That Face - Billy Ray's Bowling Expressions

Yesterday while I was taking care of myself in an afternoon with my husband, our consultant friend, Keddie Wanless, went with Billy Ray and support staff, Ron, to the LaPine Bowling Alley. Ron said that Keddie has caught my camera bug. She has been helping me update Billy Ray's visuals and snapping lots of pictures.

Yesterday she got lots of shots of priceless expressions from Billy Ray that I can't resist sharing with you today. He seems to intense about his bowling.

He is very proud of his accomplishments too. He is actually doing very well - an amazing number of strikes and spares.

Keddie and I have been trying to instruct Ron on enthusiastic praise. The week before I modeled it for Ron. As you can see he appears to have gotten the idea now.

I am in the process of preparing a slide show to use with my projector and run when I am at booksignings, etc. to show examples of adapting. Let me know which one of these you think makes my point best.

Okay, Blogger you have me whipped for today. I have four times "fixed" it so that it didn't break up my signature - half beside the picture and half below. If it does it again I'm going to leave it that way and hope my blogger friends will understand.

Until next time,

Hi Peggy Lou, Liz here from I Speak of Dreams. The photos are great--Billy Ray's intensity comes through so clearly.

I think when you are preparing the images to post, they are getting a bit distorted. I don't know what software you are using, but in Adobe Photoshop, there's a box you check, "constrain proportions" --that means that as you crop or resize, the image isn't distorted.

Love the photos! I think the third one is the best as far as showing his intensity. I can really tell that he is concentrating in that one.

Have a great day!
