2000 photos later...

I got my DSLR (a canon digital rebel xt) last christmas from my husband..and have now taken my 2000th picture with it. 

Too bad my 2000th photo is pretty boring.

thats SOOC (straight out of camera)

a little better after some cropping and tweaking.  but still boring.


I guess I still have a long ways to go.


what is it about snow that makes me want to bake..and pull out the christmas tunes?


its only October for petes sake.


(there was only like, an inch of snow.  and i made zucchini bread.)

for any photographers around, check out thepioneerwoman.com.  Ree has some awesome free photoshop actions to download.  I use her boost action on almost every photo!


(plus her blog is seriously addicting.  even the non-photography stuff)

This is my new quilt project..and my makeshift design wall...we have almost no large wall space anywhere.  and i still have to work around our ancient thermostat here.

I'm having mixed feelings about it so far. I definitely don't like the larger pieces, i think it would be better with thinner strips for the most part.

thoughts?
