May You Have Something Wonderful to Drink as You Ring In the New Year!

We're heading to Kenny & Elaine's to ring in the New Years with friends, good food & games. It will be a nice way to start off 2006. This is the 2 year anniversary of our engagement too - I can't believe it has only been two years - what a wonderful time it has been. I couldn't ask for a more wonderful husband and a better family.


Happy New Year! Here is to a fabulous 2006!


Taken at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, Cockrell Butterfly Exhibit with the new 50mm lens and a +2 diopter filter. Shot in RAW, resized and converted to a TIF in Photoshop CS2 with *no* other editing. Props to Robyn for helping me get the RAW-to-TIF-to-Flickr process down.


As I was taking this photograph, I had to stand on a rocky edge of one of the flowerbeds to get the shot. A volunteer quickly came over and told me that I had to get down. It made me realize how grateful I am that the museum welcomes photographers with open arms - as long as we're not climbing all over the slippery rocks. Photography is not a crime.
