I went through AJ’s edits for A Silence Kept Sunday. I took my time. I added stuff, switched things around, deleted some things.
I think I’ve mentioned this before. When you do your final edit, turn it into a PDF. I don’t know why, but this format makes me see things I’d otherwise miss. I caught some really odd stuff in this last go-round.
Am I confident I got it all? Of course not. That would make me perfect, and I’m far from that. But I am sure I got 99%, and that’s about as good as one can get. Also, there is the very real truth that you can go on making changes forever. You have to draw a line and refuse to step over it, otherwise, you’d never publish anything.
Look for it on/around March 1. As I’ve mentioned, that’s also the day I move so things could be in an uproar. Internet companies sometimes pull the plug early. Sometimes, they hook you up late. I might actually be offline for–gasp!–a few hours or even a day or two.
This is why moves are traumatic and I hate them, but I have no choice. Gotta do it!
I packed five boxes of books today (I only have about 48 boxes to go). You know, those old-fashioned things we no longer buy. ;/ Books are always the major part of my move. I have lots, even though I regularly cull those suckers. I’m pretty much down to the ones I want to keep forever. New books go straight to the Kindle; I have no more space for real ones.
The photo below was taken by someone on flickr. I can’t remember the person’s name and I can no longer find this shot. It’s called “Life in the Woods” and was put together from seven different exposures. That’s a lot for an HDR; most are made up of three to five. I love the detail and richness here, and the light is perfect in every respect. The photographer did a fine job with this. Click on it to see it larger.
Enjoy your Monday, everyone. We’re supposed to get snow overnight, so I expect to wake up to the need to shovel.
