{P52} Week*5

The theme for The Photographer Within challenge comes from Lady Gaga this week….


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!)


New P52…A year in Song!

The newly formed Photographer Within has come up with a truly fun way to complete a project 52 for 2014 and I am definitley going to try and jump in! Every week they will post a new song for an image inspiration! This week’s song is Brand New Day by Sting.
Here is my take for week #1:



we arrived just before dawn for our daily walk

Pup watched the sun come up….


Then she was off into the weeds..her absolute favorite thing to do!

P52 Week 31~ Father~

Daddy is sometimes the one you are silly with in the hotel pool after a long day of travel ๐Ÿ˜€

Or the one who teaches you how to drive the boat….


He’s the one who helps take the fish off of the line because although you are finally able to touch a worm to put it on the hook and catch your big bass, removing the hook is still too much….



He’s the guy to take all the cousins night fishing off the dock in the cold…nightfish

and play all day with you {and your cousins ๐Ÿ™‚ }cousintrouble

Gotta love this guy ๐Ÿ™‚

P52..Week 26 ~ Emotion~

The theme for the project 52 week 26 is “emotion”. Youngest and Oldest have finished their swim season so now they are left with “summer”..which is apparently “boring” at times. Yesterday we did some kitchen science using vinegar and baking soda to create some “explosions” and inflate balloons as well as play with green goo which had the bonus of turning hands green. The emotion we got from the teens was surprise+wonder and joy= AWESOME!
