Caught this picture of a woman waiting for her husband. She'd just had a slice of pizza. He had nothing. They both had tickets to the movies.
The Thai restaurant behind her? Not so good. (My litmus test for good Thai? Their chicken satay and their pad thai have to be outstanding. In the case of this restaurant, horrible.)
In addition to my newest gadget being a really cool printer, it's also a really cool scanner. I scanned in a few photos I have in some albums lying around the house. The photo above was shot with a Minolta Maxxum 7000 in 1986 or thereabouts. From the front yard of the townhouse my family lived in in Orem, Utah, this was the view: Mount Timpanogos. I managed to capture the sunset on the clouds as the moon was rising.
Finally, a note regarding yesterday's entry and the pictures of the Our Lady of Hope Chapel in the Basilica of the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception. Bob and Dolores Hope donated the money to the Catholic Church for the construction of the chapel. The chapel commemorates the appearance of Mary in Pontmain, France, in 1871. Yesterday's entry should have included this link about the chapel. The name of the chapel commemorates the events in Pontmain and not the name of the donor.
