down under

I needed some inspiration for funky photoshoots lately 
since I have been doing brides, seniors and real estate.

 So I told myself to only shoot from the floor and below the hip...without looking thru the lens. 

I LOVE this more than I can tell ya....

it is amazing the perspective the camera has 
when you get out of it's way!!

below hemlines, on the floor and below the belt has alot to offer.
so I dare ya...go explore this...

which came first?

 When you come out from behind the computer screen and gather with a blogger friend to realize that maybe you already knew each other before the blogosphere? Not so much previous life shit, just already knowing you would be friends in real life, minus the blogposts, comments and photographs. 

This was my fifth time to meet and greet an online friend. 
Hashi lives in L.A. originally from Australia. (Yes, she has that delightful accent we love to listen to.) Our similarities include being green and crunchy, vegetarians who love to throw a dinner party, dance, drink red wine and cold beer, neither of us own a TV, we sew gifts for friends, photograph special moments, we are thrift store junkies and unimpressed with fame and fortune. We love our tattered and patched jeans. 

and her name is Deborah
spelled just like me!
(and she is almost ASL certified....one of my fantasies to become an interpreter for the deaf)

so which came first...the blog or the friendship?
Not that it matters...
of course the blog was our connection, but it seems like we already knew each other.
Thank you Bloggyhood

52 Photos Project

~I found it on the ground~
four feet
two generations
twenty shiny toes
two women who love the beach

This weeks prompt for 52 Photos Project

For the past several years I visit my Mom in Florida for Mothers Day. We get pedicures (something I never do in Texas!) 
and take our happy feet for a walk on the beach, 
and photograph them as our Sunday morning tradition!
So what I found on the ground was the ocean kissing our toes reminding me of how precious our moments are together 
and how much I really do love tradition! 
and of course an occasional pedicure makes a good day too!
