Here’s what I’ve been up to:
– My twitter wife Shinyinfo made a pinterest board of all her favorite nerd-larious gifs and photos. It’s amazing. She has magical powers of seeking out all things geeky and combines that talent with the cataloging prowess of a librarian. I like to think she made this board because my birthday is this weekend, but she was probably looking for a way to more effectively say this or possibly this to the world at large.
– I shot my very first wedding reception last weekend, and using a fancy expensive lens, too, instead of my regular kit lens. I love how the photos came out, but I was unprepared for how my back, neck, and shoulders would ache from lugging around that heavy lens. Using a new lens really inspired me, and besides that, I was able to put the camera down after awhile and enjoy the party. I ate a lot of Assyrian food and convinced the mother of the bride to give me all her secrets, er, recipes. I’m not quite sure I’m up to dolma, but I’m pretty sure I can replicate at least a few recipes in my kitchen.
