Three of the kids were playing in the sandbox and backyard tent when we saw and heard this blimp. They were really excited. It was going back and forth and all around. I had seen it earlier on Polaris Parkway but thought it was a tethered balloon for a used car place or something like that.
I shot the first with the phone and the second with the Canon 5D. I think the phone pic looks pretty good. But the larger file could withstand a crop to read the blimp’s lettering which we could not with our eye.
So it’s beer, day two!

Practice stop-motion shots. Anticipate the action.
Try to feel the timing.
Press the shutter at the right time, once, instead of fifty times. Hopeful.
Sometimes the stop-motion looks frozen to me, perhaps too still. Wonder if it needs a little blur to show the movement.
As you read about my shooting where you are, these are examples of how you can be on vacation and work on your skills, simultaneously.
Have fun doing it, too!

And jumping off the board into the pool. Looks like a cut-and-paste figure.
My DIL and I went to lunch while the kids were at two different day camps today.
I photographed the food with my iPhone. Used available light.
We started with these delicious Parmesan Crusted Baked Onions. So soft and the tang and salt of the Parmesan offset the sweetness.
Regular white onions. I asked. Baked four times.
Erika was able to order from their gluten free menu. I ate the Goat Cheese Ravioli with Cabbage, Pancetta and Mushrooms on top.
On the right is the Chopped House Salad.
Oh yes, the restaurant? Marcella’s in Polaris. They have another location in Short North.
