saturday project

yesterday I got a late start after spending the previous day with my girls...oh how I adore my girls (my nieces). I decided to play around with the new toys from the thrift store (the slip and camera). my friend Stacey had this fabulous photoshoot with a muscle car and a 70's flair so I decided to go the 40's.

sorry for the repetative nature of the shots but I played with set-up and processing.

the morning after

pardon me....

one too many

  1. Looks like you had a lot of fun plaing with the settings.

    That last one would make a great mystery book cover ... am already wondering about the storyline

  15. i like.

    the 40s is one of my favorite decades—Cary Grant is probably the reason. :)

    i think it would have been fun to be an adult at that time.
