Gary and Kathy picked up the girls from school last night so KC and I too advantage of the easy morning and took Floyd for a walk to La Farm for brunch. Along the way we met some friends from the neighborhood and sat with them. I had their spinach quiche. It was so amazing last time I had it. This time was no different.
Again, I neglected to crank down my aperture and the back half of my quiche is out of focus. Man! I'm slow. Remedial lesson 1 for the day: 3.2 isn't going to cut it that close up.

Eventually we joined the rest of the family up at the lake and the typical pandemonium ensued. I showed Grandma the videos of the girls' meets from last week and as we were on the computer, she mentioned to me the picture KC had shown her of Macy doing a handstand on a diving board. I explained to her what the girls were doing and she expressed a desire to see them do it again. They immediately obliged. When I say immediately, I mean, I didn't have time to grab my camera before they were in the water! Delaney was kind enough to do it again so I could capture it. Even then, it was an over exposed shot. Lesson 2 for the day: When requesting someone do something you think you may want to shoot, have the camera ready BEFORE making said request.

Part of the weekend routine is tubing. I have lots of shots of the kids on the tubes from the back of the boat so when Gary started to swing them around in front of the dock, I decided to try to get a different look. I got a great shot composition wise but it's not even close to sharp. After shooting for about an hour, I realized that I had the camera set to single point focus to get the picture of my quiche. When shooting action, I need to have it in continuous focus mode. Lesson 3 for the day: Check your dang settings before starting to shoot for the day.
I'm a mother of 2 girls living in NC. I've dabbled in photography on and off but really this is just for fun
