Assignment #1: Photograph someone in a glass of water

When your brain is fried and dinner conversation gets boring, you can always photograph your friends in a glass of water! I am thinking about offering up a creative photo assignment each Monday that you could post on your blogs. What do you guys think? You can list a link to your post in the comments.

In other news, I was sad to have missed Blogher this year. I am living vicariously through Jen Lemen and all of her wonderful tales from the weekend. She and Magpie Girl along with Krystyn Heide led a workshop called "It's not your size, it's your passion that matters." These remedies for small blogger blues is so inspiring.

Were your ears burning the entire weekend of BlogHer?? You and your necklaces were all the rage and you weren't even there. That's the kind of power you hold, you superhero you! I missed you but wore my necklace all weekend and you were so on my mind!!

The comment I posted yesterday seems to be lost - if not: sorry for the double post!
Just wanted to say that I absolutely love that you are doing assignments now (thank you!). Here is my #1: http://inside-my-shell.blogspot.com/2007/08/assignment-1-photograph-someone-in.html

Thanks for the props! I'm sure my hits are through the roof as all your lovelies come for a visit at my place. :-) Jen and I are cooking up lots of ideas for small is beautiful bloggers and hope to have a special suprise for them up in the blogosphere in about a week.

Lots of love from my virtual pad to yours.

I am sorry you missed Blogher too! In a way it was like you were there... everywhere I turned I saw your necklaces. It was like an unspoken sisterhood connected everyone who wore them.

I really like the wavy lips...I think I should have gotten the glass closer to my subject's face but he wasn't following orders very well...oh well. There's always next week, right?

Hi Andrea (and all you lovely Superheroes out there!),

Just wanted to share that I thought about yesterday's post -- and the comments it generated -- while I was walking home from work last night...

... and it occured to me: who would want a mother who thought she was perfect? Who didn't have the capacity for self-reflection? Who wasn't open to growing and learning from the process?

How many of us have been blessed with a mother who continually engages with her own flaws and shortcomings -- and ours -- and dares to love us and her self anyway?

I wholeheartedly agree with all the wise souls who wrote in yesterday: love is what you are giving your child. Your little boy will appreciate your capacity to question and challenge your self as he grows into his own story and wonders at his own marvellous imperfections.

As always, thank you for sharing. Thank you for being open to receiving too.

Same as Josie...

Also, Camie is the milk bones model! I am laughing so hard because I actually have those biscuits at home and a few weeks ago my family and I were looking at the box and were like, how do you get to be on the box, I wonder if me and Daisy (my dog) could get on the box? That is such a funny thing to me.
