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!
I got to keep my cute little granddaughter for the morning while my daughter took some time for herself. Unfortunately, my air conditioner is on the blink and me and this little lady started to get very hot. I pulled in a couple of fans that I keep in the garage to try to keep us as cool as possible. Even though it was hot, we got in our usual photo shoot. I would love to try a few poses with her but I think she is teething, not to mention it was about 87 degrees in my house, so she wasn't too cooperative as a model. She also wants to stand up at 3 months old. She can't even sit up on her on yet or even crawl, but she keeps trying to push up on those legs. She is going to be running around before we can even blink!
