I got a new lens a Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II.  Having fun trying it out and who better than baby Rosie...

Ten little fingers
Ten tiny toes
The sweetest of smiles
And a cute button nose
All these add up
To a very Special thing----
The Greatest of Gifts that life can bring

Picture Inspiration

52 Weeks of Photocentric Creativity & Community

I have joined an online photography e-class with Tracey Clark who will be sharing 52 weeks of weekly inspirations.  Once a week Tracey will be e-mailing a prompt that will encourage and inspire class participants to pick up our cameras and taking meaningful pictures.  The class Picture Inspiration also includes message boards and a gallery to share our images.  Imagine it has started 4 weeks ago I am still pondering about each prompt and wondering what I am going to photograph.  Anyway going to start playing catch up.

 So Week 1: Self portait

So here I am doing the dreaded Self Portrait with darling daughter in background!

We're now getting closer - you can see where this is going!

Oh how we love to pose, but hey if I wanted her to do that do you think she would!

On the road......

My baby Boy has just turned 17 and is now on the road.  He has applied for his Learner Permit and is now driving his Da's car.  A bit apprenhsive but it is all part of our kids growing up and becoming more independent.  Here's a card I made for him.
