Time in a bottle

(One has to wonder, is she grinning at me, or laughing at me?)

Well here it is, we are at the end of another month. Can you believe how fast time flies? I recently heard a theory, well not to recently, but then again my perception of how long ago I heard this theory further proves it. I was reading a medical journal a while ago, longer than I thought. It discussed the perception of time, and why we see it moving faster and slower at different times in our lives. If I can find the article I will post it here, and do a blog on it… (Anna capturing time with photography)

As for now, I am once again getting side tracked. I read a while back that our perception of time is directly related or indirectly depending on how you look at it, related to the speed of our metabolism. Now if anybody out there has read something that contradicts this theory, or puts it to rest please let me know, I am writing about old information. Our perception of time was different when we were younger, time always seemed to move by a lot slower. As we get older, as I am sure most will agree, it sped up… Why? According to this journals research, it was due to the speed of ones metabolism.As children, we are growing fast; therefore we have a fast metabolism… this equals time perception moving slowly. As we aged, our metabolism slowed down… hence time moves by quickly the older we get. They used the spring fly (also known as the 24 hour fly) as an example, they also used hummingbirds, and small mammals that had a high heart rate, which equals a faster life span.

(Trust me, when you are waiting for soemone to look up so you
can take there picture, time can stand still)
These creatures perception of time were a lot slower than ours, now how they were able to base this conclusion I am not aware. I only remember thinking that this theory made sense. I have often reflected on my youth, and wondered why it always seemed like time crawled. Interesting no? Anyway, I was going to post more picks from Anna and my visit to Temple Square, but time is short today so I am going to just recap the weekend and share some cute picks of Anna.
(look how surprised she is that I am doing this)
(isn't she cute!)

(Anna looking at timeless antiques, ok I am through with all the time references)

This last weekend was spent by both of us in Concord. We try and rotate. As always, time goes by way to quickly and all of a sudden the weekend is over and we must part ways, tragic I know. We did, however get a lot accomplished. Anna picked out the invitations for the wedding, we also got shower invitations.
(they locked her out!)
We also got to do more introductions to friends. Anna got to meet one of my best friends and his girl friend. I will be posting pictures of Jay and Lisa soon, keep checking back guys. And I got to meet Anna’s dear friend Maria. On top of that, we accomplished tasks that had been looming, I got to study my camera more, and Anna worked on her final that was due… I will say no more. J We also got to go shopping together and play married couple at Costco, always fun. We had dinner at Chevy’s, thank you Emily. And that was it.
(Something is going on inside that head, I can sense the scheme)

(I think this was the, "you have taken enough pictures look"! see above.)

(Not quite sure what was going on here, most likely I was being mocked)

One thing that I find frustrating about being the photographer, is that I am never in any of the pictures. Here is my one appearance from the entire trip. However, the picture that I ended up in found above, I personally love. I will be posting again soon, so keep checking back... also thanks to everyone who has been leaving nice posts and questions.
