…Because I Have Don’t Have the Time For 1,000 Words, So Give Me a Break Already!!!

Blame it on Herb Way, photographer extraordinaire and creator of Portraits of Eve, for inspiring me to tinker with photography. THANKS A LOT, HERB!! AS IF I DON’T HAVE ENOUGH TO DO!!

Also, blame it on the fact that the hubster hardly EVER plays with the $700 Canon Digital Rebel I bought him for our seventh anniversary, because now I’m back at it again. Also, you can blame the fact that we’re too broke to buy artwork, so I’m doing it myself.

The way I keep this child’s hair, you’d SWEAR she’s being raised by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie.

In case you’re curious, I used the Lensbaby “Scout” lens to do all this nifty stuff. When I opened the box and looked at the instruction manual, the cover said, “mamma?” I just love companies that have a sense of humor.

Okay Herb, et al., should I just keep my day job?
