resolution fun

 

 

 

Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? Is resolving to more fully appreciate red wine a resolution?

I resolved to continue to get more familiar with the controls on the big camera this year (how many years have I said I was going to do this?! how dim am I when it comes to my dslr? don’t answer!) The mighty Nikon presents me with challenges and I’m certain I can overcome them.

Thought I’d try one of those annoying ‘photo a day’ challenges. The one I’m participating in (I’ve made it to day 7…yay!) is on Instagram. The hashtag is #fmsphotoaday. I’ve had fun, but I’m not sure I’m learning the Nikon because it’s so easy to snap an image on the cell phone. Thought I’d show you a few of the Instagram photo-a-day projects.

Photo challenge of the day….round

Square…exciting photography prompts, no?

heh.

In the process of trying to be all creative for my photo challenges, I discovered a photo editing app for my Android called Pho.to Lab PRO. For a measly $3.99, I’ve been able to create blockbuster images such as these:

I’m the groupie in the van. If you don’t recognize these hunks…you are old and out of it.

Made the cover of Senior Maxim. This might have made me wet my pants a little. Luckily, Depends undergarments are big advertisers in Senior Maxim. Got plenty in my swag bag.

Not sure if I’m increasing my camera/photo editing knowledge….but it keeps me amused. It’s confirmed…I have the sense of humor of an 8 year-old boy. Can fart jokes be far behind?

I leave you with this.

All together now…..awwwwwwwwwh. Cute overload! Love these munchkins. Here’s hoping they never discover my warped sense of humor.

You are special. You deserve your own cover. How about Mad?  Wait….I hear Alfred E. Newman already has that gig.

Maxim-y love to all.
