On this day in {my} history...

Being that most bloggers talk about themselves.. and why not... it's what we know most about.. I am taking a look at what I was up to on this day in 2010 and in 2009.  Loving the fact that I can just scroll back and take a quick look see!!

2010... looks like I actually finished a challenge.... whoop!!!

So this is it... 31 posts in 31 days.... 
urgghhhh i'm exhausted. I thought it would be a pretty easy 
challenge. Alas not. 

I though "I post every day anyway, piece of carrot cake"
obviously, I really don't post every day, every single day.
I take a break when I have nothing... it's not forced.. not squeezed out
just for the sake... Blog for Blogs sake!!!! 

This has been pretty draining to say the least... but after all I did it!!! I
actually completed the challenge... something is finished, done, 
executed to the bitter end. 

Now, can we all get back to normal around here and have some
pure, unadulterated, blogalicious FUN!!!!!
Yipppity Dooo Daahhh.

and in 2009... I'm not showing the whole post here ... rather showing what I have learned in the past two years about the importance of post processing and churning out a much better picture than that which is sometimes delivered right from the camera.... or SOOC if you wanna be hip 'n' cool.. like me.. heh heh!! 

Ashley had just had her ears pierced on this day in 2009 and I obviously took the picture without a care in the world about tone or white balance or any of that stuff.... so today I worked a little PSE magic on it and voila.... she's looking a lot prettier than she did two years ago!!!

So what's happening on this day in 2011.. not a great deal... just happy with the outcome of that picture and now wondering if I should rummage around and find some other disasters to fix from my archives.... just think.. wouldn't it be great if we could go back and fix some life disasters like this... hmmm. Happy last day of August y'all.... see you in September!

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I'm just starting to fall inlove with my camera and photography. There's so much to learn......
I love your idea of going back in time to see what we were up to last year or the year before. Problem is, I'm such a slacker with blogging, I'm not even sure I blogged at all last Aug! I should check out my archives.
Love you blog & your photography!

Don't you just love PSE? Great effects! Now I need to go check out last year's posts myself.

I know, sometimes I look through old posts and wonder if I should edit some of the older photos, too. :)

I suppose it would be nice if I had the kind of blog where I could go back and see where I was in 2010, but chances are I was in my apartment.

Oh I have some days I would like to go back and fix...hoping that time and those "rose coloured glasses" everyone is always talking about will help with some things:)
