2013:52-03 waiting for the stage… er, um… gym floor

 waiting to jump

My oldest niece is part of her school’s jump rope team. Here she waiting to perform at halftime for a local high school basketball game. Little does she know I snapped her photo AND her team coach gave her the old bunny ears. It was fun watching her in action. She’s quite the jumper.

2013:52-02 {homework can be fun}

Homework. Just the word sends shudders down my spine. I’d gladly go back and get a Masters in whatever if I just didn’t have to do homework and take exams. Don’t get me wrong, I love learning. I just don’t like the pressure of a deadline. Now if I could tackle homework with an attitude like this, I’d be all over it.

homework can be fun

This is the 6 yr old daughter of a dear friend in our small group Bible study. We meet every other Thursday so this little munchkin gets to do her homework while we all catch up on life. I know she’d rather be hanging out with us or watching My Little Pony but she gets her work done even so. And with a grin. How fun is that?!

where did the time go?

Has it really been nearly 4 months since my last post?! Wow. I’m reeling. Can’t believe how quickly time passes these days.

<blink> It’s Thanksgiving

<blink> it’s New Year’s

<blink> it’s Valentine’s Day

Is anybody even still out there?

I’m still here. At least I was last time I checked. There are some days I wonder.

And I’m still taking photos. No project 365 this time around – well, not with the big girl camera. Still doing the fat mum slim photoaday challenge. I enjoy the prompts most days but trying not to let myself get too hung up on it. I can get stressed out when I miss a day or 2 (or seven) so I’m taking a more laid back approach this year. It’ll get done when it gets done. Just gotta enjoy the ride. Join in the fun!

Now, I am tackling photos with the Nikon in a different way than the past. Trying to challenge myself and grow in many ways. I really want to work on my portrait skills. (guys only like girls with really mad skills… nun-chuck skills,  computer-hacking skills…) 😉 So my goal each week is to capture photos of people. Obviously, I started with those peeps I spend the most time with (~ahem~ the boy).

It’s nearly March so I am already WAY behind in my postings. Here’s the image from week 1. I’ve got some serious catching up to do.
