Temporary hiatus

We are on a temporary hiatus due to technical difficulties.
Keith has been having internet problems and Sharon has been having computer problems. Figure it wouldn't be fair to just post my pictures and boost my ego because I won EVERY week. 
Please subscribe to posts or check back to see when we are up and running again.  Hoping to only be gone or a week or two!!!
Thanks for understanding.

This week we chose rain.  One of us must have gotten flooded and rained in as there is only two pictures to choose from this week. 
A lot harder to get a picture and keep your camera dry than we thought it would be.   Luckily we did not melt so we will be back again next week with more pictures.

This week we chose cemeteries.  I am sure it was one of Sharon's favorite themes.  Those of you that know her will know how much of a "scaredy cat" she is!!!
I did get bitten by a zombie fire ant. My foot is starting to resemble what a zombie's foot would look like.

Rough water made to look smooth

This was a tough one!  It was really hard to find rough water.  We all need to live somewhere more exotic with babbling brooks and rapids I guess.
We hope you enjoy our attempts.

Monday, August 18, 2014


This week we chose a technique called panning.

Panning means using a slow shutter speed and swinging the camera to follow the motion of a moving object.  Because the camera swings at the same speed as the moving object, the moving object appears sharp in the photo.  The background, however, is still so the swinging motion of the lens makes it appear blurry and shows motion.

Car light trails

This week was so much fun.  Its really not that hard to create these pictures and the results are so cool. Of course the big challenge is to not get run over while trying to perch on a highway overpass or side of the road.
We would like to welcome back Keith from his sabbatical.

Birds are just so cute and there are so many possibilities with this theme.
Some of us may or may not have been pooped on during the making of this weeks blog post.
We hope you enjoy our feathered friends.

Black and white flower

Sharon chose this week and made it more challenging by choosing black and white. Its easy to get a pretty flower shot when in color. Flowers are so pretty and have such contrast. Hope you enjoy our attempts.

Shadow results - Sydney's Reach for the Sun 56%

The guest poster this week was my 10 year old daughter Sydney.   She took her picture all by herself at Pedernales State Park in Texas. I thought it turned out awesome, I voted for her too. She is however, grounded for winning and is never allowed to be a guest poster again.
We had a total of 59 votes. We have never had that many votes before.  Thanks so much for spreading the word and for making Sydney feels so special!!

Sorry I am late updating the blog.  We were driving to Canada from Texas and just arrived last night.  two days and 28 hours stuck in a car with my huband, 4 kids and a dog. I wonder why I totally forgot when I was finally freed some that special kind of hell?

We had fun playing with shadows this week.  We may have to choose this theme again in the future sometime. There are so many ways to be creative with shadows. 
We have invited someone to be a guest poster this week.  We are keeping who it is a secret until we post the results on Sunday night.  We thought it would be nice to stir things up a little bit.
Hope you enjoy the pictures this week, they were fun to do!

Been a really busy couple of weeks for me with all the school activities and end of the school year. I was a loser and was busy having fun.  I ran out of time to take my picture for this week. Sharon and Keith took pity on me and we decided this week would be any random picture that we choose, no theme at all. Hope you enjoy our choices this week and sorry its a little late!!! We will resume with our normal themes next week.

Broken water balloon

This week we had fun playing with water balloons.  I would like to say "no balloons were harmed in the making of this post", but I think we may have caused a world wide shortage of balloons with the amount we used.  Its trickier than it looks to get a shot while the balloon is breaking.
