April Random Finds

































1.  This weekend I will attending my nieces wedding in NC.  My niece laughed at all her Aunt's wedding pictures because the style in the 80s was to wear bridal hats.  Well, we will all be sporting hats at her wedding this weekend - even her cousins will be joining in on the fun.  She will be quite surprised - but know that we love her.   Looking forward to a crazy fun weekend.  
  


























2.  Spring has arrived in New Jersey and the first sign for me was the crocuses blooming.  




3.  Second sign of Spring is getting out in the garden.   I order my vegetable plants online from Alabama this week.  The large healthy plants will arrive the end of May ready for planting.  



























4.  Pineapple is one of my favorite fruits and I eat it every day in my oatmeal.  Who knew the skins could be a form of art.  



























5.  I'm taking an on-line photography class through Clickin Mom's on Creativity and Composition.  The class is very challenging.  We spent a week on cropping with the Golden Triangle.  Thought I nailed it with this capture until 10 women ripped it apart with their critiques.  Oh well.

  6. Margie, I would never have thought to add pineapple to my oatmeal, but I'll give it a try since I love them both. The wedding hat party sounds like a blast. Give yourself a Pat on the back for being brave enough to open yourself and your photo up to critique - it's the best way to learn. And in the meantime, I love all of your photos because of the emotional connection - whether they follow rules of composition or not.

  7. Lovely photos and peeks into your life! Yes ... there's nothing quite like sweet, dripping fresh pineapple. Well, I can't say I've every taken an online class where we critiqued one another but it is a good way to learn ... if you agree with them. Remember, it's all in the eye of the beholder.

  11. The crocus are lovely. The way you have the light falling on them is perfect. I laughed at the 10 critique. Been there done that!
    Thanks for the cod recipe. We tried it and it was delicious.
    Happy camera days!
