Family Fun

We had a great visit with Shannon, Will, Morgan and Taylor. It was so hard to say goodbye when it came time for them to leave. I was not ready for them to go.

The kids played very well together, about an hour after they had left Q was asking me when they were coming back for another visit.

I have been looking to buy a new camera, I love the one I have but I feel like I have outgrown it. I wanted something with more zoom capacity and something I could play with a little more. As you know Shannon has been posting great pictures on her blog so I played with her camera a little bit and fell in love. I thought if I could pick up one like hers she could teach me a thing or two before she went home. I don't know if I will get as good as photography as she has gotten, but I am going to have fun trying!

She posted about our walk and here are some of my pictures from it:

I took this photo because I liked the way the grass looks, but if you look in the background you will see I accidentally caught a dragonfly in the picture.

On our hike there was this butterfly that fell in love with Shannon. Shannon tried to take a picture of it but she was to close to the butterfly to focus on it. I took a lot of pictures of it and these two are my favorite. I wonder if Shannon liked the same two or if she would have chosen a different one to post.

I am not sure if Shannon posted a picture like this one or not?

I think it is interesting that we went on the walk together and saw the same things but took our photos differently. I love the photo of the dead tree that Shannon took and I never even saw the dead tree! It just goes to show how differently we all see the world.
Shannon took a picture like this one but I framed the picture differently, she framed the trees and the cloud and I framed the photo with the wild flowers in the foreground.

And the prettiest picture in this batch, two lovely ladies. I think they look a bit alike, they have the same chin and mouth and nose. It is the eyes I think that make them look so different.

Great pictures! I do see a resemblance between the girls but not the nose.

I love the photos that you took. It is interesting to see what photos people take when they're in the same place taking pictures. Every one sees something different.

I agree, the pictures came out great. And the one of the girls is so damn cute I could spit!
