Busy weekend. Yesterday I did a family photo shoot for a friend. Day 2's picture is the only photo I took that wasn't of them. A windmill at a local park.
Last night we went to a "Too early to call it a Christmas Party, Party". It was a LOT of fun; good friends, good food, good music & lots of dancing! I barely had the energy to take a photo today - I had a little too much fun thanks to today's subject.
So I have be MIA for a long time for no really good reason. Life got in the way, I got behind and was always on the edge of tomorrow - "Tomorrow I'll get back to the blog" - well tomorrow is finally here and I am back on this journey. Same goals as last time, to learn more about photography and have some fun along the way. I am looking forward to getting back behind the lens and to checking out everyone else's blogs.
Today's photo is of one of the awesome little people I get to hang with on a daily basis - Henry & his baby.
Yes, you read that right - Birthday Pickles. My sister-in-law received a beautiful birthday present from her little buddy Finn. When Finn's mom asked him what he would like to give "Aunt Crissie" for her birthday, without hesitation he replied "The biggest jar of pickles ever!"
I did not pick up my camera at all today, between the kids, a doctors appointment & a soccer game, I didn't have a chance. Now I am too tired and mentally drained to come up with something; instead you get a shot from Sunday when my daughter celebrated one of her best friend's 3rd birthday.
I seem to be shooting the same stuff over and over again - clearly I need to get out more and get myself out of this rut. But I do enjoy shooting the stuff that surrounds me everyday. Today, I couldn't decide which photo to use, so you get a bunch.
Jake, watching & waiting for the kids coming down the road.
More Tulips. I like the light in this one.
A pretty little shrub in our front garden. I love the delicate white flowers.
Okay - technically this photo is a bit of a mess; but it's Friday, we had a BBQ, and some drinks. :)
Todd was throwing Isla sky high & she was loving it! I grabbed my camera & tried to capture it, in low light, after a few glasses of wine....
It's been a crazy week, I am so far behind with everything. We are getting ready to celebrate Declan's 6th birthday on Sunday, a Scooby-Doo Mystery Party - I still have so much to do. I have been a bit lazy with my project 365 - I haven't taken a shot for today yet, but thought I would get caught up on the last week while I have a chance.
I hope to get a chance to take a look at some of the blogs I follow and leave some comments - I miss everyone's pictures!
Cheers all & happy shooting!
106 - 109 - Flower Power
The garden is a bloomin'
105 - Feeble attempt
We have a pair of Cardinals that love our yard. I tried to get a shot of them through the window, with a 300mm lens, without a tripod. Needless to say, I wasn't very successful.
104 - Relax
Spent the day celebrating one of my BFF's 40th birthday. The day started at an incredible spa.
My son, Declan, has always been obsessed with flowers; in fact for his 3rd & 4th birthdays, he wanted "a purple flower party" and "a rainbow flower party" respectively. He loves, loves, loves to pick flowers. Now my husband loves to grow flowers almost as much as my son loves to pick them; he does not love having his flowers picked. So when my son found a tulip growing on the side of the road, it was like the holy grail...a garden flower growing wild, just waiting to be picked. He did & now it is at home on our fish tank in a pretty glass vase looking out on the world. I feel kind of sad for the tulip's bulb & I hope there is enough stem left to feed it its nutrients so it can come back next year -that is if a squirrel doesn't find it first.
Anyhow, the happiness it brought Declan is priceless & for that I thank this beautiful tulip.
So I completely forgot today was day 100 of my project 365. I had hoped to do something special. Instead I took a couple of quick shots of the hyacinth that is blooming in our garden before rushing off to do errands & play soccer. I didn't love any of them. And we lost. Boo.
Oh well, hopefully day 200 will be better. :)
