You Capture: “Play”
This has been a busy week…well not so much a busy week, but I had a busy weekend. So, I haven’t done as much shooting during the week because I spent most of that time editing pictures from the weekend. Then, I look over at my planner (because I’m that dorky girl that has reverted back to a daily planner to keep track of all of my photography challenges) and see that the You Capture theme this week is “play.” 

You’ll remember this photo shoot I had with Kitty Paw (click on picture for more):

Well, to me…that says play, but the idea of You Capture is to capture a fresh photo to fit the theme and not pull a photo out of your archive.

So, I started thinking about play, and what I might be able to accomplish by myself – since I had no one else to play with (and get your minds out of the gutter people). Before we got married…before I started this blog, I used to waste a lot of time on Facebook. Sure, Facebook is a great tool to reconnect old friends, but it really is a time drain. There were two applications that occupied my time: Beweled Blitz and Farm Town. I closed down my “farm” a while ago because I wasn’t quite sure what I was trying to accomplish by adding points, farm equipment, etc…but, if I’m ever really bored and need something to do, I’ll occasionally pull up Bejeweled Blitz for a few minutes. So, I did just that last night…except I DID NOT play the game after taking the photo.

    My mom is ADDICTED to Bejeweled and I told her I was going to send her to rehab :) I don’t have a lot of room to talk- when subbing time rolls around, my robo defense play time sky rockets.

    Ahhh, my mother is also ADDICTED to Bejeweled via facebook. And indeed, Facebook is a time drain (and a little tempting to stalk), but oh so addicting.

    I just love your kitty so much! I don’t play games online but when I did…LOL Love bejeweled and on Facebook (which I cancelled) word ladder

    Ha! I had to completely delete that game from my info a few months ago. It was just TOOO addicting!

    This is too cute!! Love it. So I’m a nerd, before we had our son- I used to play SIMS all the time. I built my little house/family from scratch. Gotta love computer games. Ha ha.

    Mwah Mwah Mwah! (That’s the sound of me kissing Kitty Paw). :-) Ok, that totally didn’t turn out right. Whatev! I have to say…not a big fan of animals, but I think I’m slightly in love with Kitty Paw. Thanks for letting me know about that code on my blog. I knew i changed something awhile back, but I couldn’t remember what. Now I realize it was having to “approve” comments. I took that off; didn’t want to have to approve every one. I might have to take off that code thingy if it’s annoying. But I don’t want junk either. Hmmm…suppose I could always add it back if I got junk mail.

    Hey, thanks SO MUCH for taking the time to write out that radial blur technique. I printed it out, and am going to try to take a picture where I can do that trick. It’s so cool! Thanks for listing all the steps – I would have never figured it out. I appreicate you taking the time to do that! ♥ Hope you’re having a great Thursday – now off to get that mohawk!

    Bejeweled is so addicting. Great play shots!

    My husband is addicted to World of Worldcrack. Personally, i spend way too much time on Twitter and Facebook doing marketing, so not much time to play games. Photoshop is my weakness.

    facebook is a time drain, I agree! The only reason I get on is to check how my sis n law in Tucson is doing. ha.

    Daily planners are a must! If you’re a dork for it, then I also wear that name proudly! :)

    You captured the essence of a playful, mischievous kitty there – I love it! He’s on the hunt!

    I lurv kitties so of course love your capture…& the Bejeweled shot is way cool!!!

    Any apps that involve cooking, but they really don’t take as much time as they used to… it’s wordpress and writing and photography that’s occupying me these days.That kitty is so cute!

    Hi Ashley. First thanks for visiting my blog, i´m happy that it lead my to yours. Since I am a beginner in photography im looking very much forward to reading this blog. I will also be attending Photography Class {for SLR}
    Love the Kitty photo :-)

    I’m always super impressed with your photos Ashley – gorgeous catty cat!

    not a facebook fan, but i have managed to catch upwith very old friends in Oz. I was addicted to zuma (on my old phone) and when that was stolen i downloaded a free game on the net. Now blogging has taken over, i spend any free time doing that.

    This is a great picture! You take such amazing pictures!

    I love Kitty Paw…so cute! I used to be a Farmville crazy person till I also said “what am I doing this for”. It was so time consuming. Blogging is much better!

    All my coworkers play Bejeweled Blitz. They have contests to beat each other’s scores. Me, I’m more of a Cafe World kinda girl. And I like Castle Age, too.

    That’s one I’ve never played. Now that I’m blogging, I’m rarely on facebook anymore! Love the shot of the computer screen, and kitty paw is adorable!

    That cat makes me happy! I really have never been into computer games/video games, but I do love checking Facebook. I need to stop. :)

    I love Bejeweled Blitz :) Love your photos by the way!! I found you at the “You Capture” blog!!

    Oh my gosh – you are too funny. I have never played either of those games on FB – but agree that it is a big time drain. I would so much rather drain my time BLOGGING – HA!

    Love the cat pic!

    Oh my goodness, the time I have wasted playing Bejeweled. Well, let’s not say wasted. I’ve convinced myself it’s good for my brain.

    You are too funny!!!

    Adore your Kitty picture! And my hubby is addicted to Bejeweled and Social City. The noise of Bejeweled annoys me, so I don’t play, but Social City…we’ll see!

    I just wanted to stop by too to say THANK-YOU for your regular comments on my blog ~ I appreciate it greatly :D You are a fabulous photographer (love those sky shots!) and I shall be dropping by to learn..! :D

    I love bejeweled blitz on FB! :)

    LOL! I love Bejeweled on FB, too! I get sucked into a Bejeweled vortex every time I get on. *sigh* I only do that when I’m on the PC and not on my notebook, though. :)
