I mentioned last week that I was going to probably inundate you with photos I removed from my SD card before I used it in my new camera. Well, today is no different. However, I would like to begin by saying a few words about WORD VERIFICATION. Even if you don't link to T today, I try to visit, at least if you leave a comment. However, you have NO idea how long it takes to leave those silly word verifications. They take time I don't have, especially since I have such a slow internet connection. Unlike most people, my ISP is cheap and slow. Many times I must plug those numbers or letters in several times before I get it right. And the lag time, in addition to the frustration I get when blogger tells me I haven't done it right, makes me pretty miserable. So, if you can't trust people to leave you wonderful comments, here are a few things I would like to suggest:
1) Remove "anonymous" from your choices of how people can leave comments. That will get rid of most of the spam.
2) Use comment moderation, where you, the blog owner must approve the message before it is shown
3) NEVER use comment moderation AND word verification. You must approve the message, why put anyone through that added annoyance?
Thanks for understanding and changing your blog comments if you are one of those offenders.
Now let's start the party
Back in mid-December, my friend Sally took me to lunch at Red Lobster.
These photos were taken with my first Nikon camera, so I was snapping photos of anything and everything.
I didn't wait for our server to bring our drinks when I started snapping photos of my surroundings. From flags on the wall to the menus to the decorations to watching the wait staff
and customers I simply could NOT keep out of the photos as I try to do most days, this was a photographer's dream.
One thing about Red Lobster, at least the one in my town,
they always have the date on their menu, as well as the name of their "grill master." If memory serves me, I think Sally had the salmon, while I had shrimp scampi with wild rice. Mine was delicious, although as soon as our meal came, I completely forgot to take photos. I didn't even get a photo of my drink, although I captured a few on others' tables. That was the problem (and possibly a blessing) with that other camera. It was lightweight and easily tucked away in my purse. My second Nikon is big, clunky, heavy, and doesn't fit in my purse or pocket.
Of course, after we ate, I remembered to take a few photos of my surroundings. I'm sure all
Red Lobsters look the same, or similar, but this is the only one I've ever been to.
So plant your flag, show your colors, share your drink, or maybe art. Whatever floats your boat (pun intended). Please link to your direct post below, though. That way we can all share in the fun of the day.
