 Thanks for stopping by our “game”. Check out how Keli was involved in this month’s theme!

 

Cellphonography

Oldest bought herself a new camera with her birthday money so she has been my companion on some recent photo walks :). Since I’m spending time explaining to her I am not really taking pictures myself, however today I decided to just use my cell phone as she was doing her thing…

It was a great reminder of the idea that the best camera is the one you have with you!

Here is a shot Oldest caught of the pup and I discussing why it would be a very bad idea to jump into the creek ;)

It is great to see Oldest grow in photography …. the pup appreciates the walk venues ….so it was a win for all involved:)

{Life + Lens} March Challenge…Out of Focus

Been a little crazy around here, however I grabbed a quick cell shot as we walked the pup…Y Cell edits_3_201418 Saturday morning soccer..sure brought back some memories!

Processed with watercolor and under painting to achieve this month theme of “Out of Focus”.

Thanks for stopping by, take a minute to travel around the circle to see how these talented ladies interpreted the theme!

Thanks to Oldest for donning her old pointe shoes to capture these images (not that it takes much arm twisting, I’ve discovered this is a sure way to get her in front of the camera….allow her to wear her pointe shoes! She adores ballet so much now that she is on pointe ….she actually WANTS me to take her picture!)
