I'm beginning to think I'm a bit strange lol.

I try to keep my photography seperate from my kids. Ok so I take photographs of the kids, but I prefer my photographic subjects to be something other than the kids.

I see so many beautiful photographs posted here, and just reading the thread about putting your work up on the walls in the house, they're mainly photo's of kids. I only have one photograph of each of my kids on the wall, the rest are landscapes or flowers or whatever other stuff I've taken.

Am I the only one who tries to keep photography as my 'seperate from the kids' hobby?

I love to take pictures of other things too. I have a nice little nature/landscape collection and I'm looking for just the right photograph to hang in my daughters room. Now, to find a dandilion in this GA heat!

Take pictures of what you enjoy, I love to photograph people but I also did some really cool commercial work at a coffee house I worked at. I would like to see some of your stuff too if you'd like to post it. If I can get the commercial stuff onto the computer I will post it as well.

Well, I have to wait until my kitchen and living room are complete--they are being redone. Then I will add non-kid photos to those rooms.

Prior to DS's arrival I mainly took pictures of landscapes & macro flowers. I liked to take occasional day trips out to find someplace nice to shoot....but since DS, well I don't get out as much. Or when I do Im too occupied to shoot.
But I dont think its strange to keep it as a somewhat separate hobby. And Ive seen the shots you have of the area you live in, and wow, they're so beautiful. They make me want to move.

Annie, you're so silly....NO, that does not make you strange! It's just what you said, YOUR hobby...so you shoot what you like and don't look back.

And hey, maybe you're smarter, most of your stuff doesn't move so much! Oh and I've seen some beautiful shots of Isabelle...and your other two for that matter!
