Hidden Talent

PhotoStory Friday

Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek

I’ve had some really nice feedback on my new profile photo I posted and I wanted to share the secret.  Well, it’s not really a secret, but it sounds better, doesn’t it?  My husband didn’t take it, in fact, someone over 4 feet didn’t even take it.  Who took it?  My 4-year-old.  I just sat in the grass and he wouldn’t stop clicking, so I played along.  Here’s a sample:

At this rate, he’ll be paying for me to live in the lifestyle I’ll have become accustomed to.


Photo Hunt: Wild

It’s a shame that I had to turn the flash off, it’s not as sharp as I would have liked, but it was as stunning with the naked eye.

We had a great time at the aquarium last month when we visited the in-laws.  There were sharks, stingrays, octopusses, starfish and even rainbow trout.

Photo Hunt: Beautiful

Beauty is completely subjective, but if you allow yourself, you will find beauty in anything.

The irony of the photo is it was taken in Gretna Green, the last town off the M74 bordering England. You couldn’t get any less Highlands than that.

Photo Hunt: What IS that?

Another one of my shots from Scotland? Aye. Apart from being a bollard at the Custom House Quay in my hometown, and apart from looking like seagull nasties, it’s actually paint marking the number. Just goes to show you I’ll distort any PH theme to post a shot from Caledonia.

But just to show I’m not bias *crickets chirping*, here’s a very abstract shot I took in Montana:

I took it at dusk (LUV that time of day for photies!), it’s the gable end of my roof against the deep blue night sky. I loved the colour contrasts.

And this is my leftover £30 ($64.20) from our trip in Scotland. We decided to try and save some cash-ola by flying into Heathrow, but my memories of the M6 were hazy at best (10 hours it took to drive it — with kids). This is the money we withdrew to pay for the £4 bloody toll (over $8). There wasn’t even a bridge to soften the blow!

I miss coloured money. Didn’t have to pull the whole note out of my wallet to see what it was…*sigh*
