Coming out of the Closet

I am what you might call a closet photographer. I love to take pictures but don't have a lot of skill. But, every once and a while, I take a picture that I think -- Whoa! How did that happen.

I keep practicing and I think I am getting better. So I think, because, what is a blog if it isn't to brag a little, I am going to show off a few of them...

Just for fun -- and maybe a little validation.


I have the hardest time taking flower pictures. I have a blogging buddy who seems to be an expert at it, but I really struggle. If I get as close as I want to, the picture blurs. If I back up, I can't get the detail... This is one that finally turned out the way I like -- you can even see the pollen. Although, I did have to put my bum in the air, just like my friend suggested.

I have no idea who these people are. I actually posted this one before. I took this on the beach in Hawaii. I just thought it looked so cute. Poor people, they have no idea someone is looking at their hindquarters...

B and I were hanging out in the backyard. She looked so dang cute, I had to get the camera. But she kept running away from me to the side of the house by the kitchen window... So I kept chasing her. I love how her reflection even shows her eye color... I found out, rather quickly, that the adorable look on her face and the reason she kept running from me, was because she was pooping her pants... Oh well, makes a great shot.

Maybe I will post some more later...

Wow great photos... I love pooping faces and pictures... B is adorable! I just have a point and shoot digital. I wish I had an SLR or whatever they are called...someday...

Well, it's about time you came out! You've got some serious talent there woman! The pictures are great. I love the one of B...so precious, so sad. I can just see her little mind working....Mommy you're not gonna be so happy when you find out what's in my pants!!!! Looking forward to seeing more. Oh, and I heard you sing too?!! Gotta give us demo on that one too! :)

Many hugs.............

Those are great! I love that last one especially. I love photography but I too find it hard to capture just the right shot. Keep working at it though and keep sharing. I love looking at other peoples photo's.
