Getting pictures ready!

Well, a few weeks ago, I did a post about being invited to display some photos in a local Winter Photofest.  I looked at my photos, chose some I liked, did some editing, printed some, did some more editing, and printed the sizes I want.  Today I got all three of them framed and/or matted.  I am displaying one as a 4x6, one as a 5x7, and one as a 8x10.
I took a picture of the framed, matted 4x6 and the framed 8x10 so you can all see the finished product. :)

Almost any small object can fascinate me, if I am taking pictures of the object.  :)  The other day, I was at a friends house, and we were taking pictures late, late at night, while we were eating cheerios.  Naturally...cheerios ended up in our photos.  I was explaining to her (a new photographer) about planes, and how focal points really often are really more like a focal plane.  I generally consider this shallow depth of field like focusing on a 'slice' of my 3-D setting.  So a 'slice' of my picture is in focus.  This changes depending on the angle you are coming from...
So here's a few random, fun, cheerio pictures my friend and I took.

Winter Photo fest

I was invited to display three of my photos at the BrickStreet Market for their Winter Photo Fest. Here are the ones I am most likely going to choose from.  
Winter photos can show such beauty, yet they are often hard to capture.
