Tried photography at the Little Pottery Shop Studio today and think I did okay but what do you all think?
Here is a different view of the porcelain butter dishes. Just figuring out how to use all the software to get my blog off to a good start 🙂
Here are the efforts of Shannon’s photography lesson with me this morning. What a great time we had talking camera settings and lighting issues! Can’t wait to try my skills at home in Maryland light. The light here at Shannon Edmond’s Photography in Southern California is perfect for sure.

Summer has finally arrived to the mountain and the warmer temperatures have started everything growing. Thank goodness. The few potted plants are […]
