As little as possible...

watch the city's fireworks on the river from my front porch, stay away from the grocery stores, watch sappy patriotic movies on tv, maybe work-out, walk, relax a bit....yeah, that'll do.

Today I am partaking in a photo competition.  Must soon leave my home & start snapping pics.  In general I just plan to be out & about taking advantage of the thing that brought me to San Diego in the first place- the weather.

Sounds like fun

Will you post your best on your profile?

Robin Rigby's picture

Not Yet

One of the rules is that you're not allowed to post them online until after the contest is over so not for now.  I did just email my 12 pictures to the woman running the contest & she responded that she thought my pictures were 'amazing' and that she was 'so moved'.  

The rundown was that we were all emailed 12 topics & had 12 hours to take 12 pics, 1 for each of the topics.  I walked about 5-6 miles today & took the trolley from Mission Valley to Old Town to Downtown and took pics all over.  So, really, I logged a lot more miles than that. Smile

Personally, I didn't think they were my best work but one was a self-portrait that I thought turned out pretty cool.  No photoshopping allowed so I partially covered the flash on my camera with a finger and it created a shadow effect that turned out very well.  Because of the time constraints & since I don't have a DSLR yet I used a point & shoot camera.  

UPDATE:  One of my pictures won for it's topic & one was a runner up.  I won for topic "One of These Things is Not Like the Others" (a picture of some of my refrigerator magnets) & was runner up for "It's a Numbers Game" (which is a self-portrait of sorts of my Band of Infinity ring #528). There were some cool pics.  

Facebook lets non-users view pics now so here's the link-

Nice work!

That sounds like a fun contest. I like the way the time limit makes you think on your toes. Good idea with the flash cover.

First, I'm going to put patriotism on display!

Flags, banners and all things red, white and blue.

Gather the extended family in the backyard., my family being my favorite people on earth.  Sear some meet, smoke a chicken, take a dip in the kiddie pool, regain my crown as Scrabble Queen!  All manner of things!

There's a thin line...still...

Not2Taem's picture

Kiddie pool and Scrabble!

What was that address? 

Tex's picture

Scrabble and BBQ - sounds like fun!

Scarbble - new rules or old?

Depends...

There's always one cousin who makes them up as he goes. I think I'll relegate him to chess!

And oh yeah, maybe my son can rustle up that poker game he's been hankerin' for.

There's a thin line...still...
