A New Chapter


Well, school is out now.  For the first time since our marriage we can spend time together every evening without worrying about homework.  It's great that we have time to watch more movies and relive our favorite parts of Season 2 of The Office (it's the only season we have on DVD).  Karen has a new job now and we are both excited about that because she doesn't dread going to work every day.  Karen also has the wonderful benefit of an hour long lunch break.  That's a luxury that I've never been able to appreciate and I'm a little jealous.  Karen takes 10 minutes to eat and the rest of the time she watches episodes of The Office.  It is nice that I can pick her up on my days off and spend a little bit of time together in the middle of the day.  I've become a lot more helpful around the house now that I have days off.  I've been able to take up the laundry and grocery shopping and the occasional cleaning/organizing project in our small apartment.  It's great that I can help out now.  I also really love the time off to work on my photography.  I'm trying to keep myself busy and productive on something while Payless isn't using my time.  If anyone reading this needs pictures taken for anything from weddings to eBay auction pictures to sports to portraits, I'm your guy.  It's great to be taking pictures again.  I love exercising that part of my creative mind again.  It invites my OCD tendencies come out and play.  I'm very particular with my details and that's very beneficial with photography.  I'll let you see some of the pictures I've been working with lately.  I'm very excited about my new camera and lens because of the great detail I can capture in my pictures now.  The first picture is the whole thing and the second one is a close-up of the detail.  The color and detail isn't the same after I posted the pictures but you get the idea.

Karen I think I am going to start picturing you as my sole reader!

I have taken inspiration from your banner and am creating a new homepage for mine and Jeff's pages.

Beautiful photos Adam!

Woah, Adam, those photos are impressive!! If we're able to bring Finn home for the summer, I'd love for you to get a couple good shots of him. If you have time and stuff.
