Day 257: Theater/Heather

This is the marquee from a theater in SE Portland that was purchased a few years ago by the Flying Pie Pizza Company and renovated. It's a cute little theater. I saw a movie here tonight for the first time with one of my Meetup groups. We were divided between those that saw "The Social Network" and those of us who saw "127 Hours."

Day 256: Out and About/Heather

We had a pretty nasty storm blow through here today so when it was over, I decided to go look for damage. I was opening the folder of pictures to view them when the storm hit and the power flickered. When I got home from taking pictures I was quite dismayed to see that the memory card was apparently corrupted when the power flickered. This is the only good picture I got; the rest are unrecognizable or have heavy lines going through them. Luckily, it seems I only lost a few of the 700+ pictures that were already on the card!

This was taken at the business park about a mile from my house.

Day 252: Starts with "W"/Heather

This is the most my weights have been used for in ages. Now that my back room is cleaned out again and I can get to them, I should probably start using them for their intended purpose.

Day 250: Goodwill/Heather

I spent today cleaning out/reclaiming my back bedroom which had become a storage unit as opposed to my exercise room. In the process, I came across several things I decided to donate to Goodwill.

Day 249: Shallow Depth of Field/Heather

Shallow Depth of Field: bring the main subject into focus with the background blurred. This is best achieved using the aperture setting. This is a shot of my Japanese Maple.

Day 248: Growth/Heather

I should probably clean out the pantry more often. At least they weren't all mushy and watery yet!

Day 247: Minute/Heather

Tonight, I went to my friend's version of the TV show "Minute to Win It." I managed to get a shot of him holding the "stop watch" (aka my cell phone) during one of the challenges. Judging from the pictures around it, it was the challenge of separating Skittles by color and putting them in cups.

Day 245: In the Fridge/Heather

I seem to have a lot more beverages than food in my fridge at any given time. My newest obsession in the olive bar at Fred Meyer so I tend to have those to go with my drinks.

Day 244: In the Gutter/Heather

I was surprised to actually get a couple of shots for this theme that I thought were really cool. It just goes to show that my friend was right when he said anything can make an interesting photo if shot right.
