Just Checking In: An Update & Some Pic

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 


Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted here! Of course, as soon as summer arrived my life became way too busy and of course my internet time goes way down. Thought I would give an update to those who remember me.

The most exciting thing in my life recently was selling my first photo. As a hobby I have been learning digital photography and last month someone actually bought one of my photos! It was too thrilling even if I don't sell anything else! Also, I will be selling my current camera and upgrading to a better camera this fall. I am *very* excited about that prospect.

Rob and I have continued to restore our house and have been going to the cottage as much as we can. Here's a few pics:

We started to build a 8 x 12 shed in the backyard:





We also have planted a few trees to cover a chain link fence in our backyard. Hope they continue to grow since I seem to kill everything I plant!



Every other weekend we have gone to my cottage. Nakita absolutely loves going up there because she has so many new things to investigate. She also has become quite the navigator, giving Rob directions as we drive up ( ):

Once at the cottage, there are a million things to photograph:








Of course, I have to end with a pic of Nakita since she wouldn't forgive me otherwise! An alternative pic of the Emerald Princess




It looks like I will even be busier this fall. I will be going back to school to upgrade some business courses and will be doing major renovation on my house. We just had an architect do some new layouts of our house and will begin to tackle that one room at a time.

Hope all is well with everyone. I really do miss my time here!

Hi Kass. Good to see you and your lovely girl. Great pics, especially the navigation one! Sounds like things are truckin' along just fine , even if it means we don't see much of you

Take care. Drop by when you can.

I currently use a Canon Powershot A80 and will probably upgrade to a Canon G6 this fall.

I sold a picture of an oak leaf that I took this spring after the snow melted. There was a small purple flower growing next to it and an artist saw my pic and wanted to purchase it. She will actually make a painting from my picture for her home.

Thanks everyone for your replies! They are appreciated.

I have you to thank MA! If you didn't give me the positive feedback to begin with I probably wouldn't have continued to pursue photography. Your feedback really meant a great deal to me.

Congrats on your first sale! Do you have a website with more pics that you are selling?


Love to Nakita!! Still a breath-taking beauty!!

I love the pix, especially the one of Nakita and Rob in the car! I had a Siamese who loved to travel with his paws on the dashboard, taking it all in.

Kass!!! You're quite talented! Those pictures are GORGEOUS! Actually I'd like you to email me or give me a link or an online portfolio of yours. Craig and I are looking for things to put on our walls, and I might be interested in purchasing one of your photos if I find one I really like!!



Nakita steals my heart, as always! Great to see you girl!
