What a shocker - another barn! I had to end this with a shot of my favorite subject matter.
Finally, this thing is finished and I don't plan on continuing with it in 2008...it was a little more difficult to keep up with than I originally thought.
All's well that ends well. Happy New Year and have a great 2008.
I drive by this mailbox on my way into town. It's not at a very good location - a curve and blind road - so I've never actually stopped to take a picture even though I've thought of it a billion times. The other day I finally got brave and stopped to take a picture of it - granted it was really early and I knew the road would be practically deserted.
Ok - not actually an old photo, but a modern one made to look old. These two were cheesing it up in a photo booth we made in my classroom. They are working on a project for the yearbook and I just took it one step further by adding a tad bit of age.
I had to play too!

These shoes have just about hit retirement age. They are part of my small theatre costume collection for our high school plays and musicals. I believe they have been used in about seven shows over the years. They have served us well, but are really starting to show their age. I think think the time has come for them to be put on a shelf in my classroom and serve only as subject matter for drawings/paintings and pictures.
A simple dried flower still in the field. I was out shooting an engagement session a little while back, when I stumbled upon this little gem. We were out in the middle of a sunflower field on one of the hottest day of the summer and I just had to take a few minutes to capture some of the beauty around us. I have numerous lovely sunflower images, but this little wild flower stands out among the others. I also used it in a challenge on DPC (Rolling Stones Lyrics).
Another image use for a contest on DPChallenge (Old). I found this jewel at an antique shop in a nearby town. I went looking for something 'old' for the challenge and was head over heals when the camera leaped out at me.....literally.....I knocked the it off the counter and just barley caught it before it hit the ground. Perfect find!
I use this in a DPChallenge contest (Half) back in September. I called it "The Middle Half". I specifically looked for something different for the challenge and wanted to shoot from a unique perspective. I was pleased with the result - I like this image.
