Ha! Depressingly close to the truth. Last weekend we took in a marvelous outdoor car show. This weekend - stinking hot, wildly windy - not fit to do anything much but stay inside and keep the sunshine out as much as possible. That is my husband and Tisa heading upstairs to where the air-conditioner resides.
The original of this is bright red - the prevailing light was from the red sidelights of my front door. (Skylight and all windows were covered.)

Open in Picasa.

I was the 9 vote on this image. Never got around to commenting, so...

I really like the bold choices here. Not only the B&W conversion, but the impenetrable shadows, the aggressive vignette, the grain, and the motion blur. I particularly like 21.gif posthumous's comment alluding to Picasso. Bravo!

A worthwhile pastime - it's representative of the ups & downs of life. ;-)

My brain is filling in the story on this. You were sick and running upstairs to the bathroom all weekend.

I quite like this. I find it very original! Also, you must've gone up and down those steps so many times before catching this at just the right time!

That's a new hobby I've not heard of. I like the gray and the grain.
