First off, apologies for not A) not posting sooner and B) not writing as to why Project365 has been lacking this week. As anyone (and by anyone, I mean my wife) can tell you, it's been an insanely busy week.
Saturday: Mike, Me, Blazers, Lakers.
Sunday: Super Bowl, Birthday Party
Monday: Work, Birthday, Dinner-Out, Kids, Sleep
Tuesday: Work, Exhausted from Night Prior
Wednesday: Work, Portland, Shopping, EPIC Billy Joel/Elton John Show
Thursday: Work, Friday Night Lights Finale on TiVo, Exhausted from Night Prior
Friday: Work, Packing for Weekend Trip to The Coast
So there. Aside from all that, one evening I started uploading photos off my camera. I think one (or more) of the photos were corrupted in some way and it totally halts my system every time I open Lightroom. Not only that, but Apple decided to release Aperture 3 this week, and it intrigues me enough that I decided to download the trial and give it a shot. But that requires that I learn a new interface for managing and developing my photos and that takes time. More time than I thought.
Life was so much easier at 29.
Regardless, I can't tell you all how much I'm looking forward to this weekend. While it's always great to hit the coast with my family over a long weekend, I'm also really excited about the photographic opportunities that may present themselves. I think most of my photos in the Portfolio section are from excursions to the Oregon Coast. I'll try to add a few by next week. The weather doesn't look like promising, but you never know where you can find a little magic.
Also, I wanted to express my gratitude to the few people who check this site regularly. Thanks so much for your comments and e-mails. I've had some great reaction to the few shots I posted of The Gorge. It's always great to have people compliment shots that aren't of my kids. It's easy to tell people how cute their kids are, but landscapes are a different beast. And shooting them is something I certainly don't consider my forte.
So while I'm still behind posting a couple photos from 2/9 and 2/12, I'll get them up soon. It's just a matter of finding the moments. The hunt is on.
Happy Valentine's Day.
