Hmmm … let me see. Spent the day at the library with the kiddo yesterday. Got a good bit done. Made a quick side-trip to Tuesday Morning. They had Breyer model horses in their inventory and my girl had to see what they had. $20 later there’s another addition to her ever growing herd … LOL
Today I measured windows for a possible client, went to lunch with my guy and our girl … this evening our photography class met at the college to take advantage of the light from the setting sun. At lunch, we ran into one of my instructors and he was taken by my girl’s HUGE blue eyes. So he told me I should bring her along to model for us. This tickled her immensely. She enjoyed being the focal point of 20+ budding photographers and handled it quite well, posing as our teachers asked. Here are three photos I took of my girl, plus one of a fountain near the entry of the college. I’m fairly pleased with the photos that I took, but I am VERY excited that my instructor is going to give me a CD of photos HE took of my daughter. I saw some of them on the preview window of his camera and they ARE fantastic. Someone made a crack about free photos and he quickly set them straight, saying, “They’re not free, she worked for them!” I appreciated that HE appreciated Jami’s efforts to do what they asked. She’s only 12 and she listened very carefully as they told her to “tilt your head this way … now move your chin a tiny bit to the left. Good, okay now, look over this way …”
It’s not easy, and I was very proud of her. Eddie’s photos of her are incredible. I may post one or two of them here, with proper credit of course, for your enjoyment.
Have a good one –
Oh, and “P.S.” — I’ve decided that my instructors are actually pretty nice guys. I don’t know what happened there at the beginning … if I just needed time to get to know them better or what, but I’m actually growing somewhat fond of them … LOL
