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 71 - 3/12/2011

Kellyanne Elizabeth Moody aka Nonna's angel
Today began with a photo shoot with my little angel.  My niece Amanda is a superb photographer.  Not only did she photograph my daughter's engagement and wedding pictures, today she took some wonderful pictures of my precious little angel.  My daughter called me to see if I wanted to have my picture made with her and the baby.  Well, you know that I got myself ready and headed over to her house for a photo shoot.  And naturally, I brought my camera for a few photos as well.  I must have taken 40 photos of my little angel before I could help myself.  :-)

Although we were having fun taking pictures of Kellyanne, I can't say that she enjoyed her first real photo shoot.  (well, I guess it's not really her first photo shoot since she's been having her picture taken since the very moment she was born.).  Anyway, we had to take time to comfort her between set ups and, once again, I volunteered for that duty!

Amanda and I spent so much time taking pictures of the Kellyanne that I lost track of time.  I needed to be at the funeral home at 1 p.m. for the visitation of our Sunday School classmate and friend, Bobby Shaw.  I had cooked some purple hull peas that I had put up over the summer and needed to bring the peas over to Bobby's house for the gathering afterwards.  We had a wonderful gathering after the funeral--eating and enjoying fellowship together.  We shared our memories of Bobby and the mix of feelings over the loss of our friend!
