Splendificacious

I can’t stop looking at my forty & fabulous photographs. Does that make me vain? I hope not! I keep looking at them as I’m definitely seeing myself in a new light. People have always told me I was pretty/attractive and now I’m finally seeing it. It’s taken me forty years, but better late than never. Anyway, below is another favorite. Most who have viewed the album think it’s the money shot. One (male) friend called it spendificacious! Not a real word — but him writing it, made me smile. Related posts: Forty & Fabulous

Case in point, we hear today of another rouge trader: […]

Then this morning (around 7am), on my first day back out walking, I saw the most amazing sight. Specifically, a full moon with blazing full sun off in the distance. I thought it was most unusual but apparently its a completely normal occurrence. Apparently two things contribute to seeing a full moon during daylight: “first, it is bright enough that its light penetrates the scattered blue light of the sky. If you’re […]

Forty & Fabulous

Since I turned forty some 13 months ago, I planned to do a photo shoot as years from now I want to be able to look on my current fabulousness (lol!). Thus, I’ve been looking around for a photographer/photo studio. I wanted to find one that took beautiful photographs of celebrities and real world people. I also wanted to find one that was reasonably priced and wasn’t going to charge an arm and a leg to get the copyright and all photographs from the session on a disk. As luck would have it, I came across such a studio a […]
