Forget March Madness… April is here!

April 5th, 2014 1 comment

March was crazy.

It had travel…

 15/47: Luggage

Concerts…

 10/47: Roots & Boots

 Events near and dear to my heart…

11/47: 2014 Music City Muscle Walk

Dental appointments…

21/47: Sedative

A fantastic photoshoot…

18/47: Family photoshoot

And the arrival of Spring and its allergies…

26/47: Blooming

But April will be far crazier.

I literally — LITERALLY — have only 3 days this entire month that don’t have something scheduled in them. Be it work, events, get-togethers, meetings, photoshoots… there is something every day except three. I’m tired just thinking about it! Tired, but also exhilarated.

I’ll sleep in May.

Airplane mode

November 20th, 2013 1 comment

I flew from Nashville to New Orleans to Austin today. It was a full day of travel, but it was made much more amusing by a change by the FAA.

I got to leave my cell phone on the entire time. In airplane mode, of course. But no need to power down or back up. I could read, play games, whatever from start to finish. Both my flights happened to be Wi-Fi enabled planes, too, which was just… BONUS. I was able to play on Twitter, Facebook and Words with Friends the entire time I traveled.

It was kinda awesome. It made the time pass much faster, and, like I said, it made the trip a bit amusing. Tweeting from somewhere over Mississippi. Craziness.

But here is my favorite part. I could finally take photos coming in and out of the airports… images I’ve wanted to capture for years now will finally be captured. I am positively giddy about that fact.  Twitter, Facebook, etc. is awesome if the flight has Wi-Fi. If it doesn’t though, I can snap my photos and listen to downloaded playlists off Spotify, happy as a clam. Thank you FAA for making this change!!

A few photos from today:

photosharebuttonPhoto Share is my personal replacement for Weekly Winners, since that link exchange is no longer happening. It’s just my own challenge to take great photos through the week month, as it gives me a venue to share some of them on this blog. Consider it my own little P.S. on the week month before.

Photos this week taken with my Sony DSLR A230 or Canon EOS Rebel T3 or Nikon CoolPix L20. Edited using Lightroom 3… or using my Droid Razr and Instagram. You can probably figure out which is which.
