After preparing the spaghetti sauce and meatballs and putting it on simmer, I decided to be good and immediately wipe the stove-top. Then of course I did this. Oh well. The spaghetti was yummy. 😀🍝

Taco Table Faux-Pas

“Taco Table” Cedar Park, 2020

Today we had shrimp tacos for dinner, and while I was taking a photo, Mariko said that the pot of beans (which I usually put in a bowl) was ugly and shouldn’t be in the picture. While I don’t disagree, I thought this was a funny photo of her literally pointing it out. Also, we have some Peanuts glasses that have been in use for years, but those shouldn’t be on the table for the pre-eating photo session. Double-foul! 😆

Anyways, the food was delicious. ❤️🌮 We also enjoyed a spicy diced Serrano pepper from the garden too!

“Wide-Angle Sky” Cedar Park, 2020

Today’s photo was taken with my wife’s Olympus E-PL9 camera, using an 18mm (equivalent) lens. It’s nice for getting a wide view of the skies! The Olympus has a few interesting features that I want to try out, including a star-trails mode (not the real name). I just need a clear sky to try it out, and with summer approaching, it’ll be a good time to get some star trails and Milky Way shots. I hope!

Slide Photo

“Slide” Cedar Park, 2020

On my desk here at home is a little box of slides from when I used to shoot slide film with my old Minoltas. I’m not sure where this photo was taken, but it appears to be from just after we moved to Texas from Japan. That would be about 21 years ago. How time flies!

Anyways, I was using my old light-box (22 years old!) as a back-light to I could try taking a photo of it using my Fujifilm X100T. The result wasn’t too bad, but it can’t compare to a scan from my Epson 4490 scanner.

I hope you had a good day!
