Sunday Still Challenge ~Week 1

This morning over at Nita's blog, Throwback at Trapper Creek I read about a photo challenge she is doing so I decided to tag along. It is hosted by Linda at Just Another Day On The Prairie
and she has made a special blog for this here. This Sunday's theme is pets. Since it is nearly impossible to keep Callie still for any amount I've time I choose to take a few shots of the two rascally kittens, Gretta & Cookie. This is exciting because I am always looking at ways to improve my photography. I have never taken a class because they always seem to be in the evenings and that just doesn't work for me. I've read through many books at the library and I just keep practicing but there is still lots of room for improvement. To date this year I have taken 1750 pictures. Practice makes perfect, right? Hee, hee or is that my mania kicking in again?



Next week's challenge is Christmas lights.


I will catch up on comments later this week. I am calling it a night!

The two sitting on the logs is such a great photo. It looks like something from long ago. Nicely done.
What an all-around talented lady you are!

I too love the one of the two of them on the log. Their eyes are SO big and the black and white really sets it off! I too have wanted to take some photography classes, but I'm still too busy at this stage in life with kids. Maybe one day! :)

Cute kitties. I'm amazed that you know exactly how many pictures you've taken this year. I don't have a clue how many I've taken, but I bet they're mostly chicken photos!

Cute kitties and nice photos!

I see you made soap, that is on my list to try. Are you still happy with the homemdae laundry detergent? I'm almost out of A&H so I need to make some.

THANKS FOR ALL YOUR COMMENTS, I APPRECIATE AND IT WAS GREAT TO SEE WHAT ONE EVERYONE LIKES THE MOST BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO E-MAIL ONE IN.
THE CATS ON THE LOG WON SO THAT IS WHAT I SENT OFF.

LINDA & ED, THANKS FOR YOUR RESPONSE. GLAD YOU HOSTED THE CHALLENGE. THERE ARE LOTS OF US IN BLOG LAND THAT WANT TO TAKE BETTER PICTURES. I HAVE EVEN LOOKED INTO SOME ON-LINE CLASSES BUT I'VE NEVER TAKEN ANY....THOUGHT FOR THE FUTURE.

ALI, I HAVE ADJUSTED TO THE LAUNDRY DETERGENT BUT IT IS NOT ARM N HAMMER. THAT IS WHAT I USED TO USE TOO. THE CONSISTENCY IS DIFFERENT AND A SOAPY SMELL. IT IS SUPPOSEDLY ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLIER AND MUCH CHEAPER. I WILL EXPERIMENT WITH THE OTHER RECIPE I JUST FOUND. I HAVE MADE 4 BATCHES OF THE OTHER AND THEY LAST US ABOUT A MONTH.
