March 13th, Day 72: Things are getting weird…

In my brain, that is.

Some days, when I’ve been working, or the dog is annoying, or it’s been raining non-stop since I woke up, or whatever, I don’t end up spending a lot of time taking photos.

Then, around 11pm I start to get panicky, haha. This is day 72, and though I have gotten this far before, I really don’t feel like starting the whole 365 thing over again. If not this time, maybe never! (*gasp*)

So anyway, 11pm. And I’m sorry.

Chewie found my Easter Candy.

March 3rd, Day 62: Sunshine!

I woke to sunshine this morning! It was a pleasant change from all the gray gloom we’ve been having. I grabbed my Easter supplies, which I had purchased and had “on deck” for just a morning, and headed outside to take some photos in the grass.

I definitely want to work with these subjects more, on my next sunny opportunity, here’s what we have so far.

The Bellevue Botanical Gardens are beautiful this time of year.

In other news, today is my dad’s birthday.  Happy Birthday Daddy! :)

Technologically speaking

My dad works in the telecommunications department at a hospital, and he has worked with telephone related stuff for as long as I can remember (my whole life? probably).

He used to bring home brand new phones that needed to be assembled. They each came in a box with all the parts in little plastic bags. My sisters and I would help put them together (it wasn’t super complicated, just attaching the base to the phone cord and the cord to the handheld part. I mean, come on, we were under 10 years old!). After we were finished (or possibly after we decided we’d had enough, I can’t remember) we would put the plastic bags on our feet and “skate” up and down the hallway on the carpet. It was super fun.

What does this have to do with today’s technology challenge? Well, I guess it’s a stretch. I’m reminiscing here, leave me alone! ;)

For today’s challenge I took a photo of another fun telephone thing my dad brought home for us to play with.

Telephone wire! While visiting my dad at work one day I discovered the awesomeness of this stuff. It’s multi-colored, bendable, and endless in availability! Now, whenever they move telephone lines around, or reroute something, he brings some of this home.

It’s so weird to think that (when using a land line) our conversations are transmitted over this little wire.

I used my new 36mm extension tube and my 18-55mm lens to get this close. I used technology to photograph technology. Aren’t I cool? :D
