Strobist info: 430ex bounced off ceiling.

 

I woke up later than I wanted to this morning. After gathering my wits about me I drove Clarissa out to get a few things for band camp.

 

While on the road I got a phone call from my dad letting me know that my grandmother is about to pass away. I feel so guilty about not seeing her the last time I was in Hattiesburg. Now it seems that I might only get to see her for the last time at her funeral. It's an eye opener to how busy I truly have been. I need to slow down sometimes.

 

On that note, I got back home and after getting our new armoire in our bedroom and the television and DVDR backin place, I spent the rest of the afternoon working on ads for Travelhost.

 

Come dinner time the girls fed me and celebrated Father's day a night early since Clarissa will be in camp tomorrow. Mrs. Minnie got me a new Superman shirt and action figure. Clarissa got me the hardback collection of comics from "Secret War" and Tam got me "Elizabethtown" and some cool shirts. I feel like I'm undeserving. They're so good to me.

 

I shot this for several reasons.

1.) They think I'm a Super Dad ;-).

2.) It was a present and I liked it.

3.) I'm way excited about seeing "Superman Returns"

 

I just wish I'd have done something with my hair before I took it.. D'oh!

    Thanks guys, it was nice to get a little traffic on this one recently.
  • Mickey Johnson 7y

    So, I finally got around to going over onto Imagekind and checking out what you had for sale over there... It really didn't take me very long to decide this was one I needed to own a nice print of since it is my original favorite of yours.

    Anyways... since I don't think the site can tell you who bought stuff, when you see that one of these got snapped up today... yeah, that was me. And now I can't wait for it to get here.

  • AndYaDontStop 7y

    funny, never saw this picture until now, and my 4th day of 365 has my interpretation with a little "america's best dance crew" twist to it...plus a payphone to boot (couldn't find an actual phone booth...go figure)
