So I have this lovely $700 digital camera
(I imagine the price has gone down a bit since I purchased mine) that I'm using mostly to take way too many shots of my nephew
(both my kids tend to run from the camera). I try to take some artsy shots but, much like my forays into Legos(r) and Play-Doh(r), I have the will and the equipment, but my grand ideas seem to fall flat. Or get hair in them. There are few things in this world that freak me out more than hair in play-doh.
Anyhow, I had this idea. Well, it was actually his idea
, which he glommed
off of someone else. Is glom really a word? Hey, it is!
Here's how Mike did it:
bq. Think of 3 pictures you’d like to see. Leave whatever you’d like to see in the comments. Things around my house, or whatever… something I can take a picture of easily. Once I have enough requests, I’ll start posting them. If I can’t, or won’t, take a picture of something you’ve requested, I’ll let you know.
That's a good start, but I'd like to open it up a bit. While I'm sure there are some folks out there who are just dying to know what my desk looks like - and I will entertain those requests - I'd also like some challenges. I think I'm pretty good with the camera (see, here
), so send me out on a mission that can get my camera creativity going again. It can be anything from "take a picture of something blue" to errr..whatever your inclination may be. There are somet things I'll draw the line at, and I think you can figure that out. There will be no nekkie Michele pictures. Ever.
So take a combination of Mike's meme above and what I just wrote and give it your best shot, so I can give you
my best shots and
start making good use of the camera (and my amatuer photographer's eye) again.
Use the comments to post your requests, challenges and whatnot.
Whatnot is a really good word, isn't it? Right up there with glom.
Hey, if you have a digital camera, join the fun.
I humbly request that you give me until the end of the week to take all the pictures. I'll put them up in the gallery when I'm done.
