Shoot & Edit: Good Night (SOOC)

Good Night: DSC-HX1 1/25 f3.2 25.4mm ISO1600
This is my photo for this week's Shoot & Edit challenge. The theme was what means "Good Night" to you. This is a terrible picture. I used the auto mode on the camera and the ISO is very high and so the photo is grainy. But in the interest of working with editing and learning some things I decided to stick with this photo.

I also decided to stick with this photo because of what it represents to me. My guy is away at an Army school. He has been gone for 2 1/2 months and will be gone for at least another 2 months. Every night we talk on the phone. That is so important to me. He finally caved and bought a cell phone before he left so we could keep in contact easier. That way if I need him even when he is at school I can at least leave him a message. It makes the distance a little easier to bear. So I decided to take a photo of my phone on my pillow. I miss him terribly and this chance to have him be the last person I talk to each night means everything. Also...incidentally....on Saturday I dropped my old phone in a puddle. May it RIP. It didn't recover. Since I don't have a landline and with everything going on with my family and my guy being gone I needed to get my hands on a new one ASAP. I splurged a little. I usually buy the cheap phones. But I got myself the nice one. A Sprint HTC Evo. I had some rebates so the phone itself was expensive but still do-able. I was nervous about signing up for a more expensive plan but I am eligible for a discount so it ended up only being $10 more a month. I have to admit...I love it :) So fun!

Happy Wednesday!

I didn't realize Cary was gone so long. How nice you two can at least talk nightly. And although bummer about the old phone - yay for the cool new one. I like the photo. The smallness of the phone on the bedspread. :)

Congratulations on your new phone : ) SO fun! I am sorry that you are missing your boyfriend so much. I can't even imagine that. When I read about military wives with husbands overseas...it just blows my mind.

I hope the last 2 months he is gone just fly by and you can be with him soon! In the meantime keep up with those phone calls.
