I Love Zaney

I Love Zaney, originally uploaded by hep.

zane entered the town costume contest tonite (theme "Someone from the 1950s"). obvs her choice was easy.

in other news i appear to have seriously sprained my right wrist (or somehow damaged it, i won't know until i can go to the doctor next week). it's not too painful, altho my definition of pain is sometimes strange, but i am mostly highly frustrated at either not being able to do anything, or having anything i do take 10x as long. it shouldn't have taken five mins to type this paragraph for instance. hrgl

Oh my goodness! I love her too! That is fantastic.

I hope you heal quickly, lady.
zane is so awesome.

also she seem to look more and more like you as time goes on.
Holy crap she's gorgeous! And looks so grown up too, wow.
Oh, my gosh. I love her expression in the second photo.

hey unrelated note but i am thinking i should learn to take better pictures because my pictures always suck. I only have a point-and-shoot but my friend has an SLR I might try to practice with too. Any advice on websites that will teach me to take good pictures?
this isn't a website but if you have like $20 hanging around, i thought scott kelby's "the digital photography book" was a pretty decent book. . . there are three volumes (note that they're not versions but actual separate volumes) so make sure you start with the first one. . . his writing style is kind of informal and while his attempts at humor may fall flat, it keeps the book from being a dry read and, in my mind, works pretty well. . . here's a link to a review:

i also dug the national geographic photography field guides. . . this is the basic one:
but they have field guides that deal with specific topics like people, travel, and landscapes. . .

btw, as for "only" having a point-and-shoot, you should note that generally it's not the camera, it's the person behind the camera. . . if i went out on a shoot with hep and had a $5,000 dslr setup while she only had a shitty cellphone camera, she'd *still* be taking shots that looked far better than mine. . . in many ways a point-and-shoot is better to have than a dslr 'cuz the best camera to have is the one you carry with you everywhere, and a dslr is definitely one of those cameras that you have to pause and think, "do i wanna lug this thing around with me?". . .

haha, this sounds like me when I talk about guns.

Thanks for the tips! Problem is that I'm in South Korea so I can't really order any books or anything, the shipping is prohibitively expensive. And I'm sure I can do a lot more with my point-and-shoot than I currently do, but I mean that I'm hoping more to find stuff for point-and-shoots than for SLRs.
That is a wonderful costume!

I hope your wrist feels better. :/ Hands are too important to be incapacitated!
I guessed Joanie Harris. At least I got the redhead part right. she's adorable! and sorry about your wrist.
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhh she is ADORABLE!!!!

That sucks about your wrist. Hopefully it's just a sprain and gets better soon!
