What Is This Place?

This site is a work in progress - much like life, actually. I am an amateur photographer who enjoys playing with my Canon EOS 10D. Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, since I'm really just learning. Like what you see? Encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

My Kind of Perfect

The Theme Thursday for this week is "Perfection," and I have to say I struggled to come up with something to post. What, really, do I know of perfection? Particularly in my photography, since I'm still so clearly an amateur? But then I realized - what, really, do any of us know of perfection? So I thought about what perfect would be, for me, and I came up with this photo:


The shot is crooked. You can see the camera. You can also see the frame of the mirror. But you know what? This, to me, is perfect. This is as good as it gets, seeing three strong women who love each other through everything. My mom and my sister are infinitely special to me, and while this picture may not be perfect, there is perfection in its meaning to me.

Head over to Stacy's to see more variations on the theme!

    Well said. And I would agree. But I think it's a great photo. I wouldn't have even thought about the mirror frame if you hadn't pointed it out.

    That's a great picture for today's theme! Love the shot of you ladies all together. A photo doesn't have to be perfect, so it's nice when the subject is, right? :)

    I like your comment about how perfection is often found in imperfection. Nice photograph to go with the sentiment. :)

    How perfect for this week's theme! I have to admit that I am beyond impressed that you can not only shoot your own self portraits, but also your own group shots! Great job!
