BG & Macro Photography 101

Today was so awesome! I got to spend it watching and slightly teaching BG about macro photography. She nabbed my camera and my macro lens and just went gang busters. There is a very real possibility that my girl is a much better photographer than I am. Love her passion. She has such an amazing eye for what is going to look good. It was fun to watch her learn some of the basics of using a camera that isn’t just her phone.

For the first time ever, these photos do not belong to me. They are all hers!

Cover Photoshoot Round 2

BG and I had another fun evening trying to get my cover image for my book. I THINK I may have gotten what I want. I need to do some playing with it, and then have an actual conversation with a cover designer, but… I’m seriously happy with what I have so far.

Refining My Perspective

BG graciously agreed to help me work on my book cover concept this week. I adore the fact that she is not only willing to help, but pretty excited to be a part of this with me.

B&W Photo Challenge – Day 1

Janie tagged me in the B&W photo challenge. There are rules and, as usual, I don’t like playing by the rules. So… this is supposed to be 1 photo a day for seven days. I’m not sure I can stick to that as I’m sure I have way more than just 7 I like, so there might be more. I’ll stick the the rule of no people as I don’t usually post photos of people anyway. You are also supposed to tag someone else to participate. Nah, you want to play along, please do, otherwise… enjoy.

Banana Cake With Cream Cheese Icing

I had planned on doing my usual with this and taking pictures along the way, but… me being a crazy, stressed out, busy me over the last several days managed to forget that was the plan until the cake was baked, iced and served out onto plates.

I’ve only done this one a few times, but we all really love it. It is very similar to banana bread, but just a little lighter in texture and just a touch sweeter, because… cake.

Buzzy Day

Today is the only day this week and probably next that the weather is actually sunny and nice. I took a few moments to get out and grab actual proof that Spring is here and that I have some color before the predicted snow. Yes, snow. In April. For the second time. My poor Hyacinths probably won’t survive the second round and the freezing temps we are supposed to get. I needed some evidence that I actually had some flowers this Spring. *sigh*

Evolving Traditions

From the time my kids were old enough to do puzzles and play games, Hubby and I have tortured our kids on Easter by forcing them to do a scavenger hunt to find their baskets. It took a time or two for them to get the hang of things, but they absolutely fell in love with the tradition.
