The photography bug

It would seem that the photography bug is going around. I'm getting more visitors and some are even coming from other sites that have linked to me because of my photography series. Even Mr. Z has gotten in on it, and he's now taking his own pictures for his food blog.

But watch out, because there's another new photographer on the block, and she's pretty good. You may remember from the post with the pictures of my nieces, that Thing 1 had taken a really awesome picture of Thing 2. Actually, she took a couple but I only posted one because i didn't want to be shown up on my own blog. I also have a really great shot of her brother that she took a couple years ago (yes, she would have been about four at the time). So yesterday I get the cutest email in the history of emails. Its from Thing 1 and it says "I am getting A camra I am ralleay icsidid"

Apparently she's been really into the camera since our visit and has since asked for one for her birthday. it was hilarious to watch her taking pictures with mine... she was so careful, and she took to it quite naturally. i can't wait to see what she does with her own. unless she's better than me... in which case we'll never mention this again.

and sort of on a similar topic, i finally ordered some cards from the printer using one of my photos. the paper has a linen finish, so its not shiny like a photograph. they are quite professional looking, if i do say so myself. I have to give them credit though, White House Custom Color is a most excellent printing company.

I already have plans for a few of them, but I will likely be posting some for sale in the etsy shop at some point as well. I'll be donating a set to AllMediocre for Meghan to use as a prize, so if you haven't been there yet, go check it out. Still waiting to hear back from her, so I don't know how or when they'll be given away, but I'll let you know when I do.

Hi! I know, I know, I forgot all about you. In my defense, I've had two sick kids this week and a fire raging towards my in-laws house, so my mind has been elsewhere!

BUT, your cards are beautiful (as if I wasn't sure THAT was going to be the case) and I'D LOVE to give some away for AM.

I need some stuff that's not baby/kid related because that's what I'm heavy on right now! I'll email you shortly with my ideas!

Gorgeous! And, what a fabulous idea for AM. I want to win. If I don't, I'm going to beg for some any way ;-)
