Back to School

August 10, 2010
From what I understand, all the kiddies are going back to school. I may not be going back to school, but I’m ready for class – Faith’s Fall SLR Photography Class! I got this handy dandy notebook here to take notes…I’ve got stamps for all the letters and postcards I plan to write…and I’ve got my daily planner ready to keep track of all my challenges and assignments. Are your registered? If not, you should be. Click here. Before classes start, let’s give our summer vacations a moment of silence. Good bye summer. We really did have some good...
Challenge Me Tuesday

July 27, 2010
As I mentioned in my previous post, Tuesday is an incredibly busy day in the world of photography challenges. Since my google reader is acting up today, I’m not sure if I have the time or patience to create separate posts for each challenge – besides, you guys would quickly get tired of the updates.

One photo, in particular, stood out. You see, the photo below was taken when our niece was maybe a year old (the data on the photo says 2008, but I know that’s not the case – I think that’s when I stole it from my husband)....
4th of July…Fireworks…FAIL!

July 06, 2010
one: My sister came up to visit this weekend. We had a great time laying by the pool and listening to live music at one of the local Irish pubs. I’m actually surprised that I haven’t tried downloading any music tonight. two: Last night, we found ourselves on a hospital parking deck to view the fireworks. Unfortunately, we were over a mile away from the fireworks and I only brought my 50 mm f/1.8 lens. I also failed to bring my tripod. I took close to 400 images…I saved THREE! We should have just gotten sparklers and called it a day. three: I have $50 to spend at TJ Maxx (a...
