Creativity Bootcamp Day 7 - Fly


Today I decided to continue with yesterday's assignment of trying something new and outside of my comfort zone - capturing an action shot.  The best of the lot is both the idea of and features my SIL - a talented dancer.  Thanks to her mad leaping skills I managed to capture her in motion (and with her eyes open and a smile on her face even.)


Earlier today I joined my family in a trap shooting adventure -  I snapped hundreds of photos attempting to get a photo of the clay pigeon just as someone shot it.  This doesn't make for very exciting or interesting photos - but it was a fun challenge and it stretched my abilities with my camera.  I managed to capture several just as the clay pigeon shattered but only one in the instant the bullet hit it.  I actually found trying to capture a photo of this more difficult that actually hitting one of the clay pigeons.

A pretty obvious choice for today's song, Tom Petty's "Learning to Fly."  I've felt like this entire Bootcamp week has been me learning to fly - even on those days when I feel like I'm doing it without wings - and then being surprised that I can do it anyway.

That is a great picture of J. she is too cute! And good job on the perfect clay pigeon shot - I think that all mine were taken after they exploded. I did better shooting them with the gun, rather than my camera!

I was going to say goodbye to you - but your mom said that you had to fly out early - Glad we got to see you for a little while!
