My Life. In Pictures. Day 2

Posted on November 17, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments | Tags: , |

Today’s photo challenge from Amber is Hearing.   I chose a photo from this summer at my hometowns quasquicentennial (that’s 125 years!) celebration.  There was an old fashioned shoot-out which ChickenFried and Punk wanted front-row seats for … until they started shooting.  Punk has never liked loud noises, as evidenced by her reaction.

My Life. In Pictures

Posted on November 16, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments | Tags: , |

My dear friend Amber is hosting “My Life. In Pictures” again this week.  The theme for this session is the five senses.  I’m already trying to figure out how to sneak a camera into HyVee to get a picture of a Thanksgiving turkey cooking!!!

Today the sense is sight.  I had to search my picture catalog to come up with something.  I seriously have 4,000 pictures but couldn’t find one that I really loved – how is that possible?  Anyway, here are my goofballs in 3-d glasses at our special viewing of The Christmas Carol!  Not a great picture by any stretch of the imagination, but it suits today’s purpose and I’m in a hurry as usual!

My Life. In Pictures. Day 3 – Out and About

Posted on August 5, 2009. Filed under: Elemental Memories, Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , |

Day 3 of My Life.  In Pictures.  calls for a picture “Out and About”  — anywhere but home.  I picked a picture from a few weeks ago at my hometown Q125 celebration.  At the Wild West show the kids snuck up front to get a closer look.  ChickenFried is instructing Punk to watch the guns.  The following picture is Punk’s reaction.  I know some people don’t like “back” photos, but I kind of like them.  To me, there are situations where the intent of a photo is to capture the moment.  They were watching the show, and we were watching them.

My Life. In Pictures. Day 2 – A Favorite

Posted on August 4, 2009. Filed under: Elemental Memories, Mommy Moments, The Parenting Thing | Tags: , |

Day 2 of the My Life.  In Pictures.  calls for “A Favorite.”  I took this literally and looked for a favorite photo.  This is Punk last year at one of the county fairs.  It was the first time she had been on any type of “ride” and she was loving life.  I love this photo because you can experience the pure joy just by looking at her face.  It instantly takes me back to that moment.  She might not remember that exact moment when she gets to be my age, but hopefully this photo will help her remember the fun of childhood.

Chasing Picture Perfection – Photo Assignment

Posted on July 20, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments | Tags: , , , |

I’m playing along  in a new blog photo assignment hosted by my friend Stacie at Chasing Picture Perfection.   Every two weeks, a new photo challenge will be posted.  This assignment is to create a photo with shallow depth of field (sharp forefront/subject and blurred background).   Stop in and play along – you still have a few days to get this assignment done.  If you don’t have a blog, you can use one of the social networking sites,  or send to Stacie and she’ll post it for you!

 

I like this photo because of the color pop you get from the flowers, and I do think it’s one of my best shallow depth of field photos.

Fun Photo Challenge – Day 5

Posted on April 3, 2009. Filed under: Mommy Moments, Web World | Tags: |

Something Old.  Sadly, our cat Stoney.  ChickenFried was asking how old she was the other day and I calculated it up — she’s 77 in cat years.   But she’s not a crabby old lady.  She like my spry great aunt Madeline who walked the four blocks to church every day and made it to 99 1/2 years!  Sidebar story.  We’re sitting at my Mom’s house and look out and see Aunt Madeline carrying flowers to church.  She was probably about 93 at the time.  BigD asks if we should go help her.  My Mom and I look at him like he’s nuts and say “no.”

Not to follow the pack or anything, but my something new is flowers as well.

Day 1 – Something New:  I decided on the first spring flower in our yard.  It’s something we all look forward to seeing.  And, thank goodness the forecast for snow is now out.  Oh wait – it’s back in.  No, it’s out…..?

Fun Photo Challenge

Posted on March 23, 2009. Filed under: Elemental Memories, Mommy Moments | Tags: |

My friend Amber’s blog has issued a photo challenge.  Follow the link above and start participating next week.  Come back here to check my postings for the challenge.

I love what she has picked for the challenge.  One of the items is the view out your front door.  Realistically, not something you have a photo of (unless you look out at the Royal Gorge or something), but it’s a great memory. 

Have your kids get in on the action and take/post their own pictures!
