because i am constantly struggling to put myself in FRONT of the camera (then worry later about how those photos might turn out) - you will forgive my indulgence this friday, where i foist upon you, endless photos of me dressed for the above mentioned barn dance our friends hosted a couple of weekends ago.
as luck would have it, another friend (who is also a professional photographer) took many photos on the night, and can i just say (as a woman in her mid-40s) - how GRATEFUL i am for a good camera and excellent [read] flattering lighting!!!
so without further ado, i present you with my still-pretty-good-legs-in-a-skirt...
this lovely lady and i both have 21 year old girls
(that's how we met)
this lady ALSO has a 21 year old daughter
(that's how WE met too!)
true fact: i OWN these earrings
in my defense: these are readily available in atlanta in the early 1990s....
in my own defense: I LOVE FOOD
and taking photos
can i hear an amen for the excellent lighting in this here flickrpicture
this man is also responsible for the very straight teeth my daughters have
and a few taken at the house before we left
thanks again to my BESTIE TARA who has owned and loved this frilled jacket since she was 16!!!
meanwhile back at the barn dance
we even had a professional 'caller' and learned several barn dances
swing your partner
