Amanda's Mentoring Workshop...assignment 1

So I had the hardest time taking a simple photo of a piece of fruit and Amanda makes you limit yourself to only taking 5 photos (and I'm the dictionary definition of an over-shooter) so it really makes you think....here's my pineapple...don't laugh, I'm darn proud!

This one just makes me giggle (sad huh)? It looks like it's popping a squat in the grass, just hanging out, sunbathing.....I should have put an umbrella friuty drink next too it......oh, I think I need therapy!



Grady thinks I should have put a fork in this one and flip it upside down....his take on the upside down pineapple cake I guess! =) LOL!!


When Gracie saw the pineapple this morning, she said, "Hey, that's SpongeBob's house!"


Anywho, her workshop is going to be sooo much fun (and I'm only in week one, session one) and I hope it helps me turn the corner with my photography to where I want to be and what I want to produce. =) I'd recommend it in a heatbeat to anyone that wants to develop their creative side (and no, this is not a plug...most of you guys know I just love her work)! =)
