Playing Catch-up

Once again, time is not on my side. The weekend has flown by but for once, I have actually managed to get some things done!

First off, this is my SOS (Show-off Sunday)photograph over on HSMSHS.

This is my favourite headstone in our cemetery. She is stunningly beautiful in real life and was erected in the early 1900's by a couple in remembrance of their 16 year old daughter.

This is only one shot of several that I took, trying out different focal lengths and perspectives. I could take shots of her all day.

My 'Hold' shot is a cheat that I took last Christmas, but I like it, so it's getting another airing! This is Aaliyah and her little cousin Rachael.


So what else have I done this weekend? I have finally made my costume for Hallowe'en! I made myself ill whilst laying and cutting it out and I think by association, every time I looked at the pieces, I felt ill again.
So yesterday, I forced myself to get on with it - and I did!

I'm not saying what it is yet though, because you never know who might be reading this!! Tee hee!

All with be revealed in a couple of weeks time.

Woke up this morning with another migraine and so I've felt rubbish all day, but later on this afternoon, I actually managed to do a LO!

Yes, I did! Really!

I'll get it on here within the next few days.

Bobs that is one great statue portrait. I love the angle and the Depth of field. Fabulous! And I also lov ethe way that Rachel's expression matches the statue's!

WoW! Nothing gets passed Maz does it :-)

Superb headstone. So very sad though. I have learnt a little about AV and feeling very good indeed :-) Can't have a "proper" camera as too heavy for hand and shoulders but think I will do ok with my lil compact :-)

Super hold shot. Such beautiful girls.

I recall your Halloween events last year :-) OMG How time passes.

Hope all is well and that the migrane has passed.

Sue :-)
