I can’t get over how much my “little” man has grown. I could swear that he was just born and in reality it was seven years ago. How has that time flown by so incredibly fast?
I am a Nikon girl all the way so missing my camera is an understatement (corrupted card number four has got me halting use right now) but while enjoying the weather outside at my parents yesterday I grabbed my Dads camera from the house and started shooting and I am quite surprised I am saying this but WOW I might prefer the Cannon over a Nikon for close up nature photography. The biggest issue I have with Cannon DSLR cameras is the speed of taking photographs. It is slow at best. Not sure if it’s just the memory card but my sisters camera (same model as my Dads) is also slow. So for capturing pictures of running children it’s not the best, but as I was squatting in the garden and on my hands and knees taking pictures of the flowers and lady bugs it was awesome. Case and point:
Of course I am biased but I think they came out pretty darn awesome. No editing was done of these pictures so for coming straight of the camera I am really pleased. Now I am not saying my Nikon is nothing short of awesome because it is, I’ve had it for going on six years now and it has become a part of me. I have it with me at all times and I take a million pictures of every thing and nothing. Using the Cannon has helped me get over my pity party in not having a working camera but I am a Nikon girl at heart and don’t see a Cannon in my future, unless I somehow won and awesome giveaway but seeing as I rarely enter giveaways I doubt that would happen LOL.
And just so I have an even number of pictures of here because I am slightly odd and don’t like odd numbers, here is one more. See all those tiny little aphids, nasty little things!
I just realized a little bit ago that today is Wednesday. Pretty sad considering it’s eight o’clock at night now. It has been a long day though, many many hours spent at the Orthodontist for my son, my youngest is sick and I’ve had a migraine all day. But I just can’t miss doing a Wordless Wednesday post.
Monday we celebrated Passover at my Aunt and Uncles house. This is the first holiday we have been together at since my Grandfather passed. It was definitely different with out him there but I am very thankful we got to spend that time with my family since it will be more difficult after the move.
There you have it, a very late but still within the time limits Wordless Wednesday post.
Living in the high desert of California I know a little something about living with wind. No wait, I take that back. I know a lot about it. We experience about 350 days out of the year of some speed of wind out here. It’s not gale force winds but sometimes it’s down right scary listening to the howling while inside my house.
My point being, I have many pictures that I was hoping would be amazing only to end up being disappointed by the wind coming up and either not being able to go outside or to not be able to see my children’s faces at all because they were covered by their hair.
But today, the weather was awesome. So I decided last minute to take a trip to see the Poppy’s. The wind was for the most part calm and the temperature outside was a beautiful 82 degrees add into that a bubble machine and you have the makings of a perfect day.
So without further a due, here is my picture of “Wind”.
