P52 Week 39 PINK


P52..catch up!

Things have been crazy crazy busy around here lately with all of the fall events in full gear. I have fallen a bit behind in my weekly project….just really too tired to pick up my camera when I get home from work and finish my “mom jobs” each night! Not really a good excuse but it’s all I’ve got.  I’m going to try to push myself through October to get back on track. I’m looking forward to next Sunday’s Clickin Walk sponsored through one of my favorite photography forums Clickin Moms to psych me up again!

SOOOOOO For catch up I’m going to pull from my archives 🙂

P52 week37: Sleep I actually did take some shots for this one the correct week but felt uncomfortable with the idea of posting them since my kiddos aren’t babies…images of babies sleeping don’t bother me, teens sleeping seems invasive in my opionion so instead you get my pup…she is a professional sleeper 🙂

P52 week 38: Shadows..the only shadows are the ones under my eyes, so I decided to sleep a little bit today and use an oldie but goodie for this week!

Next week’s theme is pink…with the Clickin’ Walk  and three girls in this household I should be able to get something!!! Fingers crossed that things slow down!

P52 week 36…PETS

This weeks project 52 theme is “Pets”. Our girl came into our life five years ago when we found her at the SPCA. She was turning 4 weeks old! 

“You can say any fool thing to a dog, and the dog will give you this look that
says, `My God, you’re RIGHT! I NEVER would’ve thought of that!'”
Dave Barry

“The truth I do not stretch or shove
When I state
the dog is full of love.
I’ve also proved, by actual test,
A wet dog is
the lovingest.”
— Ogden Nash

🙂 We appreciate the joy and unconditional love she shares with us daily 🙂

Project 12 The way I view…PLAY

“Summer” is officially over since school started this week 😦 but it did give me a chance to review the August theme for my project 12…PLAY!

Summer play is intermingled with getting back to school supplies, however, play definitely still takes center stage! For us summer play always involves water…

and this month, my girls have become obsessive about volleyball..

at the beach…

in the backyard…

at the park….

and even in the dark!

They’re volleyball maniacs I tell you, maniacs 🙂

Thanks for checking out how I view “play” this month! Now check out how Dawne views play and continue through the circle of talented photographers that span the globe!

P52 week 35…silhouettes

This weeks theme is silhouettes (I have a terrible time spelling this word!)..I’ve never really tried to shoot a shot like this so this is definitely a rough first attempt 🙂 We had some rain and clouds today but about 15 minutes before the sun was gone I grabbed the girls, the pup, and they grabbed their volleyball so we could pop over to the bit of sky visible in the neighborhood. They danced around in between hitting the ball while I tried catch silhouette shots while convincing the pup NOT to chase every single duck by the pond lol :D.

I have a long list of what I need to do better of course and definitely will always being looking for more ideal shooting situations, however, I’m pretty happy with the first intentional effort!!
