Back to Regularly Scheduled Programming....

Got a little busy over the holiday weekend. Had a fun time with the cousins: lots of Wii-ing, movie-ing, playing. Also a fun visit to the art studio.


December starts tomorrow, and Owen reminded me that we don't have the advent calendar up yet. Guess what I'll be searching for in storage tonight?

Crazy Hair Day...Again

crazy hair day

I swear this day comes around more than once a year at our school. Harrison likes it because it means his hair looks crazier than usual. And if you've ever seen him in the morning, that's saying something.

Team-Up Thursday: Week Forty Three (BEFORE)


Melody and I have quite the domestic diptych this week for our theme BEFORE. Melody chose her bed, I think right before she got in it; I just have laundry on my bed. I like her idea better :).

I was thinking about doing a follow up shot of AFTER...but the clothes are still sitting on my bed as I write this.

What do you have to show us this week? Check out the flickr group for more great diptychs.

Join us next week for METAL (heavy or otherwise :).

Team-Up Thursday: Week Forty Two (PAPER)

paper dip

A fun combination, huh? I almost did a paper airplane, but I'm glad I didn't. It wouldn't have looked half as artistic as Melody's shot. I made do with something we have a lot of: candy.

I'm thinking of calling my shot "The Morning After." :)

What do you have to show this week? Check out the links in comments, or hop over to our flickr group for even more great diptychs.

Next week, we're doing BEFORE as a theme. Lots of creative interpretations with that one, so we'll see you next Thursday!

Team-Up Thursday: Week Forty One (ORANGE)

orange dip

I wracked my brain all week trying to come up with something ORANGE that didn't have anything to do with Halloween. Apparently, Melody and I had the same thought. How awesome is that orange soda? I've never heard of Frostie soda, but it's sure got a cute bottle:). I love that we chose the same shade of orange, too. My purse + her soda = a match made in heaven!

I sure could have used a swig of that orange bubbly after squatting in the street trying to set up my shot. My neighbor's lawn is covered in beautiful yellow leaves, so I set my camera on the mini tripod in the grass and tried to focus on the purse. Then I set the timer, ran around to the front and tried different things until I got something usable. I'm pretty sure my neighbors thought I was a little loony. Actually, they all know about my photography habit, so it probably didn't phase them.

Can't wait to see what's in the pool this week. Make sure you check it out.

Next week, we'll be doing PAPER -- lots of possibilities there. So join us or pick your own theme, just get shooting!

BSM: Halloween

I present Heat Miser and Snow Miser, those famous brothers from "A Year Without a Santa Claus."

The Miser brothers hit it big on the Halloween circuit, hauling in more candy than they can eat in a year.


And really, who can resist these two charming fellows?
