Fun with Photos

Tomorrow was supposed to be the day that Evan flies home from Basic Training, after graduation in the morning.  Josh and Braden drove to Fort Jackson today in order to surprise him for "Family Day," and they are attending his graduation tomorrow.  Anyway, Ev was supposed to fly in tomorrow night at 11:30 p.m., which late hour, I will admit, I was not that excited about.  But then Josh was able to arrange for him to return to Tennessee with him tomorrow, and then he and Braden will both fly home together on Sunday.

:-(

So now I wait for 3 more days... Sigh...

Actually, even though I was looking forward to it, I can wait 3 more days (after all, what's that after 10+ weeks?), and I'm really glad that the brothers are all getting time to be together.  With the way they're all growing up so fast, this may be one of the last opportunities they have for this.

Anyway, I will continue with the photos from our trip in the next day or two, but tonight I wanted to show off a few more from my photography class, which also fit nicely with the "Everyday Things" assignment for You Capture, along with a few I've played with in my favorite new toy, Adobe Lightroom.  What an AWESOME program, and I've barely scratched the surface! Most photos are SOOC, including the first photo of both the flower and the truck.  The ones I've played with are fairly obvious :).

I would love to hear some feedback...


And finally, by popular demand (Nicole :)  )

I love your pictures. My favorite is the very first one that is straight out of the camera! You are going to have SO much fun with lightroom. I have never used it but I have heard the BEST things about it :)
