It's starting to look like High School Football Season and I think DJ and I have to go to a Columbus game and blog about it. Anybody want to come along? I've never been to a Cbus football game. It's hard to find a schedule anywhere, even their school website does not post a schedule (don't get me started . . . .) . They play Wisconsin Dells this Friday at 7:00. Does it cost anything? I have not been to a High School football game since . . . . . the beginning of time and then I think I was in an MD 20/20 high at the time. Was that the night I got beat up? hmmmmmm No - that was the night we put potatoes in the tail pipes of the Jefferson bus! Well - NOT ACTUALLY ME!!! But I knew about it.
Speaking of High School. When did Senior pictures become so . . . not cookie cutter. I remember when I had my senior photo I would put on a suit (and shorts), sit in a chair, turn my head and cough . . .no wait . . wrong memory . . .that was my dentist! Anyway I would turn my head - click click all done. Now pictures are actually pretty good looking.
BTW -hey you males - you know why you turn your head to cough when the doctor is fondling your testicles don't you? So you don't cough in his face. HELLO!!!!
Anyway - I was asked to take some senior pictures and I normally decline because it's not really my forte' which I don't understand because, really . . I'm not bad at all with portraits. It's just that I normally don't have a lot of control over what the final outcome will be. I feel I have no room for . . . creativity!
Well - yesterday a friend talked me into a job and here are SOME of the results!
So I shot the shoot and ended up with 21 images on my first pass of photos. I have yet to look DEEP into the 104 total shots! YIKES - how do wedding photographers do it when they have to dive into 2000 images for a wedding. That would be like driving through Nebraska! Mind numbing. I guess that is why they make the big bucks!
In other news - Not much else happened this weekend. An inch of rain in Columbus Friday in the big storm. Lots of twigs and branches down.
Speaking of storms here is a photo of our Sun showing several a coronal holes. Coronal holes (yellow areas) are places in the sun’s atmosphere where the magnetic field opens up and allows solar wind to escape.
This is facing earth and we should be feeling old SOLs wrath Tuesday so be careful when you are using your compass.
Ten years ago tonight the very first Survivor finale' was aired and this was the first and last time the winner was declared on location! Trivia alert - Sonja Christopher was the very first Survivor to be booted out! That final episode of Survivor was watched by 51.7 million viewers. PETA criticized the show because contestants were forced to trap and eat rats! As far as viewership all but one episode gain viewers from the previous week.
This year Survivor is introducing a new twist! - The Medallion of Power which can be used to give an advantage in an immunity challenge. Once used, it is then transferred to the opposing tribe.
It's "old" against young this year as the Over 40 will take on the under 30. Brains against power.
It's all I got!
Have a great day.
