You Capture Thursday - One Day Late

The assignment for our photo challenge this week was "fun." Easy enough to capture. We were in Atlanta for the Georgia State Qualifier for the National Christian Forensics and Communicators Association speech and debate tournament. Those of you who follow my blog know that we homeschool and my daughter is extremely active in speech and debate. Christian homeschooled speech and debaters are some of the most serious people you'll ever meet. They can also be some of the most fun people you'll ever meet. My selection of shots this week highlight the after party at Fuddrucker's in Atlanta. This is what a serious bunch of speech and debaters look like after taking off the black suits, heels, and speech bags :O). My daughter is the third person from the left. I never post names of other juveniles on my blog.


The balloon lady was amazing! She worked hard and fast for over an hour. Anyone who wanted a balloon was in business. She could make anything that was requested. Her balloons kind of took on the quality of Dr. Seuss, which I loved! The last shot was taken with a technique called "dragging the light." This was the second time I've used this effect and I love all the wild colors. Kind of indicative of our night. If you want to see some more awesome fun shots - check out You Capture!
