Photo Friday: ReflectionnoitcelfeR

Self Portrait in Elevator
Originally uploaded by Temmerling.
Good lord, I went CRAAAAYZEEEE with this topic. Took way too many bad pictures. Got laughed at by several of my coworkers who kept trying to use the elevator only to find a flustered me caught with my camera up trying to take this picture...

Can I take a moment and tell you all how much I fucking LOVE Photo Friday? I Loooooooooooooove it! I've always wanted to be a photographer but never had a kick in the pants to get started. Now, I am not saying that I am a decent photographer by any stretch of the imagination... but I'm getting better. And I feel inspired. And I'm thinking of taking a photography class.

Right now I feel like I'm in a period of dormancy in so many ways. Yes, I'm growing into a mother. And yes, I'm growing as a partner. And yes, I derive great enjoyment from watching Julia grow and expand. (cutest story I will try to blog over the weekend, but I forgot to upload the pic that goes with it, so it'll have to wait) But in so many other ways I feel dry and shrivelling. But here, here I am cracking and soaking and moving. I am adding a facet to myself that I always wanted to add.

So thank you, Calliope, for your marvellous idea.

Great start with the photo hobby. Thanks for the visit yesterday - and our daughter has the same exact bumbo seat.

Those are all great snaps!
I love them all - but for some reason I just get caught up in the story of the last one. The dress in the window, the woman walking by with her head down. Makes me want to have Short Story Saturday. (by the way, what do you think of that? for real?)

So glad that the photo geeks of the blogosphere can unite!

Short Story Saturday almost makes me want to start a blog.

Trista, this is the chance you've been looking for to make your leap into prose (as if this blog isn't prose . . .).

Ha! We've fooled you into writing prose for months. What do you think of that!

ooooh. I really, really like the idea of Short Story Saturday. I'm listening...
