I have finally set up a flickr account. I see so many people have these little flickr buttons on their pages and I have dropped in to view a few of the sites, there are some incredible photographers, crafters etc., out there. I wanted and need to be inspired and taught and I figure one of the ways will be to have some photo groups to post too. My photostream is limited at the moment I don't really just want to upload a million of my travel pics there, so I am deciding still which way I will go. Will I put up albums of certain groupings, hmm not sure yet.
I did post the pic on the left yesterday, in a group, under the type, itsy, bitsy, teeny, weeny. It was raining here, lovely by the way, but cold and I had a poinsettia sitting on the deck. When I moved it I noticed it was speckled with dozens of teeny tiny raindrops. So sweet.
I find it quite amazing what I see when I am really looking. I am having trouble deciding what to photograph too, so I am setting myself a task. I will start Monday 16th August and for 30 days I am going to take photos of things in my kitchen. No flowers, even if they are there, which they often are, I am going to limit myself and challenge myself to find at least 30 different things to shoot from my kitchen. I have some ideas floating around already so I am a little excited to be honest. Do you want to join me? I am thinking of things like, some fruit or veg when I cut it. Spices, teacups, real close ups, macros of items that are really just mundane and ordinary and see if I can make them a bit more interesting. So join in if you like, I think it will be interesting.
Guess what it is 4.15pm on Wednesday as I type this and I haven't been to see Elle today. I can hardly believe it. I have to restrain myself or the kids will be putting up the electric fence to keep me out. I had been to visit every day since she arrived home up till yesterday and decided that today I better just let Alicia have her own time with my baby doll. I am going to make her some little headbands though. I'll show you if they turn out ok.
I know here I go again, but I am displaying this pic of Elle to show the action I got and used from The Coffee Shop, it's called Faded Dreams. I love the soft peachy glow it gives Elle. I think she's smiling don't you?
Anyway join me in the kitchen shoot off if you like and let's see what we find.
