Photo-A-Day #1830

I am no fan of meetings. Rarely are meetings at all productive or interesting. I don’t often have much to say in them either because I don’t see the point of belaboring the point just to make a point that is actually rather… pointless. So when I get in a room and the air gets sucked out or heated up I start to get sleepy. I fight it as hard as I can but then the hum of the projector and the drone of a speakers voice puts me into a continual head bob neck jerk rhythm. The worst is when I shut one eye to give it some rest and keep the other eye open. The yawning becomes chronic, repetitive and will not stop. I think that when I host my next meeting I will model it after the 22 minute meeting.

On the way out of work I stopped and took today’s photo of the blossoms on the trees. I noticed them on the way in and they looked great. I forget to take a photo of them each and every year. So, this year I stopped and made sure I got a shot. Up close the flowers didn’t look that great, but I think that this photo captures the delicate softness of the petals in the background. I’m also starting to figure out things like the clouds in the sky, they are not as cool as the ones from the tree last Monday.

Allison and Eva leave for Florida tomorrow. I’m sure going to miss them around here. I had no vacation time left when the trip was planned. That is okay, I’m saving my vacation time for later in the fall for trips to some blogging events. I sure will miss some time in the pool with Eva, she is swimming like a fish. She swims so well that one of the teachers suggested that Allison put Eva in a higher class. I’m pretty impressed by that. Well, early night tonight because tomorrow morning is going to come very, very soon. 4:00am, ouch.

    Nice picture the cloud in the backgroud is slightly over exposed but I don’t think you could have done anything about that. The lighting you got on the blossoms has a nice effect.

    Which mode is the camera in when you are shooting these pictures.
    .-= Look at what Andy wrote blog ..The Chicken Chase is coming =-.

      Andy,

      I think that the mode was actually on Auto. I sometimes forget to change modes before I start shooting. I usually shoot, and then adjust modes and shoot some more. Yesterday I just shot. I think that Flickr has way more EXIF data on each photo and that service probably tells the mode. I can’t always remember. Glad you liked the photo despite the overexposure of the clouds.

    Have you ever seen the movie ” The Point” based on the album by Harry Nillson

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Point!

    You would like it then you would get the point.
    Get those glasses with eyeballs and then you can sleep during the meetings as long as you prop up your head, don’t drool, snore or tip over.
