Well, more fun with my Camera+ app. The picture above was taken with the app's self-timer (you can see the table in the foreground, where I set the phone on its edge) on a day with clouds and sun. We were all in shadow, so I used the "Clarify" filter along with the HDR, and look what happened. You can see all of our faces, but the sky looks a bit cartoonish, although I sort of like the effect. It was taken on Sunday at Skydive Snohomish, where I did more sitting around than actual skydiving. We made two jumps and then the clouds really moved in, so I went home about 3:00pm, feeling pretty good about the day. Since I had a cold last weekend and this past Saturday was almost completely clouded over, I felt fortunate to have the chance to play in the sky with my friends.
They have more than 50 years of sobriety between them
These tandem skydivers were also on the same airplane we took up for our second jump. They were bouncing off the walls, all friends who came to celebrate being together as Friends of Bill. I told them I would write about them today in my blog, so hopefully they will see this post. The lady in the middle was the instigator and was more than willing to talk about their adventure. I thought she was in her late forties, but she's actually 61! They all had the time of their lives, and I was so glad to have been there to see them in the plane and jump out before them.
What's my favorite color?
I asked Cindy to take a picture of me with my cell phone while I was all dressed up for the skydive. When I saw it, I decided to share it with you, my non-skydiving friends. You know, you might one day decide to make the leap, and if you do it at Skydive Snohomish, let me know and I'll be there! There's nothing quite like it.
