Playground Time with Charlotte

  This morning this darling little girl stopped me in my tracks at one of the local parks.  What a cutie!  Up the steps, down the slide.  Up the steps, down the slide.  She was having a great time with her mom watching her go ’round and ’round.  Made me think about my kiddos years […]

Daily Prompt: RSVP (Celebration) — Birthday Celebration!

365 Project 2013 — 20130306 Cece with New Lens

Yes, I was still playing with my new lens on March 6.  This image of Cece was one I was quite happy with in terms of being in focus, since I was learning to manual focus with this new lens, the Nikon 43-86mm f3.5 AI.  I was surprised that she stayed still long enough for […]

365 Project 2013 — 20130303 Leopold
