About Me

My photo
I am usually typing on a computer most of the day, but today I am trying my hand at a new project: My 2011 365-Day Photo Journey. I gained a love for photography when I was required to take a fine arts class for college--I chose photography. The course required a lot of work--Professor Loehr saw to that--but it opened my eyes to a new world. It's been many years since I took that class and I don't know how much I actually remember, but following Laura Delagal's 365 Photo Journey and watching my niece's love for taking pictures has peeked my interested in photography again. Although I don't have a professional camera, I did receive a really nice Sony digital (point-and-shoot) camera from my sweetie for Christmas this year. Going through some difficult times in my life, I thought that undertaking my own 365-day photo journey might be a way to relieve a little stress and have some fun with my new toy. Through this journey I will capture some of life's joy and its pain, but I will also be able to refocus the lens of my life on the many wonderful things that God has created. Well, here goes. Wish me luck!

Day 48 - 2/17/2011

Becky Shirley - Reflection
It was another gorgeous day in Mobile.  So instead of eating in the caf, Becky and I decided to grab a hamburger from the Cloister and eat outside while enjoying the beautiful sunshine.  I took a pic of Becky sporting her shades and noticed that I could see my reflection in her sunglasses.  I tried several different angles to get the best reflection, and this photo turned out the best of the ones that I took.


  1. Yay...for nice enough weather to eat outside! I didn't notice your reflection until you mentioned it, then I had to scroll back up to look...lol. Your composition with the angle of the building is wonderful!

  2. If you could send some sun on my end, I would really appreciate it...LOL>...sweet that you are enjoying the sun...:)

    by the way, I see you on the reflection. Nice concept, Cheryl!

  3. looks nice and warm, we have to be dressed up a bit more before sitting outside, if we can at all.... the refection in the glasses ads to the photo
