you capture: you

It's You Capture day! This one should be really fun because it is all about self-portraits. I can't wait to go see what everyone else did.


I need to apologize for a second before I get on with the show. I have been very busy making road trips and my laptop died a sudden and unspectacular unfixable death. The only computer I have access to is Luke's work laptop and the only time I have to use it can be counted in stolen little moments. I am reading your blogs on my iPod Touch and smiling to myself and thinking up comments for them but have been left without a way to actually type my comments out and send them to you. So close your eyes and concentrate really hard and maybe you'll just know what I am thinking about what you have to say. It's probably something about how lovely you are if that helps.

Okay, on to my pictures.

La dee dah.



And Clark took this. I like how real it is.


I have to point out that I have red hair, because this is something you may not know about me and it isn't very obvious in these photos. I wanted to take new ones just to prove it to you but I am 156 different kinds of tired and it's 2:30 am and my camera battery is dead. So just take my word for it. My hair is dark brownish red. Always has been and always will be. Even if it someday has to come from a bottle.

Also? The real reason I wanted to use the very first tippy-top picture is because I am totally channeling Harriet Wheeler.

SEE?



And just for good measure (and because I obviously like posting ridiculous and entirely-unrelated-to-You-Capture things in my You Capture posts), here is Harriet singing one of my very favorite songs in the whole entire world. I heard it for the first time when I was maybe 14ish? I have listened to it approximately 40,000 times since then.

  16. I love your photos. They are so natural and real. No, I wouldn't have guessed red hair, but I see it now. Great captures.

    Under the comment box at When I Grow Up, you are saying, "Hayley, I would love to join you at Creatively Fit!" ;)

    I know you could provide wonderful captures there!

  22. These are stunning, and I can totally tell that you have a gorgeous shade of red hair.

    ReplyDelete
  23. You are so darn beautiful! All the pics are fantastic, but I'm kind of especially fond of Clark's. And, wondering what would happen if I gave Levi a camera. He'd probably eat it. Hmmm...

  24. oh, these are great! i tried to do my bangs like that once....and it didn't work. =) SO cute on you.

    love Clark's shot.

  26. Erin you are so very pretty. And there was a time The Sundays were the ONLY thing I listened to. A very long time, and a long time ago.

  28. Erin, I think the first thing I ever noticed about your blog was your profile picture. Superficial? Maybe. But you really are stunning.
