Today I skipped school. I felt bad, but it felt gooood. I have three absences allowed in each class, so now I'm on two (the first one was when we were in San Francisco), which is far from ideal, but it's okay. I always do this - miss classes strategically - so by the end of the semester, I HAVE TO GO TO CLASS NO MATTER WHAT.
Anyway, I realized this afternoon that Tuesday is the day Patty can't come home during lunch to let the dogs out. Not usually a problem since I stop by between classes. But since I was skipping... Well, I had to go to Boca today anyway. But I took Maggie with me and she had fun wrestling with Buddy and running at full speed in circles in Patty's yard.
I've been keeping my camera with me, ever since I got the smaller camera bag that fits in my purse. It's a heavy addition to an already heavy bag, but it's well worth it. I got some really cute pictures, including this one. Buddy really is a cutie, isn't he?
And I swear, I'm always learning when it comes to photography. I did something wrong with this picture... I didn't meter for the dog; I metered for the whole area. So Buddy is too light. Thankfully I realized it while shooting and changed the exposure compensation, but would've been better off just doing the center-weighted metering.
Boring you yet? Hehe. I guess it's just nice that I'm actually spending time taking pictures again, and thereby learning. I end up deleting most of what I take, but sometimes I get a keeper and that makes me happy. :)
