Dead



Scott Bulger has a photography challenge on his blog to photograph something "dead" and turn it into art. Well, with the kids all being home today (keep in mind I'm posting this on Tues for it to run on Wed, love the blogger magic post) I told my 2 older kids about it and sent them both on their way with cameras in hand in search of something to photograph. Part of my reasoning was to get Ashlyn and Christian to do something together and like it and get along. Well, they ended up fighting about 5 minutes into it so I didn't get much from Christian but the above photo is something Ashlyn did. I think she did pretty well :)

Now meet the photographer:



My beautiful daughter Ashlyn. I can't believe my baby girl is 14 and a freshman in high school already....how time flies...

When you read this in the morning, we should have a brand new president!

  4. Ashlyn is very creative, and beautiful. She has a lovely smile, and reminds me of Carrie Fisher in "Star Wars" I can't remember her name in that movie, someone help me out!

    And yes they do grow up to fast.

  12. I do like her photo, especially the artsy angle.
    Now, there's a dead mole on my back steps that one of the cats brought up, but I don't think I can make it artsy! Better go get the shovel instead of the camera.
