Photoshoot fun!

Ever have one of those days where you just HAVE to get outside and take some pictures? Today was definitely one of those days. After POURING all day, the rain let up just in time for some beautiful light to filter through the clouds, complete with mood-setting wind and all.

I put out a facebook call to see if anyone wanted to join me, but after waiting for a response and getting none, I decided to just go it alone! So I grabbed my bag of finished knits, my dog, my camera and some accessories and headed up to the back yard! Maggie ran around looking very confused as I set up my makeshift tripod, but was quite happy to run after her tennis ball ring whenever I had a free hand to throw it for her. It took some trial and error on my part to figure out how to take a GOOD picture of myself... it would have been better if I was able to set up white balance and all that based on a person, but you play with what you've got, right?

Check out my flickr set to see some of the pics from that shoot, today's pics are at the end. Here are my two favorites below:

I noticed you were blogging again. As a faithful innernet peep I never gave up my subscription.

Welcome back and good luck on the shop.
