I havent been very…pictureous this week.  Infact, I havent taken ANY photos this week.  I wasnt going to participate (I say that a lot dont I?) but I figured that if I didnt this week, then whats stopping me from not doing it next week, and so forth.  Its easy for me to get out of a habit like this…

Its been a really up and down week.  But today we went to the post office, and the books I ordered were there!  Made me smile for sure.  Too bad Im just not “Feeling” the pictures this week – I have an inbox full of great tips that I signed up for last week – and now two awesome books that were recommended to me by a friend.  (Funny story: Did you know the author, Jim Miotke – is on twitter?  I totally did not.  And when I sent out a tweet asking if anyone had ever bought those books before…I was debating between him and another author – I got a tweet saying he was really great, or something.  It wasnt until I had absentmindedly replied…did I realize it was Jim himself.  O_o  Opps!!)

Anyway, all that is to say Im not into my pictures this week but I needed to post something.

(The better Photo guide to Digital Photography, and Digital NATURE photography – both books by Jim Miotke)

And just for fun…

We have Black…

…and white over here

They arent the greatest – although they probably fit right in with the rest of my pictures.  Sigh.

I hope to get out and get some pictures this week – I wont be here this upcoming week however, my sister and I are taking a group of girls on the ferry up to camp on Sunday.  So see you all the week after!

    I know what you mean, in re: to your week… I was excited by the b & w challenge but then found myself not feeling overly ambitious…
