Did you know...

that the politically correct term for bowling alley is bowling centre? Alley is derogatory? Bad things happen in alleys, everyone knows that, which is kind of fitting for our local bowling alley, yes, alley. Sunday a man was stabbed in the bowling centre, in my mind turning it back into the bowling alley!

Anyway, it was my SIL's 4oth surprise birthday party last night. Not wanting to miss my chance at taking less than stellar photos in a weirdly lit alley, I took the whole kit and caboodle with me. And I'll even take the time to say, if I took your picture and it turned out half decent, I'm blogging it. You're fair game for the sake of photographical education.
All photos are SOOC, with my Canon 50mm, f1.8 lens, flash diffused and bounced of ceiling and bald heads.

Hi Kelli! The photos are great! Looks like you guys had a great time. By the way, I just read your last post (don't know how I missed it) and I have to tell you I'm impressed! I have been trying to sort my picks just like the book suggests also, but I have such a long, long way to go! And just like you, I cannot let go of things either, but my mom...she can toss out anything!

Love the Kerry look...btw...that is exactly what Darrell's look says when we go bowling. He does things like throw with the wrong hand (getting a strike), closes his eyes (getting a strike),etc. He only bowls once a yr too.
