Happy Holiday!

Hope your holidays are filled with love, friends, and family. Even if you don't really care for the holidays, you must admit you do like presents... of all shapes and sizes! So, enjoy and look forward to catching up with you both in the New Year.

Bustle of Beale, and chinese

The first three are photos of Beale Street. I played a lot with a slow shutter speed if you can't tell. I like this first one because it gives the feeling of Beale street- busy and crazy.

These two I just thought I would have a little fun with and run them through my poladroid program. I have a soft spot for polaroids.

And of course you can't leave Beale without a photo of this sign:

This is from the panda exhibit at the zoo. Chinese anyone?

a totally awesome set of feet

These feet belong to a girl named Monster. No, really. An important side note: "Monster" is not her birth name, it is an acquired name, a term of endearment multiplied by, like, a bazillion. These feet have traveled through some hard times, and some great times, interesting and complicated times mostly via swimming, biking, and running...and some free form dancing!

And though this picture is NOT current. I. AM. USING. IT! Period. And for three solid reasons:
1. They are NOT baby feet. Amen.
2. I need to catch up to my own assignments! Good grief.
3. Who cares about 3. Reasons #1 and 2 are good enough.

Catching up-Hands

The weeks are flying by and suddenly I'm way behind! I took this the week "hands" was our assignment with that in mind but thought I might take a few more hand photos before I I am with just one. But, I like it so here it is:

Again, another baby photo. I do plan on non-baby photos for the next two assignments so wish me luck!

Words. Letters. Signs. Text.

Our next project involves text...and I'm not talking about a form of cell phone communication. I'm talking about the art behind visual communication. Neon signs. Street signs. Billboards. Adds. Store fronts. Etc, etc, etc. Go out and find you some letters. Mismatched and interesting text. Try to spell your name...or be ambitious and find the alphabet. Spell words that are meaningful to you like, "love." Or whatever.

This project could require a bit of cropping.

Go forth and be creative!
Happy snapping!

Studying Hands

This is my daughter. She is three and very curious about everything. She found this moth in her sandbox and brought it over to show me. Then she asked me to take a picture of it. Then she wanted to see the picture. And then, and then, and then. On, and on, and on. The wonder of discovery continues.
I love her little sandy hands. But I REALLY love that little discoveries interest her so.

This spider lives on the side of our house. He is literally (including legs) the size of my pointer finger! We have an agreement: I don't mess with him. He doesn't mess with me. We both live.
I hope he was complimented that I used him for my Yellow picture. Yuck.
