TELL all TUESDAYS :: Charlane from Ramblins...

Today we're introducing you all to Char...short for Charlane from the ever gorgeous photography blog "Ramblins..."
She said she's a little shy about taking pictures of herself...but gave me this picture of her converse Chucks (below)it made me smile. I do believe she has a wonderful sense of humour....and is a blogger who I would LOVE to meet one day in person!
I adore her photography style...and is able to capture nature in such a romantic way...beautiful.
ENJOY getting to know her and seeing a few of her photographs::Tell us a little about the Town you live in... & have you always lived there?

I currently live in Montgomery, Alabama. It is the capital of Alabama so it is steeped in history as being the cradle of the civil rights movement. Montgomery is the city where Rosa Park made her stand. It is where Dr. King preached on Dexter Avenue. In juxtaposition, it was the cradle of the confederacy.

I lived her from the first grade until I got divorced. I moved back here in February 2009 after living in Birmingham for a few years.

If you could move anywhere tomorrow, where would it be?

The Barrier Islands of North Carolina. I love it there.

How structured is your day usually?

Currently, my days are rather unstructured as I’m looking for a job. But, when I’m working I’m very much a structure girl as I believe organization makes for a faster day.

What did you do today?

Today I had a play date with my oldest niece – we ate Krispy Kreme doughnuts, crafted together (made “I love you” cards for family members) and came to my house to visit the pugs. I also played car pool mom for my youngest nephew.

Are you a cat or dog person?
I have both – I always thought of myself as a cat person, but I moved in with my brother who has two pugs. I have found I adore them and love spoiling them rotten.
Are you a breakfast, lunch or dinner girl?
Dinner – I love cooking dinner for family and friends. I rarely eat more than a quick bite at breakfast and forget lunch until it’s time to still making preparations for dinner.
If you had 6 friends over for Dinner what would you make for them?
Tough one – depends on the friends really. The most recent dinner we had together was family and we made hot wings and cheese fries. Last Saturday I made shrimp tacos. However, my go to “impress” someone dinner is chicken parmesan.

How old were you when you knew you were on the right path in your Life?

*laugh* is there a right path really – I find myself starting over again and pondering that question. I’ve had days where I really thought I was doing the right thing and it blew up in my face and I’ve had days where I thought my life was crap and I did okay. I think the trick lately is, enjoy the moments and be prepared to adjust as life throws the curveballs.

Who /what drove & inspired your love to create?
My mother has always painted since I was a young girl – ceramics at first and then later tole and other wooden cut-outs (she was a day care teacher). My grandmother was a seamstress that could make the most beautiful clothes just by looking at a magazine – too bad I did not realize what she did until she was unable to sew like that anymore.

Tell us something not too many people know about you.

Lord, I’m a blogger so I feel like I tell everything. Hmmmm, how about I was once a competitive spades player that played every night with the same partner. But I got tired of the stress of such high level competition so I quit.

Shoe choice::flats or heels?

Flats!! Actually, whenever possible converse all stars (Chucks) or flip flops.

What was the last book you read?
Julie and Julia.

What advice would you give others just starting out?

In blogging, I say stay true to “your” voice and enjoy it just for yourself. In photography, read your camera’s manual and practice, practice, practice. It’s such a basic thing, but do as they advise and take at least one photograph a day – even if you don’t share it with the world.

Name 5 blogs you love visiting, and tell us why.

Be Yourself (http://moredoors.blogspot.com/) – I love Beth’s positive outlook on life and I look forward to her photography. I would love to hear her laugh as I imagine it’s one of the happiest sounds.

Chronicles of a Country Girl (http://chroniclesofacountrygirl.blogspot.com/) – her photography is wonderful.

Ink on my Fingers (http://inkonmyfingers.typepad.com/ink_on_my_fingers/) – She is my current heroine of photography. I love her style and her effortless looking composition. Truly inspirational.

It’s Just How I See Things (http://itsjusthowiseethings.blogspot.com/) – I adore Georgia’s voice. I forget how I found her but I thank goodness that I did. She’s so very real and I am loving seeing her photography grow. She’s a girl that I would love to have a cup of coffee with everyday.

Soul Aperture (http://soulaperture.blogspot.com/) – Christina is one of my new reads. She has a quiet calmness that smoothes me and she radiates peace and joy.

But honestly, I love reading everyone on my blog roll. I get something from each – happiness, serenity, joy, support, inspiration, information, humor, thoughtfulness...and I could go on and on.

Thank you Char for taking part in our Tell All Tuesdays.

Have a great day everyone...and make sure you visit Ramblins...some time today to say hello to Char.

We're off Strawberry picking today.

Char, On
