’ve also been known to read magazines backwards.

Honestly, I took a ton of pics on JUST our drive home tonight (Jody was driving – phew!) ;). I filled my memory card and even had to go back and delete some pics so I’d have more room to play. After reading a bit in a couple photography magazines (backwards, of course), I got inspired and decided to play around with exposure using the sunset and then with car headlights. My experimenting produced some neat results.

Here are some of us on the way home and then a couple of my “playing” pics. πŸ™‚ Click the pics to see them larger.

Ava – just waking up after a nap in the car:

Jody – looking so cool while driving:

The plains of Colorado and me – in the sideview mirror (Honestly, that picture is mostly of me – the view is not of anything in particular. I just thought it was cool to catch myself in the mirror.):

The sunset tonight in Colorado (purposely underexposed):

Car and traffic lights at night (long exposure):

    As always, these are really well done. I love the artistic ones. They are so much fun. But of course my heart goes out to the Ava picture.

    I’m glad your trip went well.
    Isn’t it nice to sleep in your own bed?

    Come check out the new Meme I started! It’s the Midweek Munchies Post with a code to (hopefully) make it easier. I would love for you to help get this thing started and help spread the word! I think it will be fun!!!

    Thank you all. πŸ™‚ Sorry I didn’t get a chance to blog today. Had to catch up on piles of laundry and get the house in order, then had a girls’ night out tonight.
