So... how many times can Lydia get up, push the shutter timer, and go sit down... over and over and over again?

Answer: Soooo many!! *sigh*

I realized I'd blinked a couple of times and had to do those over.

*grin*

Was fun though. The dogs think I'm crazy.

They're right, of course.

P.S. I hope only 21_F.gif LittleMav recognizes me. She always does... but she's never met me in person. Odd... We must be related by brain cells.

Poor girl.

During voting:

@ littlemav and Cory: HA! Your two comments being first... really rocked my world hilariously!

@jim29028: You need help, honey. Relax! Repeat after me: "It's only an ottoman. It's only an ottoman." (PS... I think it adds to the "casualness" of the image." It is okay. It is okay.)

@Art: No.

Interesting tidbit of info: This is the second shot I took.

I took it, as I was dressed... as a test shot, to see how it was working for when my family got home to help me shoot.

I was planning on dressing up a bit... and then letting someone else press the shutter button (totally legal, by the way).

But, when I saw this... I thought it was funny.

So, I tried some more...

Never did get
it as well as I did here in the second "no pressure, just testing" shot I took.

I should learn something here...

*sigh*

Looks like a comfortable chair and a nice way to spend the day, placement of the magazine is very good. I'm picky about symmetry and the foot stool (hassock) being slightly off center bugs me.

Awesome! Usually this type of shot seems a bit cliche when I see them -- but I really like this one. I love the pov, ottoman and the socks.
