We're Walkin'...

sorry about the whino i appeared to be yesterday...today is a new day and a new post.

Last weekend, because Blissdom was in town, lots of bloggers were here too. Two of those happened to be Angie & Amy from i ♥ faces. They set up a photowalk for Sunday morning in downtown Nashville. Since it's not something that comes around very often, I dressed the kiddos and sent them to church with Pookie & headed downtown. It was cold, very cold. I thought I'd be ok, but after a few minutes, my fingertips were so cold they were aching & felt like they could break off at any minute. I did wear gloves, but thin ones so I could actually work my camera. I got a new camera last week and since our weather has TOTALLY STUNK, this was the first chance I'd had to test it out. Anyway, a group of 30 or so of us met up and walked around downtown taking pictures of whatever struck our fancy. I have to say that this was challenging for me. I think if I'd been some place new, it wouldn't have been so hard, but since I was some where I see nearly every week I struggled...plus I was cold!

I also just prefer taking pictures of people. There was a couple participating in the walk that had their kids with them, and I took more pictures of them than anything else. They were so patient while all of us snapped away.

Besides Angie and Amy, there were some other bloggers at the walk (there were others, i just don't know all of the addresses). It was neat to meet some new people. I can only imagine how cool Blissdom would've been putting faces with all of the blog names. Afterward, we had lunch at Big River before heading home. There were lots of people that were MUCH more creative than me in the photo taking that day. You see the flickr stream here.
