Pictures I Have Taken

Here are some pictures that I have taken recently that I thought I would post for people to see. 
The first picture is a picture of my dog, Haley.  I like this one because you can see she had been  rolling around in the grass that day by the little pieces on her  face.  It is a different angle and that makes it interesting to me.  The next picture was taken on Mizzou's campus across from the J-School.  I thought the rocks on the bottom framed the bottom corner well and thought it was a different shot.
The third picture I like because I think it is a cool waterfall shot.  I think I took this at the Botanical Gardens if I remember correctly. The next picture is just a different view of the columns at Mizzou. The picture of Billy Currinton I couldn't figure out how to rotate so it just ended up sideways.  I have a version of this without the red-eye that looks much better.  I like this one because I think it is a good portrait shot of him in concert.  
The last picture I like because the flamingos are in the bottom corner and at first you may not see them but I think they add to the picture.

Tonight I started to learn how to knit.  It is something I've wanted to learn but never did.  Erich's mom is teaching me.  She knits really cool stuff. Last year she knit me a hat and scarf.  It took some getting used to at first to figure out how all the stitches go but once I got the hang of it, it was easy.  I'm excited to learn more and to actually make something instead of just practicing.  I looked at books today at Barnes and Noble and they had a cool book on knitting little bears and knitting clothes for them.  It looked really cool to do so maybe once I learn I can go back and get that book and make some of those.

My First Post

So I am knew at this blogging thing.  My brother gave me the idea to come here and set up a blog site, so here I am.  Hopefully this will be used to post some of the pictures I take since I love to do that.
