hi there, it's been awhile

here are my boys, now 5 years and 14 months old:
and i'm still stalking pretty flowers:
these three pictures were taken with my phone. i do still take pictures with my "real" cameras, but find i have less and less time to upload them. the phone camera is just so easy, and i always have it with me.

i'm going to ride a segway for the first time on sunday. i hope i don't crash! wheeeee!

my boys

i took this picture of erik and finn last night when the sun was setting and the light was beautifully soft. it's my favorite of the two of them together so far ... but i don't have very many because erik really hates to have his picture taken, how sad for his photographer mom!

death of the point and shoot camera

i read an article awhile back about how the digital point and shoot camera will likely fade into extinction over the next several years due to the increasing abundance and quality of mobile phone cameras. i kind of scoffed at that thinking sure, the quality of the photos you get from these phone cameras is getting better, but it's still a long way from being as good as that from my little canon SD790. fast forward about 6 months plus one child, and I find that i'm carrying my camera less and less and taking photos with my phone more and more. i guess with two children now i have enough to remember/carry that the extra item, even though it's so small it fits in my pocket, is nearly always overlooked. in addition to that, i have a few apps for my phone camera that instantly create some really cool effects and can be uploaded directly to facebook or flickr or sent in an email. since i am also rarely on my computer in the evening or on weekends anymore, this has become my primary tool for photo-sharing. so it seems the author of that article was correct: convenience triumphs over quality. plus it would take a good bit of photoshopping to accomplish what my retrocam app does with the push of one button.

this year's carving

i decided to carve the traditional jack-o-lantern this year. i wasn't feeling particularly inspired, but i awoke saturday morning with visions of round, slanty eyes and a dramatic overbite with large fangs in mind, so that's what i went with. it was a great weekend all around, trick-or-treating with erik times two, lots of lab work also. life is busy! and little zanzi has been super active, keeping me company all the while.
