Flash back Friday: January 21 - 28

Happy Friday Everyone!

I don't know about the rest of you, but this has been one killer week around here. *sigh*

I can't wait to see your shots from this week - I seriously need the pick me up. Smile

Best,

Sorry your week has been rough, GiGi Sad

Just one from me right now....I'm working on a ton of "long exposure" pics though for the COTW and I'm sure I'll want to share a few extras once I decide which one to use for the challenge Biggrin

Amy, Eva just gets more adorable with each shot you share (I love your new sig too)!

I've shared some of these already in the COTW and assignment threads, but it's all I managed to take this week:

I found Loli asleep like this before school this morning as I was bringing out his breakfast. I hated to wake him, but school wasn't going to wait for us. Wink

And this was for the long exposure challenge - Logan was swirling around my cell phone.

That's all for me, but I hope the rest of you guys have lots to post! I'm going to be working ALL weekend it seems, so I could really use the distraction. Biggrin

TFL,
GiGi

Thanks!! Smile Awesome shots, GiGi! what a sweet pic of Logan and I love your processing on it.

I really need to stop resizing my pics in Flickr because the sharpness just goes down the drain completely Sad this one is a good example...but it's still my cutiepie heheh. It's just so convenient to use Flickr because I do most of my uploading/posting on my work computer (SHHHH!!!!)......when I'm at home it is SO rare for me to be able to sit at the upstairs computer and work on photos :/

Amy, I commented on that picture of Eva on Flickr already..but I'll say it again, she is too cute!

Gigi, he looks so peaceful! Great shot. And I think that phone one is pretty cool...long exposure is fun!

I've got a few to share this week!

Replying here before this thread gets crazy!! Lol

Amy - I saw that on facebook, so cute!!!! Don't resize in Flickr. I wish you had Elements so you could run a cool action for resize and sharpen for web. Can you do anything like that with your program? (I just spaced on the name of the one you use, it's on the tip of my brain)

GiGi - that's an awesome capture!!!! Andrew hates being photographed, but I'd love to get him sleeping like that. Cool cell phone shot!

Jamie - I ADORE the kids playing together, just so sweet!!!!! Jaxon's getting so big so fast!! The horse is beautiful, and I LOVE the farm and road shots, so jealous of that scenery!!!! Cool tracks too, we don't have any tracks nearby which makes me crazy. I really want to photograph railroad tracks!

If my family lets me edit for the next 6 hours (they won't though), I'll have photos to add here. Wink

Just have a minute to post a couple from this week. I wasn't able to practice much, so just Carson and Bailey.

I know, it's so silly Gwen, I use Paintshop Pro and I can obviously easily resize there but I almost never have a chance to sit upstairs in our bedroom (where our big PC is) and edit Sad AND, that computer is SO SLOW most of the time that I end up getting too frustrated to continue with it, OR it freezes up and takes forever to get running again; but I fully intend to start resizing there again instead of at Flickr.

AND, as soon as I am able, I have decided to buy Elements 9. Not because PSP is falling short on me editing-wise, but mainly because I want to be able to play with all the PS actions that exist out there. They just look so fun and there are so many great ones.

Amy! She's such a cutie! Smile

Gigi...that cell phone one is pretty cool actually Smile and what a sweet pic of Loli sleeping!

Jamie...those are awesome! I love that little kitchen your kids are playing with. Which one is it? Love the horse! And #3 is beautiful! Wow. Have any more from the farm? Smile i love the tracks too!

Stephanie... very sweet shots! Smile

Amanda I'm guessing? Smile ... Very cute!


I have a couple! I just took these today Smile

I used my speedlite with this one. Bounced it off the wall on my left. I'm loving my speedlite (when I get it right)


Saturday Morning by loidaeg, on Flickr

and no speedlite. just natural light. it's so hard to photograph my cats but I think I did pretty good on this one. Not much editing really. But I had my ACR opened for awhile trying to figure out if I needed to do anything else lol

and my F is for Fork .. I'm a bit behind on my ABC challenge Smile

Didn't quite come out the way I wanted but it works I guess.

E is for Egg. The focus is horrible on this shot. I kind of want to re-do it sometime.

LOVE everyone's shares this week!!!

Amy, Eva is so adorable! I would definitely re size in your program rather than letting Flickr do it for you. You do loose a lot of that detail.

Gigi, love the sleeping photo, I love it when LOs sleep. They really look so tranquil.

Jamie, you're getting good girl. Love all the stuff you've been doing recently. I commented on #3 in flickr, but that light is really awesome.

Stephanie, Your boy has the most beautiful eyes! Great catch lights.

Loida, you are so creative with your ABC project. Love watching!

Loida, I love yours too!! I am always loving your focus in all your photos, even the egg I thought looked great. I saw it at Flickr & loved it. And those ice crystals, love those they're like a miniature forest Smile

From the 21st until the 28th, I took 326 photos. I am crazy. I narrowed those down to 118. I really have a problem ...

anyhow, it's late, I need to get to bed. I do have some I want to share though. these are actually from the 20th, but I finally got to edit them tonight.

Andrew actually let me take his picture ... Smile

Andrew outside

But he had to make a face too ... boys!

Andrew outside

And after I came inside after taking those (this was also the same afternoon I took my "shades of gray" shot that I posted a couple of days ago), I photographed Jordan and her "rock star" tattoo

Jordan's tattoo

and here's one from the correct time period. Smile this was on the 23rd at BIL's house. just thought the ice frozen on the window was cool, along with the hues of reflected sunset in the sky outside. just wish there wasn't so much clutter in the foreground.

I really really tried to bust out that camera as often as possible last week! Here are a few of my favorites:

Here's an "outtake" pic of Owen, I love his expression!

Long week, 3 sick kids...and my hubby brings me 12 of these! I love him.

Jacob wears this scarf around his head pretty much all day, every day.
It's his bad guy scarf. Wink

Owen chillin on my bed

Jacob and his BFF Ashleigh, who apparently decided to cut off some of her hair a few days ago. (Hint-she used to have bangs longer than Jacob's! :D)
