April is nearly half over and I’m FINALLY getting around to posting photos from March. I have no excuses. again. Just plain old lazy.
feet – toy – where you relax
if you know anything about me at all, you know I hate feet. And I mean H.A.T.E. They’re gross. And I don’t care who you are, they’re ugly. I think I love shoes so much because they cover them up
Oh Gus… you’ve got such a rough life. Wanna trade?
(this is the boss’ dog who hangs out at the shop quite a bit. seriously the sweetest dog ever)
So this is the first official ‘phoning it in’ photo of 2012. On my way home from hanging out with the girls & nearly forgot to take a photo for the day!
Oldest nephew raked in some cool gifts for his b-day.
Hot Wheels wall track + King Kong = awesome
Babysitting tip #54: Always come prepared with sugary treats to make & eat
(strategically plan it just before their parents get home & before they start bouncing off the walls )
(got the idea for these easy no-bake mini cakes from lisa leonard check it out here)
* and the exhaustion sets in *
Kelsey & Eva both are sick and both were melting down after spending a little bit of time together. K konked out on the inflatable dog – it was so sad and so cute at the same time. Hope those kiddos get some rest & on the road to recovery!
made it to day 150! woot!
* picture spring: spring board (an ode to inspiration) *
Today’s prompt: Find a shot, that you love, that was captured by another photographer. Admire it, study it and get inspired. Use that shot as a springboard into shooting a specific subject matter, a unique angle, or using a similar processing technique. They say that imitation is the highest form of flattery. Let the admiration you have spark your own unique creativity. Just remember to bring yourself into the process so the end result has some of what only you can bring to it.
So, I have this contact on Flickr: singlecupofcoffee that has photos that constantly amaze me. She’s taking daily shots of herself jumping through life. And the processing she does to her photos is stunning. I haven’t quite figured out the logistics of capturing myself jumping in a photo (working on it though) so I had this one of niece Eva trying to jump rope and decided to use it. And don’t you just love her expression?! Classic Eva.
