Flash back Friday: Mar 25 - Apr 1

Happy Friday everyone! If you guys have had the same kind of week I've been having then I'm sure this thread is JUST WHAT THE DOCTOR ORDERED to get us all back on the right foot. Smile

Let's see your favorite shots from the last week so or! Post as many as you like. Doesn't just have to be from the last week - lots of liberty here. Post away and bring a smile to this worn out old girl today. Biggrin

Hope you all have wonderful weekends!

GiGi, sorry to hear it's been one of those weeks! Do you have any shots to share that make YOU smile?

I'm going to post before my kids get up momentarily.

This is my fave kid shot of the week:

and my kids having snack by the river trail:

One of my fave nature shots for ages, inspired by all of Amy's lovely shots of the tiniest, neatest little things we see all around us and take for granted:

Wow I have 6 pages of stuff at Flickr since the last Flashback Friday! funny how some weeks you have zero, and other weeks you flood yourself with photos Smile

Here are some of my faves from the past week. I did a lot of playing with textures & colors this week, since they work well with flowers. Please cc anything.

More at my Flickr page...

Great pictures Tracy, your kids are super adorable!

Amy, wonderful pictures as always. Eva is a doll!

I've been way behind in taking pictures lately, and havent been posting on here at all. I do come by and check everything out though. It's just been really busy around here, and I just started back to work, so my photography has defintely been put on hold. Just barely keeping up with my 365.

However, I do have a few to share this week!

We had a play date with my cousin's little girl Rya this week. She is kicking cancers butt! She is incredibly strong and brave, and just all out rocks! Dani and her had lots of fun together!

Love your set Jamie! your cousin's little girl is so pretty, I'm glad to hear she's fighting it well (cancer). That 2nd pic of her is so great!

I love your squirrel, the ice, and that bud in the last one, like I said on Flickr already!! Love those colors!

Tracy ... your DD is just so adorable! Both of your kids are, but I just love that first shot of your DD! too sweet! Awesome nature shots!

Amy ... your nature shots always make me smile - you have such an amazing eye for it! LOVE LOVE LOVE your use of textures on that first shot. Perfectly done! and those cookies are making me HUNGRY! Eva's 'smooshy face' is so precious!!! LOVE how you captured it.

Jamie ... your cousin's little girl is so adorable! It always amazes me to hear of these kids who take on such adult situations with a grace and ease that adults rarely seem able to duplicate. That second shot really shows off her amazing deep eyes. WOW!!! And I'm so glad you shared that last shot - what an amazing shot of such a cool subject. I love how crisp the detail is on those tiny little water droplets.

Here's a few from me.

What's a week w/out a couple of soccer shots?! I don't want to find out. Logan had a GREAT GAME last week - scored a goal and had another assist. I love to see how his confidence is growing w/ each game.



(I just love how he snaps his fingers when he is REALLY into the game)

and a yellow rose that I got (of all places) when I took my car in for an oil change. I stuck it in one of our bushes to have some greenery around it.


Best,
GiGi

Amy, gorgeous shots! Love #1, 6 and 7, but #1 especially with the texture. Perfectly done. Eva's squishy face is way too adorable.

Jamie, wow about your cousin's daughter with cancer. DH is a cancer survivor and has volunteered at kid's camps for kids with cancer, and it is heartbreaking what they go through. They are so brave and tough! Great photos, love the ice and the last one is incredible.

GiGi, your action shots are so amazing. (I say that every week, but seriously!) Love the beautiful rose too.

Thanks everyone, I should have said she KICKED cancers butt! She had surgery, the tumour was removed, and they have told her that all the cancer is out. It's just an incredible story. She still has 7 rounds of chemo left though.

Gigi- I, too, love all your soccer shots..they are always so good and sharp!

Tracy, which camp was it? My brother and I went to HIS KIDS. My brother beat Leukemia. I absolutely LOVE that first one of yours! Too precious!

Oooh! I really like #7, Amy! Of course, they're all great!

Awesome shots this week Jamie! So glad to hear that that little girl beat it! I had a hard time with the cardinals. Love yours!

GiGi, LOVE Logan's face in the first one! I'm always a fan of the soccer shots!

So here's what I've been up to this week. I'll spare you the birds, since I did a separate thread.

Went manual focus on this one, and it could have been better.

Bailey enjoying a nice yard stick.

Please ignore the dog hair in the next two Wink Couldn't find the lint roller, but needed some pics in the Cards apparal for Opening Day.

The best I could get with the both of them. Either one would be looking and the other wouldn't, or my focus fell on the tree. Wink

Beautiful bee shot, Amber, saw it on FB yesterday. Honeybees (as you're learning, I think) are really quite docile. Smile I can't wait to start seeing a fresh batch of life in my garden again...if only the temps would go up for good here!

Steph, forgot to answer this earlier. He volunteered at a camp called Camp Good Times. Somewhere in southwestern BC, not quite sure where. How awesome that your brother beat leukemia!!

Amber, that last shot is phenomenal. I love, love, love the composition, simplicity, and mood of it!!!
