Day #7 of Trevor Carpenter’s December Challenge. This is a photo of my wife, Allison. She graciously allowed me to photograph her like crazy. I kept telling her not to smile, pretty much so I could make her laugh, I love when she laughs and she gets a very natural smile. The other smiles are too fixed. I’m not happy with the lighting, I need to start taking these earlier in the day and many more outside.
Of course, today I started the day in Tennessee at 4:00am. I then proceeded to fly from Tennessee to Charlotte, NC. My flight was delayed to come home and I got home around 1:00pm. While I was at the airport I did see two potential people that I wanted to take portraits of. I chickened out to ask either one of them. I have to get over this fear.
The Charlotte airport is strange, don’t get me wrong it has free wireless internet so I love it. But the strange thing about the airport is the bathrooms. In some men’s rooms there is an attendant. A man is there who is constantly cleaning the place, handing out paper towels and has a bowl of mints and mouthwash and a tip jar. I just want to pee guilt free in a no tipping zone. It also threw me for a loop because I was not expecting to be expected to give a tip for using the bathroom. I can understand that swanky places in high society or glitzy bars have an attendant but the airport? But not every men’s room has an attendant. So I like to pee on my own terms and I can get my own paper towels thanks. You saved me like what, two seconds. Come on!
I’d been away for a week so I got some time to spend with Eva. I even took a few photos of her in her nice new Christmas Dress.
I was talking with Randy from Utterz today and I learned that Utterz now can automatically upload to Flickr as well as to moveable type. Utterz just keeps getting better and better. And Once I get my new phone I’m going to pay a call on the folks at Utterz to interview them. After the first of the year when I get my new EnV!
