Photo Taking Session

Melissa came over this afternoon and our task was to take pictures to be used on note cards to be sold at our quilt show coming up in March. She has one wonderful camera. I had scrounged around and found all kinds of old things that we used to set up little groups of still life plus some that she had brought along with her.

I took some pictures, too, with my Sony and here are a few to give you an idea of how we carried out our assignment. We also got some wonderful old Egyptian wall hangings that Alice has and Melissa photographed those, also. They will make lovely cards, too. Do you think people will buy these? I know that Melissa will get pictures that are much better. However, this gives you an idea of how they will be.

This picture is kind of a salute to my late husband - his shoes, book and wooden toy are in that one. His mom kept so many things and I am eternally grateful to her for that. (Click to enlarge)
