Something Pithy Here

"Begin at the beginning, and go on till you come to the end: then stop." -- The King of Hearts

I'm an adopted Texan. As they say, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could!" I post pictures and opinions as suits my mood, mostly because I can. Hooray Internet! 

So far I have three blogs here. By the Way is the oldest. I started it in 2003. I lost a couple of years to Vox because I was too lazy to bother to export when they shut down. I consider it an exercise in accepting impermanence. When I followed my husband to Singapore for his first expat assignment, I started (T)expatriate: A Southern Girl in Singapore. That covers 2010 and 2011, give or take. Next came Oslo, and (T)expat 2: Norwegian Boogaloo,  in 2012. Now I'm back home, and back on By the Way.

Pix live on Flickr. I toss links out on Twitter when I feel like it. I'm still not sure what to do with G+ but I kinda like it.


Week 2

Our week 2 photos are up! Week 2 was "Herbs and Spices." Next week is "Chess." I have a leftover idea for that, but it was all based on drawings--I'll have to figure out how to incorporate a photo....

I'm a little bit surprised at how much fun I'm having with this project. I find myself thinking about it off and on all week, coming up with ideas, imagining effects (most of which I can't pull off once I sit down with PhotoShop, but that's ok) and wondering what Louise will come up with. I keep thinking that at some point we're going to end up with similar images, but based on the first two weeks, maybe not!

I took some time today to make us each a (small) set of postcards and trading cards from our Week 1 images. I think it would be fun to do this each week. I like seeing the images in different sizes and in duplicate.
