Today's posts on a color scheme. I chose to take a photo of my garage. We did most of the packing, except breakables, and moved the boxes to the garage once they were full. It is very full since we leave on Saturday. Ahhh!!!!
Today's post was on something that reminds you of childhood. I chose to use a picture of my boys playing in the water. I remember many summer days growing up laying in the sprinkler trying to stay cool. Today was actually a beautiful day and almost a little chilly for water play. The boys had fun though. The Baby did not want to get sprayed so once he found his little puddle he was good.
Today was about the people we love. I am so lucky to have such a loving and fun family. For my photo, I chose my boys. This picture was taken at Easter. In less than a month we will be adding another boy.
For today's challenge, we are to take a photo of the sunrise or sunset. I was up at sunrise with The Baby, who has not been feeling well today, but I forgot. So I took one of the start of our sunset, mainly because I was thinking about it and knew I would forget if I waited for a colorful shot.
Today's challenge is of something we like. Since it's Saturday, we went to the Farmer's Market for once last time here in Ohio. Came home and made Bruschetta, sliced a cucumber, and some mozzarella. A delicious, fresh lunch.
So, I may have mentioned before that I do not own a fancy camera. The camera I do have us very basic and since getting the iPhone in December, I use that mainly. The last few days have been to use light, day 16 was light trail and 17 was use of light as well. These I could not seem to capture one my phone :(. However, I was able to join in today's, which was a show of emotions. I took this photo of The Baby about a week ago. If he is waken up from his nap by anything, he cries for about an hour not wanting a thing!!!! It is rather frustrating and funny. You hand him his paci, he throws it then reaches for it all the while getting more and more angry. The last time he did this, I snapped a picture and was able to "show emotion" for today's challenge.
Yesterday's challenge was to focus on the eyes. I chose a picture of The Baby I took back in November. He was peeking around his stroller to see my mother. For day 15, we were to do what we wanted. My friends husband and mine are gone this week for work so we are spending about everyday together. Today, the boys were jumping beans!!
Today was a little, ok, FAR from my knowledge of photography. We were to take a bokeh photo. I do not have a fancy camera or even really know what type that is except that the background is blurry with a focus point. I cheated and downloaded an app to help me out :/.
So I'm a little behind on posting my photos :/. We have been very busy around here getting things ready for our move in two weeks!! Crazy!!!!! We are going to miss our friends do much but looking forward to our next adventure :).
So, day 7 was a silhouette photo, which I was not able to get...a portrait of my oldest was as close to a silhouette I was going to get.
Day 8 was a close up shot. Here I tried to get our youngest but he was moving around so much it didn't turn out how I had hoped. Oh well...he's still cute!
Day 9 was from a distance. We went to a friends house the other day to play and the boys had so much fun in the bounce house. The Baby LOVED it when the big boys were not in there! (I can't seem to find that photo at the moment :/)
Day 10 was anything we wanted. A friend of mine helped write a book so I took a picture of that :)
Day 11 was a black and white photo. I took one the other day of our sweet little boy. He was swinging away having the time of his life. I love his smile and how little, yet big, he looks!
I am far from being a photographer so I tried my best to get our shot for today, a low angle shot. We just got back from a local farmers market with loads of yummy fruits and veggies. Today I'm making a fresh Strawberry Rhubarb pie. I cannot wait for dinner tonight!!! Here is my attempt at a low angle shot of my strawberries and rhubarb.
Today was an interesting challenge. We got to take a photo of whatever we wanted. It was fun to see all the different things we were up to today, what each of us thought would be interesting to post. For me, it was the delivery of our boxes to start packing. The adventure is about to begin!!
Today's challenge was to takes high angle photo. I'm sure some people will have great pictures...mine is taken with my phone as most of my pictures are. This is of the boys hard at work with their tools. The Baby LOVES his Handy Manny tools that sing and bounce.
Today's challenge was to be of a place you love to be. Mine was with my boys. They may drive me crazy at times, but they bring so much joy, laughter , and love to my life. I live them all and love being with them.
Today's challenge was to take a picture of something you wore today. Since I am not about to take a picture of my big belly to show my outfit, I took one of a necklace my brother sent to me when he lived in Japan.
One of my friends started a group to challenge us to take a photo, already decided what the photo would be for the day, for the next 30 days. Today was the first day and it was a self portrait. All I hope is that I remember to check her posts on what the photo is for the day. Here is my portrait for today...
