Sixth folder, sixth picture

You may have read about Mary at Owlhaven's recent 30 Days of Nothing, a challenge I knew better than to try so I just watched her in admiration.

This time, however, she and her friend Sara at A Shower of Roses have thrown out a challenge even I can handle:

Access the My Pictures folder on your computer. Go to the sixth folder. Go to the sixth picture and publish it on your blog.

Alright, ladies, here you go:

Wow, and ain't it a beauty.

It was taken in January of this year at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine, Texas. The boys and I tagged along with Pete on a business trip to the area and took advantage of the indoor water park for a day or so. Rather than risk getting my real camera wet, I purchased a waterproof disposable camera, with which I took this picture. Even though it doesn't show any of my peeps, I wanted a shot of where we spent almost the entire time while we were there.

I think $6.99 camera was a wise purchase, don't you? I know you're marvelling at the photo's detail, the crispness, the vivid color of the...lockers. And notice how the shot shows the contrast of the outdoor wintry mix that was falling (you can't see it? It's there, I swear) and the blue of the 18-inch-deep water. And the moms and dads who look pretty much bored out of their minds...see how the lens captures the skin tones only mid-winter in Texas can...er...cause.

So there you have it, Mary and Sara. The challenge is met. I hope my readers survive.

I am always disappointed with indoor-pool pictures...it is so hard to get the light right....and the kids are constantly moving.

Thanks for playing along.
