Hi! Long time no see. What have you been up to? What have I been up to? Glad you asked. I've been taking pictures, learning my camera inside and out, learning about lighting, and the technicalities of taking a good picture and trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up. Then I figured . . . hey! I love taking pictures, why not try to make something out of that. So, who knows. Maybe, after I gain more knowledge and experience with my camera . . . I might go pro. Heck, I've been behind a camera most of my life just for fun. I think it's high time I did something more with it. I'm always telling my kids to find something they love and do it so well that people will pay them to do it. It's time for me to take my own advice. Don'tcha think? I've been sharing some of my pictures on the National Geographic, Your Shot, photo sharing site. I'm getting good feedback. (YaY!) Here are some of my favorite photo's that I've snapped recently. This picture is better in it's largest form. Look close. You can see the reflection of trees in the raindrops.
My daughter's conure, Pickles.
My poor doggies went outside to do their "business in a rainstorm. This image captured me . . . so the poor things had to stay outside just a few minutes longer while I grabbed my camera and took a few shots.
My sweet, youngest daughter humored me and posed for a photo shoot so I could have some practice with portraits. She's such a good sport.
I hope to blog more often, once again. However I know my time away has caused me to lose followers and my social status in Blogland has most likely been demoted to "hermit" at best. If you stop by, please say "Hi!" and let me know what you're up to. I'll come by your blog too and say "howdy" back. And please, somebody please tell me why I can't separate paragraphs in blogger anymore. I should have at least four separations above the photo's but they're all smashed together instead. That's gonna drive me nutzo!

Wow, that blue post really makes your daughter's eyes pop. Or is it the other way around... =) Great pics!

Beautiful, Christy. My son is also posting pics on the NG site :) I lost your blog page for a while ... but I just saw your post on the Carolinas listserv. Looking forward to seeing you.

Thanks Vijaya! Yeah, I haven't been blogging very much. The last couple years have been kind of crazy. I'm getting back into the swing of things. Not sure how to start building up my blog followings again. I've been working on a MG fantasy/magical realism. We should get together at the conference and hang! :0)
