Happy Holidays

The holidays are well upon us and that means that we are busy busy busy. I missed a PHOG entry last week due to my participation in my first 2 art shows. Not bad experiences. Time will tell if they were successful.

This weekend, we went to my family holiday party on Long Island, NY. Since I had the camera, I didn't make it into any of the pictures. I'm still having focus issues with the D200 - especially in a night time party situation. But I got some fun expressions - especially from my immediate family.

What a cute elf ...

... and deer.

I know that they must be saying ... here she comes again with that camera ... will I ever be safe? ... probably not.

Whatever holidays you are celebrating ... may they be happy. Until next week.

This week I've been getting ready for the Girls Night Out Club (GNOC) Holiday Cocktail Party and the Northern Virginia Artists League (NOVAL) Holiday Sale. I'll be having a table to display my portrait work and sell things at the GNOC party. And I'll be one of several talented local artists selling art at the NOVAL sale.

I'm working on several series that I will fill out over time. The first is called "Supermarket Flowers." I've taken pictures of flowers that you buy in the supermarket - you know, those flowers that aren't perfect - like those from from a florist - but pick up your spirits. Here are a few of the images from the series.

I continued with portfolio building this week. Here are a few images from a family photo shoot of some of my friends.

Not sure how much photography I'll be doing this week as I get ready for the 2 sales but ... see you next week.
