snaps: my boy and his grandmothers, update post 13

Had a really nice visit w/ my mom and grandma this weekend and got to snap a few pictures while there. These are mostly just snaps as my family is not the most cooperative when I take out my camera. C&C always appreciated, but even I can see a lot of the problems here.

I am just pleased to have these moments of Loli w/ his grandmother and great grandmother. You can tell he really loves the time he spends w/ his "Nanny" and "Great Memaw." And that makes my heart go (((SQUEEZE))).

all taken w/ my 50mm at 100 ISO ...

1. f/2.0 ss=1/640

2. f/2.0 ss=1/1600

3. exposure on this one was really bad originally, so i played around a bit and came up w/ this ...

4. f/2.0 ss=1/640

5. here's a play on #4 ... I kinda like it ...

6. f/2.0 ss=1/640 [only processing is the conversion here]

7. f/2.0 ss=1/250

I'm working on some collages and will be back once I have something to share. Smile

GiGi, I really loved seeing these. I can totally tell how much he loves them, and even more, how much they love them. I can't wait to see the collage!

I love those photos...they actually made me cry bc they reminded me of my grandmother who passed away in december. Your son is so lucky to be able to have them in his life and you can tell he really loves them.

GiGi, they are so sweet. You know, it made me realize how few pics I have of the kids with my mom and she even lives with us! She's the only grandma left too. Thanks for inspiring me girl. I loved them, but the last two are too cute.

It's taken me a lot longer to get to my collages than I imagined, but my first draft of one is at a point where I can share now. Any/all opinions MUCH appreciated!
