Hello all. Well, what a FUN weekend I had. Totally the kind of fun weekend I used to have all the time about 10 years ago but one day was enough to make me realize that one day was all I could take for a while. Ahem.
Yesterday I went wine-tasting in Amador County on a limo-bus, for a good friends' birthday. It was a day with nine fun-starved parents on a black leather-seated bus with champagne, vodka, and wine, heading from one winery to the other, and with 90s pop and hip-hop music vibrating the roof. The good news is that nobody puked (especially since there was a $750 incidental charge for vomit on the carpet) the bad news is that we all had to somehow return to our lives as parents at the end of the festivities.
In all, I took 657 photos on my camera. However, a good 50% of those were taken on a moving, bouncy bus, after several drinks, so my guess is that only 100 will make it out of the review phase alive. Then there are the ones where I was a little too tipsy to remember to change my camera settings as I went from different lighting situations, so I'm not guaranteeing much in the way of artistic prowess on this round. In fact, if I have 100 that were in focus, I might just consider this little photo expedition a success. Ahem.
Anyways, it's going to take quite some time to go through all the photos, immediately discard the bad ones and then sort through the rest for the true keepers. In the meantime, I thought it might be fun to offer ya'll a sneak peak at the craziness with some completely un-edited shots I grabbed purely based upon a thumbnail preview that made me laugh out loud...
