In case you missed it…

Buried at the bottom of my trip report on the last visit to Valle Crucis was a bunch of pictures we took on the last night.  Fun with glow sticks Papa, Gigi, Sara & Momo lined up on the porch with their glow sticks. Jake & Joey provided sideline art with their glow sticks. I stood in the lawn & set my shutter speed to slooow. I timed it out and gave them a 3 count beat. I’d say “Ready, go. 1,2,3.” During the 3 count they would draw their letters. We had to practice a bit but then we all got really good at it. I’m very pleased with the results! We took a bunch of glow stick pictures and we also played with sparklers. Making shapes with sparklers I know it’s a little tooting of my own horn kind of thing but they are just so fun!

Ridiculous amount of free prints

709cow-postersI love a freebie. I use Artscow to order free prints. They are constantly putting credits for free pictures and other items in my account. If you sign up now with them you will get 1200 free prints. ONE THOUSAND TWO HUNDRED FREE PICTURES. Half 5×7, half 4×6. All you pay is shipping. Now, some people complain about paying shipping. But I say, if all you have to pay is a few $ for HUNDREDS of free prints, then, well, suck it up buddy. I don’t look a gift cow in the mouth, know what I’m sayin?

Things you might want to know about Artscow:

  • They print on Fuji film paper.
  • They ship from Hong Kong.  ( I usually get my photos in a week or less)
  • Their uploading tools are quite basic (especially for an older Mac like mine)
  • Well, I guess that’s it.  I’ve always been happy with their quality.
