I think I am "marking time" waiting for spring to arrive. Each day I check the weather forecast only to see more cold or more snow coming in.......... and I huddle in the house pulling the 4 walls tightly around me and tap my toe impatiently.
That is not to say I haven't been out of the house... I am still going to the gym 3x a week. Yesterday was a "bitch" to drag myself out..... it was -32 with the wind chill...... the car doesn't even get warm - no matter how long I leave it running before heading outside.........
BUT I have received my new photo assignment "playing with light". It's due in 2 weeks - lots of time to figure out how I am going to "play with light". I did do some research and discovered I could drill a small hole in the base of a light bulb - screw the bulb in - and take pictures of the filament exploding. But I don't know - they advise having a fire extinguisher on hand - so that may not be something I want to experiment with......... I do have a couple of ideas though - that don't involve the possibility of setting the house on fire.
Sir is away next week - in Montreal - helping out a "sick" friend..... that might be a good time to experiment with this latest assignment.
And tomorrow we are going - with some friends - to see 50 Shades of Grey - that vilified movie - well vilified on Fetlife. I read the books and found them to be a little too romance novel for my liking - but the "hot" parts were hot! I wanna see if the film can do it better than my imagination. Anyone wanna place bets??
Now - back to marking time.............
