Zoom Zoom

December 07, 2010
Papa Willie (my husband’s grandfather) loves collecting antique cars…actually most of the men on my husband’s side of the family love collecting cars. During one of my visits in 2008, he took me outside to show off his antique Cadillac (I’m not exactly sure of the model…I’m sure someone will inform me). I hadn’t even thought about the world of DSLRs yet, but I did have my trusty Canon Powershot SD1000 on me.

They’re getting married at the same location next May. Anyways, I thought I’d share the shot below for a couple of reasons…I mean challenges:The Paper Heart...

Shutter Love Tuesday: Blue

September 29, 2010
This week’s Shutter Love Tuesday theme at the Trendy Treehouse is “BLUE.”I took this shot at the aquarium this summer. Do you have any idea how dimly lit the aquarium is…or how difficult it is to take a picture when you’re surrounded by small children? Oh wait…I bet you do! Anyways, if you want to see more “blue” shots, go to:  Before you go…I have another request. It appears that my elephant photo from yesterday made Photo Freak’s TOP TEN ! So, be a friend…vote for me (I’m #5)! If you don’t like my photo…go...
