A quick round-up of marginally interesting things going in.

1. We've moved Lego from Fantasy Lane Farm to Hopewell Creek Stables. Fantasy Lane was great, but it was a bit of a hike for us to get there and they had a habit of changing the feed without telling us. That said - it was good place for Lego and a great place for photos. Hopefully I can keep in contact with those from Fantasy Lane - a couple of them expressed interest in a photo shoot. Here is a flickr set of my photos from Fantasy Lane.

Hopewell Creek is right beside Maryhill golf course (for those of you who know the area) and it's a 5 minute detour from the route Tara makes to and from school. As long as they take good care of Lego, I'm sure we'll be more than happy to have him there (plus I get to go golfing more often now :) )

2. I made a really rockin' cream of celery and scapes (garlic tops) soup the other night. It turned out really well and I got to use my new immersion blender (which made it oh-so-smooth). If anyone wants me to try and remember how I made it, let me know in the comments and I'll post the recipe.

3. If any of you out there want to feel manly - go find yourself a tree and cut down. I did this past week and it felt good.

4. I'm wearing contacts now, at least when I'm not at work. Taking photos is a lot easier when I can mash the camera right up to my face. I also enjoy wearing sun glasses. This is a poor attempt at a contact self-portrait

I think that's about it

The macro shot is well cropped; it's bold image without being too... well, alien. I sometimes find that eyeball shots can be discomforting because of the disassociation with the rest of the face, but the detail in the iris is the first thing that grabs my attention. But perhaps you need more sleep... your eyes are bloodshot. :P

The eye photo is from the first day I had my contacts. I was bloodshot because I kept poking my eye with my finger :)
