Project Alicia : WW: The Leftovers (the non-food kind)

WW: The Leftovers (the non-food kind)

Do you ever go through your leftover photos and wonder what you will do with them? I know they won't win any awards, but they each tell a unique, personal story. It's so hard to part with them. Ok, so I admit it. Deleting pics isn't my strong suit. (Hubs just bought me a new 2 TB hard drive.) I may even have a small photo hoarding problem. And ironically enough I just ran across this article about deleting pics ruthlessly.

Maybe one day, but for now I'm am giving them a day to shine.

My son actually took this pic of me and I repurposed it as my new button.

Photobucket
This is one of my kid's favorite pastimes these days.

Photobucket
I love the simpleness of this one.

Photobucket
This one was an experiment in the dark with hardly any natural light. A little tricky without flash, and definitely needs more work and probably a tripod. But isn't it sweet?

Photobucket
Taken after one of our family runs.

Photobucket
A common photo op around here. This toad was captured by Pokey.

Photobucket
A gift from my Little Man. Such a thoughtful gesture.

Photobucket
This was the same day as the trek through the creek I shared a few weeks ago.

Photobucket
Taken for a photography challenge. Hubs hated it.

Photobucket
Another shot by Little Man.

Photobucket
Love the sky in this one. I added a couple different textures to give it a little more interest.

Photobucket
Rejected for my flower photo shoot. I kinda like the canvas effect it has going for it.

Photobucket
The one hour the kids were with hubs for father's day between a soccer tourney and hub's night shift.

Photobucket
Another photography challenge reject. But I kinda love it.

Photobucket
This was meant to be a silhouette shot, but the settings weren't right. I just love the natural expressions though. If it weren't for the scary ape shirt from Uncle Hans it might be more tolerable.

Photobucket
A recent find thanks to mama cardinal dropping it on our deck. After some fb discussion, we are pretty positive it's a tomato worm.

Photobucket
This one reminds me of a setting in the Lion King. Not sure why since it looks nothing like Africa.

Photobucket
How can you delete peonies?

Photobucket

Photobucket
And this is a sneak peek of a photo shoot I did in North Carolina of my brother and beautiful sister in law. Happy Birthday, Nate! You can see more of the collection at alicia ann photography.

Ok. That's all I've got today.

  5. All of them are amazing! I love the one of you with the antique camera. Where did you get it? Such a jewel.

    And you saw my photo of the caterpillar from the Crazy days of summer link up and took one for yourself right? *kidding* That's a fascinating picture though of him holding it and looking.

  6. Delete a photo of a peony? Not possible. And these are your "rejects". WOW! I love that white shirt photo. How do you come up with all these ideas? Do you think some of the success you have ASIDE from your creativity is the quality of your camera & lenses?

  14. I would be happy to have your leftover photos as my awesome look at these photos LOL. If I even had 1/8th of your photography talent I would be happy.

  15. I'll join the photo hording club. Each one of these photos tells a story and they are a roadmap of where you've been. Your photos are always stunning and I don't think you should delete any of them. (resize them so you can keep them forever)

    P.S. I'm not sure why I wasn't following before, maybe I missed your button, but I'm following now!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I lovee the Queen Anne's Lace {I think that's what it's called}....beautiful shot! How do you get the photo so light? Love that look!

    ReplyDelete

  21. Great shots, as always!

    The toad reminded me of here. They are everywhere and, much to my dismay, are committing suicide often. They are not dealing well with this heat. uggg

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh, I could never delete those either. Absolutely beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  23. The photo by the water fountain is great. I also really like the toad photo. We saw a toad on our walk today. Those berries look delicious.

  28. I have a serious photo hoarding problem and yes you could win awards with this set. But I don't take a single pic to win an award. I just want to capture the moments and not forget. Exactly why I hoard photos! Thanks for hosting lovely WW!

  54. I love that I'm not the only one who won't delete pictures just because they're not perfect...because these? Are all perfect in their own way. And it appears the apple doesn't fall far from the tree - your son is already showing some mad photography skillz...just like his mama! :)

  67. Ha — I love that these are your rejects. :) I quite enjoyed them. I have the same problem with photo deletion — sigh. New hard drive coming right up…

    ReplyDelete
  68. P.S. I keep wanting to take pictures of my boys sleeping and having to wake them up by opening up curtains to let in more light…

    ReplyDelete
  69. How could you even consider deleting any of them! your bad shots are way better than any of my best! LOL... some day ;p!
    And your son must of inherited your 'eye' for photos. ~Faythe @ GMT~

  70. The one of your two men in bed is my absolute favorite :) The lighting may not be perfect but it's the perfect moment

    ReplyDelete
  71. Seriously, I just had this conversation with my uncle a few days ago, while we were visiting him in San Francisco. He supports our inability to delete photos because storage is "so cheap now." I'll take it! Your photos are incredible. You and your family inspire me! (family runs? I love it)

    ReplyDelete
  72. SUPERB photos! :) I fell in love in with your site!

    ReplyDelete
  73. Amazing Lish! Love, love, LOVE the old fashioned camera. I've been looking for one for a couple years now but when I find one I love it's not a price I love. Love the preview of our pics! They are fantastic. You have a gift for sure!!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I truly love those photos. All are beautifully captured.
