Field Trip Friday: Camp Bayou

Last Friday’s field trip was a half family field trip. It was more of a school thing for the youngers, so dad, baby and the teens stayed home to do other things. The rest of us headed down to Camp Bayou in Ruskin, Florida for a class on weaving and a class on...

DeSoto National Memorial

The whole family drove down to Bradenton yesterday to get baby’s handprint made for our wall collage. When he was done, we headed over to the DeSoto National Memorial. It was QUITE chilly for Florida, but we thought the location was a hidden treasure. The kids...

New field trip posts coming soon!

I’ve missed blogging. Life is so crazy that I’ve resorted to Facebook updates for some time. I’d much rather write as much as I want and put up as many pictures as I want and then link the blog to FB instead. 🙂 I did such a great job documenting our...

A few recent favorites

I really feel like it’s all coming together lately. I’ve had trouble wrapping my brain around natural light and how to manipulate it, but I feel like my photography has grown immensely in the past month since I started the lighting class. Sweet little baby...

Today’s favorites

Sometimes it’s frustrating having to post only one photo on my 365 project. Today I had several that I liked a lot. 🙂 There is the option to upgrade the 365 to an ACE membership and not have a posting restriction, but I’m not ready to do that yet. Perhaps...

Self Photography Attempt #1

My husband hates to take pictures. My oldest daughter is great at it and usually doesn’t mind, but it really isn’t her thing, either. The teenage boys? Forget about it! So, if I want my family to remember in years to come that I actually existed,...

365 project days 35-39

Day 35 I have to admit. It was right around day 35 that I started getting lazy about my pictures. Thanksgiving and being sick took a toll that I’m still not completely past. Just so you’re warned. 🙂 This picture is of a new dessert I tried for Thanksgiving...

365 project days 30-34

Rats. I got behind again. I’ve got to carve out a little time in my day just to post my 365 project photo of the day! In my defense, I’ve had a terrible cold for about 2 weeks. Hopefully now that I’m feeling a little more human, I can do better! I...

365 Project Days 28 and 29

Day 28 We’ve been pretty cold in Florida the last few days. No, it’s not New York cold. But we’re in Florida. I’m expecting to walk out most days of the year in flip flops and shorts. This has been sweater weather, people! And jackets!! I made...

365 Project Days 18-27

Day 18 This girl is so photogenic! Here’s another one from that day that I like a lot. Day 19 Day 20 I was trying a technique called “panning.” I definitely need more practice, but this shot is kind of cool in it’s own way. Day 21 OK. I started...
