kitchen shots (bang bang)


it’s cold, it’s dreary, it’s drizzly. But I’ve got to get my camera out to play! Here’s what I’ve got.

Handsome Jack. I got the lightscoop out, and put the camera on Manual to make sure the shutter speed and aperture were exactly fast enough and wide open. ISO was 200. Flash strength maxed out.


Lucy wasn't happy with my camera. I actually think she's scared of it. Sticking your tongue out isn't nice for dogs or people!


Pretty girl. Since I have four boys, she gets to be my baby girl. She's just the sweetest, unless you're a man at my house and Scott isn't here, then she's a vicious attack dog. I'm not even kidding either. She's VERY protective of me! She even started barking at a man on TV last night after Scott had gone to bed. Warning!


Max isn't feeling so great today, kind of in a sleepy crabby mood. I wonder if he's got S.A.D. like me? It could be!


That’s it. We’re done with school for the day and the video game madness is about to begin. I’m going to get to that laundry pile then work on finishing up “Mockingjay” . What are you doing today?


rainy days and mondays always get me down


And today, because it’s a nasty combination of the two, I’m longing once again for warmer days.  Bubbles! What a great “prop” for kids. Give them bubbles and stand off to the side and see what happens.

I was on the deck below Jack when I realized what he was up too.


I love how he's out of focus but the bubble is in focus. I was having fun playing with my brother in laws fixed 35. This is what hooked me on getting my own fixed 50.


tiny bubbles


Do I not have one of the cutest kids in the world?


a bubble beginning.


What kind of “props” do you like to give your little ones to get a good action shot? Thank you for indulging me on my yearning for warm sunny days.
