TGIF! On Wednesday after work, Eva & I had fun playing in the snow and building snowmen, and she actually let me take some pics of her too.

(hubby took this one---->

Not the greatest pic, but a full shot of my cutie pie Biggrin

Running from the camera, lol

Amy, Eva is really so cute! Love the snowmen. I tried taking pictures of our snowman this week but getting the exposure right in the snow seems to be beyond me at this stage. Your snow pics are awesome!

Here's a few of mine. The first one, she ASKED me to take her picture -- a real rarity!

Tried taking the kids out for a few pictures last weekend but this is the only one where they were both smiling and looking at me -- and the only one in a bad spot (shade/sun). Oh well.

Outside in the snow:

And just fiddling around learning more about my camera, took this with the focus on my life Bible verse (Ps. 37:5):

Amy - Eva is sooo cute! I love her little coat.
Tracy - I love the last one.

I do have pics to share - lots actually. Last week, DH and I spent a few days in California visiting Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park. They're unbelievably gorgeous in the winter. You all will be very proud of me, because for the first time ever, every picture I shot, I shot in RAW!! Yay me! They're all on my home computer (I'm at work right now), so tonight, I'll add them to this post.

I have something to share this week Smile A good friend from high school who is a musician asked me to take a few photos of him and his band member.. They have like six bands each... lol. Anyways, this one is a beatles cover band, so they dressed like beatles and we tried a few things... I kept most in B&W because that what I saw most of when I googled beatles:rolleyes: They are all a bit different... I was experimenting Biggrin

This one we copied a well known pic.. everything else was just us winging it. There are some serious masking booboos on this one... which I have gone back and fixed, but I didn't bother to re-upload... lazy.

This one is my friend, the other guy I just met that day... Smile

Amy .... your snowmen are just ADORABLE! and Eva just gets cuter and cuter. Looks like she had a lot of fun in the snow with you that day. I love her little coat as well.

Tracy ... I love that first one of your DD. What a cute pose!

Krista ... I can't wait to see the pics from your trip. I have always wanted to visit that area.

Lauren ... WOWSERS! What a great set! Your friend must be so thrilled with these. I love them all, but the first one really grabs me. Great conversions too!

Jamie ... awesome macro work! I really love the lichen (never thought I'd say that)!

Here's a few from me ...
From soccer last weekend:

I know this one is soft, but I love his expression here:

A collage of some of my faves:

and here's one of me that Logan took. I should have put the camera on a tripod. He had trouble with the weight of the camera with the speed light on there, but he did a nice job of bouncing it off the window in this room.

TFL,
GiGi

Amy - that snow looks like fun. Eva is such a doll!

Tracy your kids are too cute. Love their eyes color!

Lauren these are awesome! great conversion. Not sure if the blacks are clipped? Must be my uncalibrated monitor here at work.

Jamie - that first macro shot is great! Worth framing IMO.

Gigi - are you training Loli to be a photographer? He did well. YOu look great. Your son looks so tall.

Here are just snaps of my kiddos.

Playing together which is rare!

Tracy - That last one is my favorite! But I totally love that first one too!

Lauren - Those are GREAT! I also like your conversions!

GiGi - I love that expression too! And is Logan going to be a little photographer too??

I'm actually participating this week! All last week, Carson was sick, so I didn't really get my camera out, even for snapshots. But I took a few today that I'd like to share Smile

Lauren, those band photos are really fantastic. Love the black and white and the mood of them.

Jamie, those macro shots are so beautiful. Your daughter looks like she's having fun with the paints. (I'm such a clean freak, I always worry about paints/mess!)

GiGi, your son's soccer pics are great. I love the first one too! The picture of you is beautiful!

El, such awesome pudgy cheeks on your little guy!!

Stephanie, oooooooooooohhhhhhhhh those snow pics!!! I so longed to get out in the snow this week and take some pictures -- so pretty! Your kids are adorable... amazing dimples!

Great pictures everyone! I'm really enjoying this thread as always! I love the snowmen, and so does Rylan, we have looked at them like four times already! Biggrin

El - your right, the blacks are clipped in a couple where I lost detail in pp, and didn't recover it. I could probably go back and mask in the suits on one or two of them... I probably will if they are going to print.

Argh! Typed out a nice long response with comments for everyone and lost it all. Am running out of time so the short version is: Great shots everyone! Love this thread, especially all the beautiful scenic shots, I am jealous of all the snow & snowmen.

Thanks GiGi & Tracy!

GiGi, it's a tiny bit of moss growing on a wall in my garden! It's like a whole new world when viewed as a macro, lol!

I love Randy's boots, Sadie! Logan never really had any he liked - he's a sneakers boy. Such a shame ... I had ideas for so many TX themed photos w/ boots. Wink

Best,
GiGi

Thanks GiGi! They were actually Ruthie's boots from when she was younger. That's about all he wears! He LOVES them!
