This was Mrs. N's suggestions to improve my pics:
As you can see, Mrs. N, I got NO cooperation from the photophobiacs in my family. Only Samantha would support me. The nice thing about her -- she doesn't move. Well, not unless the wind blows her over.

(Note for Mrs. N: Mom took this pic.)
When I put my glasses on and ask Dad what he thought (he wasn't there when I picked them out). He said,"You lNNk like your grandmother!" Of course I have always looked like my grandmother, so it is just one more thing to add to the list.
(Note for Mrs. N: I took this pic by crouching down and steadying my arm on my knee. Nice and crisp and clear -- just the way I am seeing things now -- in FOCUS!!!)
(Note for Mrs. N: I used self-timer on this one.)
Okay, Mrs. N, how did I do?

I'm going for that "Quiet Country-Life Feeling"
When we go to town, things are a little more "hustle, bustle" . . . Hey! Get Out of My Way!!!
Okay, now... Mrs. N, if I were to take these pics. again, what would be a few pointers?
Tip #1: BEWARE of your BACKGROUND
When you are taking a photograph, you become so intent upon the subject (the main focus of the photograph) that sometimes, people forget to look around at the rest of the frame (the entire part being photographed). You may think that this isn't that big of a deal but it really truly is. It's a general rule to have uncluttered a background as possible. Sometimes you can effectively use a background to create feelings of clutter, if that is what you are going for, but often times-the LESS your eye is drawn to the background, the better.

This is my cousin, A***. She was born 10 hours after I was on the very same day (so we think we’re “twins”.) She was born two weeks before her due date, I was born two weeks after my due date. (My parents say I have been perpetually late ever since.) We both love animals, but she is the only one who has pets. We both love the outdoors. We both love to sing. We both love to go to church. We both love to cook, and play board games. We also are different. She is the only one with pets; she has a dog, two cats, a bird, and a rabbit. She likes rock music; I like country and folk. She is camera shy (I’m surprised she let me take her picture); I am not – camera shy that is. She likes roller coasters; I don’t (I hate heights).
This is A***'s lower half. She's got a thing about wild socks.

First, I want to thank my sister, Mama, Mrs. N*****., and Merchant Maidens for helping me with this blog.
I took this picture because I love the way it shows the grass, the ice covered grass, and the icicles.
