It is a truth universally acknowledged that a rainy day becomes much cheerier when one is in possession of a turquoise umbrella.


I can only say...

Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious! :D Because that's what you say when you can't think of anything else to say...let me provide a visual aid to explain my feelings:

*sigh* I am now the owner of a Canon EOS 50D...and oh so happy about it!! :D Needless to say, I have been taking picture after picture after picture after picture...well, you get the idea! :)

I am planning to enter a photography contest hosted by A Little Sussy...the winner receives a the very first copy of her textbook. The problem is, it's a self-portrait contest and when it comes to self-portraits, I'm like this:

lol Well, maybe not quite that bad, but I'd much rather be behind the camera! :D That being said, I'm having trouble deciding on a *cough* entry...perhaps you could help me out? ;)

Photo 1:

An, um, attempt at an artistic shot. ;)

Photo 2:

Photo 3:

Photo 4:

Photo 5:

Please disguise your laughter with coughing at my attempts, and let me know which one you think. ;)

Alright, here are a few more photos made with my new camera...

One of my favorite subjects. :)

Another favorite subject! (Compare John and Zander and see if you can find any similarities in their features...I know I can't!)

Whoa...believe me, this was a rarity to get Wesley actually posing for the camera!

Miss Ellie in a bed of wildflowers.

And Elisabeth...:D

Yes, all of my siblings have been being chased by the camera lately...well, come to think of it, just about everything that might lend itself as a subject has been chased. ;) Expect more photos soon, because I am having some kind of fun!

Ooh! HOW FUN!!! I'm so excited for you! :)

For the self portrait I'd say either #3 Or #4!

That is an awesome camera! I'd have to say though, I am glad I'm not at your house right now, lest I get chased down too! lol ;) Really cool.. congratulations :)

Self portrait.. hard choice!! They are so beautiful. Hmm.. probably portrait #1.

Look forward to more of your great pictures!

What good siblings you have! Mine would hardly ever let me snap a photo :D

Your camera is lovely -- :D And if I say so myself I sorta liked the #2 pic of you...very becoming!!


P.s. Write Shop would kill me if they knew I put "sorta"...
