Shooting from the Hip

August 13, 2008


This is King Meemer and his mama, who is politely telling me to get lost with my camera.  Actually it was something more like, “you’re obnoxious,” but I was undeterred.

I tried to catch miss fussy, (I say that with the utmost love and affection,) without her knowing by shooting from the hip.  Meaning, I didn’t raise my camera to my eye, I shot it from waist level.  But that girl has good ears I tell you!  She could hear my shutter ten miles away.

Isn’t she beautiful even though she’s reprimanding me?

Anyway, have fun and try this approach to get all kinds of interesting shots.  When I do this, I can’t wait to get home and see what I’ve captured.   It’s always a hoot!

And before Kimmie gets a hold of me at church tonight and strangles me after seeing this photo of herself on my blog, I need to tell you she has poured out her heart about their upcoming adoption in this post and since I could never do it justice, you must read it for yourselves.

    Don’t kill Hallie over this photo! You look great and at least she didn’t shoot one of you with your gut bulging through your shirt at the ocean!

    If you need proof, I’m happy to send you a link.

    Hallie-you are a gem…you’re lucky that sweet Carrie stood in the gap for you…guess I am going to have to stand farther away from you when you have ‘the camera’…hey, so I know, how far is your zoom lense good for on that amazing camera of yours.

    Carrie-I am so sorry…did she post it, what am I thinking, of course she did or how would you have known …she’s so sneaky! Your beautiful, know it and live it girl.

    I still love you Hallie, but I might trade you for a goat (a milking goat at that) if given the opportunity.

    love and mush;

    I notice that Kimmie seems to have a camera around her neck as well. Would she therefore not do the same thing? Hmmm . . .

    Fun shots! :D
