Karma's When I Feel Like It Blog

Are you tired of Halloween? No? Okay good!

After almost a full month of blogging every day with my photography class, I felt a bit remiss that I hadn’t posted anything for the first two days of the month.  Kathy was talking yesterday about how sometimes we have the urge to blog even when we don’t have anything particular to say.  That’s how I’m feeling today.  While I was scrolling through my archives of pictures yesterday for another project, it occured to me that I hadn’t shared the girls’ Halloween costumes from the “week of Halloween” at the dance studio for which I had helped them come up with costumes.  Aha! Blog fodder!

The camera has been restless for a few days.  I can hear it calling to me from its bag:

 “Karen, aren’t you going to take some pictures today?” 

 “Camera,” I reply, “you know I’d love to, but it is November!  November is not a particularly photogenic month in these parts.” 

“I know not of what you speak,” answers Camera,”It is dark in this bag and I would like out.  Now, let’s get going please.  Or else!”

“Or else what?” I challenge.

“Or else, you don’t want to know!” Camera mysteriously replies.

Camera is right, of course.  I think another photography adventure is in order – soon!

Did I ever tell you about the little adventure  involved in getting this photo for Scott Thomas’s “Hometown” assignment?


  1. Those costumes look great!
    Loved your little camera story…. mine can’t complain about the darkness in the camera bag, because I have mine sitting on my desk, on top of the printer where he (yes, my camera is a HE) can look around 😉
    I miss Friendly’s… we used to go every once in a while when we lived in Maryland.

    • A few weeks ago we discussed the gender of autofocus – definitely male. Hmmm, unless the camera is hermaphroditic, then I suppose mine must be a “he” also! LOL!

  2. OK, I really like it that your camera talks. And now you know that your blog talks too, lol! Karen, have you seen what I’ve done? Please come over to my blog and look! We are now Twins!

    • Wow, Kathy, I almost thought the link didn’t work when I clicked to visit your blog, because it looked at first like I had stayed on my own, LOL! I hope you end up liking the theme – I do; it feels like a better use of space.

  4. Great costumes!

    My camera talks to me too. I keep trying to leave it behind when I go on my walks but it insists on going. I say “there’s nothing out there now that I haven’t already photographed a thousand times in the last 40 days!” The camera says, “Oh but there is…”

    • Do you tell your camera to stay home when it rains? It has been pouring buckets today and as much as I would like to take Camera on his adventure, today is not the day for it.

      • I do, Karma, but it doesn’t always listen. I take an umbrella and hope for the best. Some of my best shots have been done in the rain (although now that I think about it, it has been a long time since that’s happened).

  5. The conversations you have with yourself (or with inanimate objects) crack me up! LOVE your sense of humor! Very creative costumes! 🙂

    • Ut oh, have I posted conversations with inanimate objects before? Maybe I am the one who is cracking up! 😉

  6. It’s funny how the camera works. Nowhere does my instruction manual mention this “talking” feature. And yet, it seems to be standard equipment – at least on any camera I’ve purchased! Great post! And, great shots!!

    • Well, it is good to know that I am not the only one with a camera that makes its feelings known!

  7. Last time I had a discussion with my camera I ended up losing a bet on how long I could do without it… Cost me a fortune… You would not believe how many doughnuts my camera forced me to eat… Great costumes btw… 🙂

    • Sounds like an interesting bet. How long did you do without it? Amazing power these inanimate objects have over us!

      • Oooh I’d have to say it was at least an hour… lol…

  8. 🙂 What great costumes! I’m glad you listened and let the Rebel out of the bag…

    How are your beatiful daughter’s toes? She looks stunning en pointe!

    • Ha, ha – funny you should say that about her toes; due to the fact that she’s been taking pointe classes for 5 years now, her actual toes can look pretty scary at times, especially right after class! But thank you, and I’ll pass on the compliment!
