20. In The Park

Tiny and Lola had to wake up at the crack of dawn this morning to meet some new friends in the park and take photos. They were hoping that the weather would be cooler if they went earlier. The lighting was wonderful but the mosquitos were big enough to carry them away!

7. Circle In A Square

One of Tiny’s friends recently told her about crystal ball photography. It can give the effect of taking a photo through a fish eye lens. Or if photographed from further away she can get even more creative, especially during sunrise and sunsets. The ball turns the reflection upside down similar to taking a photo on the inside of a spoon.

She ordered her 80mm crystal ball on Amazon for just $16.00. She can’t wait to take it on future trips with other photography friends to experiment and see what kind of fun shots she can come up with!

27. Memories

During this time of year I always think back to my memories of my kids starting a new school year. I began the tradition of them holding a sign with the date and what grade they would be starting when they were very young. The photo HAD to be taken on the very first day. Over the years their expressions changed a lot! During the early elementary years they held their signs with pride and gave me giant smiles. When they entered middle school their smiles were forced and their eyes were rolling. In high school sometimes they went along just to shut me up or I would have to chase them as they tried to leave the house without doing it all together. It was a game that I didn’t mind playing because I loved the photos so much.

When school ended and they left home I was sometimes surprised by them sending me photos of themselves holding a sign they made on their own to mark an important first; a first day of college or a first day on the job.

Now they are taking their own photos of their kids firsts’.  I hope while they are taking photos they will also be remembering when they were the one holding the sign. And at least once I hope they have to chase one of them down the driveway waving a sign in one hand and a camera in the other!

I decided that Tiny  taking a photo of  her little friend wearing a backpack would be a good way to bring this memory to life. But because it’s such a happy memory for me I decided to take the photo myself!

16. Frame Within A Frame

This week Tiny and her little dog Lola attended a show at a gallery showcasing the work of a local pet photographer. She was pleasantly surprised to see that a large framed portrait of her and Lola had been included.
