“Shadowed” : Weekly Photo Challenge



    I decided to enter this weeks photo challenge. The image I chose is of my daughter. I was playing around with lighting one day, this was about a year ago, I think. I had one piece of white foam board on one side of her, and another behind her. She was sitting on the floor in front of an arm-chair, so I just propped the board up and sat her in front of it. I held the other board up with my free hand. I had a tripod, so I used it to steady my camera. I also had a diffuser attached to the speed-flash. I guess what I was doing was more playing around with bouncing light. Anyway, what ever my idea was this particular day, I got some pretty cool shots. I particularly like the shadow in this shot. It already has a kind of somber feel to it and the shadow seems to deepen that feeling for me. Is it the shadow, or not? would it feel the same if there were no shadow? Wish I would have tried it 😉

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Shadowed.”


Dream Reader?

Thinking over this assignment ( and possibly over-thinking it ), one thing went through my scattered mind, ” I HAVE NO IDEA WHO MY “DREAM READER” IS!!! I’m new at this. I just want someone to read and enjoy what I write, and possibly take away something useful. I hope those reading will offer kind words of inspiration and support and I will do the same.

Of course, I would love for Norman Reedus or Robert Kirkman to read. Heck, Dean Koontz, James Patterson. D.J. Molle… you get the idea. I know I’m not exactly the writer/artist those guys are, but maybe someday. Maybe Lacee Swan ( is she still around? ) or Nicole from Mom Trends will start following me, or some other ProBlogger ( and yes, I just mixed zombies, murder, fashion, and family all in the same paragraph ). But if not, maybe another beginner thinking that what they have written is inadequate or too short or long. Anyone, Everyone! YOU, are my “Dream Reader”!

1. Today Is The Tomorrow You Talked About Yesterday

“Today is the tomorrow you talked about yesterday.” What does that really mean? Take a moment to reflect. How many times have we told ourselves “I’ll make that change, tomorrow…” or “I’ll start eating better/healthier, tomorrow…” We’ve all said it, probably on more than one occasion. Why? What is it about our generation that we all take tomorrow for granted. Why do we assume that tomorrow will arrive? Is it in our nature to procrastinate? Who knows? I certainly don’t, but what I do know is that Today is as good a day as any.

Today, I am writing my first “real” blog entry. I said I would start tomorrow because I couldn’t think of anything to write, however, Today is as good a day as any.


Hello! Welcome, Thanks.


Hello! Welcome. I’ve never written a blog before so I hope I’m doing this right. I’m not really sure what to write about. I guess, I’ll write a little about a lot, or maybe nothing at all. Whatever it is, I hope you enjoy.

Oh, Thanks!
