And now for Adrian...and he's all mine!



Another two of George from yesterday...

I tried to replicate my post processing from yesterday, but to no avail. I did not write down exactly what I'd done. So these two are done slightly differently. I'm not sure which are better...

Fun time out today!

Adrian and I went out to the woods near our house to try out the video camera and camera, for a quick half hour today. It was fun to try and learn how the video part of the camera works, and of course take some photo's. Here is the first one of George, and I'll post some more tomorrow, including some action shots of Adrian....

Henry the amazing photographer on the new camera

Well, my wonderful husband managed to get me a new camera, and it is fantastic! Actually Henry took these photo's below, and I think he did a pretty good job. He is learning a lot of the technicalities and really enjoys learning how to be a good photographer. These photos were taken indoors at around iso 2500 if I remember rightly. This camera is GREAT for low light photography. These photo's have not received any photoshop treatment. They have only been cropped and re-sized for the web. These were also taken at a shallow depth of field (I think it was about f2.8) so considering that I think Henry did pretty well on his selective focusing.

George is looking rather forlorn here because he has been sick all last night and all day today. Poor little boy. So I have been doing my best to look after him.

Here are Henry's best ones...

The lovely George

We had a great day a few weeks ago at a lovely country park, and here is a pic of George from that day. I wanted to see if I can still remember how to post these big images!

Okay, so maybe that is a bit too big! I will keep experimentingLOL!

Hi again!


I've not posted in a while, life has been too busy! But it's all been good. It has been children's birthday season, and we had twenty nine children over for a party for Tamasin's birthday, and seventeen for Henry's. George also had his birthday and he made do with a small celebration at our parent and toddler group at church, Teeny Tots. Have also been super busy working with Adrian helping him with his book (proofreading marathon!). But the end is in sight, the deadline is in about a week and we are well on track. Praise God!

I just tried to widen the margins on the blog, by changing the html code. I wonder if it worked...it means that the photo's will be bigger...

Added note: Yay! After a few tries, it worked!
The next thing is to design a nice header and background and put those in..
