Photo Challenge LAST DAY Outtakes
Published on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 by

I did it I did it I did it!  I managed to post a picture for every day of the 30-day photo challenge!  I am really proud!

The hardest part of it all?  Getting through the frustration of not being able to reply to all the wonderful comments you left.  By 11 at night, I was just finishing my visits to all of your fabulous sites, leaving me no time for anything else.  But I read and loved them all!

The amazing photos everyone posted floored me.  Your talent is beyond belief!

I have chosen three outtakes, although I have about a zillion.  Outtake means FAIL, correct?!

flies on shrimp

I took this the same day I took my favorite picture, “Shiny.” I thought it might work in one of the themes, but it didn’t. This is a piece of shrimp on a hook with my fishing rod behind it. It’s pretty gross, and yet I’m drawn to it. Kind of like a car wreck?


picture of shooting arrow

Remember my “speed” picture – the shooting arrow? Guess how many pictures I took in order to capture that arrow? About a BILLION SIX! I think this one is number billion three. If you look at the bow you will see the arrow actually broke in this shot!


Bird Crap

Just after I took the nasty “fly shrimp” picture, a bird expressed his displeasure with my shot. Bird poop, meet camera bag.  There are critics everywhere.

    Nope…outtakes don’t mean just means you chose a different photo….I love the arrows tail flying out of the second photo….my daughter wants to give this sport a try. I love the top one!!! I’m not sure if we would catch any fish fishing together…we would be having too much fun photographing pelican poop 😉

    • Do you know that out of the millions of years I’ve been on the beach, I’ve never heard of a pelican pooping on someone… well guess what happened to me last year. A flock goes by and WHAM! Right on me! I can see you there taking pictures for sure… with me laughing hysterically!

  • And I thought you could catch a lot of flies with honey.

    • I didn’t think of that! I think old bait shrimp did the trick VERY well!

  • Barb

    Katherine- it has been wonderful getting to know you!Watching the adventures of Fake Barbie has been one of my favorite parts of this challenge! 😀

    • There is a url I could use with the word BARBIE in it, but I’m thinking Mattel might get me for that?!?! Even if it says “fake?” Fake Barbie was actually going to have a finale but the hurricane stopped that from happening. 🙁

        Do it, Katherine!

    “I did it I did it I did it! I managed to post a picture for every day of the 30-day photo challenge! I am really proud!”

    Yaaaaaaaaaay! Way to go!

    And you should be proud because you did an AWESOME job, Katherine! It was such a pleasure to view your faaaaaabulous photos. What FUN!

    Love your last entry! And that photo of the bird poop is HILARIOUS!


    • Ron, that bird poop was unbelievable. I’m sitting there taking pictures, trying to be OH SO creative… and then SPLAT! Not 6 inches from my – right on the camera bag. It was SO FUNNY!

  • “It’s pretty gross, and yet I’m drawn to it. Kind of like a car wreck?” I’d say more like the unlikely romance between Fake Barbie and MikeWJ… 😉

    Congrats on making it through the entire 30 days, it was fun, eh??

    • Ziva, did you hear? Fake Barbie went to meet MikeWJ and he didn’t even pick her up from the airport! So much for romance!

      • MikeWJ

        She never showed! I stood there on the concourse waiting for her with flowers and chocolates and a pocketful of fresh batteries — you know, for later — until the sun set and all the pilots went back to their hotels with the stewardesses and they turned the lights out. It was sad. I think she hooked up with a rodeo star and forgot all about me.

  • You did such a GREAT JOB, Katherine! You cracked me the hell up for 30 days! I love you! XOXOXOXO

    • Meleah, you have NO IDEA how many of us have been worried about you… it is OH SO WONDERFUL TO HEAR YOUR ONLINE VOICE AGAIN! LOVE YOU TOO GIRL!

      • Mikewj

        Me, too. Really.

  • MikeWJ

    I did not need that bird poop photo. Or the flies. I feel ill.

    But I am proud of you! Congratulations on completing the 30 Days challenge, one of the most sifficult and meaningless events in history. And thank you for making me laugh as well as impressing me with your skills. It was fun.

  • This is really disgusting.

    Katherine, you have such a gift for the truly macabre and I’ve loved every minute of it.

    I’ve finally gotten around to posting my outtakes because, dammit, I said I would so I did. Crazy is as crazy does.

  • What? No Barbie outtakes, wardrobe malfunctions, or drunken escapes with Ken/Tom? Oh you have really made me laugh with those posts!

  • Well, it’s taken me 3 days to get over here… work stopped me in my tracks & I haven’t gotten to any posts since Monday. Wonderfully gross outtakes, though… you’ve made me happy so many days, during this little non-contest! Thanks for the memories that are permanently etched in my brain!
