Giving it a Go!

So I thought I'd give this daily challenge thing a go - for me, I've chosen Her Space | My Space. Mainly because it's so simple. A word. A photograph. Every day life. No complications. I wanted to be able to add something significant to my blog daily as well as my own wafflings about my life. Taking photos is another good way of documenting my life. So it's win win all the way round.

I have to warn you though - I'm not a photographer. I love my camera - Canon EOS 350D and I love taking photographs but I'm not a photographer and don't want to be one. To me it's all part of my desire to create art - digital art. I love this medium. My camera is just another tool for me as is my precious Photoshop, fab fast PC and other digital goodies.

So yeah. Gotta give it a go.

This is my Thread photo. I have lots of thread. Tons of the blooming stuff. I'm a crafter doncha know?! But the first thing I thought of was my little trinket box I got for Christmas from my beautiful friend Dana. It's a Boyd's Bear collectable and is perfectly chosen for me. I was so excited to recieve that in the post. Dana is an online friend of 10 yrs and so cool that she knows me that well!

This little fella sits on my window sill right next to my desk.

Hi Di! and welcome to HS:MS. You'll soon be hopelessly addicted.
Your first photo's great. Don't worry about not being ' a photographer...' most of us aren't. I've learnt a lot from everyone on here though.
