Seven Random Facts About Myself – The Lovely Blog Award – India to America

Seven random facts about myself

(It became a list of seventeen)

I like Seeing the light of dawn

It’s my favorite time of the day

Hearing the sound of quiet

Is up there with listening to the sea

I placed third in a half triathlon

I’m curious and want to touch everything

I miss the taste of chocolate

And English tea

I don’t like Rush Limbaugh

I love the smell of puppy’s breath,

Sweet peas, and freshly cut grass

Drawing is my passion

Swimming in the sea is a close second

I like

My husband’s Christmas

Being surrounded by family

And having a good talk with a friend.

BetterPhoto publishes a book which includes my photographs – 2011

There are two photographs of mine in the newly published book, ‘BetterPhoto Guide to Creative Digital Photography’ by Jim Moitke and Kerry Draper. The above image,’ Your Tax Dollars at Work,’ illustrates  Rule of Thirds. Another one of my images in the book illustrates high-key photographs, http://www.photopoly.net/how-to-take-high-key-photos/. Go to Amazon http://www.amazon.com/BetterPhoto-Guide-Creative-Digital-Photography/dp/0817424997/ref=pd_sim_b_4 Where it says,  Search Inside this book, type in Carla Saunders. You’ll be able to see both photographs. Computer technology is so amazing to me.

The book came out just in time for the Christmas season. Besides being able to give the book as a present, I think it is a really good book. Composition, color and design  – no mater if you paint, draw, make photographs, this book reminds you of all the classic principles of art.
