A million years ago (three) I went to a little conference in Chicago called Blogher. I had just started my blog...and I was full. on. clueless.
I remember calling The Bro after hearing The Pioneer Woman speak (who I had never heard of...yeah, I was that clueless).
I said: "How do you take good pictures?"
He said: "You need a good camera."
Shortly there after, he gave me his cast off camera. (a Nikon D100, and a lens, I don't know what kind) (...and before you go giving The Bro major points for giving me this camera...he did owe me bucco money from a ski trip we had taken together. He's nice...but not too nice;P)
I tried for a short while to take good pics. Really, I did. Straight up...the darn thing was SO much smarter than me...and like many things in life, my follow through left much to be desired:(
Cut to this week....
I got asked to be a speaker at Gleek Retreat! Say what? Yes...I am speaking:O (Go check it out, if you're in the Midwest, you should go) How cool is that? (At least a little cool, right?)
Anyway...they needed a profile picture of me:/ I don't know about you, but for me...this is not an easy task. I never take a good picture...NEVER:( Have you noticed the profile picture for this blog? It's from Halloween, and I'm wearing a cowgirl outfit...I just don't think that's a proper profile picture...is it? I don't know *sigh*
What do I do next...you got it...I dug out The Bro's cast off camera.
Holy found a time machine Batman! There were 100 photos I had taken of the kiddos from two and a half years ago! We are talking little gems like this......and this......and this...OMG...where have my little babies gone?!? *insert panic attack here*
Any way...I handed Husband the camera...and just like ripping off a band-aid, I made him take the shot.Is this awful? Is it a passable profile picture? I can always take another one...or two...or three thousand:P
I look at it, and all I see is Picasso face. Do I have Picasso face?
I don't know...perhaps I should just stick with the cowgirl pic:/
