Pretend and Dream,,,,,,I have a Macro lens :)

A long shot to get on topic, but using my creative side :) Playing with my little point and shoot in my flower patch. Not too bad for a point and shoot :) Thanks for looking!

Just a few from my town

Here are a couple pictures that I snapped at UNL East campus the other day. One thing I LOVE about Nebraska that I don't remember seeing much in Utah is the BIG BLUE SKY with WHITE PUFFY clouds. Seriously, the blue sky here is SO blue! I love it!! Also, love all the vegetation at the Campus. They are an Agricultural school so the grounds are beautiful!

Long time......But on theme :)

WOW IT HAS BEEN FOREVER!! I have missed the challenge that the photo of the day gives me :) I have actually been working on sunburst shots, but am completely lost. I took some pictures of my liitle sis and her hubby and tried to get a sunburst shot.

My first question: Are the red circles towards the bottom normal? Am I trying to get too much sun in the picture? I took a million pictures of this and this was the best one because the circles are off their face and not as dark as the rest.

Does anyone have some advice for taking sunburst/sunglare pictures? I would LOVE to hear it! Thanks!

Here are the settings (thanks janett)
ISO 200
SS 1/160
f 4

All I did to edit was a LAB color pop and lighten them a little.


BTW, I have missed you all! Hopefully I can get back in habit of the POTD!

Oh Baby......

......No more baby!!

So I am trying to be on theme. Since My little Baby, just got POTTY TRAINED I thought I would share that. She is 21 months old and officially a BIG GIRL. It took about 1 rough week, but it is done and it feels good!

JPEG Image
ISO 400

And my edit. Didn't do much, so hopefully it looks better :) Couldn't figure out how to get the orange cast off her legs, oh well.


And then this picture helps me remember she is still my little baby. look at those squishy little toes! LOVE them!

Enjoy :) and thanks for looking!

My word it has been FOREVER! So much for a couple posts a week. Things have been crazy, we have all been sick, and well, photography was the last thing on my mind :) Anyway, I am back for the time being.
Emotions. That is the theme for the week. Well DD number 1 is FULL of emotion (more than I can handle most of the time). And she always has a big bright smile for the camera. DD number 2 is a little different. She is a lot more mild in temper, but this also means she doesn't always give me that 'big bright' smile. This is her. Just a little lift of the lips and that is good enough for her.


Excuse the poor quality of picture. It was stormy today and I didn't feel like getting out my flash, so I used 1600 ISO.

Thanks for looking!
