Letters to My Sons: April

Wednesday, April 16th, 2014

Dear Pookah:


You had your first baseball game last week.

As an obsessed MWAC, I had grand plans of taking all of these actions shots when you stepped up to bat. I wanted that emotion, the first hit, the look on your face. I wanted it all.

I got the back of you through a fence.  LOL

When you did step up to the plate and you did get a hit, I was so excited that I almost DROPPED my camera. LOL

I was so proud of you!!!

And I saw the joy on your face as you ran to first base. I saw the joy on your Daddy’s face. And I knew it was reflected in mine.

While I was initially disappointed that I didn’t capture exactly what I wanted, I realized that I would always have that memory of your first hit.

I can’t wait to see the rest!




Because I’m Happy…..

This week’s theme is GET HAPPY!

Show us photos that make you feel like a room without a roof…




For me, this weekend, it was this. It was Pookah’s first T-ball game. Opening day. He got a hit! I was so busy screaming I missed getting the shot of him actually hitting the ball! But it was a proud Mama moment. And despite the pollen, he enjoyed himself for a few hours.

I can’t wait to see what you guys come up with!

Project 52 Week 12: Rule of Thirds

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

In photography, there are a few rules . One of the most popular and hardfast rules for composition, is the Rule of Thirds. Basically, you divide you photo up in to nine squares. Like so…

The idea is to place your subject at those intersecting points. NOT the center. This will balance your photo better and lead to a visually more interesting photo. Here is my offering for the week…

How did I do?
