Friday Perspectives

April 01, 2011
I feel a little random today. In all fairness, my blog is named “RAMBLINGS and Photos” though, so I think I’ll lead with the ramblings today. In High School, I was infamous for my random stories…they were traditionally known as “Ashley Stories.” And if you were to get all my high school buddies in a room together, I’m sure they’d be happy to take a walk down memory lane and make fun of me for a little while (Candace…I’m sure you can account for the gang). In my defense, I have a fairly creative brain and creativity is unpredictable...
The Portico: Sneak Peek!

March 18, 2011
Last Saturday, I met up with my friend Pam and a few members (14-16) of The Portico (aka the youth group she leads) for a quick photography session…and I say quick because we’re talking about teenagers and they have a pretty short attention span. I’ve never really photographed a large group before so it was quite interesting trying to coordinate so many bodies, but we had a lot of fun.

Next week’s items are sponsored by The Moral Muses, Becky @ My Daily Journey,...
Party Blowouts!

March 11, 2011
On Tuesday, I shared a few shots from the “surprise” birthday party I attended last weekend. I’ll share a couple more shots on Sunday, but I thought these were a fun way to celebrate the coming of FRIDAY!The kids found these “party blowouts” (I had to look them up to figure out what exactly they were called). They were having so much fun that I pulled out my camera to photograph them. This of course really brought out their inner animals as they jumped directly in front of my camera making it very difficult to focus. Of course, these are simply snapshots…so...
