Photos on Friday

I have so many pictures from this week, I thought I would link to a few more Friday themes today.

I finally set up the tripod and remote while the boys were at school to take some pictures of Sunflower and I.  Technically Sunflower was holding the remote most of the time, so she took these pictures.  And she took a lot of them! She took them as fast as the camera would allow.  Since my motivation for these photos was because I have very few pictures of myself with my mother (who died when I was 15) and I didn't want Sunflower to say the same, mission was definitely accomplished!

It was a fun way to spend time, and lest you think Sunflower sat uncharacteristically still...my camera takes pictures fairly quickly and...
I probably should have put make-up on, but I rarely do and it is about capturing true memories, right?

I am linking these to Deb Duty Photography's This or That Thursday.

Then I thought I would participate this week in Sky Watch Friday.  I love all the glorious skies other's capture though I still struggle to duplicate the true beauty of what I see.  This is almost what it looked like out on the Bay last weekend.

Then Favorite Photo Friday.  Too difficult to choose and I've already shared a few photos of this rainbow, but in this one, if you look closely, you can see the start of a double rainbow up top.  It really was stunning!

Lastly, this is my first time participating in Still Life Stand-Outs.  I saw the amazing shots from last time, so I feel a little shy.  But I got to play with my friend's new macro lens, and the narrow focus is oh so fun!
Still Life Standouts

That is it for today.  Be sure to check out some of those links to see some lovely eye candy.  There are some really talented artists out there!

No Greater Love said...

oh my...I love these. You should frame them and hang them on your walls. :) I don't even know which one I like the best...I love that middle one...but then I really like the one where she is blurred, but you can see the remote in her hand. too cute. And the one where she is playing...oh, I don't know. They are all great.

Margaret said...

Good job getting in the shot! I'm guilty about staying out, too. Love the one where she is close to the camera...clicking away. But they are all adorable and she will treasure them. The rainbow shot, tho, really caught my eye. Love it with the cross. We had showers and sun yesterday and I was getting whiplash looking for one as I drove down the road (with, thankfully, no wreck!!). Never saw one. So thanks for including yours :)

I love that you got yourself in some shots. I certainly don't get in enough of them. I have a tripod and a timer but my camera is a model that you can't use a remote with :(

em said...

I love the black and white of you two! ...and I'm diggin' the texture on the last photo!

Kathy said...

No need for makeup, you look so beautiful in that shot, the look on your face says so much.
