Emotion: Fear/Excitement



I really tried to "think outside of the box" for this challenge and took quite a few different pictures, anything from my guitar (expressing emotion) to some fresh-baked cookies (emotional eater) but, this one of my daughter on the skateboard ended up being my fav. I wish I had an unbiased judge to review my pictures before I post because I think I am naturally drawn to the pictures with my sweet little ones in them. Ya know how that goes?! ;)

I love it, so cute and she looks like she is having a ball... one question.. How do you get your picture so big? I have noticed that other girls pictures are big too.

Melanie said...

Oh my goodness!!

So sweet! I love this! Her expression is so full of life!

Great job Britt!!

Teri-I use FLICKR to get my pictures big. Just open a flickr account, upload the picture you want, choose all sizes and it will give you a few different options. From there copy and paste the link into the post body. You can make the picture the exact size you want in photoshop before uploading. Hope that helps! I know photobucket is another way to do it, never tried them out though.
