A Photographer

I keep saying I'm not a professional photographer. And I must admit I am a long way from being a good professional photographer. But since I take the majority of the pictures for I guess I am a professional.

Plus, I can hardly pass up an opportunity to take a picture of our animals or some flowers. If I stop what I am doing so I can get this kind of shot, I guess that must mean I am a photograper. :-)

You take some wonderful photos, Maryann. I'm quite impressed. And I loved the story about the tea party. I like the angle of why they picked the particular hats they wear, especially the lady who uses hers to cover her "helmet hair." Too funny.

Thanks, LuAnn. I guess I have to start thinking of myself as a photographer. Feels weird. :-)

I remember when the owner of first hired me to cover stories and handed me the camera, I just stared at him. When I worked for bigger publications in the Dallas area, I always had a photographer who went with me, so I was the writer, someone else was the photographer. I liked it that way for all those years. :-)

Beautiful roses. Are they yours? Do you use a fancy digital with one of those huge lenses attached? I've always wanted one of those. Mind you, I wouldn't have a clue what to do with it.


Maryann Miller said...

LOL, Helen. I wish I had a fancy digital with all the bells and whistles. I have a basic Canon Powershot that belongs to

And, yes, the roses are mine. Growing happily with some compost made of coffee grounds, eggshells, manure and old hay.
