Tubby Cat Was Meant to Fly

Evelyn's song parody she wrote for the talent show, and my gif:
Tubby Cat was meant to flyyyyy, paws up and touch the skyyyyyy.
Let's do this one last time, paws up! We're higher than a Tubby-copter!

I knew I saved this blog for a reason!


If only to display an animated gif! One of my first, crack me up! I love my Tubby Cat

Easter 2011

We went to the arboretum to take pictures after church. I think this will be a new tradition.

Last Day of the Year 2010

Photobucket

a winter garden

Yesterday was unseasonably warm, so the girls played outside for a while. Of course, we had mud too, but that was part of the fun!

Photobucket

the last snow

I had the chance to try out my new Tamron 70-300 zoom lens. I really like it, but i had trouble panning. i guess i'll have to practice more. it's hard to pan with a heavy lens, so another lens may be more suitable for that effect. I just wanted to be ready by the time Erick starts racing again.

I really like this lens; i focus it manually inside, but outside, i used the auto focus and it worked quickly and well most of the time.

I love the neutral background of winter. I love the browns and grays. I love the texture of bare trees and grasses. Some of my favorite pics were taken on mild winter days.

Here are some pics of our happy, muddy day.

Emmy was so proud of her snow man. he's sort of reincarnated from a previous snowman.

Photobucket

My littlest one didn't bother with unmelted snow. she went straight for the puddles.


Photobucket

She's using a snowball maker to transport hay, mud, and melted snowman pee.

And rocks, we can't play outside without using rocks.

Back to the puddle we go!

Madge.

Photobucket

I love using this long lens to capture shots of Madge. I can sit back far enough that she is disinterested in what I'm doing. It's lovely not having that wet sticky nose all over the front of my lens.

Making plans for playing ball with Madge

Photobucket

Not the best shot technically, but I adore the textural background of my ornamental grass and sedum.

Taking a break and thinking about her favorite food: egg salad sandwiches

Christmas and Candy Canes


Photobucket

Yeah, and so after all of the extravagance of christmas, and wallet-throwup everywhere, all i can say is "i want a....!!!"

I've spent my time off perusing my favorite photoblogs. I love photoblogs! If i didn't have a job that forced me to leave the house everyday, I'd spend my entire day reading photoblogs, discovering photoblogs, adding photoblogs to my google reader.

Anyhow I stumbled on this site
and saw this book:
Visual Poetry: A Creative Guide for Making Engaging Digital Photographs by Chris Orwig

and added it to my wish list.

The end.
