365 **Challenge #12** Oct 3 - 9

The objective of this challenge/project is to help everyone become more familiar and comfortable with their camera by attempting to use it daily!

I will post a new theme each week starting Saturday and will continue on every Saturday.

Everyone who wish to participate is encouraged to try and take pictures on a daily basis that will emphasize on that week's theme.

Remember this project is a learning experience. Everyone is welcome to give CC as much as possible. Also include your photo settings.

Have fun everyone!

Three kids in various forms of whimsy today Wink

My boy with my knitting loom as a necklace (he was so funny ... wish I could have gotten a smile out of him when I had the camera out)

Spinning girl

It's not a great shot as far as levels go. It was really dark and even with out my external flash I got a lot of bounce back light from other sources, but it definitley was odd and humorous.
