day 300: night lights

Photobucket


Here's another shot from my night photography experiment. My husband isn't crazy about this one, but I kind of like it. :-) It's different, and I like to try new things. I sat my camera on a bench, and captured headlights and street lights in the background.

Now for a confession: I had a major bad mom day today. My kids were home for fall break, and I was on the computer entirely too long in the morning - bleh. I hate when I do that! I took them out all afternoon, but felt so awful for the slow start to our day. Sooooo, I'm posting tomorrow's Project 365 picture now, and the computer will be off all day tomorrow. My kids are awesome, and they deserve a mom that is present. Have you ever had a day like that? One of my favorite blogs is Under the Sycamore, and I read something the other day that is still in my head: "Don't blog and parent." So tomorrow is going to be a blog-free zone. :-) Have a great Tuesday!

Enjoy your day off! I totally know what you mean, it's way too easy to get sucked into blogging or the computer in general! You're a good mom for recognizing it. :)

Enjoy your day of play with the kids! I love your picture of the street lights - I think it's fantastic! It's really fun to experiment with everything the camera can do, whether they turn out great (yours did!) or not.

Hope you enjoyed your blog free day today! Whenever my husband is home -- Sunday's and Monday's - I try to spend as little time as possible on the computer. That's why I tend to post an iphone photo on Sunday.

I think this is neat! I love a little abstract art now and then.
