Photo Drive...

I took my camera on a drive today. I had heard that in a small township nearby there was an old historic church. I couldn't pass up the BEAUTIFUL day and a few hours to myself to go check it out.




As part of my trip I decided to do a little self-portrait project. Unfortunately as I was pulling together my equipment, I realized my tripod was in the trunk of my Scott's car...which had just left to take Scott and the girls to the last I-Cubs game of the season. Sooooo...I borrowed a beanbag pillow from the girls' room and hit the road hoping I could find safe places to nestle my camera. Here are my 2 favorite shots...



What I discovered undertaking this project is a remote trigger would have REALLY come in handy AND it's really hard to fine tune focus when you are trying to work the role on both sides of the camera.


I'm really uncomfortable being the subject in front of a camera...but I have to say, I had quite a bit of fun this afternoon.


peace
