Busy Weekend at Home

Saturday we went out to wander around downtown Evansville a bit. I was hoping for a little bit of goings-on but the place was nearly deserted. A couple of restaurants where open but that was about it. With the nearby Frog Follies going on I figured and old car or two might show up, but no such luck. It’s not true that they roll up the sidewalks after 5 PM, it just looks like it. Took some pictures of the architecture, will post a few when I get the film developed. Yes, I still shoot film!

Sunday it was off to a friends house to chow down on my belated birthday meal of fried chicken, macaroni and cheese and an excellent butternut squash casserole. It was all good and mighty tasty. Loved hanging out with my wife, Terry, and our friends and their sweet, noisy kids. Can’t wait to do it again, but next time I come home I think Terry and I will just spend the weekend at home, snuggling. Come Sunday night, I was completely worn out.

Here’s a picture or two I uploaded to Flickr. I’ve been on a kick doing 3D pictures using the old Kodak digital camera, the “cha-cha” method (whick involves taking two separate pics, shift your weight and viewpoint between them) and a piece of software called StereoPhoto Maker and the instructions here: http://www.neilcreek.com/blog/2008/03/21/how-to-take-3d-photos/.  My technique needs work and the results are a bit spotty but I’ll work on it.

This is viewed cross-eyed for those who can do it. Suprisingly, I ran into quite a few people who can’t.
