Portrait of a lady










The other day I got to snap a few pictures of my 'ole college buddy, Amanda. She needed a few good photos for her music business and I was more than willing to get a little more practice, despite my lack of a nice camera. I really do love the creativity involved in framing a good photograph. I'm no where near good, but I get a thrill from pulling out my little camera. There's just something about creating something isn't there? Creating with your friends is even better.

It was great to catch up on life as we frolicked through the field. (Ok, it was more like carefully trying to avoid stickers.) We actually had a funny experience with my in-laws alarm, braved the sweltering heat and had silly-stupid fun.

So what have you guys been creating this summer?


PS: Thanks for the love about Compassion's Cry. Keep checking back! We've got more stuff you guys to get involved.

You've got a good eye. A good camera helps, but you can't teach "good eye". ;)

#2 and #9 are my faves. Very pretty girl. Great job!

I have a thing for fields with bales of hay, so I love this! Seriously, I would love to have some photos taken out in a country harvest. You did a great job, Jen.

I love the bunting on the hay bale! I'll have to keep that idea in mind for next summer with my nieces!
