Picture challenged

As someone who scrapbooks and loves photography, I'm not so good with the daily photos. I tend to take pictures at events or gatherings, when I have a project or page idea in mind, or randomly as the mood strikes me. I don't typically take my camera everywhere I go. This "Week in the Life" challenge has been a good push for me to take more pictures, practice more photography skills, pay attention to the details and capture the everyday. It's been a bit rough the past few days getting in to the swing of constant photos. I must admit, I haven't taken nearly as many pictures each day as I should. I'm hoping as the week progresses I get more natural at whipping out the camera for random "life" photos and become more creative with the images I'm capturing. In the mean time, here are a few shots from yesterday, my fun and exciting day off. Really, I cleaned and puttered around the house most of the day, so nothing to captivating to capture on film, but I did my best.





Here are a few shots from today:

Woooohhh! Pretty blog! I love it. So fallish... :)

Here I am - should be in bed, but nope - I'm playing blog. Not updating my own mind you - just checking out yours. :)

I really like reading what you're doing every day - maybe I should play that game one week when things settle down in 4th grade...love the pics too.

Miss you...
