Here is the list you have all been waiting for...and aren't I just the sweetest...giving it to you a few days in advance and all!?!?
...you don't have to answer that!
So without further adieu, here is your list:
I think it's going to be great!
Now a few notes before ya'll get started!!
*You may use any...I repeat, any type of image recording device!! Whether you have a fancy shmancy camera or a old school film one....or something in between - it's all gooood! My hubby plans on participate and only has an iPhone/Pod thingy to take pics with! Remember, it's not the equipment that counts...but it's the person behind the lens that makes a great photo - which leads us to point two...
*This is a challenge - not to try to record exactly what the words above say but to push yourself as a photographer! Let the creative juices flow and see how these words or ideas, inspire you to take amazing photographs!!
*Have fun! That's key!! Don't stress, don't fret, just enjoy the ride and the chance to grow in your skill, passion and hobby!!
So other then that...I think we're about ready....except for me....my 18-55mm lens decided it didn't want to auto focus anymore....nice eh?! SO...after ogling wonderful, shiny, pretty, lovely, new and the price of a car, expensive cameras that I so wanted to buy...I found a second hand lens online...cheap! So I'm going on Wednesday to pick it up....just in time for day one!
Well...I think that's all for now - I'm beat - we had a jam packed day! Up and at'em early, breakfast and then out the door to support our neighbours/friends at the local Terry Fox run. It was crazy hot already for it being so early! But we did a couple of kilometers around the track - well Dave, Joe, Alice and I...my older gals - well they stayed with us for one round and then took off running! They got in a whole extra lap then us...doing about 3k today!! I think I may have a couple of track stars on my hands!
And because that just wasn't enough for the day...apparently....we headed off to the apple orchard after lunch! The ride was gorgeous!! The colours are AMAZING this year!! The trees are just magnificent....a bit distracting while driving! ;) But we got to our destination and in the sweltering heat (it is September...right?!?) we road the train to the trees, picked some delicious fruit, enjoyed the sights, tasted yummy apple cider donuts, and took a tired but happy crew home!
Well...it's about 8:00pm now...and like I said, I'm beat! I've got my pajama's on, the kids are in bed and hubby just finished up the dishes! So I think I will bid you all goodnight and tell you to start thinking of the month ahead. I'm posting this on Facebook and going to tag a few of you to make sure you join in! I have some talented friends there and I want to see what you can do!
I'll try to get a link up thing on here too....but not sure how that will work for those that don't have blogs....maybe I could do a Facebook page for Homemaker Design and you could post your images there...?? I'll have to look into that!
So yes, a few days to get ready....and for me to figure out the details...and oh yes, buy a lens! That's kinda key....I really missed that 'friend' today!
Okay, I'm excited, I hope you are too and here's to all the photo fun coming our way!!!
