52 on Friday-Week Four

 A blog circle of photographers from all over the world, both amateur and professional alike, sharing their interpretations of a common theme.  At the bottom of each post, click the link for the next photographer until you come full circle back here.


This week's theme was a bit of challenge for me, creatively speaking.  Well, truth be told, technically speaking as well.  I waited until the last minute to do take this picture because I couldn't decide what to do.  I searched the internet for some inspiration every day this week and again tonight.  I finally found a shot that I decided was worthy of my efforts, especially because I thought it would be fairly simple to accomplish. As it turned out, I  needed the help of my oldest son because I was having trouble being in front of the camera and behind the camera, composing the shot, at the same time. I explained what I was looking for as far as composition.  I adjusted the settings on the camera. Dan took the shot! ( And I put my remote release aside for another day!)

Here's me keeping warm with a cup of hot chocolate!
