Burning - The Ultimate Before and After
More Photo Session Fun
I made an 8x10 of all the kids for the family.
The kids' parents are getting married on New Year's Day...so I made this card for them to send to family that are from out of state. Christmas Card 2. Chris joked she didn't want people to come to the wedding and not recognize the groom.
Kay's New Camera
Your Typical Wednesday
Oh yes...and Mike got a phone call saying he was a new grandfather. You know, your typical Wednesday.
Challenge: Theme #20 - Rule of Thirds
This week's theme is going to be a little more educational. I hope this theme will be good practice for the novice and veterans alike. This week's theme is the Rule of Thirds (as opposed to the rule of fifths - salute and pass the tequila).
One of the most popular "rules" of photography is the Rule of Thirds. It works like this: Imaginary lines are drawn dividing the image both horizontally and vertically. You place important elements of your composition where these lines intersect.
As well as using the intersections, you can arrange areas into bands along the lines (across the top, left third etc.) You want to stay away from the middle of the image (like dead center or center of top row). (better image)
- Photo must be taken within the theme period (11/18 thru 12/2)
- Photo must not be manipulated beyond simple editing (cropping, contrast or light balance)
Oh, by the way.........drum roll please............ our next grand, outstanding, and yes, humbling thememeister shall be no other than..........the anticipation is killing you, isn't it........The Lens Cap is passed to The One, The Only (God I hope so), Mr. Wind in My Face and Waves at My Feet - he's hanging ten and burning down the house - SurferGuy (I shall pray for everyone's soul.)

Stanley Goes to Work
Stanley did great for the first few days of work...but he has since called in for a papercut. We taped him back up, but he claims it still hurts...he is now filing a Worker's Compensation claim...in Missouri it means he has a right to an attorney....Stan is starting to get on my nerves. He better shape up, or it's the shredder for him!

My Mother's Sewing Kit
I met KayN through work. Her husband works at the same plant I do (boss) and he is the greatest person on earth. (Has anyone seen my chapstick? I'd hate to kiss his butt with cracked, dried lips.)
I was asked by her husband to help her get her camera (Sony Mavica Piece of Crap) set up on her computer. So I traveled into the land of Kay. While there, I taught her how to deal with customer service representatives and she made a lasting impression on me with her crazy 1/2-sweet 1/2-onery attitude.
Soon, I was buying my own Sony Mavica Piece of Crap camera (did I mention this camera is a piece of poo?) and packing away my old 35mm. Back in the summer KayN finally convinced me to try out this website (after threatening to have me fired if I didn't).
Now here we are six months forward with plenty of "theme"work to do, and a very dusty home. Not only is Kay a great friend to have in your corner (don't cross her), a fun person to have over for dinner (she always brings the beer), a patient person (as I complain about my Sony Mavica Piece of Crap) she is a true inspiration...let's face it, she has made some magical pictures while limited to a piece of poo camera.
