Random and Odd

my first camera…and my baby

I took Alyx out a month ago and did her pictures for her. This weekend it was Shea’s turn.
We had planned this total whimsy shoot, but we were limited on time and every place near was yellow and dead. We gave up on the idea and decided to just try to get as many pictures we could and try again when the surroundings matched the idea we had in imagined.
Regardless of the time restraint and the craptastic surroundings we had a good time.

I love September 1st. It’s the doorway to the next season and I unlike all the other seasons, this one is always a mystery to me as to what good things may come. I know in the spring that things will be green and my birthday will be the thing on everyone’s mind. I like the unknown of what the weather is going to do until it settles into its season and we forget the complaints of it being too hot.

Today we did a lot of the things that we have been putting off. Lester hung the picture shelves and has been working on bringing my coffee table back to life so we can bring it into the living room and start decorating around it. There are not enough words to describe how happy I am to be able to have it back.

At the end of the day I noticed the last bit of sunlight hitting the fence. I grabbed my camera and ran outside in hopes of catching something. I took 35 pictures and the “snapshot” I took of the sunset is the one I like the most.
There is a challenge to take a picture a day for a week, a month, or even a year. I keep trying to do this and I keep getting a month in and then I forget to upload a picture and I just stop doing it.
This time I am starting slow. I am going to try for a week and see where it goes.

This means more writing as well.

I'm a lot of things, but mostly I'm just Random and Odd.
