Weekly winners: December 30 through January 5


This is my first foray into Lotus' Weekly Winners game. Now that I have my totally groooooovy camera, it is time for me to get beyond snapshots and into IMPORTANT photography! (Oh yeah. That's me. Important photographer.)

So ... here we go:

Decadence:

Oh there is nothing better than a pedicure!


Guitar girl:

Love her. Totally.

New Year's kiss:

(Yes, Roo-girl took this one, but still ... the old farts still got it!)

New Year's whoop-di-doo:

(I won't tell you how many shots it took to get that one with the confetti! Shh. That's our little secret.)

Two versions of blowing snow:



or this way:


Which one do you like? The color or the black and white? I can't decide.

Great pictures. The confetti shot is amazing.

Sarcastic Mom (aka Lotus) said...

I'm so glad you're playing! Those are great shots.

The guitar girl one, for reasons I'm not sure of, I really love.

:-D

Of course, if you know me, you know I LOVE nature shots... so the last ones make me all *sigh*ish. :-)

The confetti shot - I can only imagine how long it took, the question is, how many did you have on hand? :)

secret agent mama said...

Love,love,love them! I especially like the "old farts" that still got it!! But, I reaaaaaaaaaaaally love all of them, Janet!

Suzanne said...

Great pictures! I like the blue blowing snow best. :)

Kaycie said...

I love the shot of the girl and the guitar. She is a doll.

The color shot of the snow is prettier, I think.

Really great shots. I'm asking for a new camera for my birthday. I may have to come back and ask you for tips!

And I like the b/w the best of the snow shot!

Karly said...

I vote black and white. But, Guitar Girl is my favorite. She's beautiful.

Mr Lady said...

You know why you never would have thought to take puke pictures? because You are a better mom than Me.

I like the color one, and the guitar is for sure my favorite!

LSM said...

I like the black and white snow picture best. Great shots all around, though!

lisa's chaos said...

B&W is my vote! :)

frog ponds rock... said...

I cant decide either.. I like them both equally...

great photos all

cheers Kim

merrymishaps said...

I love the blowing snow shot, and while both versions are great, I kinda like the color one ... so subtle, it's almost like a colorized black and white shot.

Kelly said...

I can't decide either. They're both really, really good.

courtcourt said...

I vote for black and white! Great photos!

L^2 said...

Great photos! I love the confetti shot and the last one too.

I like the blue one better :)

Tink said...

I like the color shot of the two the best. But that confetti shot is by far my favorite!

American Girl said...

I'm such a sucker for black and white...great shots!

dawn224 said...

Black n white - but then I'm dreaming of the pedicure...

jientje said...

I agree with Lotus, I love the guitar girl, she looks so tender, so fragile! Great picture!

Oh, and I definetely prefer the black and white snow shot!

Robinella said...

Very nice. I don't know what weekly winners is about but I likey your photos. I like the b/w photo. I might have to admit you into the Robinella Photography club.

Jeanette said...

Great pictures! Love the snow shot, the confetti and the toes in the water. Makes me want to get a pedicure real bad!!

Julie said...

Okay, I am so impressed with the confetti shot! Makes me want to try it myself. Hmmm (wheels turning in my head)....

I love the b&w one. Now I am off to see if I can find out what kind of camera you got and what this whole Lotus thing is you are talking about.

Jenni said...
