Okay - so has anyone else been singing Pat Benatar's
"Hit Me With Your Best Shot"
this entire week or is it just me?
I will not put you though the You Tube version of this 1980's classic just in case you're in the free and clear!
Sally's prompt this week for the
Focus on Life: 52 Photos series was:
Week 39: Your BEST Shot
I snapped lots of photos of jewelry this week in hopes of getting them edited in time for Stringing Magazine's Spring 2014 issue deadline of the 26th and was going to use one of those (a sneak peak anyway) for this week's prompt.
But that didn't happen because my pics turned out pretty bad (crappy is a much better word to describe them actually!). So needless to say, you won't be seeing those and I didn't send them via email to Stringing either (yes, they were that awful!!). I was pretty upset with myself to say the least!
And let's see, I failed to capture the pretty sunrise the other day, I spaced out trying to get a pic of a friend who popped into town from Georgia to have dinner with us Thursday night and the pics I took of my son before he left for Homecoming to pick up his girlfriend turned our poorly too because I tried to take them with my iPhone,...and we all know how many times I've successfully used THAT as a camera!
Oh, and of course the pic that I had the waitress take of my friend Michael from St. Croix (whom I hadn't seen in years, and yes, it was his father's funeral I attended this week) and Jackie and I at breakfast last Saturday came out blurry, too (I guess I'm not the only one who can't use my iPhone camera properly!).
So, despite all the friends I reconnected with this week and the positive things that did happen recently, I was in an ugly 'funk' late Thursday night. Just one of those weeks, I guess.
But, I got up today (Friday) and decided to shrug off the icky-ness and adopt a positive mind-set and get on with things!
I didn't touch my camera because I didn't want to jinx anything, so I'm giving you a photo that I consider one of my "Best" shots ever.
It reminds me of happy times up in the mountains, taking nice walks (snapping pics that actually turn out) enjoying nature, relaxing, being present and living in the moment and not stressing myself out over stupid things that really aren't going to matter or even be running through my head when I'm laying on my death bed!
Hopefully everyone else had a productive and happy week and was able to capture some great photos!
I'm going to hop on over now to The Studio Sublime and enjoy all the other BEST shots! Join me?
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Letting Things Go, Taking Stuff In, and Getting Back To 'ME' At My BEST!
