Happy Anniversary to me and The Husband! 17 years today.

That is a LONG time. Not as long as some, longer than others.

My anniversary dinner is in a couple of days with another couple who we’ve been friends with for 1o years. Our oldest girls went to preschool together so naturally we became fast friends.

But no anniversary pictures tonight. That’s just filler.

It was a grey day today. There’s been too many of those, and I’m tempted to call Bullshit! to those who insist the sky is actually blue. ┬áBut I took my camera to work, and I remembered to bring it home. In between I took some pictures at the airport.

I tried to get a couple of some landing aircraft, but they weren’t all that interesting. What was interesting was a big ole huge Air Force bird lumbering its way down the length of the field to takeoff to destinations unknown.

Where might you be going, big guy?

I’m an Army girl myself, but even with this Air Force bird making it’s way down the airport I can’t help but smile.

So, to the picture. I was fussing about with the close in versus far away focal points. I can’t recall how to do that manually, so I let the Auto focus do it for me. Something to work on.

I’d like to rant about working late, how cold it is, my headache and other general bad luck but I don’t have the energy. *yawn*

The only thing good about working late tonight was that I had a dark road to myself long enough to try out the night time setting on my camera (one of those settings I discovered when I *finally* read my user’s manual!). I first tried taking a picture of one of the runways near my work, but I think I needed to have a tripod handy to get a clear, steadied shot. Instead, I directed my attention to the terminal and placed my camera on top of my car to steady the camera.

It’s my first “clean” night time shot, and I’m pretty happy with it. I’m planning on peeking at the stats on the picture to see what the camera’s setting were for this; maybe I can replicate it by hand.

If only one of those aircraft would take me to a warmer place.

Day 23, tired.
