The Aquarium


Will on the Carousel {43/365}

LUCY asked how I got Will in focus and not the pole.  I used to do this one way but I recently learned a new camera has a selective focus option where I can tell it (by moving a blinking rectangle in the view finder) what to focus on.  I have had mixed results with it but perhaps I just need more practice.  Check your manual (In the focus section) to learn more about your camera...Cannon, Sony, Olympus, and Nikon all have a similar feature.

That is one serious Lollipop!

Woohoo~ I am like 3 or 4 days ahead.  I can hide my camera for a day:)

Looks like ya'll had a great time! The peanuts all look precious!
I'm making your penne and chicken dish this weekend- I'll let you know if we come up with a name after we eat it- it looks awesome!

I love these! The one of Will on the merry-go-round is great. Do you have any tips for how to got your camera to focus on Will rather then the pole? That is one of my struggles. I always seem to get the wrong thing in focus when they are side by side like that. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Love them! But I am especially drawn to Will's photo - it is awesome and needs to be blown up as a canvas!!

So sweet Kim : ) You are really doing an amazing job with your photography. I have been thinking of you a lot the past couple of days. Wondering how you are settling in? How the boys are doing at school? I also hit up the Lacoste store last weekend and they were having a wonderful sale (I know you like Lacoste too). Don't know if you have a stride rite near you that carries Lelli and Kelly and Primigi shoes. If you do they are having their buy one get one half off sale. I know Kate has a lot of the same shoes as Addison. I stocked up big time on sandals and other sparkly shoes for the girls (My girls are shoe nuts. Just thinking about you...when you have a chance shoot me an email and tell me how your doing : )
