Do you ever leave the house thinking "I probably should take a camera with me," but then you just leave that camera right where it is? That's what I did today. ...grumble, grumble....
M and I decided to give a brand spanking new bike trail a try. A path alongside the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, that spans the Potomac from Virginia into Maryland, had its grand opening yesterday, so we couldn't resist checking it out today. It was quite scenic just from the riverview perspective, but there were lovely sculptural features at the end. I so regretted that I left the camera behind. If you're local, you should hike or bike the bridge at least once.
We did 19 miles today and close to 30 yesterday. Since I haven't been on the bike that much lately, it was taxing; both on my "parts" and my energy level.
I finished up a scherenschnitte snip for my friend, Celita, in Italy. We are snipping buddies and trade snips every few months. We started out doing similar pieces; mostly depicting scenes of life. I've moved to 3D pieces and she has moved to snips that resemble stained glass. It'll be fun to see what arrives in the mail from her.
I'm also trying to figure out how to photograph my work. My photographic skills run at only a slightly higher level than trying to not cut off heads and feet. Cindy, a blogger friend with whom I recently sent a snip, photographed my work in a way that knocked me out. My work looks so much better in her photo. So, I've tried some different backgrounds, but still my work doesn't show as well as in her photo. Suggestions would be highly appreciated.
