2009 is coming to a close. I didn't get a photo posted everyday, but it was fun trying.

Sunday, December 6, 2009

I don't get a lot of time for pleasure shooting lately, but I made time yesterday. Snow in south Mississippi is pretty rare, so I had to get some shots. I used Matt's Soft Focus 2 preset for Lightroom on the first photo.

8/12/09 - Kitty

Kitty is a very busy kitten and hard to capture with the camera. The top shot is what I usually get instead of a face shot. :~P

7/9/09 - Playing with Processing

I know he looks solemn in these photos, but after I played around with processing, they remind me of some antique photos I've seen - faded colors and no smiles.

7/8/09 - Cutest Baby

Isn't he cute? I took these photos of my brother and SIL's grandbaby for submission to a cutest baby contest.

Nana chose this one

Poppa likes this one - the rocking chair was Poppa's when he was a baby, and the barn in the background is Great-Poppas (aka GP) - the quilt was made by a GG Grandmother

I love the shining little "toofies"

7/7/09 - Git er done

I get a kick out of the things people want on their camera straps.

7/6/09 - Laundry

There's always laundry to be washed, dried, and folded, and it's always getting in the way of things I'd rather be doing. Today, I made laundry work for me. lol

Our office chairs see more action than our recliners.

No rain today, but it did get cloudy and a bit cooler.

7/3/09 - Feeling Inspired?

Am I feeling inspired? Maybe. I had to make myself pick up the camera and go outside this evening. I tried to capture some blue jays that are drinking the water that is dripping out of our AC, but they wouldn't cooperate.

I ended up with these shots of the caladiums and elephant ears. I have to admit, I'm pleased with what I got.

7/2/09 - Reading

This is just a quick shot of the book I'm currently reading.

7/1/09 - Crepe Myrtle

Our crepe myrtles are blooming. They aren't known for their sweet smell, or at least I've never read much that mentioned it, but if you get close enough, they smell very sweet and good.

I kind of like the soft processing in the first one. The second one is the same shot with different processing.

6/30/09 - I'm falling behind

I've fallen behind on my 365 project. It's been very, very hot and dry here, so I'm going to blame my lack of enthusiasm for getting a photo each day to the heat. It seems to suck everything out of a person.

It's still hot and dry, but today, Minoux seemed to be encouraging me to take a shot, so here he is in all his sleepy fuzzy glory.

Here's hoping I can get back on track with creative shots. I did take a bunch of camera strap shots during the days I missed, but I didn't think you wanted to see all those.

6/16/09 - Fox Cubs!

Today, I had to privilege of seeing two fox cubs in our backyard. One left quickly, but the other stayed around long enough for me to get the camera and grab a few shots. These aren't great shots, and are cropped, but I consider them very lucky shots. It's very rare to see fox cubs.
