Well, I'm not a professional, by any means. I'm just someone who likes taking pictures, yeah? Before about 18DEC10, I was using my cell-phone to take pictures (3.1 mp). It did a pretty good job; however, for Christmas, I received a Kodak Easy Share which has 12 mp and take much nicer pictures. I'm saving this year, so that next Christmas I can buy myself a much better camera! :) I hope you enjoy my photos.

So, this is my favorite for today. Obviously, there is no reason to explain why it is my fave. It is such a cool picture! It was not manipulated--at least not purposefully. Here is what happened:
I was at our Autumn Bash at the church building tonight. I was at the jumpy house with Pike and a young girl I'd never met before tonight. I believe she may be a member at Warren. There were several people from Warren there tonight.
So, I had just taken a picture of some kids in the jumpy house when I noticed Pike and the young girl kicking a soccer ball back and forth between them. For whatever reason, I decided to get an impromptu game of soccer going, so I ran up to them--the phone still in my right hand--and got possession of the ball with my feet. The three of us began playing together--well, mostly I was running with it and they were chasing me. It was kind of like a soccer-ball version of keep away, yeah?
So, as we were running, I heard my camera click a few times. I was sure that the pictures would be useless because I thought the camera was facing the grass, so what picture would it be taking, really?? However, as you can see, since I was pumping my arms whilst running, the movement of the camera during the "snap" portion of the picture made the image move and--Voila!
Below it is a picture of the tree the way it ought to be seen when you aren't playing soccer while taking its portrait!
