Fall is my fave.

I think fall is my favorite with all the colors.

These suckas always come untied.

Two-year-olds are strange.

For example:

In other news, I got a part time job at a bakery, and it looks like I'll be putting half my take home pay (or more) into daycare. I am planning on giving this job at least 3 months, and see if they bump me up to full time, or if I can find some reasonable daycare options. If I can do neiter I am going to try to work for a daycare, or go back to being a home-maker.

It's really too bad because I am REALLY looking foreward to this job. This is the kind of job I would have jumped at before I had a kid.

Photography blahs.

During this photography 365 project/challenge with James I really feel like I have had moments of brilliance. Lately, however, I have had fewer and fewer of those and all my photos I feel are subpar and definitely not something I am proud of at the end of the day.

Lighting, of course, is my main obstical, as I imagine it is for many photographers. Other than that, how I can I be a more consistent photographer? Any tips from anyone? Do I just need to take hundreds of photos and not stop until I have something I am truly happy with?

As someone who loves to eat, cook, and take photos, food photography almost seems like an obvious. This is something I am just discovering, however. Did you know there is a whole community of food photography bloggers and people who specialize in just food photography? That blows my mind.

Some of you may know I am crazy about free samples, and here is one I got recently. A beautiful slate cheese platter that I think is put to good use to display just about everything. I love the contrast that dark backdrop brings to the table, no pun intended.

Today I made Schar Gluten Free white bread. I must have 1. made it wrong, or 2. needed 2 packages to make a good sized loaf. The flavor was pretty awesome, though. I had two pieces; one with cinnamon and sugar, one with roast beef. The rest is just chillin' in the freezer.

Thought y'all might wonder what I'm up to. Photographing food.

Also, as always, mischief and no good.

The lady behind the lens.

Rag-rolled self curls. No make-up and my hair looks like a bad perm, I still like the picture....

Project James

I am trying to take more photos of my baby. On Facebook, I have been posting black and white images, here I think I'll post color.

Pictures from the past.

When I went to Washington for Christmas, my Grandma allowed me to bring a bag of pictures to scan for my own personal record. They're fantastic photos, and I am just getting around to getting them scanned. I thought I'd share a couple.

This is my Grandpa and Grandma(far left) on a date with friends.

This is my Grandpa when he was in the Navy in WWII

This is my Grandma when she was pregnant with my Uncle Lee

This is my Dad(the littlest boy) and his brothers Steve and Dan.

My life as of late.

Picture post.

On a different note, I have decided to ditch my music quote titles (and yes, pun absolutely intended.) They didn't really have much to do with the subject matter.
