Happy New Year!

I know, I’ve been a bit of a slacker…

Things have gotten pretty busy at work now that the season is in full swing, so It may be a while until I get to make another post here or take any decent photos for that matter.

Just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year, and I’ll see you when the ground thaws! 😉

I promise no more lilies, after this one!

There’s something about this photo that I like. I think its the nifty pattern the fence bokeh makes in the background. And maybe the pop of color from the flowers against the gray of the fence. I wasn’t originally a bit fan of this one, but it has grown on me a bit.

I was all excited about having the day off, and was hoping to get out and do some shooting today, but alas it’s raining. So I’ll have to wait a bit to finish up that roll of film. But at least I got my oil changed, and I’ve been needing to do that for a while now. Guess I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon watching some TV with the katzen.

I’m also a bit torn on my upcoming dslr purchase. I’ve been saving for a Nikon D80, but I’ve been doing some research, and I’ve found the the D200 I can get used for a decent price. (for the body only, vs the D80 package). Its probably way more camera than I’ll ever need, BUT it will meter with my old manual Nikkor lenses. The D80 will work with those lenses as well, but it won’t meter. I’m not sure how much of a pain that will be for me, or if buying the D200 used is even a good idea. Although the site I saw it on, I have purchased from in the past, and they’ve been nothing short of fantastic, so I’m not terribly worried. Any comments or ideas are welcome. I need some major help with this decision.

Hello!

Hope everyone had a wonderful 4th! I had a quiet night at home with The Boy, and the katzen. It was a much needed rest.

Got out and about with my Lensbaby this past week. I haven’t dusted that little guy off in a while, and thought it was about time I started using it again. I forgot how fun it was.

Here’s one of the shots I got with my LB, and theres a few more over in my Flickr gallery. Hopefully I’ll get some more up soon, but first I have to go develop some film.

Evie 2

Originally uploaded by F.Scala

This is Evie. She is a spunky little ball of energy.

She was rescued recently by a friend of mine. The story I was told, (as well as her husband) was that she was driving down Sunrise Highway, and 3 kittens hopped out of a box over on the side of the road. This little one was the only one she could catch.

Her husband doesn’t believe the tale. It does seem a little far fetched that someone could see -much less stop for- a box of kittens while doing 70 on Montauk Hwy… But little Evie seems to have won their heart anyway, and so she has a new home, wherever she came from. Much to the disappointment of their first cat Chloe, who was feeling a bit camera-shy this weekend.

Cat Owner’s Prayer

Because I’m only human,
It’s sometimes hard to be
The wise, all-knowing creature
That my cat expects of me

And so I pray for special help
To somehow understand
The subtle implications
Of each proud meowed command.

Oh, let me not forget that chairs
Were put on earth to shred;
And what I like to call a lap
Is actually a bed.

I know it’s really lots to ask
But please, oh please, take pity;
And though I’m only human,
Make me worthy of my kitty!
