My Weekly Assignment

So here it is, another weekly assignment over at Mama Kat's. This week we had to choose from the following prompts:

1.) Recall a time when you did something to get noticed. Write about it.
2.) Begin with “I wish someone told me…”
3.) If you could rearrange three things about your life what would they be?
4.) What do you love to create?

I choose..........#4!!

I've actually been anticipating writing this one all day while at work. Yes, I like to "sneak a peek" while at work. I tell ya, I'm addicted!!

OK, what I LOVE to create are wonderful memories of my child, my family, my friends and vacations through photography!! I have a great love and passion for photos and through the last several years I have been told that I have a talent. I have even taken notice to my pictures and really love them! Hopefully someday, I would love to open my own gallery. In the hopes of one day opening this gallery, I would focus more on my photographs such as landscapes, seascapes and such. I feel nature cooperates more when taking photos. :o)

When taking photos, I have a great fondness for the color tones of sepia and black and white. Sepia really captures the moment of the picture in ways color can't. Where as I feel black and white hides flaws. Case in point, I have a picture of Sabrina and I (clearly, not one that I took) but Sabrina was all dressed in a pretty dress and I was just there as a mom, watching my daughter get her pictures taken. The lady photographer asked for me to join Sabrina. Mind you, I was just wearing a, yet plain brown top. Nothing fancy, that's for sure. When I viewed the pictures, both color and then black and white, the black and white truly turned out fantastic. So much so that I purchased them, all because you couldn't tell I was wearing a plain shirt because of the black and white.

I actually just posted a blog earlier this month about my love for photography. I even included a photo album to view. Please go check it out here.

THanks for sharing! :} Photography is a great way to self expression. My sister loves it as well, and if you've got it, you've got it!

I am off to see the pictures you linked us too..

This was a really great post to read. I love hearing other people talk about something they love so much. Photography is a great skill to have and to know that you have it.. you DEFINITELY have it!

I think you have a real talent for photography! I only wish I did! I LOVE taking pictures. LOVE it. Love it so much everyone gets overly annoyed with me. But...I don't have the eye or the talent you do.

I think that would ROCK if you could open your own gallery!

Oh I love photography too. And I totally agree, there is just something about the sepia and black and white tones that add so much to a photograph!

Great pictures! I have more pictures than I know what to do with, but I love them.

I've noticed the same thing about black and white. Sometimes I'll post pictures and mess with the contrast levels to make people look better too. If only I could always walk around in black and white...I'd be totally hot. ;)
