The Daily Shoot assignment today is “Make a photograph that features a sign of some sort today. Maybe a stop sign. Maybe an information sign. Or an advert.” I tried a couple different things today. I shot this magnet that I love early today, but didn’t get a shot I liked of it until I took it outside to get natural light. I had to wait until I had a white(ish) truck to put it on though. So I actually ended up shooting this several times at several settings. This final version was outdoors with nothing but natural light, ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/100.
The other idea I had for the assignment was an American Sign Language sign…
…but when I looked at the Daily Shoot entries I saw that someone else had done something similar, and I didn’t want to look like I had stolen someone’s idea, so this one is just for my blog followers. “I love you!” My sweet kids even said it to me while they signed it – maybe they do love me!
We are getting ready to leave for our week long vacation to South Dakota (Mt. Rushmore and the other attractions in the Rapid City area – whoohoo!!). We are excited about it because we will be meeting my oldest daughter, Jenny, and her family over there, and we will get to spend 5 days with them! I can’t wait! I will be taking my laptop since I have to work while we’re vacationing, so you can count on daily posts from me! (Besides that, I have gone 229 days without missing, so I don’t want to skip a day now!)
Thanks, everyone, for reading my blog. I appreciate you!
