A Few Fun Images

A couple evenings ago one of my friends, Marie, came by and we did a photoshoot. My best friend, Jason, is really good at photography, and we keep trying to find subjects he can practice on... and I tag along because it's fun.

We were shooting in what will be Eduard's room, and our model suggested we snap some pictures of her reading some of the children's books. Jason then came up with the brilliant idea of having her read Time for Friends. And, sure, I stayed up past midnight that evening, but I got to help my best friend practice his photography and got an awesome promotional picture for my little book:

Marie Reading Time for Friends
[By the by, Marie said the story was super cute. So... you should get a copy if you don't have one already <smile>]

In even more directly Sonlight related news, we have debugged an issue surrounding submitting large images to our Photo Contest. You can now upload .jpg images that are up to 25MB... which is huge. And we've said that you could for a long time now, but now you really can.

In attempting to fix the bug, I had to run a couple of tests. Here are the results from one of them:

And one more little thing:

If you open an image of any of Sonlight's products, you will now be greeted by this cheery little guy while your image loads:

See if you can find him--er... "it"?--floating around Sonlight's website...

Wow, Luke! I didn't know that you were the author of a real live book. How cool :-) You are like, um, famous!

Not that you need any more inflating!!! Two of my boys (Age 5 and 4) ask for this book EVERY night, along with the read-a-loud of the day... Needless to say it is one of the few books that I am prepared to read night after night after night after.... which says quite a bit for it!

He/She/It is a cute little thing.

Tammy, <laughing> I was super excited when I got to see the first real copy. It was super fun <smile>. But I don't think I'm famous yet... "yet" <smile>.

Se7ev, that is super cool! Hopefully you don't grow to resent the book in the coming days <smile>.

Heather, glad you like it! <smile>
