Indie Art Photoblog: BLOGIVERSARY

Tuesday, August 14, 2007


I've been blogging ONE YEAR today! wow - how time flies! I thought I'd post some fun pictures today to commemorate! One year ago, my very first post were some pics of my adorable cousin taken at our family reunion in Utah - and here she is again, exactly one year later! Since she's my cousin, i wanted to do something a little different than the average senior photoshoot, so she let me dress her up and do a little utah-cowgirl-style shoot, ha! I LOVE all the colors of the desert - it's so different than Arkansas, but so beautiful.

Check back this week - I'll be posting everyday [or attempting to!], and I'll be doing drawings for prizes for those who leave comments! i'll announce those tomorrow - THanks for stopping by!

These are absolutely fabulous. And could this girl be any prettier??? I love your color. I love the ones on the train tracks. We have some tracks near us that have been shut down to the trains. I have to get out there and do some shooting.
Oh, and of course, congratulations on your one year blogversarie. I have a blog and I have never written on it yet. How dumb is that? You have inspired me to give it a go.
