Photo of the Day: November 21

November 21
ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/30s, 18-105mm lens @ 70mm
So often I'm more concerned with getting a "great" photo that I miss documenting my day to day life.  Like today ... I went to the boys' school to put this turkey and a bunch of feathers up on the bulletin board for PTO.  The kids are able to purchase a feather (or feathers) with their name on it.  The winning class will get a special prize.  And the money raised for PTO will be used towards programs/activities for the school.  The kids who walked past when I was done thought the turkey was pretty cool.  I agree.  :)

During this week of Thanksgiving, I'm stopping to be thankful for the many, many blessings in my life.  (Although I try to do this every day - not just this week.  I just happen to be putting them in my posts this week.)  I'm so thankful today that I get to be a SAHM and am able to do things like this.

BTW, I used the liquify filter on the feathers so you can't read the kids' names.

This is great...clever shot. I love the perspective and the feathers look cook with that trick.

Love the feathers with the "liquified" names! I'm quite thankful to be a SAHM too... but lately thinking it's time to start the road to back to the working world. Now to figure out where to begin...
