When I get back to work at the newspaper after a long weekend, I’ll typically make a new folder for my non-work pictures called “Weekend Pics,” or some variation on that theme. I had a few that I liked or had fun with this time, so I thought, “I’ll post some of these,” at least to show off / see if the subscription tab is working. Anyways, let me know what you think, that is, if anyone is reading this.
Meghan and I took a Friday evening road trip to Effingham, which kind of sucks, because when Effingham is the interesting place you go to on weekends, you must live somewhere kind of boring. Before going, Meghan wanted me to dress kind of nice and for some reason, she had a problem with what I decided to wear…
After changing what I had on, we departed and got some nice pics on the way out of town, including some lovely reflections…
This one was shot on the way out of town. I know it’s just a gas station, but I really like how everything comes together. This would be a candidate for setting up a tripod and doing an HDR shot. But we just stopped the car and shot the photo out the window.
In Effingham, we got some dinner at Friday’s which has WAY better service than the one in Oak Park. Then we enjoyed a little cosmic bowling at K-Bowl in Effingham. As I have described to my snickering coworkers, I enjoy bowling way more than my sub-100 scores would have you believe. On the way back to Flora, we stopped at Effingham’s big cross and got these two shots. ISO 200, just used a timer and let the camera rest on the trunk. I had a tripod with me, but meh.
I’m sorry about that joke. Not sorry enough to stop making them though.
And it was back to Flora for us for a nice night’s rest. Just kidding, the dogs wouldn’t shut up. Perils of pet ownership, eh.
