Love Letters

Tuesday, February 9th, 2016

You may be getting a tax refund in the near future and you should try to spend it sensibly, not on something frivolous like another babydoll nightie. Unless that babydoll is the Love Letters Babydoll from Dottie’s Delights.

Description: “This little darling is as sheer as it comes, available in either powder pink or black, made of the same authentic wispy nylon as the vintage nightgowns of the 1960’s. Very short, flirty length gathered from the neckline with a tiny satin ribbon and bow stitched at center.

Little cloud tuffs at the shoulder that can be made to stick upright or down depending on the look you desire. My favorite feature is the ruched circle pouch pocket at the hip, also adorned with the satin ribbon. The perfect size to store all of your naughty and nice items – from lipstick to cell phones to condoms.”

OK, lets recap: a beautiful sheer nightie, available in powder pink or black, made of wispy nylon like the ones you may have worn in the 60’s, and a pocket for your lipstick and cell phone. Well if that isn’t sensible I don’t know what is. Go for it!

Note: panties, manicure, pedicure, heels, false eyelashes, wig, lipstick, cell phone and condoms not included.

James and the Giant Lipstick

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

I’d like to tell you a true story about my friend James. This is not a fairy tale but James is indeed a fairy.

He sent me a picture of a dress he found online with the model holding what looks like a giant lipstick, and asked if I had any idea where to buy it. A quick search showed that its not actually giant but it is a rather large red lipstick purse from Pinup Girl. I’ll give you the link at the end of the post.

This is not really my style, but if you like attention getting accessories it may just be the perfect purse for you. Now I’d like to show you the dress which is also not really my style but very, very cute.

Be aware that this dress will probably not fit most men. Even though it comes in Large and Extra Large you have to be very trim and not too tall. The Extra Large is designed for a 33 inch waist and a 38 bust. So if that’s you and you like this I say go for it. Butt wait-It also comes in black.

If you buy this dress, and its a great deal at less than $50, you have to ask yourself one question. And its not do you feel lucky, although you might very well get lucky if you rock this outfit. You have to ask yourself if you’re prepared for all the attention you’re going to get from the guys.

So you may want to learn this model’s pose and have a line ready when they ask you out. Look straight at the guy, tilt your sunglasses, and say: “You talkin’ to me?” Don’t get all De Niro on him but say it in your sexiest voice, then wait for a response. You should probably practice this at home.

Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Macro Test

Saturday, November 23rd, 2013

Despite what I said I went out and bought a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-RX100 Sunday. It is amazing! Within 3 days I had taken a gorgeous TACK SHARP 5472 x 3648 photo and had it printed out at 10 x 15 inches and framed.

I’ve taken night shots, sunrises, sunsets, and experimented with every one of the many settings, modes and features available. Except Macro because I was under the impression that the Sony RX100 is not very good at that. So I had to see for myself.

As you may or may not know, there is no dedicated Macro focusing mode on the Sony RX100. There is a Macro scene mode and it isn’t very good. But you can shoot great close up shots with any of the Autofocus modes, as well as with any shooting mode. This camera will focus on objects as close as 2 inches.

I did a quick test with my new Sony RX100 using a tripod, a small aperture, low ISO, and a red pepper. I took a group of shots using different settings, and found that using the Autofocus area set to Center worked best.

The full size image has been cropped to 2000 x 1723 and resampled to 72ppi. No sharpening or other adjustments were made in Photoshop.

My best shot was made using f8 1/2 sec ISO 125, Aperture Priority, and Autofocus Area Center.

The original is 5472 x 3648, but how large do you really need pictures of your peppers?

By the way, the base ISO for the Sony RX100 is 125, so using the two lower settings does not improve dynamic range or reduce noise to any real degree.

I also shot a red apple but it wasn’t as pretty as the pepper.

More pictures to come. From what I’ve been hearing it might be a snow scene by Thanksgiving.
