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.


Playing with Composition

I'm trying to be more cognizant of backgrounds. Even stuff that's supposed to be there (like leaves) can detract, it seems. Blurring it out isn't always an option (although I suppose with editing/post-processing/whatever you want to call it, it could be) so it seems like a good idea to compose well in camera when possible.

I like the red in this, but wish it went higher up into the picture. Since it's a counter top and not a wall, that's not likely, though, unless I tip the flower pot on its side ;-)
