Photography Ain't Easy

It's definitely not easy when your subjects are independent li'l cusses which move very quickly.

I was out early doing chores the other morning, when a neighbor kitten came to visit.

He's a cutie pie and *very* curious.

So, since I was tired and taking a break, I thought I'd try to get some shots of him.

Here he is investigating the Jerusalem artichoke.

Now, to be fair, I have trouble shooting outside in bright light because the polarization on my glasses interferes with the screen on the camera.  But this shot is just bad:

So I tried again.  Something's in focus - but it's not the kitten. :(

"Don't give up!"  I said to myself.  "You can get something spectacular!"

Unfortunately, my subject was tired of posing.

That's why I prefer to photograph flowers!

Aaaaggghhhh polarisation of glasses and trying to take a portrait photo.  Sooo aggravating.  Plus the indicators on our train stations are polarised as well, so are black if you're wearing prescription sunglasses.  It looks a bit odd to turn your head to the side to read it. Take the glasses off and it's too blurry to read it.  Who invents these things?

No one told me about the polarization problems when I got my new prescription.  I like them otherwise - but it is *SEVERELY* annoying when I can't make the camera work.  I really should go back to my contacts - I saw better with them and didn't have these problems!

(I've debated trying without the glasses, but if I cannot see the E on the eye chart, how would I see the images?)

No, no one told me either.  I thought the indicator boards at the train station weren't working at first.  My distance vision isn't that bad, but my close up vision is poor, particularly in my left eye, and once I needed distance glasses as well as close up I opted for multifocals.  Took a while to get used to them, but they've been great.  I do find though that I'm taking more landscape photos than I used to, and cropping them to portrait on the computer, which is stupid.  Or I take the glasses off, and point and shoot.  Which is possible since I have a point and shoot camera, and don't have to focus :) .  If I close my left eye I can kind of see what is on the screen.

      I don't believe that Abbie is capable of growing emotionally. It's like she came up with her motto to encompass everything and then never took another step forwardIt must be so confusing to be a small child in that house. 

      Abbie is still feeling like the kids are deliberately misbehaving to punish her. As usual when she posts stuff like this, her tone and word choice are deeply concerning. She always prides herself on her stupid turns of phrase so she's aware of the power of words, yet she still chooses ones that raise alarm to parents in the secular world. Explosive anger is a red flag. It's also concerning that her emotions are 'screaming' at her while she feels victimized and bullied by children. Meanwhile Abbie's 'nice husband' lends a listening ear but not a word about Shaun's selfish ass raising a helping hand.

      She uses this post to peddle more of her shitty merch.

      Honestly, I think Lauren and Siah probably have a better chance of being happy and enjoying a healthy family life by flying off radar. They are actively not soliciting followers which means they are sheltered from the haters as well as rabid fans. My nosey side wants to know what Siah does to make money but good for them for not publishing this. Bella and baby could attend school etc without having the paparazzi snapping photos. 
      Both of them are artsy and quirky and I have hope for them to break free

      They're not going anywhere. Josiah recently purchased a large plot of land from JB that is adjacent to the TTH

      So sorry! My husband also had it as an adult twenty years ago. He assumed he had it as a child which was incorrect. Caught it from our vaxxed kids who got it anyway. He was miserable. The only thing I remember were the pox on his bald head.

      Mine got infected and they all turned green. I looked like a swamp monster and I was covered in them head to toe. 
      apparently men get it worst as an adult

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!
