Caring Tamasin and Sleepy George

Tamasin is such a caring big sister to her little brother George. And George loves her to bits! Its a shame I cut his hand off though! (not in real life- in the photo). I couldn't resist this other photo also, taken yesterday at the school fete..poor tired boy!

Going for a wee wet walk

Today the children had no school so we went for a walk to the shops to get some sweets!  Joel found a worm, and asked, "mum, is this nature?"  I'm sure I have taught him about these things before.....!  Charis had fun riding her bike until one of the tyres deflated so much I had to carry the bike and she had to push the buggy.  Then on the way back we got caught in torrential rain and looked like drowned rats.  I felt particularly sorry for poor little George...

Checking the colors....

I just tried to do a postcard of the lovely Joel and Tamasin.  I am still struggling with getting the skin tones right.  The colors always look off on this blog, compared to in my photo editor.  If you have any ideas, please let me know!  Does anyone know how to check the colorspace for blogger, or safari or firefox??

Practicing getting correct exposure

I read an article on exposure today and learned about how to achieve perfect exposure.  So..... excited as I was to practice, I took some pictures of Joel watching the TV!   Well, I don't know if the exposure was perfect, but I was glad to have made a tiny bit of progress today!
