Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 19

Hi everyone! This was a fun week, with a lot of variety of photos and experiences. The weather has also been really warm and sunny, so it’s finally Spring-y and even Summery out lately! It’s pretty nice, especially after the long, cold winter we had. I mean, I know we don’t get ten feet of snow like some places, but holy cow it was grey and chilly for such a long time. I’m really enjoying wearing tank tops and shorts these days. It’s awesome! On to the photos!

Mon, May 7 ~ I went for TWO walks on Monday, and actually made it to 10,000 steps that day. It was awesome! I loved walking by the water with a friend. We had a great time, and I got this awesome shot!

Catch the Moment 2018 – Week 15

Hello, hello! It’s been a cold and dreary week, and for part of it, I was in a real funk. Luckily, after some writing and reading, that funk has lifted and now I feel a lot more peaceful and myself. So, yay! Who knows what the heck that was all about! Anyway, I did pretty well taking photos on my Canon this week. Half are from that, and half from my phone. I hope you enjoy them!

Mon, April 9 ~ The trees are trying to be Spring-y! Even if the temperatures (cold, 40s F) and sunshine level (i.e., hardly any) are not yet on board!

2018 Catch the Moment – Week 12

This was one of the coolest weeks ever, and you’ll see why down below!

078 | Mon, March 19 ~ Spring is trying to come to town! There’s sunshine some of the time, but still lots of temps in the 30s (Fahrenheit). Still, the little blooms, and the pink cherry trees are definite reminders that Spring will be here in full sometime hopefully soon.

My Very First DSLR Camera!

Can I just say how excited I am? I am really excited! I just got my first DSLR!! My wonderful husband got it for me, after I’d been jonesing for one for a while now. Especially since I took my first photography class this spring. It was called Momtography, put on by Beryl Ayn Young. I’m glad that I still have access to all the videos, because I’m still re-watching them, and learning more. Anyway, I was able to practice the steps in that class with the help of my wonderful sis in law, Cinnamon, who loaned me her camera, a Canon Rebel T5i! I loved it! And when I went researching to see what I might want to get for myself, I saw there were a few newer models in that same line. So, Joe got me the Canon EOS Rebel T6i, and it’s pretty rad. I look forward to taking and sharing a lot of pictures from it!

Even Homer is excited about learning more about photography, because the other day, he said excitedly, “Mama, let’s go out and take pictures of nature together!” So I got my new camera, and he took his iPad, and here are some of the images we took on our outing together!

Catch the Moment – Week 16

106 | April 15, Fri – Homer and I had breakfast together! He cracked me up with the stuff he said! In this shot, he is saying, “Foolish mortals! You will never defeat the Napkin Boss!” I love this kid. (A little bit later, he held a wedding between the syrup and sugar. Seems like a match made in heaven to me. 😉 )
