I’ve been so busy…

…with the baby, work, family, and the new Facebook group, Oh, Shoot! that I have neglected to post any of my recent photos here! I’m going to just post a few so you can see that I have been shooting, and then I’ll try to keep this blog a bit more current.

Here’s my favorite from Creamery Picnic…

And one that was taken for a photo scavenger hunt…

(Edited with ReDynaMix HDR plugin for Photoshop Elements)

This one was from today – a response to The Daily Shoot assignment, “a single element”.

See? I have been taking pictures! If photography is your thing, please come on over to Oh, Shoot! and join in the fun and frivolity!

Please join us!

Our Project 365 fan page on Facebook is moving over to a more user-friendly group format. We’ve changed the name to Oh, Shoot!, and we’re having a great time sharing photos and thoughts. Please come on over and join us!

Today we were challenged to shoot something in our favorite color. My favorites are blue and purple, so I went in search of some bluey-purpley flowers…

The vintagey collage frame came from The Coffeeshop Blog. I just love her stuff.

What have you been shooting lately?

Exciting times in Scrivnerburg!

Nana got us an Insect Lore Butterfly kit a while back, and we got our caterpillars and started watching the whole metamorphosis. It was fun and interesting, but nothing compared to the unbridled excitement of watching butterflies emerge from the chrysalises!


I wish I had had the time and inclination to chronicle the entire process with my camera, but it’s just been such a busy, busy time…

Here’s an over-processed shot of one of the butterflies immediately after it came out of the chrysalis. It’s over-processed so you can really see the butterfly.

One more shot of the excitement…

There was so much squealing, dancing, yelling, exclaiming, and exulting today that I finally had to send the kids around the corner to play. Well, I didn’t really send them – they went. But I didn’t bring them back. I did go check on them a couple times though. It was such a relief to have a semi-quiet house for a while! I’m sure the butterflies thought so, too. Kathy, thank you for allowing my children to take over your space this afternoon – you don’t know what that did for my dwindling sanity!

Here’s one last shot of Flyer One showing off (they’re all named Flyer – Flyer One, Flyer Five, and the Flyer Triplets.)
