The Kids Were Here {3}

The story: Francesco tells me that the older kids as camp won't let him touch their Bakugan cards. I tell him, if he is good I will get him his own pack. He holds up his end of the deal and we go in search of these cards. Unfortunately we can't find them, what we do find is a Rubik's Cube (do you remember those?). So, he decides instead he needs the cube more than the cards and I agreed. Of course Nicolo then "needed" more matchbox cars, since we really don't have enough already. They both took their new loot to bed that night and then to breakfast the next morning.

New loot and the book: 7/20/2011

The other part of the story is the book. It's one of those books with great pictures and not a lot of words. The kind that you have to tell the story about what is going on from the picture. They were eating breakfast with their new toys and going back and forth telling each other what was going on in the picture. It was a moment you want to last forever but can't.

They then had to get up to get dressed for school and the scene was frozen in time till them came back. It screamed "take my picture" to me, so I did.

52 Weeks of Me - Week 29 {Shallow DOF}

This weeks theme was Shallow Depth of Field, I love photos that have the creamy background, I also like how the shallow DOF makes your skin look good. I found that holding the camera at arms length was easier than trying to use the tripod for this shoot. I was also inspired by Jen for my shot this week.


Next weeks theme: I Love..., take a photo that completes the sentence.

Don't forget there is the Flickr Group and we also have all the themes posted there. Plus, if you want this cute blog button swing by Jessie's she has the code.

Playing Around

I've been playing with some of the cool programs on my new Mac Book Pro and the video feature on my camera. Let's just say I've been having some fun.

52 Weeks of Me: Week 27 {At Work} & Week 28 {Faceless Portrait}

For the theme At Work/At Home Week I could not think of anything interesting to photograph. Even though I sit in front of a computer all day now my work is kind of interesting but on the surface it looks like I sit in front of a computer all day. I do occasionally do things the old fashion way and pick up a pen now and then to write things out. Sometimes I have to put thing on paper to make sense to me, that is the old "show your work" part of me. I am good at math but only on paper, I am not one of those people that can do it in their head.

For this weeks prompt, faceless portrait I decided to stop taking pictures of my hands. This is a necklace that I wear daily. I love jewelry but I never think of changing it to match my outfit. I am too busy trying to remember who needs what for the day, is it pizza day, share day, bring a soft toy to sleep with day or swim/splash day. All of that distracts me from the accessories. Someday I will accessorize more but for now this little infinity circle goes with everything. I wear it so much that if I don't have it on one of my boys will notice and ask where it is.


Next weeks theme: Shallow DOF (depth of field), time to break out the 50mm and shoot it wide (f/1.8).

As always I am so grateful to all who are participating! Don't forget there is the Flickr Group and we also have posted all the theme there (Thanks to Jessie for finishing them up). Plus, if you want this cute blog button swing by Jessie's she has the code.
