A Gathering of All the Kids….

April 7th, 2014

So I have a confession to make: I don’t make friends easily.  Oh I’m friendly. I can hold a conversation well. I basically get along with everyone. I have lots of acquaintances.

I’ve lived in Atlanta for 10 years now and it’s just within the last 5 years that I discovered I had friends here.

And now that we all have kids…well, it’s a beautiful thing.

A few of my friends and I get together every blue moon to have wine and food while the kids are running around having the time of their lives.

It’s the perfect playdate.

The kids had so much fun. They are a rowdy bunch. It helps that they are all about the same age( seriously, most of them were born within months of each other). But I love it that Pookah is growing up with kids who I think, will be friends for life.

Because their Mama’s said so. :-)

But anyhoo, we had fun the adults that is, watching the kids play, gossiping, complaining. laughing, dranking, eating and just being us.

I tried to get a photo of all the kids together. Like a usually do.  And got these…..

Some people would get frustrated that no one was sitting still for the perfect group photo. Maybe when they are all teenagers, we can work that out. But for now, I always end up with the perfect photos that showcase EXACTLY who they are, at this time in our lives.

Project 52 Week 12: Rule of Thirds

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…

rule-of-thirds
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…
