Photo Hunt #8

Ok. I got through another challenge!  This one I wasn't sure I was going to be able to finish... but I did!  I took all these photos with a little Canon Power Shot instead of my Rebel.  People always tell me that I take good pictures because of my camera so I wanted to show them that it doesn't matter what camera you are using... don't wait until you buy a big fattie camera. Use what you have and make it fun!

1. Hilarious Out-Takes
This cracks me up because I know that she's really thinking about how much she loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches... This picture is not posed.  She truly adores these samiches!

2. Creative Crop

3. Sun Flare

4. Sweet Dreams

5. Work

6. Play
Our little backyard blow up pool.  What a great $10 spent!

7. Cookout/Picnic

8. Transportation

9. Money/Currency
At a very popular restaurant in my town, sticking gum on the outside wall is considered the "thing" to do.  
There are also tons of pennies stuck all over the building as well.

  1. I absolutely love your work - I seriously loved all your shots. The perspective, the color, the emotion behind them is simply beautiful and I believe I'm going to have to follow you to see more! I hope you'll come by to see me too.

  2. Shannie, you did do a nice job, camera and all. I really enjoyed your out take shot once I read the description. That photo wouldn't be nearly as special without the explanation of what was behind it. Very cute. :) Your something blue, purple and old were all great finds. Your creative crop is excellent, as is sun flare ... so soft. But I love currency with the story, too!

  3. Very nice, you have great shots and a great eye. They are all beautiful:) I dont think i can pick a favourite:) Nice work i will keep looking for pics u do:)

  4. I liked your pics a lot ! VERY PERSONAL STYLE !!!! and you had sugar too in borrowed :) Men at work is a CLASSIC !!!! one to do the job and another to watch how it is done :) :)
    Sunflare, transportation, yellow very good pics and Scenic is so beautiful and realistic !!!!!

  5. I love all of your pictures! I'm not sure I could pick a favorite out...although I really do love your sunflare picture & your something old. Fantastic job! I couldn't help but notice you were from Ohio. I was born and raised there, but currently live in NC.

  9. I LOVE your sun flare shot.. it's amazing! all of your photos are great!

  10. You have a mega watt personality don't you? I can tell through your photography. I adore it! Great set. All of them.
