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 50 - 2/19/2011

Birthday girl's skates
Debbie kicked off her skates--it was time to do a few line dances.

Debbie & Doug Baggett
Tonight we celebrated Debbie and Doug's birthday party at a local skating rink.  I had hope to get some cute pics to post for Day #50.  However, most of my pics blurred due to the low lighting.  I changed my camera settings several times, but never could seem to find the right setting (this is a little more difficult on a point-and-shoot).  I would snap a pic and by the time my camera would process the photo, the people in the photo would move and vuwahla (sp) blurrrrrrr!

So, my pictures didn't turn out quite like I had hoped, but so what . . .  there's always tomorrow and 315 more days of photos to post.  :-)  I enjoyed celebrating Debbie and Doug's birthday and getting together with good friends.  I'll take that any day over a picture!


  1. That's the spirit...enjoy good fellowship while it's happening. There will always be time to take more pics. That last one is great. They look like they're having such fun!

  2. Didn't know you knew Debbie. She was at Fulton Road when we were there. That's when she was married to Billy Evans. Small world. Looks like you had a fun time.

  3. I think you got a cool effect with the skates! Looks very disco!

  4. Great shots, Cheryl!!! Love the first one especially..and those faces on the third are great captures...

  5. You are so right.Spending time with good friends is so important.happy Birthday Debbie.

  7. That's life! Why does it always have to happen that on a day with millions of great photo opportunities, none of them turn out as hoped. And then on other days you only take 1 picture and that's perfect!

  8. the skates look dangerous, if I tried those I would en up as on your newest post I think LOL
