Experiementing with photos

I had a great time with the girls the other night. It was our last girl scout meeting of the year. I wanted to get some cute, different, fun pix. They thought I lost my mind (which may possibly be true). Anyway, here's some photos that shouldn't give away any identities!

the girls

This was a semi self portrait last year. The girls and I went to watch the Memorial Day Fireworks. We took this while we were sitting on the hood of my car, freezing our butts off, waiting for the show.

Playing with Color

Han actually took this photo (semi under protest) but I did the color thingy. It turned out kind of cool, I think.

The Mansion

I have wanted to take a photo of this house for about 15 years. Seriously, 15. I used to drive by it on my way to school (College) and I was always staring at it. It's near a curve so it's a good thing I never had an accident. Anyway, the other day I was driving by and had my camera with me so I pulled over to the side of the road to snap this.

I don't know what it is about this house that grabbed my attention. It could be because there are no other houses nearby. Anyway, this house was the first vision I had for Derek's House. Who's Derek? Derek Alexander, from A Soft Impeachment . He ultimately ended up "living" in a different house, but this is where it started.

Old Building

It only took me about 3 weeks to get this. I kept seeing it, but didn't have my camera with me. The recently tore down a building and this is what was revealed.

Beckman Mill

I've posted this one before on my other blog, but thought that it was a nice one to share here as well. Neither of them knew I took the photo, and I think that adds to the relaxed element.

Welcome to Amy's Photo Booth

One of my "hobbies" has always been taking pictures. Not always great pix, but I still like to document things. I think the first pictures I actually took myself were in July of 1982 at a Rick Springfield concert. If I can find them and upoad them, I will share them with you.

But today, I'm sharing other photos.
*This is Lyric at a Girl Scout/city function. It was early in the morning (7:45) and she was very tired. I kept trying to get her to smile, but she wouldn't. Finally I said "Look, there's Kevin Jonas" and this is the response I got.
(FYI- She says she is marrying Kevin Jonas.)

*These next photos were taken last weekend. It is cousin, Jazz and Lyric. They are posing for their band photo. Jazz wants an 8 x 10 to put up on the wall.

Machesney's Child 2009

The poses were modeled after a Jonas Brothers poster on Jazz's wall.

Welcome To Amy's Picture Show

Soon I will have a snazzier template but for now this works. I would love to say that there will be daily photos but we all know that is not realistic. So, I will say there will be weekly photos and sometimes even more than one photo per day.

I hope that you bookmark this blog and stop by often.
