365 in 52 [2013] ~ Week Twenty-Six

We are settling into a nice routine of summer time rest and play. Anna had a difficult week and is growing more sensitive to me talking about it, so I will respect her privacy and just ask for prayers in helping her feel in control of herself.

I wonder if anyone accepted my challenge of shooting every day? I did it! I didn’t shoot all share-worthy images so I’ll just share a few favorites.

Day 176 ~ Hilarity Ensues

Dominic and Rocky started playing Raving Rabbids again (don’t you love rediscovered games?) and they were customizing their rabbits… oh boy! I love this slightly blurry capture… pure emotion and joy!

Day 176 ~ Poodle Doodle Pose

Charlie is supposed to be a Labradoodle, but he really does look like a pure Poodle. This is his favorite pose and I loved the light that was spilling in from the front of the house.

Day 176 ~ Smiling Celery

I shot this for the June Shallow Depth-of-Field challenge on my CM blog circle, but decided to go with something more personal… so this shot ended up here! I like how the celery looks like it’s smiling, a perspective I hadn’t seen before.

Day 177 ~ Sunset Crepe Myrtle

We’ve had the most gorgeous sunsets lately and my neighbor has a stunning crepe myrtle tree in bloom, so I combined the two beauties to get this!

Day 178 ~ Details in Yellow

I’ve pulled out my old SB-600 Speedlite to try my hand at it with the D700. I was able to stop down to f/18 to get this image and got lots more of the flower in focus. I really need to practice more.

Day 178 ~ Rec Center Pool

Dominic joined me and Anna at the rec center for some play time and we tried playing pool. The cue sticks were too big for Dominic, but Anna gave it a try. We had fun!

Day 179 ~ Afternoon Snack

On the hottest day of the year so far, I foolishly agreed to take the kids to the Austin Zoo. What was I thinking??? We had a good time, and we made it a short trip. The kids had fun feeding the animals, though those goats are darn pushy!

Day 182 ~ Feather Fluff

I needed some breathing room, so I grabbed my macro and went for a walk. Ahhh… my Zen. Found a feather and wanted to get a different take on it. I like it!

Thanks for looking! I hope everyone had a great week last week and has another great one this week!!!
