I've been out of town and without Internet service (AAARRRGGGHHH!!! I need my Internets!) for about six days, and I figured what better way to get back into blogging mode than with a link-up? So I thought I'd join Cari et. al. at Clan Donaldson and share some samples of my amateur photography with you. I just so happen to have some photos that work perfectly with this week's theme.
Have you ever taken a picture that looks so amazing to you that you actually think perhaps you missed your calling and could be making big bucks as a professional photographer? That's the way the picture I'm about to show you makes me feel. (Delusional much?)
This picture was taken from a boat with my good digital camera, at the end of a yearly post-graduation event at our sons' high school called "Last Blast." My husband and I were chaperoning this all-night extravaganza (for the fifth and last time, after our youngest son's graduation in 2011), and it always ends with a sunrise breakfast cruise past this lighthouse.
That first one reminds me of my youngest son; the next one reminds me of my oldest. This photo was taken with my iPhone camera when I was out visiting him, his wife, and their twin girls in Colorado last summer. I was taking my daily speed-walk (because I am no longer physically capable of running--that's my story, and I'm sticking to it) around a small lake near their house when I glanced at the dusk sky and was blown away by its majesty. I had to stop and snap away.
When Cari asked people to brainstorm to come up with some ideas for a theme for this week's link-up, I was really pulling for LOVE...and if you want to know why, tune in tomorrow for some of the best "Quick Takes" I've ever had the pleasure of posting! In the meantime, go on over to Clan Donaldson, where the gray skies are gonna clear up, and you'll put on a happy face.
