my good friends ann-marie and janelle blogged about doing the 30 Day Photo Challenge this week and i’m jumping on board too! i love taking pics and its a perfect way to get some more practice on my new toy! (…as if i don’t already lug the 5 pounder in my purse everyday….) i will probably take more than the 30 days to finish and i might go out of order just to warn you. but im really excited. and i’m just gonna go ahead and count this as picture number one: a self portrait. this pic was taken right after i got off of the plane in LA a few weekends ago (tired + haggard from a 4 hour layover and a red-eye flight). since i had my 7D shipped to my parent’s house to get in time for our cruise, i told them to bring it with them when they picked me up so i could start snapping away asap. my smile = love at first sight. have a happy weekend! i’ll be moving (+ taking photos).
