Stella in the gardens


20100817_0002.jpg

A couple more pictures of Lily and Stella at the Urbana arboretum. We had gone there to try and get some (a bit belated) birthday photos. It was really hot and humid and the girls were being hostile subjects. They just weren’t into it. And to be honest, I wasn’t exactly feeling the mojo either. So I broke out the film cameras and just starting shooting for fun.

This was taken inside the shade of a gazebo. It’s probably my favorite of Stella that day, but that darned sign on the left! A lack of viewfinder awareness on my part. I should have changed corners.

Lily ask to take some pictures so I let her use my DSLR while I shot with the Mamiya TLR.

Goal!

Goal!

At school Lily has a folder that will hold all of her writing. She has to decorate the folder with pictures of her choice. Yesterday she specifically asked me to get a picture of her scoring a goal so that she could put it on her folder. Perhaps she’s just a bit too comfortable with a camera always pointed at her. Bad parent, bad!

And my alternate “Goal” shot:

Playing around the lake

Bumps and Bruises

There were a few bumps and bruises, but luckily nothing serious. Here Lily got a cut while swimming, most likely from a shell on the bottom of the lake.

Elation

Lucy really enjoyed getting pushed on the swing by her uncle. She’s right at the age where she’s too big for these swings, but remembers them longingly. The swing is attached very securely and Lucy got to go “Super High.”

The Lake At Night

Finally, there were even a few minutes for a night time shot of the lake. Looks calm, but I was getting eaten alive!

Tomorrow, baseball.

Easter Lily in Black and White

Easter Lily

One of the final blooms on our Easter Lily. I know that you can transplant these lilies, but I’m not really sure what type of care the plant needs. I suppose that I’ll have to research this a bit more.

Chairs at Sunset

Another sunset / shadow picture. I’m not too sure why I am so enamored with these pictures. I’m sure to most people they’re just boring pictures of chairs, but to me there’s something there. I just have to figure out what that something is….
