Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

POTD - Week 9: Interaction

I was able to spend a little time this afternoon interacting with myself! It was quite relaxing to go outdoors alone (that hardly ever happens!) and just observe what was going on through my lens. I originally planned on getting some macro shots, but discovered the swans and geese on the lake. It was enjoyable to observe their interactions.
