Day 88

A.E.I.O.U.

Your Vowels

Thanks to my sister Sara for this recommendation… I guess that its probably on her mind as Maggie will begin to learn letters soon! 🙂  Do you remember writing your vowels over and over again. I can remember doing this and in print and cursive — was that 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade? Probably 1st?

Day 86

Yesterday I asked for help on how to continue a version of the Alphabet Challenge… My OCD because I need to have a complete calendar month. Thanks to everyone for the ideas. Today’s winner: MEGHANN!

SPRING is here!

SPRING is here!

Again, I got to use my macro lens… Very fun. My dad was joking about how he took pictures of grass and my mom complains that there are no people in it. So, I guess that’s where the idea came from. A combo from Meghann and Dad. Love the color of the letters and the bright green grass.

Day 85

And finally… Z is for ZEST!

Z is for Zest...

Z is for Zest ... When is processing too much?

I’m pretty excited… Not only did I finish the Alphabet Challenge today, but I also received my first macro lens… Nikon 60mm f/2.8. Z is for ZEST — not only the literal lemon zest in the picture, but also the zest in life… zest for photography… zest for new challenges. (What will be my new challenge!?)

In this post… I posted both the original AND a processed version. Which one do you like better? I like the exactness in the processing and the color, but also want to stay true to the art of photography. Thoughts?

Day 84

Y is for a Youth Yelling Yeah!

Y is for a Youth Yelling Yeah!

I’m at home for the next few days so of course I had to figure out a way to include some shots of the kids. Sam has this awful rash on his face (its going away)… So, I thought about doing YUCK. But that’s not nice. I gave Sam the “Y” and he began eating it and playing with it and laughing at it…
