A Brush With Fame

That last post took a lot out of me.  I have to be real here, I am not a real writer.  Just in case any of you thought different.  It took a lot of effort to collect all the words to tell that last little story I spun.  Thankfully a friend invited me over for a fun afternoon.  It was just what I needed.
As I was leaving she called and asked if I would bring my camera.  I never want to bring my camera  when I get invited to people's houses unless I ask because I assume they all know if I bring my camera...they will be on the blog...and not everyone wants to be on a blog..really???

And every time I get to take pictures of other people and their kids I just wish I knew what I was doing.  I wish I was REALLY good.


And then sometimes you have a sweet little girl who runs outside, grabs some pink flowers, stops in front of some Azaleas and looks at me and smiles.

I will also tell you this sweet mama has 2 boys that would not come out when they saw my camera.  I love how boys just know they don't want to fool with smiling for no reason especially when there are "girls" outside doing it.

But in another life I would love to be really good at this and have all the toys to make taking a good picture simple.  When I first got my camera I had high hopes for where my Nikon could take me.

I started asking Pete for things like Photoshop ($600), a polarized filter ($200), a new lens ($1200) and maybe a class or two. 


Let's just say he was THRILLED when I began to get interested in knitting.  All of a sudden spending $30 for yarn was an easy pill to swallow.
But one day..I would like to learn to play at taking pictures but for now...I just love the fact that I get to practice with such fun people.
And in case you did not recognize who the sweet mama in the photos was..it was The Betty Beguiles.
