Macro Friday

October 08, 2010
If you asked me yesterday what I was going to post today, I probably told you that I have nothing. Nothing. In fact, I was almost prepared to not post anything today – but seriously people, that might be painful…and we’ve already established that I have an addiction problem (photo challenge addiction, it’s a real thing…look it up).  Anyways, I got my hair did yesterday afternoon. Macro hair photography isn’t really my forte, so I thought I’d photograph something a little more symbolic…and abstract. I also played around with my processing,...

Actually, when I saw that Mandy’s  (a Sorta Fairytale) photo challenge this week was “snoozing,” I could only think of one photo (outside of the one that my husband caught of me and Kitty Paw last night).

In her post, she links up with Dirk’s Tutorial on “Creating Your Own Planets“.

Touch-Up Tuesday: Bridal Portraits

September 14, 2010
My husband’s cousin and I went to college together. In fact, my husband and I met on MySpace (you remember myspace, right?) after he saw me as a friend on her page. I remember that Sayrah was a little shocked that my husband was able to convince me to go out with him…or something to that effect. Anyways, Sayrah has recently started her own blog: Dress Your Best…For Less – she’s got a natural eye for fashion…and for finding the look for less, so check her out. While visiting the family a couple of weekends ago, we talked “shop” for a little...
