Sunny, but Cold!

FIrst of all, thank you all so much for your comments, favs and follows from my "Excited Teddy!!" photo.

I've seen so many crystal sphere photos here on 365, I wanted to try it! I looked and looked for one that wasn't too big and heavy, even online. Yesterday, when I was in a specialty game store buying a gift for my father, I happened to notice some *extremely* large (almost clear) marbles in various colors! It was exactly the size I was looking for. This particular one only has a couple of bubbles and was inexpensive, so I thought I would give it a go. It's not what I was looking for, but it works. For now.

This is my *very* first glass sphere shot. I took three and liked this one best!

I was feeling better from this absolutely miserable cold, but after two days of feeling good, a monster sinus infection set in and I feel just horrible again. I started antibiotics tonight (I do NOT like taking them!), but hopefully I'll feel more normal again, tomorrow!
I want one of those too, love it, great stuff.

Sorry to hear, will be praying for your quick healing. Get well real soon, Laura. By the way, this is a very interesting shot!

@vorka -- It really is! I'm so glad I didn't just purchase on a whim....now I know what I want and will purchase it, when I see it for a decent price. I'm shopping for a macro lens tomorrow and having my Canon Rebel XT cleaned up. I'm excited to start using it again, when it's ready!
@blcpadilla -- Thank you Blessie - and prayers are always appreciated!

@monika64 -- Awesome! what size did you order?
@kimfaria -- Thank you!
@sgoodin1 -- Thanks Sara, I figured a couple bubbles may lend interest. vs a huge distraction (some just had way too many bubbles!)
@susieb -- Thanks, Susie, I sure hope I feel better soon, too....not yet this morning though....
@elizabeth264 -- Thanks! I'm sorry you're sick, too. I can't believe how dragged down I've been for weeks now...ick, ugh, yuck.
PS, I'm repainting my nails soon (I need a lighter more Spring-like color and was going today, but don't feel up to it!)

@debsphotos @bkbinthecity @judithg -- Thank you. I have been sick and not taken the energy to photograph much, nor upload or process anything. I haven't even done many of the challenges I had planned on doing this week. I did process this one for one challenge. http://365project.org/mainebrighteyes/365/2011-03-09 (I changed the year, so I could join the challenge.)

@paintdipper -- Junan, thank you! this is actually a glass marble....I'm still looking for a crystal clear ball. I AM feeling MUCH better, as of late this afternoon. The antibiotics are working their magic!!

Great find and a lovely first shot. Hope you feel better soon!

Beautiful shot, Laura. I'm still trying to figure out how these things work and your photo gave me the best clue. It's upside down and backwards, right? I'm glad you are feeling better.

Literally, as soon as I was feeling pretty normal (it's all relative, haha!) I got a major issue with my computer....haven't been able to use it for a week! All I do now is via my phone...and I can't load photo's! :(

@lauriehiggins @hown @bobbyj -- thank you! I keep coming to the site via my phone, but am frustrated I haven't been loading photos. Several things in life have gotten in the way! :(

I will get the computer thing figured out, as soon as these other more serious things are leveled off...
posted March 24th, 2012
