I'm starting to get super excited about camp this summer. But when am I not excited about camp, really?
Anyway, who wants to see some cool pictures? I perused The Boston Globe's 2010 in photos earlier, and some of them really struck me. All are worth seeing (though, I will admit that I skipped over the viewer-discretion-advised ones--I have a small stomach), but here are a handful of my favorites:
|A vigil for the late president of Poland.|
|A boy having fun in the rain in Cuba.|
|I guess gold miners don't mind being covered with the stuff they dig up. |
In fact, this guy looks right jolly about it. :)
|Some things are the same on every continent.|
Kids are adorable.
|I love the falling olives. Makes me think of Greece.|
|Three sisters showing a photo of their Christian mother,|
who was sentenced to death for her beliefs.
|On a lighter note, I want to go to this art exhibit.|
|Last but not least: safe and sound! |
[For all the terrible things that happened in 2010,
wasn't it a thrill to have something to celebrate?]
And that's all I have to say about that.
In other news, I also discovered a neat-looking program called Blurb that helps you make your own books (like Mac photo books, but it doesn't have to be just for photos). I can see myself wasting a lot of time and money here. Wouldn't it be fun to take a bunch of neat pictures and turn them into a fairy tale book or something? I see some very interesting Christmas presents in my loved one's futures.
Oh my gosh, I can't think about it too much or I'll get overly excited and not to ANYTHING today.
Oh, and one more thing. We went skiing in the backyard yesterday. I should have taken pictures. Instead, here's a picture that shows up in Google image search under the words "skiing in the backyard."
