these days i regret my vacation pictures in which all i have to look at are physical scenes and vistas. the few pictures in which i appear are candid shots that somehow got by me. i never thought i looked presentable enough to be photographed--it was either my hair or my clothes...as a result, all i'm left with are albums full of seascapes, mountains, canyons, historic buildings, some with people featured, but not of me. how silly it all seems now....
A long time ago I saw something on TV about taking vacation pix. The person giving the lecture said to make sure to have people in the shots. Just about any scene you want to photograph has been photographed by a pro and you can buy a postcard with a great photo. So, make sure your friends are in your photos. The other thing he mentioned was to make sure your friends are close up in the photo. I.e., if you are taking a photo of the Eiffel Tower and the whole tower shows, have your friends close to you with the tower in the background. If you take a pic of the whole tower with your friends close to it, they will be so small that you probably won't be able to recognize them. Having the Eiffel Tower, or whatever, in the background helps you remember where you were when the photos were taken.

Great advice guys. We did get some good shots earlier, the aformentioned pics had the lighting up my nose and were shot from way too close

I know that kind of photo. I also don't like the ones of me in profile when I'm not smiling. Lot's of bits of my face sag, but it doesn't show as much when I smile.

Shrek does candid shots too and wonders why I'm always frowning. I tell him to not do candid shots and let me at least make sure there's no spinach in my teeth.

Today we are going to see The Hobbit

We are seeing it on the ExtremeScreen, HFR (high frame rate) and in 3D...very much looking forward to it

We have been waiting so long for this movie, having both read the book a few years back, we are looking forward to seeing what they do with it in film

There are a few characters in the film from the LOTR films, which actually were not in the book, but we are thinking they wanted people to see familiar faces

I am going to have a choc top icecream and Steve is having popcorn and because it is such a long film (3 hours) we will take some Mars Pods and some Starbursts too, to see us through

It is going to be a hot day here too, so it will be wonderful in the cinema, not knowing about the heat outside

Going to be a long film, so I am having my last coffee now..dont need toilet breaks throughout the film

I heard about some clueless person on Facebook didn't like The Hobbit because it was "just a rip-off of LOTR." Can you believe it???
