I’m finally feeling human again and since the kids are out of school AGAIN today, I thought I’d park them in front of the cartoons and update my blog. Great parenting, I know, but it’s only 7:00 in the morning. I have all day to get them moving.
As I said before, Tara, over at Sticky Fingers, photo tagged me. The rules are go to the folders you keep your digital pictures in, find the fourth folder, look at the fourth picture and tell about it then link back to who tagged you and tag four more people. I’ve done this before, a while back, but I wasn’t organized enough to do it right, so I just picked a random picture. We use a Mac and all our pics are in iPhoto and we don’t normally create separate albums – I know we should, but we don’t. A few months ago, we created albums for Disney, Christmas and pictures that Monkey had taken with her camera. That was my fourth album. I hadn’t gone any further than that.
So, the fourth picture in the folder was this one:
She went around the day Trey gave her his old digital camera and took pictures of EVERYTHING. She staged her toys, followed the cat around, took goofy pictures of me and Trey, photographed photographs, went outside and took pictures of flowers and weeds and plants. I think she took 50 pictures that day. In the space of about 30 minutes.
Here is a small selection of her portfolio.
However, I realized when I opened up Photoshop, to add my watermark to her pictures, that in Photoshop, everything is in folders already. So I was able to go through and (sorta) follow the instructions. I say “sorta” because there are some pictures of family and friends that I won’t post because I don’t have their permission and so forth, so I had to fudge it a little. This picture is actually from the third folder, the fourth folder in that folder and the fourth picture of that folder.
It’s an old one and I’m not really surprised I landed on it. First, it’s a good example why Monkey is called Monkey (she was a year old when this picture was taken) and it was taken at my Great Aunt’s farm in Pennsylvania. She just passed week ago yesterday. My daddy’s side of the family has a reunion in Pa. every year. We try to go every year, but haven’t been in the last three years for a variety of reasons, so she never got to meet Little Man, but she enjoyed Monkey. She still maintained a small vegetable garden and she had a wildly crazy boarder collie that would chase balls all. day. long. She was a spunky ol’ farm girl with a clear head and a kind heart. She will be missed.
Now, for the tagging. Hmmm…. I’m trying to think of who I haven’t tagged in the past so here goes. Tammy, Kathryn, Betsy and Ryan. I don’t know if any of you have done this photo tag before or not. I tried going back several posts and didn’t see anything, so if this is a repeat from the past for you, my apologies.
