Since my husband works until midnight, five nights a week, this is my night: a chilly bed, untouched on his side, lights on, and a book to keep me company. Naturally, night on those other two days of the week means...something else ;)

Night time glow

The row of garages at our place.
i love the lights and how they glow.

Challenge: Night

For this challenge I wanted to do something abnormal. Most of the time for phtography we need good lighting so what if we chose the word NIGHT for this challenge. It could be a pic of anything at night or something you do at night or even something that you think of when you hear the word.

As always post Sunday night March 7th at 11:59PM PST!

Play Time at the Beach

Our play time today consisted of us fossil hunting at the beach.
(we found about 10)
This is the side of the mountin that had the fossils in it, great weather today!!
We couldnt get to the agates, tide was coming back in.

auto, no flash,

Water Play

"I'm not playing around, Miss L. You're in big trouble. You stay out of the cookies. Don't you grin at me like won't work...oh, with those eyes and that grin...oooh, I love you!"
ISO 200
minor tweaking in picasa to even the light.

My favorite thing here, besides the grinning girl, is the one droplet ripple right between her and the soap. It just looks nice to me.

Mommies Play too!

Man I have missed this blog! I don't know what my deal has been but I haven't really done much of anything with my photography lately but I really want to get back into it. I guess I could blame it on my giant belly and the possibility of popping any minute... but that's really not a good excuse. I'm sorry Mission 24! I'll try to be better.

Anyway, I know this isn't overly artistic or anything but it's actually a bit out of the box for me anyway because I always forget to get into the pictures myself. This was my son's idea. He put the "glasses" on me and pointed at the camera. I LOVE it! I think, as silly as it may seem, this might be one of my favorite pictures of us together.
f/4 , 1/60 sec, ISO200---- basically, it was on auto. I've got to get away from that!
