i got a new camera and i'm taking a lot of pictures of nothing,
it's a steep learning curve for me guys.
this is my 3rd DSLR camera and you'd think it would be second nature by now,
but it's not.
every time i upgrade it's all different and there are
new bells and whistles that i want to learn how to use and it's hard.
bokeh is one of my very favorite camera effects.
*it's a blurry background in photos.
if you understand camera settings at all, it's the aperture
of a photo.
here's a bunch of photos that i snapped,
a lot of them are flowers.
why? well two reasons. i adore flowers, i mean adore...
and i don't have any sweet little people running through my house anymore
that will just do their cute little kid stuff and
not even notice i'm taking pictures. : )
this is a fun variety of morning glory i grew this summer
this is the gorgeous wedding invitation to my friend jessica's wedding.
it's new years weekend in antigua guatemala.
can you even stand it?
i wish i could say i'm going, but i will be attending their
minnesota party next summer and hopefully jess
will put her gown back on and have flowers in her hair and
i'll toast she and tim properly at that time!
i have been doing more photography jobs this summer and haven't really
had time to blog a whole lot. i haven't forgotten, really i haven't.
for any of you who have followed the story of joey and rory feek,
the movie rory made of their life was shown in theatres around
the country tonite (and there is one more chance to see it in oct.)
my friend jill and i went and i had my pack of kleenex ready but
didn't expect to need them till the end maybe? i think we were less than
5 minutes in and i was already crying.
it was beautiful and heartbreakingly sad and if you can, catch it
in october. it's just the most beautiful true story of
an angel here on earth, joey died this spring, much too young (she was 40),
but in those 40 years she taught so many people so much
about living a faith filled simple life.
she was even more beautiful on the inside than she was
on the outside.
rory also writes a blog and it's a good one.
check it out,
*our family is remembering elizabeth jean wencl today with love,
she also left way too soon.
elizabeth's family took the sourest lemon that life has
to offer, and somehow made lemonade out of it.
they have kept her memory alive with nothing
a friend just lost her brother and another has a brand new grandbaby...someone i dearly
love is having some serious health problems and i just learned of another
new baby due in march. this life will never be predictable so~
let's try and be kind to every single person we meet.
