5 on Friday

1:  This week we went to the beach.
Okay, you caught me.  We didn't really go to the beach.  We live in a completely land-locked state.  No beaches near us.  Kiera and I just played in the driveway with the water hose.  Not quite as exciting, I know.

2:  We did go to the lake though.  We literally got there at sunset.  This gave me the opportunity to try something new.  Silhouettes.
3:  Can laundry be dramatic?  It isn't even MY laundry... and it is no where near finished.  Probably another 3 days of washing. *sigh*
4:  I love the actions by The Coffee Shop Blog!  They have some great ones and they are all free!  LOVE IT!
5:  An idea for a really cool picture entered my mind the other day.  Camera + Cheerleader = really neat motion photo.
Believe it or not there is a cheerleader stunting all the way across the yard in this photo.  I couldn't see her either.  It was a good idea... guess I need to study on it a little.  I did manage to get some good flip pictures though.

Kiera is a cheerleader in training.  Her aunt is teaching her how to be a flyer.  Of course, her daddy has been training her for this since she was 6 months old.
There must have been a bird.

That was my week... how was yours?


  1. Awesome photos. Love that silhouette.

  2. I love the silhouette! I can't seem to ever make my silhouettes work!

  3. Tara,
    Click It Up a Notch has a great post about shooting silhouettes. Here is the link...
    I hope that this is helpful to you. Good luck!
