Its an A!!!!!

Wooo Hooo! Last night I got the e-mail with the comments and mark for my photography assignment (which is also your mark for the course). Ittts an A "Easily an A" are the teacher's exact words. Whew! I was so worried over this assignment and kept changing things up to the last minute which is why I finally just turned it in. So over the next few posts I'll start sharing the pictures I used with you.

I'm going to start with two of my depth of field shots tonight. These are of one of my clematis that is almost done blooming for the season.

Shallow Depth of Field (see how the background blurs out?)

Deep Depth of Field (see how the background is clear?)

Yesterday despite not being obliged to, because there was no meetings on Tuesday I stopped in at one of the Weight Watchers Centers to weigh in. After my crazy week, all the food I ate prepared by others, and no exercise at all, I wanted to get an idea of how I did. I'm not surprised, and I'm not upset about it either... I gained one pound. So I know what I need to do ... drop that pound this week!

Now we're a couple of days into July... I should set some goals right? Did I even set goals in June? I'll have to go back and look! Nope, the last goals I set were in May. Boy I was busy, I've been religiously setting goals for a few years now. Let's start fresh then :

July Goals
  1. Finish Double Flip-Its

  2. Finish Fair & Square rd. 8

  3. Stitch an ornament

  4. Finish Moonlight Guardian (being ambitious)

Congratulations on your marks for your photography course Dani and such great piics of your clematis to prove you warrant such marks too!

I am sure you will soon drop that pound you gained.

Well OBVIOUSLY it had to be an A! :) Congratulations. Your pictures make me think about taking a photography class myself. But I worry that it'll just give me another hobby to obsess about ;-)

Congrats on the "A" Those are amazing photos. My Father always took lots of pictures of flowers and taught a course on all that stuff. He would have been proud of you!!!
I am!!!
See you soon!

Congrats on the "A" - you certainly deserved it.

Don't fret about that one silly pound - it'll come off quickly now that you're back to a 'normal' routine! I'm still in awe of all the weight you've lost - I could never do it!

BTW, the summer issue of ANPT is on newsstands - you can share your fairies now. :-)

Ohhh, well done honey, and you deserve it! You take some fantastic photo's and it's always a pleasure to come to your blog even if I don't always leave a comment.

Well done again :o)

A well-deserved "A" -- your photos are exquisite. You must have a lovely garden to provide so many "models". Good luck on your July goals. I shall look forward to seeing pictures of your Flip-Its.

Sara said...

Congratulations on your grade, you did wonderful in the class, and from your posts had a lot of fun too. It is so nice when a class can combine the two. The flowers looked lovely, and your earlier progress of your LK piece looked great too, it will be beautiful when finished.

Lovely pics.

Re No4 - its better to be over ambitious than have no ambition at all. Good luck Dani.
