Pazely drew this picture last week when we were outside playing in the sunny warm weather. As you can read, she had a good day.
(Those are my feet. My giant boat-size shoes actually look rather cute there. That's a first.)
Anyway, I'm playing around more with editing my photos into black-n-white pictures because......(drumroll, please).....I will be taking snapshots for possible publication in the weekly newspaper. I say "possible", because if there's room each week, John (also known as the editor, but I've started calling him "Big J". He hates it.), will stick it onto a page, & if not, we'll try again the next week. I'm really hoping it becomes a regular weekly feature. I think people will like it.
The whole goal is to take photos around my county of things that the regular folk might not have ever even noticed. I'll get to go on adventures, discover parts of my new small-town world & share them with the locals. It could be anything. Random & interesting is the goal. I would love it if people actually saw the photos & went out to "see for themselves" or even said to themselves, "I didn't know that was here!" or "That Nikki is one clever cookie." (haha!)
My friend Susan (also known as: my co-worker, a blog fan, the lovely lady who asked me to be a part of The Bridgeport News-Blade, & John's sis) came up with this idea. We had a hoot brainstorming a title for this new feature at 2:30 in the morning. We ended up with "MoCo Photo: a random perspective of Morrill County". (MoCo=Morrill County). We chose a cool font & a cool layout. We think it's hip, edgy & quite awesome! My first photo, which comes out in tomorrow's paper, is a TTV shot I took of a basketball hoop in the church's back yard area.
Though all the photos will not be TTV, I'm going to celebrate by buying another old camera to aid in my artistic photographic passions. Ebay, here I come!
Ok, all together now: Yahooooooo!
