>SPF – I’m BACK

>

After two weeks away from Stuff Portrait Friday, I finally have a day I can relax and do nothing but look forward to the weekend. Until my boss calls anyway. So today Kristine asked us to be a little creative again, and show

1. Wide Open Space
2. Brightness
3. In the Dark
So this was a little challenging! I thought about showing you the wide open space between my ears these days, but that’s a little hard to do. So I could think of no more wide open space than the ocean. Let’s make that TWO oceans. Here is the Cape of Good Hope, at the southwesternmost tip of Africa, where the Atlantic Ocean meets the Indian Ocean.

As far as brightness goes, I love the brightness on my son’s face and in his eyes when he looks up at the sky. I took this picture yesterday while we were watching the planes fly overhead.

In the dark was a tough one. So many cool ways to photograph things in the dark. We had a long power outtage last week on Thursday night while my grandparents were in town. We lit LOTS of candles.

  5. >Great pics. I partucularly liked the one of the candles. I used to love blackouts because we got to light all the candles. Sometimes I wonder that we didn’t burn the entire house down, though.I played, too.Oh, and I have officially given Blogger a pink slip. I have imported my entire site to WordPress, comments and all. I will be posting there from now on. It was easy, it was clean, it was free, and best of all… it WORKS!!!!http://oddmix.wordpress.comYou might want to change the link in your sidebar when you get a chance.
