Enough technical whining...SO my "plan" for October is to capture images with the overall loose-definition of "nature". Since I feel rather ATTACKED BY NATURE (aka stink-bugs-that-suck). Without a further waiting period - here are my first four images.
1. LEAVES: working around depth-of-field play.
3. FIELD OF YELLOW: We walk past this field daily to go to the bus stop (yet another story involving our walking to/from the bus @ 3/10ths of a mile each direction, which equals out to me actually getting a bit of a mile of walking in per day whether I want to or not really). I am so chicken though, I REALLY want to take pics of the kids in this field, but I don't actually want to have to WALK IN THERE BECAUSE NATURE IS HIDING!!!
#4 CREEEEEPY: and artsy ALL AT THE SAME TIME. This thing intrigued me and freaked me the hell out all at the same time. VERY AWESOME dots of water on the web though. it's really hard to take pics and watch the manual settings when you're trying to also pay attention to WHERE the spider is while you're fiddling with settings/such. UGH.
AND your bonus story is actually the following conversation between Steve and I maybe 2-3 fridays ago. I thought it relevant to the #4 picture:
Me: THE BIGGEST SPIDER IN THE FUCKING WORLD IS IN THE HOUSE. AND NOW i CAN'T FIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIND IT. I.AM.LEAVING.
Me: THAT IS NOT NOT NOT NOT FUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNY
S: Lol lol lol what room?
Did you scream?
Me: OUR PLAY ROOM???? MOTHERFUCKER. I didnt scream... Yelled a tribal scream and turned on the vacuum....which I THINK IT WAS TOO BIG TO FIT INTO...but it was gone...OH.MY.GOD.
S: Was it black with lightening bolts on its back?
Me: IT HAIR FUCKING HAIR.
IT CAN EAT SMALL ANIMALS AND PERHAPS CHILDREN
S: Lol snort lol choke
Me: (((sent a picture of the worthless cat holding up his paw and staring at me)))
TOLD DRAGON....HE HAS A PAW IN THE AIR. I TOLD HIM TO FIND A WEAPON

Me: Of WHAT??????????
S: The spider of course
Me: Fuck that shit Mr V. If I could fucking FIND IT I WOULD KILL IT M.YSELF. i am freaking out because it's as big as a furrry baby hippo AND I CANT FIND IT
S: Snort. Go get the spider spray from the mud room and hit the last spot/area you spotted it Lol lol lol ...tears Mrs V
Me: WHAAAAAAAATEVER. I will bet it climbed into the heater thing because IT LITERALLY HAD TO DUCK TO RUN UNDER IT AGAINST THE WALL...
S: Sure it wasn't a mouse?
Spray the heater all the way across.
Me: IT HAD EIGHT DISBUSTING LEGS STEVER. MICE DON'T HAVE EITHER LEGS
S: Snort...did you spray braveheart
S: Lol i snorted and hurt myself
Me: (((note to self, kill him with spider spray if he makes another 'city girl' comment)))
The spider was big. Huge.
at least the size of a baby rhino or hippo, or whatever...but IT WAS HUGE. and HAIRY. I think it was a wolf spider, which the internet says is "poisonous"??? REALLLY??? *grumble* make fun of me again...ugh.
