Ohm Nom

I can't help it.  I am fascinated by Boris, and the new tank lets us see him so much better.

This was taken using a photo app called Camera Zoom fx and using the HD setting.  Minor adjustments were made for light and contrast.

The legend of Borris...

‎We got the fish into a larger tank, 90 gallons. The new tank allows for some closer shots of the fish, which is a lot of fun.

The elusive other cat

‎So I've got pictures galore of our goofball cat, but catching his mother is usually impossible since she immediately starts rubbing on the camera when approached. 

Caught her while she was distracted :P

How is this comfortable?


Freya is not very helpful with this whole decorating thing.

Rock hard abs...

The joys of glow in the dark paint

‎Combined an inexpensive Walmart skull with glow-in-the-dark paint and you get a masterpiece that is Keeping my wife in the dark with a flashlight charging this thing up over and over

Thermal inversion

‎The river valley is susceptible to some nice thermal inversions. Being lazy, all I took were phone camera shots, but they don't really do it justice.

Anna's pic (earlier post) has a much nicer feel to it :)

Personal trainers

‎A standard workout is about 45 minutes, but with these two helping out it stretches it out to about 90...

Snuggles


Freya really lives doing this.

Also, bashing her head against my phone when I try to write text.

Like right now.

Makes it hard to write this. Lol

Morning Surprise

This shot is somewhat misleading; it is a zoom of the view from my work office. Every once in a while, getting in to the office before the sun rises has it's benefits :P

#MacroMonday

‎I'm pretty sure I've already done my tablet case, but frankly I'm running out of things to capture here at the office. If this keeps up, I'm actually going to have to go out and actually select subject matter for my macros... I mean, who does that??

:P

New camera software

‎So I picked up a new camera application for my phone yesterday, and it seems to be fully functional. I wasn't sure what, if any, difference there would be between the software package and so far, they're both fairly good. The one thing I have noticed is that the new software seems to generate larger files. Here's hoping it translates to greater detail and resolution and not just to more noise.

Happy Monday
:)

Macro Monday

‎Good morning, and happy Monday, once again :P.

 Today we get one of the lancets from my glucometer. These little darlings are used to poke blood out on an all too regular basis. They're disposable (this is an "after use" shot) but they *do* make for an interesting macro ;)

Morning assistance

‎So every second day, I do morning weights with my daughter; it's good for me, it's good for her, and it seems to really, really interest the cats. As soon as there's more than two people up and about in the morning, they have to come over and greet. With the weights routine though, they actively assist, rubbing against the weights, against the legs, attacking the calves, lying down right under the weights.

It's a family event... :P

Macro Monday

‎So, as always, I've completely forgotten about #MacroMonday until this very morning, which means I was once again digging through by backpack to see if I've got anything I can use. Today, it's my emergency sewing kit. :P

Happy Monday

Macro Monday

‎All right, I know I've done the pen before, but frankly, I love this thing. For the little amount of actual writing I actually do by hand, it's a wonder. It's now starting to look like a properly used pen, which means I'm running out of ink and am due to clean it up a bit :)

Such a beauty!

My daughter spotted this beautiful dragonfly on the edge of the sidewalk earlier today.  It allowed her to pick it up and hold it for quite a while.

Dragonflies are so beautiful!

I'm really pleased with the quality of photos from my phone.  I upgraded to the Galaxy S4 and, while it has some quirks and toys I don't like or want, I've been really happy with it overall.

The perks of morning walks...

‎Though I find the walks painful and uncomfortable, every once in a while they do have the odd side benefit. The only complaint I have is that I no longer have ready access to my favourite sunrise spot.

Puzzle box

‎Yes, I know technically you can't do Macro Tuesday, but still. This box is one of a series that a co-worker brought in for our frustration and enjoyment. If I'm being honest, I got him to open it because I didn't want to risk breaking it ;)
