Thanks to one of the awesome link parties I frequent each week, I happened upon A Step in the Journey, an awesome blog by Laura Beth.
I was just in time to find out about her fabulous new photography challenge, which I signed up for sharpish!
I used to love photography and even now I rarely go out without my camera in my bag. It's only a little compact camera (Casio Exilim Z850) but it has a whole range of features including the option to go entirely manual. Yay!
Week #1 of this challenge is 'Self Portrait'.
As you can see, I decided to go for something a little different! It was a lovely sunny day and I was relaxing a little with a post-lunch cup of tea, watching Alfie (one of my feline friends) rolling around in the sun.
I'd hoped that the sun would be in a position to stretch and exaggerate my shadow a little but no such luck--and within five minutes the sun had disappeared behind a mass of ominous-looking clouds! That's British weather for you!
Looking forward to next week's challenge and hoping my camera skills will improve over the coming weeks--it's been way too long since I took anything more with my camera than snapshots!
