Special Exposure Wednesday – The Princess Cat

In our house, using our imagination is a great way to escape the reality of hospital, needles, tests and treatments. Yes, imagination is a great thing but a little bit of face paint makes it SO much better!

We would love you to share a photo with us this Special Exposure Wednesday — and please remember to share the comment love at each link you visit.

Empty Your Boots ~ Special Exposure Wednesday

Welcome to Special Exposure Wednesday, where you have an open invitation to join the weekly photo sharing fun.

In recognition of the fact that summer is drawing to a close (never mind the 92F temps here, thank you), I am sharing a moment from the summer of 2006.

Our family was living in the mountains, and the boys had spent a memorable afternoon playing in a creek which ran near our cabin. It was a perfect afternoon…one of which you always remember every little detail and smile. We got a lot of mileage out of those rubber boots.

What image brings a smile to your face this week?

Special Exposure Wednesday ~ Our New Blog Button

Please join me in congratulating Shannon of Gabi’s World as the winner in our first Special Exposure Model Search Photo Contest. Just in case you have not met her, I would like to introduce Gabi who is up there snapping your photo from our new blog button. Too cute.

Also join me in congratulating the three runners-up who made it a difficult choice for the voters to choose only one winner.

The great response we received for this first contest has insured there will be future Special Exposure model searches. So keep those cameras on ready.

Special Exposure Wednesday – Photo Sharing

For the details read What is Special Exposure Wednesday?

This is my almost 11 year old son, Mac, who lives with Asperger’s Syndrome. I think the photo titles explain this one…

Photo Title: How to Deal with Sensory Overload
First Alternate Title: My Brothers Drive Me Crazy
Second Alternate Title: Why Is His Head Up an Elephant’s Butt?

Don’t you sometimes feel like doing this?

Link up below, visit one another, remember to comment and don’t forget you can also share up to three photos daily in the Special Exposure Wednesday Flickr group.

Link up with Mr. Linky, read the news below and visit each other’s photos for inspiration. Remember to give a little comment love everywhere you go…including here. 😉

We have a Special Exposure Wednesday Flickr group. Yes we do!

We can make Special Exposure a community where parents of children with
special needs get to know each other and share our lives through photography.  What better way to do that than sharing here each Special Exposure Wednesday and adding photos to a community photo pool? 

At the Special Exposure Wednesday Flickr pool each member may post up to three photos per day.  Flickr is free to join for a basic account and joining the group is as easy as a couple of clicks.  (Posting to the Flickr group is not required to participate in Special Exposure Wednesday.)

Welcome to Special Exposure Wednesday

In those times when you have little or no motivation – in parenting or photography – images can trigger a desire to begin another day and try again.

I am excited to be sharing Special Exposure Wednesday with you. Along with my passion for parenting, adoption, and advocacy exists a love of photography. While I am by no means a professional, I never leave home without my camera and even at home it is always on ready. My boys have grown up with my lens aimed toward them and have become oblivious to its existence, which is a good thing because they no longer whine “Ah mom, you’re not taking our picture again!” Well that isn’t true, but they don’t whine as often nor as loudly.
