Thanks to all for the kind compliments on the photos on my blog.  I thought I had given credit where credit is due by my little Halloween pic on the side bar over yonder right side.  It says (in case you are confused if I meant your right or stage right or my right) "My mother takes great pictures" as the caption.  By this I meant that my mother, Diane, takes great pictures.  If you find yourself looking at my blog and thinking "that was a great shot" my mom took it.  She took all the dolly shots, any featured shots on the sidebar and any shots that don't look like they were taken with one of those wind-'em-up disposable jobbies.  I just realized today that it sounds like I am having Lily, who is in the Halloween pic, say "my mother takes great pictures" and thus talking about myself.  I am blushing even as I type this.  I would hope that nobody would think I am that desperate for compliments that I would imbed my own compliment into my own blog.  On the other hand, I sort of am (that desperate for compliments), and find myself pleased that so many of you would think me capable of producing shots of that quality.  Also on the same hand as the latter comment (my right hand, not stage right) I do post my sewing projects and other crafties in hopes of hooking a few sincere compliments so I really can't blame anyone for thinking that I was using my two-year-old as a voice for them.  Really, either way it is pathetic. 

Here is the bottom line:

I am a horrible photographer.
I love good photography so I have my mother do it as often as she will agree.
I am secretly glad when people think I took the photos that she took.
But I didn't.

Thanks mom.  Sorry everyone.  I can hold a handstand for a really really really long time, does that earn me any points?

hahaha, Meg, you always make me laugh. I was more impressed by your sewing skills :) although the pics are lovely.

I knew you were talking about your mom and I also know you can do a hand stand for a rediculously long time because I've played hands up stands up with you...it was all that diving I think.

I, too, could tell that you were talking about your mother's talents. But I do have to say that you CAN take a fantastic picture! So ease up on yourself, k?
