Catching up with the Times

I've been dreaming of it for months. It kind of consumes my thinking. I have thoroughly convinced myself that I can't LIVE without it. Almost any situation that I put myself in the answer is, "there is an App for that!"

Yes, I REALLY want an IPhone. Somehow I just can't pull the trigger on one of those massive phone plans though. You see, I'm old fashioned, I still use the most basic old cell phone possible. I'm still on the same plan we originally signed up for 5 years ago. Heck, I don't even have a camera phone in it. You'd think that I would at least have that covered. :)

This summer I've been having a very hard time getting these blogs up. I would love to post a picture almost everyday, or at least some thoughts everyday. Somehow whenever I sit down in front of my computer, I always tell myself that there is all this important editing that needs to be done for my clients. The blog can wait!

For the next 10 days, and the second week in the last three, I'm going to be in an area where there is no Internet. All though, I have heard suspicious rumors that I MIGHT be able to pick up a random wireless signal. That has yet to be confirmed... I have a TON of pictures that I want to put up on here. I'm convinced that it is going to happen the week I come home. All next week, when I have the time, but not the Internet, I'm going to be thinking. I have a cell phone signal. I KNOW, there's App for blog writing!

My kind of work...

I've been absent again. This time I have a great reason! I spent a week at Brookside Resort. It was great to be outdoors for a whole week just to be concentrating on photography. Let me tell you, photographing resorts is a gig I want to do a LOT more often!

This place was great. I have to say that it is probably the quintessential family resort in MN. The tradition that this resort has is great. They've been in business for 30+ years and the whole time I was there I every guest had a story of coming there since childhood and are now bringing their own children. Spending a whole week there made me want to have kids just to bring them there!

I'm going to upload a bunch of pictures that I shot for them later on, but for now you are just getting one. This one is all about the perks of the visit. Of course, I had to take a round after Andrea did, no pictures of me though! I don't have half the talent for it she does and even that may be stretching it.

All I can say, is that I want to go back.

Watch your fingers!!

For all of you out there playing with explosives.... have fun! I wish I could be right there with you blowing up stuff! Unfortunately here in MN, we aren't allowed to do anything fun. Something about safety and forest fires.....
