A run on sentence with a side of insecurity.

I was actually able to focus just a tiny bit on some snapshot-ing this week, and post-editing, which was kind of fun since I've been out of the  habit lately.  I've been contemplating starting my own little Photo Linky with a different kind of challenge (because I thought it up the other night while I was trying to sleep and I was pretty sure there wasn't another photo challenge quite like it, as far as I knew, which actually, isn't very far because I'm not really a photographer and I'm kind of just playing around when it comes to photography stuff....) (I am aware that there are several rules of grammar that sentence just broke, by the way.)  But I think I'm too scared to start it and have no one link up to it.  I don't know if my fragile blog image could withstand it.  OK, that's melodramatic, but still... Would anyone be interested in a snapshot-y linky?  I know I'm not really a photography blog...


Here're my shots for the Sunday Scavenger Hunt:

I shared this on a different blog earlier this week.  We like to eat these chocolate covered peppermint sticks in hot chocolate.  Yum.
Amazingly, I took this photo with my phone, since my husband stole my camera for a while.
Canned Goods
This was an experiment of sorts in lighting.  Meh.
We had a family get together for my brother's birthday today.  His wife got him an amp and he busted out his guitar to try it out.
I had fun with layers.

And for your viewing pleasure, I thought I'd give a little nod to the mr, who was very excited about his photography session this week.  The one he stole my camera for.

Yes, that's right.  mr and the Brother IL went to an auto show (an annual event for them) and I now have significantly more pictures of cars, parts of cars, inside's of cars, wheels, and blurry crowds than I will ever really need.  The one above was my favorite of mr's captures - I think it looks like a car ad, he caught the shadow and light just perfectly.

But if I were going to buy a new car today, out of all the ones mr saw, I would pick this one:

Just kidding.  I wouldn't buy that one today.  There's no way.  If I were actually going to buy a car today, I'd have to walk down the street and check out that rusted '85 Oldsmobile my neighbor is selling.  Let's be real with each other.

These are wonderful - I love the first two shots...and I'm sure people would be interested in a snapshot challenge. I think there is one already, but I'd have to check my photo challenge page.

I'd be interested. And yeah, if I were going to buy a car today I'd have to take a look at your neighbor's car too. Maybe we'd have to arm wrestle for it.

I'm so glad I'm not the only one to have obsessive blog-related thoughts in the middle of the night!!

Your photography is great and you *should* count yourself as partly a photography blog. Really. They're FAB!

Love the peppermint sticks. They are my favorite treats. As a kid I used to go to the office of the apartment complex we lived in and take one. I can't resist them even 23 years later...
