I frequently have outtakes that make me laugh when I upload photos from my camera, especially when I'm trying to take photos of myself. Here are several from when I took the photos for my dachshund brooch giveaway. Enjoy. ;)

  A lovely photo of my neck; no dachshund in sight, however.

Oh wait, I almost got his head in the frame.

Nope, not quite.

No idea what's going on here.

Yay, I'm finally in position...but totally out of focus and too dark.

Victory! And by "victory" I mean the dachshund is actually in the frame and in focus...the rest of me is a mess. Haha.

It's the little successes that make everything else ok though. :)

There's still time to enter the giveaway if you'd like. xo, Mary


  1. LOL...I do this a lot too! It took me 5 tries to get a picture of Jesse and I on my birthday. I'm just glad he was patient with me :)

  2. Very recognisable.... All together the pictures look very artsy!

  3. So funny! The bloopers are always the best.

  4. totally funny! My camera has an option so you can view a shot with the screen while you take it (instead of looking through it)so I'll set it up so that part faces a mirror and I can view my picture as I take it to help me focus on a detail better.

  5. Haha, too funny! I do the same thing... :)

  6. Hahaha brilliant, I'm glad I'm not the only one!

  7. heehee:) I love this ..too funny. I'm pretty sure we all do the same thing:)

  8. Hahaha, I do this, too. I model most of my jewelry for my shops, too, so there are a ton of these every time I do a shoot.

  9. Ah, I know this so well... I don't need to take photos of me wearing my photos :))) but I don't trust people to take my picture, so on many occasions I do it myself. I only bought a camera with a flip screen last summer, so you can imagine how many years I came up with similar photos like yours :) But sometimes such cool things come out incidentally!
