New Blog Look


If you're one of my regular readers...
NO...
You're not on the wrong blog.

I decided to change things up a bit
and bring my blog
UP-TO-DATE
with me at age 54!


I wanted to do this for ages,
but I don't know anyone to take a new
photo of me.

Friends complain that I am RARELY
in any of the photos.

That's because I take them!

I LOVE that because then
I don't have to look good.


And, when I hand my camera
to someone to include me in the photo...
they clam up
and can't figure out how to focus.

So I MADE my daughter
Lindsay take these photos.

She couldn't focus either.


She grumbled and groaned her way through
the shoot and I could just TELL
she wasn't at the right angle most of the time.

This is not a pleasant squat!


That's my old Pentax film camera in the photos.
I lovingly took ALL photos with
that camera when the kids were growing up,
but I much prefer digital now.


Dang, some of these photos are dippy.

Me:  Lindsay, don't shoot me below the
waist because I'm only wearing these white
shorts because they're roomy enough
to squat down by flowers.

CLICK!
(squatty shorts in shot.)


Lindsay:  Just crop out the shorts!

But it's still a goofy shot.


So there you go...lots of pictures of
me that should fulfill you for awhile.

I chose the header photo because I was
really looking at that flower.

I was sweating by the time I got home...
so relieved I don't have to do that again for
Hmmmm...let's say 20 years.

I like being on the OTHER
side of the camera!

Jill you are a natural in front AND behind the camera, love the updated header it looks so fresh. You may have noticed that I hate being photographed hence the lack of pics of me on my blog lol. However my boys more than make up for my shyness as they are a pair of little posers...

Keep up the good work Jill.

jill....the barn i featured yesterday on barn charm was completely open on one end, making the inside shot easy. the barn was on a busy highway so i was not able to get pictures of all sides. the twp has purchased the barn and they plan to perserve it!!

thanks for stopping by!!!

Connie Smiley said...

Nice to get acquainted - thanks for the lovely and fun post.

Mari said...

I am so with you! I'm always the one taking the pictures and I've not often happy with the angle or something when I'm photographed. So - good for you for doing it even though it made you uncomfortable!
