Day 56 - Beauty(s) and The Beast

Not really - they are all great kids! Sarah Kate with Emma and Gabe at the Beauty and The Beast stage show at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Day 52 - Port Orleans

I know it's passe' to do a white vignette these days, but that's what I cut my teeth on back in the day when I had a darkroom instead of a Mac.

Day 50 - The Color Red

Once upon a time, I took a photography class.  Digital was unheard of at that time, and we had photo assignments each week that required us to shoot slide film (yes, slide film - very unforgiving and impossible to tweak).  One of the weekly assignments was to photograph the color red.  My red photos H-O-N-K-E-D.

Flash forward to February 2011 - I decided to try my hand at the color red and see what I got.  This shot isn't SOOC, but it's very close - tiny bit of punch and a little vignetting added, but that's it (other than the watermark, of course).  I don't generally "do" macro, but I like this one.

Day 45 - Rock On

Consider yourself warned: My photos this week are probably going to be pretty uninteresting. Mr. Andi and I are on vacation, sans kids, at Walt Disney World. There are tons of things to photograph at WDW, but dealing with my camera, iPad, etc., is more than I'm willing to do on our 15th anniversary trip. So therefore, today I give you...an iPhoto picture of a picture.

Day 42 - Look What I Can Do!

A new trick for mom and dad before they leave to go out of town.  Nana doesn't know what she's in for this week.

Day 37 - The Second Child

You know you aren't the firstborn when you pick up the dog's chew toy and your parents wonder why they never thought of using that as a teether before.
Another technical disaster, obviously, but I'm posting it because it makes me smile.

Day 34 - Please Look At Me

Let me just start off by saying: this picture honks. There is absolutely nothing technically good about it. It took all of my limited PSE knowledge to get it to this point (i.e., the point where I would actually post it). I didn't even want to put my watermark on it.

But...I am sharing it, anyway, because it makes me smile. Nathan was in his pack 'n' play this morning trying to get my attention. He kept pressing his little face and hands against the mesh, and I kept laughing (so he kept doing it). This photo represents my ordinary/extraordinary life.

Day 33 - 2/2 Time

Back in the days when I had a darkroom instead of broadbrand, I used to shoot in black & white and handtint, often selectively.  Thought I'd try my hand today at an old technique achieved in a new way.

Day 32 - The Girl

Apologies if you've been trying to access Days 28-31 and having trouble.  I've migrated to a custom domain (www.violetfilmphoto.com) and there have been a few hiccups during the transition.  Everything  should be working fine now.
