Week 11 (March 12th - 18th) | Picture 20

Drugs are good.

When I committed to doing this "Project 52" - I was pretty serious about it. But I almost skipped this week. My little one has been sick for the last week (ear infection, bad cough, and high fever for days) and has passed it onto me. 3 of the last 4 days I have barely been able to get out of bed. I am super thankful for a wonderful husband and mom who have helped fill in around the house to play "Mom" while I have been unable to do so.

I did make it to the doctor on Monday, and I must say that I'm not usually a fan of antibiotics. I think they are over-prescribed and as most of us know, they won't do anything to help a virus. But I was desperate on Monday and was accepting whatever pills the doctor was handing out.


This infection may very well have been bacterial, because within 24 hours of starting the antibiotic I actually felt like I was getting better and now 48 hours later, I am feeling downright decent. For the shape I was in Monday morning, I would have expected to be sick for the entire week.

I still don't feel nearly good enough to craft up some fun OCF or macro project this week. (And when I am feeling good enough - I'm pretty sure my job and chores that have been neglected for the last week will take priority over my hobby.) So, in an attempt to keep up this blog, I am sharing my drugs with you. :)

Camera: Nikon D700
Lens: 105mm f/2.8 macro
Aperture: f/3.5
Shutter Speed: 1/320
ISO: 200
Flash: SB-800 off camera, manual, 1/4th power
Exposure: manual

Nothing exciting. Speedlight was next to the pills (camera right) and bounced 45 degrees off the wall/ceiling. The only benefit to doing the lighting off camera was getting some shadows and depth to the pills. On camera would have made this already boring picture even more boring with flat light.

I do have a fun project in mind . . . hopefully for next week. Stay tuned, I promise to do something interesting again soon.
