I was doing some work trying to debug a 7 year old computer that was dying. I was in the process of shuffling hard drives around and 9-year-old Dinah was watching me. I was pointing out various components (RAM, CPU, hard drives, etc) and explaining what they are and how they work at a high level.
I asked her if she had any questions. She thought about it for a bit, and then she asked, “Dad, do you have a social life.”
It was all I could do to not laugh and make her feel bad. Although, later I think she figured out what she said and tried to cover it with “I don’t even know what a social life is.”
I took the kids to the Shedd Aquarium on Friday. The Jellies exhibit is still set up and this is set up for photography. All the jellyfish are set up in colored tanks to offset their color and lit well enough that you can easily get some spectacular shots.
You also get a bonus seahorse in there that wasn’t part of the Jellies exhibit, but I really liked the shot and wanted to share it.
Sarah got me a swanky background kit, and this was my first attempt at using it along with the new 580EXii flash. I also have white and chroma key green backdrops. I’m pretty happy with how this came out.
We celebrated my Grandpa’s 90th birthday today. He was surrounded by his children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and other extended family. He’s been one of the most influential people in my life and it delights me beyond words that he gets to know my children as well.
