Quarterly Top 5 Photos

Wow, this year is flying by. I seem to always be saying that. I think it's a sign of growing older. When you're a kid, time creeps by, and then when you want it to slow down as you age, it doesn't.

Enough philosophizing. It's too early in the morning, anyway.

Here are my top five photos for this quarter:

This is my favorite photo for this entire time period.  Mainly because I finally was able to freeze the motion so well.  I also love his expression and the height.

I do like this photo a lot, but was bummed about the blurriness.  I am fairly certain that this lens has a back focusing issue.  Quite often, what is behind the subject is very clear (see my husband?) and when I'm taking the photo, what I intend to be in focus looks fine.  Anyway, this was the first time my youngest was on skis.  Since we didn't have a ton of snow this year, it's remarkable that we were even able to try this out.

Since this isn't a contest, I am going to include this photo.  It's too bad the settings on my camera weren't right.  It was one of those moments that I just shot because it happened so quickly and I didn't have time to adjust.  I did try to lighten it, and this is AFTER that attempt, so you can imagine how dark it was to start.  I do love her expression.

Love this of my daughter lost in thought.  She was working on a special research project for school.

I love the framing of this one. My daughter was very upset because she had just learned that she wasn't going to be able to meet a children's author that she was highly anticipating. (This did have a happy ending, because we later learned that the timing would work to our benefit, so she did wind up meeting the author.)


  1. These are so fun - I love the first shot and your framing in the first shot is really cute.

  2. Nope, I think you're right....time does fly!!! YAY for learning to ski and getting to mee the author after all.

  3. Such great shots. I love that second photo. So awesome.
