It’s about time to start thinking about getting the Kid’s senior pictures taken. Since she spends so much time on a softball field, it seems appropriate that some of her pictures be taken on one.
Today we decided to see if we could make the pictures even cooler by figuring out how to light a softball on fire. A liberal amount of rubber cement will do the trick.
This was taken juuuust before the wind shifted back toward her glove, causing us both to jump away from the flame (it would be Very Bad if that glove caught on fire…it took too long to break in. Well, and her hand would still be in it too). Her smile is so big because we’d just been saying, “Holy crap, look at the size of that flame!!!!”
I think it’ll be fun seeing what the photographer can do with her. And the flaming softball.
Went to a Maths Encounters lecture at the Baruch College Conference Centre held by the Museum of Mathematics. It was about tessellations and I felt a photo of this on the way back would be appropriate.
