If you come to visit my house and come into my living room/den area, you will notice a toy has the highest honor in my house. Yes, a potatohead named Sammy has the highest honor in my house. Here is the story of how Sammy The Potatohead has the highest honor in my house.
When I about to retire from the Air Force, my guys had a meeting at the local IHop. It was my last staff meeting before my retirement ceremony. Well, Chaplain Sammy Tucker had a bag with a couple of items in it. One item was a pair of Marx Brothers glasses and nose which I was suppose wear and did briefly before the phones came out to get a picture. The next thing he pulled out was the potatohead and presented it to me. He told me that when he looked at my head, I reminded him of Mr. Potatohead. I got a chuckle out of it and told him I would pay him back, which I did (that’s another story for a Throwback Thursday soon). Ever since then, Sammy has had the highest honor in my house and he always will.
This one of the many roses we have in bloom around here. I didn’t see anything walking around that caught my eye but this rose did. I did my normal edit in Lightroom. In Photoshop, I added a diamond texture and used a watercolor filter on it.
I went out yesterday afternoon and saw my picture of the day, a rainbow in the cloud. I grabbed my camera got a couple of shots, ran back inside, grabbed my tripod, set it up, and got the attached timelapse.
I went out this afternoon to get the mail when I saw a rainbow in the cloud. I ran back inside, grabbed my camera and got a couple of shots. I ran back inside, grabbed my tripod and created a timelapse, which I will post tomorrow morning. I did my usual edit in Lightroom. I used a Hue and Saturation adjustment level. I also used two curves adjustment levels. I made a snap shot of all layers and added a dark strokes filter.
I went out last night to get some shots of the moon rise. I was going to take a shot, wait 5 minutes and take another shot for a little bit. Right before I could see the moon over the horizon, I decided to try a timelapse. It’s 15 seconds because I neglected to charge up my battery completely. I’m going to try another one tonight (with a fully charged battery) to make a longer timelapse.
I had a really nice storm come through yesterday so I got a timelapse of it. I was hoping for more but the storm went from going away from me to heading towards me. I had to retreat to my house to get the second part of the timelapse (you will be able to tell).
Today was an outstanding day. The weather has been gorgeous. A bit breezy but still gorgeous. I went walking around to see what I can find for my picture of the day. I got this shot from one of the tree stumps in my next door neighbor’s yard. It’s new growth on the stump. I added a new texture to give it the above effect.
