Foggy Saturday, with Graves

Standard

I have so much crap to post, and have had so little motivation to do so! It’s sad because I know you will love that one pic of the cats being cute, but since when am I happy putting a post up with just one pic? Neverrrrr. So instead I goof off on FB or read everyone else’s blogs (and I’m massively behind on that, too).

I have to get these up here, as there are some pretty amazing pics if I say so meself.

Backstory; iDJ and I had just eaten one of his amazing weekend breakfasts and were finishing off the rest of the episode of Justified, or Marvel Agents of SHEILD, or maybe one of the old Voyager episodes… if you think I’m bad at reading blogs, imagine how much backlog of awesome TV I still have to watch. I don’t even have Grim yet.

Anyhoo. I glanced out the window at our mountain, and I see something awesome.

The fog bank had rolled over the top of our rather short mountain and had thinned out once over the top. I’d never seen this weird weather before in the nearly nine years we’ve lived in this house.

Hubby paused the TV (what, you think I get to touch the remote?), leapt up, and said we had to go get photos right now now now before it was too late!!!

So in pyjamas and steel-toe work boots, I gathered up my iPhone and his expensive camera and he drove like a madman to the parish cemetery – always the best spot for a view of the mountain.

I acted as a bad roadie for his expensive cam (the lenses had fingerprints on them! And no soft lens wipe in his massive case! Panic panic panic). But while he was being all professional I whipped out my iPhone and turned on my favourite B&W Hipstamatic setting, and took the three B&W pics above. Then the damn phone decided to choke and died, and once I had convinced it that yes, it did have battery life left, I got the colour one with the regular iPhone 4 cam.

This is the only photo iDJ took that he deemed worthy. Yeah, it’s awesome. But I’m so fond of mine that I actually signed up and submitted one to the National Geographic ‘your shot.’ Guess which one?
