It was gorgeous out today, and I had the camera out. I totally should have snapped some pictures of the garden, and posted a little update. Perhaps tomorrow (even though it’s supposed to rain).
Instead, I took pictures of haybales. Round haybales, to be precise.
A normal person might ask me “why?” Why indeed. Well, it’s a long story. Let me shorten it.
My mother asked for one thing for Christmas. A picture of a haybale, preferably black and white, to go above the fireplace. The catch(es)? I had to take the picture, and it had to be a round haybale. I’ll cut the drama and just tell you than I failed miserably. My mother was not thrilled.
Tomorrow is her birthday. 51. I was not home for 50. I think I may have failed pretty miserably at whatever gift I gave her for 50. So I spent my afternoon searching out round haybales. I found them. The results are below.
My question for you, then, dear readers (of which I think I can count on three. You know who you are.) is: Which photo should I get printed, all nice and professional-like at Foto-One, for my mother’s birthday? Keep in mind these things: 1) she will mat it and frame it so that it is square, 2) it will go above a stone fireplace mantel, 3) the frame will be wide and black (she and I have similar aesthetic senses when it comes to framing), and 4) she requested black and white (but i kinda like the tri-color one). Respond in the comments section, plz.
Oh, I’ve been digging the Flash-Animation Gallery builder on Lightroom lately, ever since I re-did my portfolio for a grant. Hence, the Flash-Animation gallery of the haybales. When voting, plz use their number (i.e. 1/4, 2/4, 3/4, 4/4). Thx!!!
