We learned a new technique in my photography class and I had a chance to practice today. Panning is the term given when you "freeze" a moving object, but the background shows the movement. I had so much fun with this!


I used shutter speed 1/40 f-stop 32 ISO 200. Did I mention how much fun this was??
On another note, I think I totally lost my mind today (what was left of it, anyway).
Michael has been asking for some time now that I go blonde.
Beach blonde. Platinum.
Jessica Simpson or Carrie Underwood blonde.
And today I gave in.
Don't know what in the world I was thinkin'!!!!
When I walk by a mirror, I have to look twice because I still don't recognize myself.
Not sure it's me...but my man is thrilled.
When I get up the nerve, I'll post a pic.
Now, some of you who visit this blog are bound to have some
"crazy hair" stories. So...let's hear it!!
Leave you story in the comments!


  1. I love this picture, makes me want to take some classes! I have a great camera and don't know how to use it!
    Oh, and I love it when I'm more blonde! So does the hubby!! I recently went darker and dont like it!

  2. That is an awesome picture!

    And I would have to say my craziest hair story is when I let YOU highlight my hair and it came out ORANGE!!!!! Remember that?!?!?!?!?

  3. Sister....not sure I like the way you implied "I" did all that...glad you're over it and not holding any grudges!! HA!!

  4. Okay, so I have a nikon D60...don't have a clue what to do with it...what do you have? I didn't ever think about classes online! Great idea...I may have to do that!

  5. I came across your miracles in the making blog and think that it is so neat that you do that! I love the picture on this blog of the house and motorcycle! That is so cool! I was wondering if you had an update on little Shaylee! Her story breaks my heart!
    Have a great week! Erika

  6. Awesome pic. Need to see if I can do that on mine. I need to finish reading my manual so I can use it right :o)
    Would love to see the hair, but I know it takes a few days for it to look normal on yourself.
    I gave you an award today since I enjoy your blog so much! Have a great day.
