The first photo is a going to work shot. The second is a going to ballet class shot.
If I wait until I get photos that are worth posting I would forget the few things I have learned about how to post pictures that I take with my tripod. I wonder if it is easier to take photos with a camera that has a remote capability? My idea is to take a few photos everyday in hopes to get better at it but amazing how many excuses get in the way.
