Totally Addicted to Jane...

Austen, that is. I own 5 of her 6 novels, 4 versions of the movie Pride & Prejudice, and at least one version of each of her other novels made into movies. I've read books about her, books written in the style of her, and books based on the "craze" created by her. So, yea, it's an addiction. =)




I wish I could have taken this picture without flash and have it still been in focus. But I couldn't, so here it is taken in auto mode with flash, and then with the brightness and contrast adjusted to give it back some color and take away a little of the glare. I like this shot (even though several others turned out better technically) because I think it shows the extent of my "addiction"...

Good ol' Jane! I heart her! I really like the set-up of this picture, nice!

Oh, I love Jane Austen too! Good job capturing the extent of your obsession! ;) Don't you wish you could wear those dresses every day? Sigh.

I also like the set up, I think you were right about the flash too, but I didn't notice it until I read it! I'm a big fan of Jane also, but not this much. Even with the flash you did a great job, it isn't to over powering.

I got introduced to Jane right before I got married. I am so glad too. She is WONDERFUL!

I can't wait to get into this when you come. I can't say I am familiar with her stuff! :) That is quite the collection!

I love the set-up of all your Jane stuff. I agree with you about the flash, but you can't really help but use it if you don't have a window with great lighting! It still looks great, though, even with using your flash! :)

I am not sure what it is about her novels but every woman I know loves them.
