Loving It!

I purchased my Nikon d7000 about a month ago. I have been shooting at least 4 times a week, and I wish I had time to shoot more!! lol  Oh, well, as my children grow up, free time will increase. :)

Here are some pics I shot today....

Alone






I was shooting in mono and using the manual setting. I edit in Camera Bag for now. I really enjoy shooting nature, abstract, and still life. I'm learning every time I shoot. As of today, I am intimidated to shoot portraits, but I feel every time I shoot is building my confidence. I also just started reading Picture Perfect Practice, as I learn best by reading and trial and error. 
So, I'm in love! It is so satisfying to capture images and share them with others. :)

In A Little Time

I am just getting into photography. I have been snapping and editing some shots with my iPhone4s for awhile now, and getting some good shots like these.

I am planning on purchasing a Nikon d7000 very soon and, given a little time, learn all about it and see what  I can capture!

Discovery

In the past few months, I discovered my Myers Briggs personality type. I can't say enough how this has helped me understand myself and some of the decisions I have made over the past years. Granted, if you are perfectly happy in your life, maybe discovering your MB type would be no big deal, but when you were born from upheaval and continued to carry that dysfunction into your adult life, discovering something of your true self can bring a wash of redemption into your soul.

The later is my own experience, and discovering that I am INFJ has explained so many aspects about how my mind has a tendency to work and why I mesh well with some people but not others.

I won't go into describing an INFJ. There are many sites that describe all 16 types in detail better than I can. :-) The quiz on 16personalities is a great place to start discovering yourself!

Who You Are, poetry

Just for who you are
Not what you do
Or how well you do it
I love you

Your heart is beautiful
Kindness blooms
breeze of gentleness
Blows through your rooms

A quiet chime
Sings out
Soothes my soul
Silences doubt

My darling star,
It's not what you do
Or how well you do it
It's who you are
