it seems that all of my various pursuits overlap and affect one another. today it was a runaway ball of yarn that caused me to pull my camera out…
it was a gorgeous day today.
i usually stay at work late because it’s almost the only chance i have to see everyone. they’re usually coming as i’m going.
but today, the clock hit 4:00, and i was out of there. i wanted to enjoy a little bit of the warm california sun. i had a rubio’s coupon that was going to expire. so i grabbed some dinner and went to the park.
i ate. (shrimp burrito. yum.) i crocheted. (baskets? bowls? i haven’t decided what to call them…) i read. (“hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy”… love it! haven’t read it in forever.)
it was getting dark, so i packed up to leave. as i walked to the car, i looked back to make sure i hadn’t left anything at the table. i hadn’t. but somehow a ball of white yarn had fallen out of my bag and left a trail hansel-and-gretel-like from a nearby tree to me.
as i wound the yarn back up, picking bits of leaf and grass from it, i realized that the sun was setting and the sky was gorgeous. so i pulled out my new camera and tried to take some photos that made me feel like i deserved to own it.
i don’t think i quite achieved that… but i did finally use my telephoto lens and managed to get closer to some flowers high up in a tree.
and while the freeway and street lights messed up most of my sunset/sky photos, i did have a few that i liked. this one used the sepia filter…
while not fantastic… i do like them and i did get to play a little more with my camera. i need to know how to work the thing before vacation!
thank you, little ball of white yarn.
