Theme Thursday - Collage

I totally love the theme this as week as I love to do collages. I took advantage of this challenge to design a collage for my digital scrapbook so I used a 12x12 size so it would fit into my book when I print it. This weekend we had the opportunity to play outside on the swing set at my parent's house and take advantage of the warm sun for about 1/2 hour. Of course I grabbed my camera. While I am still learning how to shoot in full sun, I managed to get a few worthy of the scrapbook. So here is a collage of my kids playing outside over the weekend.

Theme Thursday - Self

This week's theme is particularly hard for me, for two reasons. 1. There is a reason I like to be behind the camera, there are few pics of me that I love. And 2. cause I have a tough time getting the focus right. So I set out in my brightest sun room to capture a good shot of me. I used my tripod and a prop to get the focus right and snapped a few. Again, I am not thrilled with the results in the way I look and the focus, but the lighting was half way decent. Here are two of my best from that session:

Haiku Friday - Momma's an Ass

Haiku Friday

Poor Little Miss V
the subject of photo
didn't mean to hurt

I put her on stair
to take a quick portrait shot
and snap the camera

just then she falls down
and bounces off the first step
to the hard wood floor

poor girlie hits head
happened fast I couldn't catch
she started to cry

her nose was bleeding
but stopped after a minute
in my arms she stayed

all forgotten now
by her but not by momma
won't do that again!

And here was the picture that I snapped right before she tumbled. It wasn't even that good of a shot. I still feel terrible that I let this happen and that I should know better! Luckily she was only on the second step up. I'm not THAT stupid, well maybe I am. :(

Theme Thursday - Change

Because it has been a crazy busy week for me, just getting back from vacation and having two really busy days at work, this week's theme will not be all that creative. So for this week, I decided for a CHANGE to take pictures of things other than my three beautiful kids. These may not be all that exciting, interesting or good but these were my subjects last night.

Subject #1 - Doggie:

Subject #2 - Wall of Webkinz:

Subject #4 - Bar Glasses on the Cafe Table

Subject #5 - Mmmm Coffee

What Change pictures do you have to share today?

Technical difficulties??

I am having trouble posting comments on all blogs that use Word Press as a host. I cannot figure out why but they just don't show up. I have tried three different browsers and still nothing. Of course I am only currently using my one laptop because I haven't had a chance to try it on a different one, but I was wondering if anyone else out there was having this same problem? Maybe its the way my computer is configured?? In any case, I wanted to leave a message to all of my Word Press blogger friends who I tried to post a comment to from the past few days. Just know that I was not ignoring you but I was unable to comment. This includes Stacy, Kim, and Sarcastic Mom as well as many others whom I have visited but couldn't post. I hope to get this fixed soon cause its really annoying! If anyone has any clue as to why I am having this issue, please leave me a note. Thanks.
