I Love Productive Days

Lets see... photography, beads, dinner, school play, Jr High dance, and last minute cupcakes for a school friend. Yep with the help of all the family we got it all done. Yea!
So, I bought a book the other day on photography, and with the weathers help, I had a chance to do some of the exercises in it. I think it has already started helping me. Even after my photography class I am still having problems with all of the bells and whistles on a manual camera. I swear there is an obscure button pushed somewhere that is causing blurry photos. (There is NO WAY it could be me shaking) :) So here are a few of my practice photos. This weekend we are going camping at a beautiful location and I want to get some great shots this time.(Typically I take about 200 pictures just to weed out the half of them.)
Now, my beads. These are not really my style, but they are based on an artist that I love. Remember these are my very 1st attempt. I am not trying to make his paintings on beads, I just want the same feel as the paintings. I think they came out pretty good for my 1st try. I do have ideas to improve them next time, but I am happy with them.

I still need to figure out how to take pictures of them. Errr :{

My son's school has a Patriotic Play every year and I always love it. They do the same skits every year, but the thing I love is the songs they sing. The fact that a public school in California sings Lee Greenwood's God Bless The USA makes me smile. The other song they do I don't know the name of ,but they have a screen behind them that shows images of the United States and mixed in are photos military family members of the students and teachers. It is a very touching performance and I it reminds me how lucky we are.
Alright I have a ton of things to do to get ready for this camping trip. Be ready for tons of photos in my next post.
