For The Love of Silly Pictures!

Over the years I've developed a fondness for silly pictures.  In previous seasons of my life I would have resisted the request to have my silliness captured in a photo.  It wasn't until about five years ago that I asked myself why?  

The answer …  I was scared.  

The next logical question was  ... scared of what?  

The answer ... being vulnerable.  Ouch!  

At the time, I thought I was a brave and confident person but it turned out I wasn't.  

After having this conversation (with myself) I decided that the next time taking a silly picture was suggested I would not resist but cooperate.  To be honest the first few times I did resist internally but cooperated externally.  

Fast forward to present and almost every time I take a group pic we end with a crazy pose.   Some of my FAVORITE pictures (I've taken or had taken over the last five years) are silly pictures. Here are a few pictures I took in October.

Lookie there, a group of lovely ladies on a weekend getaway.  Very respectable!

This ain't our first rodeo!

What’s that?  You don’t go to Nashville, rent a house 
and take pictures in the tree out front? 

So, the next time you are taking pictures be sure to include a few silly ones.  They may become some of YOUR favorites too.

See ya next week,
