The Camera That Shot Me

(Title credits to my cousin.)

Yesterday afternoon I wanted Allison to take a picture of me for my about page that I’m revamping, and Allison wanted me to take pictures of her for… something. Anyway, I had a lot of fun using Allison’s dSLR (anyone want to give me a dSLR?). She also took a few pictures of me after the about pictures, so I’ll have those here too.

First up, here are the possibilities for my about page photo. I’m trying to decide which I like best.

When I took pictures of Allison we first went up to the bank barn and took some pictures by the bales. These four were taken while Allison was adjusting the settings on her camera.

After those pictures we migrated down to the cotton barn. We brought some zinnias and The Mysterious Benedict Society (or rather, The Extraordinary Education of Nicholas Benedict with the dust jacket of the MBS) as props. We go a few photos of my hair flying around, and I got quite dizzy from shaking my head so violently. XD

We had to go eat supper after this, so when we went back out in the evening it had gotten darker. But we still got a few good pictures. 🙂

  6. Those pictures were beautiful! I don’t seem to be able to choose one, and since your page is done I don’t suppose it’ll matter. 😉 I loved your bunny pictures- I want one, EEK! Oh, the title’s quite creative, by the way. 😀


  7. I love the photo if you looking up over the book, with the pages facing the camera! You’re very photogenic! And, I especially love that NeedToBreathe Calender? It appeared to be! 😁
