A Blue Floral for a Blue Day

Today has been so dreary! Its been threatening to rain, humid and chilly...which sounds all together odd for a Florida girl...I thought muggy went with hot exclusively:) So I was lazy and spent the day indoors, watching a French movie about Marcel Proust and Synecdoche, New York and then reading some more of Why Didn't They Ask Evans? an Agatha Christie novel (have I mentioned yet how much I love her books?) I have to say, the latter film didn't help to lift my spirits at all...watching an aging Philip Seymour Hoffman cry repeatedly was not just what the doctor ordered today. I think I should probably give it another try some other time.

So with the hours in the day waning, I decided to take a stab at night photography in the back yard. These aren't the best pics; I'm a little out of practice and seriously need to break out the remote control for my camera. I took a photography class two years ago in which I actually learned how to use my film camera's manual functions, but have forgotten a lot of it. I'll have to read up in the manual and my books this weekend and practice...we're heading out of town after work tomorrow and will be gone until Sunday night. I'll post more when we get back!
