my first real scanned photo! taking the money i was given for a photo (amazing. really.) i bought a printer, scanner, copier, it even makes photos. my family said "could you have chosen a bigger one?" it didn't look so big in the store (next to the others) but now that it's home sitting here next to my small white laptop, it's big.
but, it works! i've figured out most of it, i'm proud to say, without the assistance of my most helpful sons. maybe they can help me with the wireless part though, that is completely baffling to me. but for now, i love this piece of electronic equipment. and that i've done most of the set up on my own.
i chose this photo to scan because i've been sitting here listening to the surf all morning (and all last night too) it's winter here, and we've got a swell. this photo was taken a few years ago, by me, of my husband. he is a good surfer, once upon a time a competitive one too. he traveled around the world competing. did i mention i love this sport and think the smell of wetsuit and salt water the sexiest smell on earth? i tell my husband this all the time when he's got that great smell, and he laughs.
i love when there is surf, even though i don't anymore (i grew up surfing, but raising children got in the way, here is one of my last attempts), i love the energy in the air. the way all talk is of surf and wave size and wind and tide all those conditions needed for an epic session. in our town, even some businesses close up shop to go surfing.
or some even make a living thanks to the surf. here is a magazine Chuck edits. please click on it if you are interested in reading about more surfing or seeing some fantastic photos. and now i really have to go get some more current photos of my own. the waves are calling.
p.s. thank you times a thousand for your kind words and thoughts and congrats on my previous post, my appreciation runs deeper than the deepest of deep oceans.
