Frankly, as enriching and rewarding as these three weeks of Photo 101 have been to my blogging iPhone 6 skills, sometimes I read my emails that contain the assignments and sigh.
Take my observation about lesson 14 and scale, for example. Michelle found a tiny toy baby on a cake at a fantastic bakery in New Orleans to place on a wildly picturesque though gnarly fence in front of a matched-tone green door … Back up, to New Orleans. Michelle and Cheri get to take and share photographs from some wonderfully exotic locations around our world.
Spring comes tomorrow! In Syracuse, N.Y., USA, it was 24 degrees F this morning!! There’s another sigh. Not feeling very exotic today.
Let’s go clever. I hope. I’ll be literal. I’ll remain in the Little Bitty in the Syracuse city neighborhood of Eastwood after my dear wife Karen heads off to work at the offices of SMG and pull out our white scale. It looks good on the living room floor. How big is it, though?
We’ll add a coffee cup cherished by MDW Karen to help you decide. She bought this while on a girls-only vacation to Myrtle Beach, S.C., because it reminded her of hubby back home. Wow. We like a lot of room to move around on our scale, don’t we?
Now let’s try my coffee cup. Whoa! Do we have to balance on one foot to get a proper reading on that little thing?
I guess we need to find a way around my trickery, don’t we?
Karen’s cup is a novelty knickknack. It’d even call it a tchotchke except I’m unsure of how to spell that. In other words, we keep it displayed on a bookshelf, my initials facing outward. And there’s a reason I always refer to my daily morning companion as the coffee cup as big as my head, no?
What scale is your scale? What scale is your coffee cup? Do you also wonder why WordPress workers get to post photos from so many great places?
