Photobooth Friday

Here is another site I found and liked how she made her own photobooth in the house. I plan on doing something similar at the wedding in May that I am photographing. Any good ideas how to make it work on a grand scale?  Have a great weekend!!!

Time off

I am thinking about what crafts I want to do over the holiday.  Here are some ideas...

knit honeycomb cashmere scarf (I need to find a pattern for this! Too cute!)

I am thinking 4 days is not long enough to complete all of these projects. Anyone want to do one for me and ship it to me?  Thanks! You are the best! :o) Have fun on your days off and be safe!

Tuesday ponderings

I wish I blogged more.  I follow so many AMAZING bloggers and I feel that I should have at least some small share in that.  I even went so far as to write a list of themes for each day of the week to keep me inspired to write.  I have yet to see if I can follow through with the theme each day.  Next week will be the big test.  I also realized that I will probably need to use others pictures at times to show the things I love because I don't always have the opportunity to take pictures of them, like the Eiffel Tower.  I welcome any comments and suggestions as I try to make this blog more rounded and regular and thanks for all the inspiration!  Happy Tuesday everyone!

Blog World- I love you

I have been following a lot of blogs lately and this week I came upon something that has me so excited!  I had seen a lot of TtV pictures and loved them, but didn't know how on earth you achieved the look. That all changed this week!  I found a blog about the Be Present Retreat in Manzanita, OR.  When we lived in WA we would go there for vacation, so you can imagine that alone sparked my interest.  But then I started reading and they have craft and photography workshops.  The one I was interested in was Through the Viewfinder.  The teacher is Andrea from Portland, OR and the workshop sounded amazing!  I followed links back to her blog and found out that Through the Viewfinder is TtV photography!  OMG!  I spent a while following her links to blogs about TtV and how to make your 'contraption' and so forth.  Let's just say that I am going to be totally hooked on this and I bought my first Kodak Duaflex IV camera on Ebay yesterday.  Here are a few links in case you are interested or curious. Blog on!

What is TtV?

Through the Viewfinder photography (TtV) is defined as taking a picture of any subject through the viewfinder of any camera with another camera.

The bottom camera or viewing camera must be in one piece as its original intention, a camera.
Color and contrast manipulation is commonplace but not essential.


Photobooth Fridays

I love photobooths! Plain and simple. The wedding we are attending in FL in May must have one. They provide such a unique view of people because there is nobody watching to take the picture- everyone is more at ease and usually do very funny things. Hula Seventy has a regular blog post called 'photobooth friday' and I love the idea. What is your favorite face to make in a photobooth?

Happy Weekend, and hopefully you didn't get the windows busted out of your car.

This is a picture I took a long time ago when we got back from South Carolina. I bought this little tea cup at the lighthouse and thought I would share.
