Like most goals I set out to accomplish, my goal of 365 picture has change somewhat. Instead of a photo a day, it is being updated to 7 photos per week, which is a bit more doable. The last few weeks have been super busy and I have not taken as many as I would have liked, but here is my seven for last week. As you can see I have been baking for Christmas, these pinwheels turned out so lovely I couldn't resist a photo shoot:

Not far from my house down a rinky dink gravel road is one of Missouri's last suspension bridges. I'm not sure when it was built, but I'm going to guess in the early 1900's, most people are afraid to walk across it much less drive, but I love it! I hope it stays forever!My latest library treasure was a Jamie Oliver cookbook, this was Chicken stroganoff; delicious!
And last but not least, I photographed my God-daughter and her Daddy, which turned out to be one of the sweetest pictures I've taken:

As it turns out, I am not a very consistent blogger. I am so busy taking pictures for my blog I never get around to posting them. Over the last few weeks I have taken more than fifty pictures, most of those were over the holidays and are of my family and friends, which I don't care to post. However, I have taken many others. I always try to teach myself whatever it is that I'm interested in learning, I fiddle with my camera in order to take more exciting pictures instead of adjusting them is Photoshop.
Recently I rediscovered that if I take off my lens and turn it around backwards it transforms into a super macro! I have had so much fun with it, taking pictures of anything I can get my hands on! Whether its book matches, beads or even rocks! The amount of control is extremely limited and its almost impossible to hand hold, but the results are fantastic! Try it sometime. Here are just a few of my favorites:
