72/365

Well, today was the day that I decided to quit my 365. While I was in the shower (where I do all of my best thinking), I realized that I have way to much on my plate and that my 365 was taking up way to much time. I talked it over with my wife and even told Max that I was quitting.

Then around 9pm, I started getting anxious. I had felt at peace with my decision to quit, but then I started having second (and third and fourth) thoughts. Long story short, I've made it too far to quit now and despite all of the challenges, I'm determined to finish this.

It means that I may not be posting my shots as often or visiting everyone's streams as much as I'd like too, but I've made a commitment to finish this. I appreciate all of the support from everyone and look forward to the next 293 days :D

Our son's name is Cooper, so when we saw these Coopers beers, we had to buy a few. They've been sitting on my desk for a few years now and became a last minute subject for my 365.

These buildings are Rancho Cordova, near where I work. I've wanted to take pictures of them for a while because of their bright colors. It would have been cool to have clouds in the sky...

Ultimate Driving Machine

Ultimate Driving Machine

Ever since Adam bought his BMW last year, we've been talking about taking some photos of it. Well, we finally went out and took some shots. I asked Michael Hunter if he'd be interested in editing one of the shots for his PP Friday - his take turned out pretty awesome!

For my shot, I removed the lamp post and buildings and added some nicer green grass. I did a bunch of other edits and this is what I ended up with - I hope Adam likes it ;)

Side note - I just found out that BMW dropped the tagline "Ultimate Driving Machine" back in 2006 - who knew?

Introducing Luke McKinnley Martin!

Our third son (surprise!) was born March 17th at 3:43pm. That's right, we had a little St. Patrick's Day baby :D

Weight: 7lbs 5oz
Length: 20.5in

Labor and deliver was quite a bit different this time around, but everything worked out great and Shannon and Luke are doing well.

I was playing around with some different lighting setups. I thought this backlighting turned out pretty cool.

For some reason, when doing SP's, I always end up with serious look. Probably because I'm thinking too hard about the shot ;)

Nimbus Dam

Nimbus Dam

On my way home from work, I stopped by to take some pictures below Nimbus Dam. To the left, there are some cool green hills with oak trees on them. Perhaps those will make it into my 365 on another day.

The clouds were really neat, so I thought I'd try this in HDR. I wish it wasn't windy and the water would have reflected the dam, oh well ;)

I almost didn't take a picture today, but I managed to get one right before midnight. I was busy working on the new Socialping website and realized at 11:30pm (way past my normal bedtime) that I hadn't taken a picture.

Day 65 I

Day 65 I

65/365

Everyday I drive by this field that is covered with a variety of daisies. I keep wanting to stop, but I'm usually on my way to or from work. This weekend I had a chance to take Cooper out, so we stopped by the field so that I could get some shots.

There were so many neat pictures that I couldn't decide which one to choose for my 365, so I uploaded 2!

Less than 2 weeks before baby #3 is due and the house is bustling in preparation. I think it has thrown our other two off because they can probably sense that things are about to change :D
