Hello Lovelies! I've been a bit under the weather on and off this past week. Not so much with a cold but more feeling terribly drained, weak, and down right tired to the point that I've had absolutely no energy to do much of anything but rest. I tried several times to get on the computer to work but I never stayed on long before feeling sleepy and losing my focus. It was especially hard having Jedidiah out of town for the past 4 1/2 days. He always seems to go out of town at the worst possible times! I'm thankful to have him back.
On a brighter note, for now (and hopefully from now on), I'm feeling much better. These photos were taken about two weeks ago. I had hoped to have them up sooo much sooner. But I'm a work in progress so bare with me as I work out the kinks in making this a fantastic blog! Which by the way I'm so happy for the little group of followers that are reading along! Thank you!
Anyhoo, I'm off subject again, as I said, these photos were taken a few weeks back during one of the random bursts of warm weather we've been having lately. Hasn't that been so lovely?! There have been so many of them on and off this year. We try our best to get out whenever we can on these random warm days. It's sometimes hard because they usually fall on school days so by the time we get the kids, the sun is already setting. On this day we took the girls to our favorite wetland nature center. It's conveniently very close to our house. If you're ever interested in me taking your photos, I recommend this location.
We walk this park often and because the sun was starting to set we regrettably didn't stay as long as I would have liked. It's wonderful living so close to a large mountain range but the down side is that the sun seems to disappear much faster. It also gets cold the second the sun disappears. On the plus side, I finally got my darn 85mm back! Yea! I sent it out like 7 weeks ago to get cleaned due to some internal debris. I was promised 2 weeks max start to finish, boy were they waaay off and horribly rude. I'll learn to take names and be more assertive next time. With a full arsenal on hand it was fun shooting with a 35mm, 50mm, & 85mm, although after being spoiled with my L series lenses jumping back to my 85mm 1.4 just didn't seem to have the same punch as the other two do. An up grade is definitely in my future...just not my near future cause that lens is crazy expensive!
This girl and that stick. She dragged it through half the park before I finally said something is going to lose an eye! LOL!
I'm married to the dorkiest guy I know. I couldn't be luckier! I have dozens of "Where's Jedidiah" photos. Haha I should put together a collage of all these photos. It would be fun to see all the places he's popped up!
My beautiful curly haired girl. She was such a help offering to carry my camera bag so I could photography easier. I also wasn't wearing the most sensible shoes on this mostly muddy trail. This wasn't well thought out. Chloie can be intense but I'm so grateful for her constant help.
