Photography Class Assignments

Once in awhile I take a photography class. I took the first one in high school in the late 80s early 90s (yeah, I know, like a million years ago with a real 35mm SLR Nikon that probably weighed 10 lbs and a had a groovy patterned strap from the 70s). I'm sure my dad still has the camera that I was using back then -

More recently I took an online photography class - mostly because I didn't want to read the book that came with my much fancier (at the time) DIGITAL camera. My how times have changed. I can always find things to photograph, but when you are assigned a subject, you often find more interesting things to snap. In my case, they were all taken in my backyard - they become some of my Favorite Things...

none of these photos have been digitally altered - they're just as they were taken :-)

The reverse painted ceiling fan is so beautiful, and exactly what I have been looking for to put in my home. I have the matching wall sconces. This is no longer available in my area. Wherever did you find the ceiling fan? Thanks for posting it. Dorothy

Dorothy, I purchased the fan at either Lowe's or Home Depot (it's been so long I don't recall) it was back when they were still a current product. I have moved the fan to my master bedroom because it doesn't "go" with my house any more, but I love it so I hate to get rid of it. I figured no one would see it in the bedroom LOL.
