Leavin' on a jet plane ... err, and now I'm back again.

I'm sorry, Sir, we don't have THAT book in the library ...Whew. What a stressful and crazy week. I'm a few weeks behind on processing photos from various shoots and going off to a conference related to work last week didn't help the situation at all. I flew out to San Diego Monday afternoon with camera in tow expecting to be able to shoot some while not doing conference activities. Sadly, I didn't get much done while out there. I showed a few friends some of the photos I've been working on recently with Red and Ladybug. Quite a few people were impressed from the sound of it.

One of the things I missed while out there was having access to my light stand and umbrella. It's amazing how much more difficult it is to shoot people when you don't have these things to hold up and modify your flash. I did some shooting tethered to the camera with a better bounce card, but my heart just wasn't into it. On a bright note, I did get some striking photos of palm trees silhouetted against the sunset. I have not yet pulled them off the camera because I've been trying to catch up on sleep, work, and other life things.

I came home Saturday night and ended up going out with some friends for the evening. I'm not sure if that was a mistake or not; I was exhausted from the conference-induced lack of sleep, the plane ride home, and some hard-core partying. When I finally got in bed, I zonked out for the next 12 hours. My bed ... what an amazing piece of construction. It was good to be in it again.

And I promise, I'll put up a few posts in the coming days to bring people up to date on the things I've really been working on. For now, you'll just have to "suffer" through another photo of Red. *grin*
