Heart and Soul

I really do like to photograph things. But for some reason I have a hard time taking posed-smiley-faced or party pictures. They just aren't me. Even though I do enjoy looking at such pictures when others take them (and thank goodness others do take them). Anyway, I laughed at myself when I downloaded the pictures from my trip home. There were very few pictures of either the old or new friends I hung out with over my time home. Oops! Unless you count this sort of picture:
It's a bird's-eye-view of the Heart and Soul dance that took place at the L.A. conference that I took from my hotel room before I headed down to the party myself. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't a wallflower. I went to the dance. It was a blast! I even dressed up. I made a t-shirt with this design on it:
It's for "Heart and Sol." Get it? If not, don't worry, you aren't alone. But I liked my take. I liked the anatomical heart earrings I ordered from Etsy too. And actually, I kinda like my bird's-eye-view picture. Even if I can't recognize anyone I know in it. Well that is, I can't recognize anyone but myself -- this is exactly the kind of photo I would take. If I were less clumsy I also may have tried capturing people moving a bunch on the dance floor -- in other words they would have been blurry. But as it was I chose to leave my camera in my room. Sometimes it's best to dance like no one's watching.
