Making Do

I don't have a fancy-schmancy camera. 
Not even an IPhone (gesh.. did I even spell it right??) 
Nope.  Just a point and shoot.  
Just a little ol' Cannon point and shoot.  And it will do for now. 

With great bravery I have decided to join a new party hosted by my fellow blogger, Kathy at Youll Shoot Your Eye Out.  I love the way she writes, leaving me cracking up at the end of each post.. she's that funny and witty.  Besides a way with words, Kathy has an innate way around a camera being able to capture moments through the eye of the lens.  I feel so lucky to have found her in blogland!  

Anyway, as I was saying, Kathy just started hosting a photography party called, Song~Ography.  Using a song title as a prompt to get your creative juices flowing, you match up a photo you've taken with the title.  First up?  Homeward Bound.  Ok, missy... I'm going to jump in with both feet and offer up one of my shots.

"There I was ... sitting at a table in the darkened corner of a hotel restaurant lingering over a poorly made Mai Tai (I knew the girl was too young to know how this concoction was made). One more night in some small town ... one more restless sleep in a hotel bed not familiar to me.. and I would be on the road heading back to....."

Ha, Ha!! Ok, I let my Drama Queen come out to play for a bit!  I took this shot at an historic hotel in Franklin, Indiana.  Road trip with my best friend.  But we were on our way back home!  

So there you have it!  I stepped outside my comfort zone.  Felt pretty good, too!  Thanks for hosting, Kathy!

  1. LOL I just Love this! I think I will join myself sometime real soon. I just love Kathy too and she always cracks me up too as I love her sense of humor!

    Oh and yes I will go shopping with you but you have to buy me lunch *giggles* just kidding! A glass of wine would do just fine as long as it's 5 o'clock somewhere ! heeheeee

  2. Love it and love using a point and shoot!

    Have a great week!


  3. Hey, hey, hey!!!! So GLAD you joined in on Song-ography my friend. Thank you for your kind words, I'm kinda blushing (OR it could be a hot flash, who knows...I'm gonna go with blushing). Well, I have to tell ya I NEVER would have known you took this with a point and shoot OR that you stepped outside your comfort zone because this is fantabulous!!! Seriously girl, Love the pop of color in the dark room...great opposition. I shot with a point and shoot for YEARS! My husband gave me an upgraded camera be ause I wouldn't buy one. It's truly not the camera, it's all in the "eye"...and you've got it! And I'm going to order a Mai Tai at happy hour on Friday now and see if the bartender knows how to make it...in your honor :)

  4. Opposition? MEANT "composition" (no Mai Tais have been consumed yet, I swear)

    1. LOL... then I must be the tipsy one as I didn't even catch it!! Blushing over here at your sweet comment, oh, wonderful hostess!!

  5. Yeah, Kadee, I concur with Kathy: the composition of this photo is da bomb! I do think you have the 'eye', girl!

  6. How much fun is that! Love, love it - you are just amazing! By the way, do you know "Southern Lady" magazine? They have a feature on Charleston in the new one...

  7. loved the photo and the dialogue. very cute and hip. I have to check out her blog.

  8. I love your photograph and would not have thought it was taken with a point and shoot. I was using an older point and shoot and about half of the photo's were blurry. I got a new iphone 5, I had the 2 for too many years. I started taking photos with my iphone 5 and they were far superior to my point and shoot. But I still wanted a better camera so I broke down and bought a DSLR, it is a Nikon D5200 and I do love it, but I am still learning, but it is allowing me to take much better photos. I love your story of when you took your photo above, I was totally believing it!! I am your newest follower on bloglovin.
    Thanks, Patty

  9. What a fun party! And your pics looks great! I have a little Cannon too, that's just about my "speed", although I do use my phone more than I should!!!
    Thanks for dropping by my site and leaving such a sweet comment!
    Have a wonderful weekend!

  10. What a great shot! Sounds like you had fun on your road trip. I just have a Cannon point and shoot too, and I love it! It's nice to know that I'm not the only one who isn't all about the latest techno-stuff! I don't have an I phone either, I don't want one, haha!! It took me forever to "graduate" from a clunky old cell phone to a flip phone. I still liked my old one, better:)
