When I started doing the weekly photo challenges I imposed a few extra rules and challenges upon myself:
1) No using previously taken photos.
2) No Photoshopping.
2) No Photoshopping except cropping.
3) Take the time to try out new camera settings.
If I hadn’t imposed those rules on myself I would have shared the picture I posted on my Good News… Bad news… day.
But rules are rules, even if you make them up yourself, and that one broke all three.
So I set out to take another “through picture” (this week, while playing with exposure and avoiding temptations to tamper on the computer) and got an extra bonus.
A photo of Ivy that not only captures the moment but is one of those photos that seems to give a glimpse of the girl she is becoming.
She does have a picnic table on her head, but why would I bother with a challenge if I was already perfect?
