    Today is a big, busy photo day for me.

    First, I have to put in a full day at my real job.

    Then after that I have to rush off and spend an hour shooting two families ... this is my first time ever doing a family photo shoot (I'm volunteering for my son's preschool).

    Then after that, I have about 20 minutes to get to the little gallery where they are showing my photos for two weeks, and help the curator get everything ready. Then at 8 PM they are opening the show and I'll eventually have to get up and say something.

    I think maybe I'll bring my ukulele and sing "Waltzing Matilda" instead.

    Good luck. Stay off the computer and make sure that take time to breathe. Sounds silly but it helps. I make it a point to arrive at a job relaxed, confidant and ready to shoot.

    Remember that idle hands are the devil's playthings. How about an address for your exhibition, I'd like to see your prints.

    Congrats. The address to your exhibition would be nice, I'm 99.9% sure I'm nowhere near enough to check it out, but I'm sure others here would love to.

    Have you been practicing that song? I wouldn't sing it if you're still rusty.

    It's one of the few songs I know I CAN play off the cuff. The other one is "I've been working on the railroad" ... but I don't think it's going to be that kind of crowd. :rofl:
