I have been a busy girl these last few days which is why I haven’t updated on here since Monday. If you must know, I went to the American Idol Finale at the Nokia Theater yesterday (May 20th) with a friend on Seat Filler tickets. You want to know more? Sure, I’ll tell you all about it. If you are unaware what a seat filler is, don’t feel ashamed, I did not either until I was graciously informed by a friend. I will now be that friend to you. A seat filler is simply this: a person who fills the seat of anyone sitting in the first 50 (or so) rows of a filmed production (like American Idol) until the ticket holder arrives. Seat Fillers also occupy empty seats during the entire show to anyone up front that needs to pee or do a line of coke in the bathroom. Producers don’t want empty seats on film. I would soon learn, for a Seat Filler, a trip to the theater becomes an evening of whimsical musical chairs with Hollywood celebrities, past Idols and glitterati galore.

Meet Little Caesar. Caesar likes to run, jump, bark and eat milk bones like it’s his job. He is a very energetic little puppy who, after a solid four times around the block pulling me on my rollarblades, enjoys passing out on the couch with his tongue hanging low like a continental soldier. He has a good life.
The effects for this photograph were added using a wonderful web service that adds cool camera effect to your picture on the fly. It’s called TiltShiftGenerator, and in order to use it, you must Adobe AIR installed on your computer. You can find the Adobe AIR download on the TiltShiftGenerator website.

This photo was taken on a sunny afternoon in Carlsbad, CA. I caught this kitty up on the second story balcony of a friend’s apartment complex. The photograph was taken using my digital rebel xti at ISO 100. I used various photoshop filters tweaking the hue and saturation to make the colors vibrant and bright.
