Life in the big city.
Last night Patrick and I went into town (Madison) to watch the Badgers play the Spartans. The traffic was horrendous. Everything else about the night was great! But I tell you. City traffic jams just take the fun out of things. It makes me never want to go down there again.
We do have the option of taking a bus...but the bus I saw, that was loading fans at a bar on Regent was behind us and we were five minutes late. A lot of people were late. Maybe other people don't mind. But I do think that is the first time I have ever been late to a game. In my life.
And well. I survived.
Breathe in. Breathe out.
We are accustomed to leaving early. We are pros at that.
Thank you Joe for the tickets!
Great seats! Fun game!
Here is a photography pointer for shooting at an indoor sport like this with crazy light differences.
Because of the dark all around the camera wants to balance the light so most times I see very very bright floors in basketball pictures. I wanted my basketball floor to look right so here is what you do;
tap your screen on the basketball court. This will tell your camera in your phone to focus and adjust the light where you have tapped. You are overriding the auto in your camera by doing this.
Try it with your phone camera.
Look at the bench. Do you think there are enough coaches/staff?
Rosa, I looked for your hubby but did not spot him :o)
Back to the quiet life.
We went to see The Silver Linings Playbook. Did I tell you that?
It's very good. I'd like to see it again.
It's rated R. So beware.
Photography tip two.
Make them spit out their gum.
She leans. She is a leaner.
We like it.
Leaning trumps nipping. For sure.
Encourage one another,
