4th of July…. Postmortem.

Postmortem as in, it’s behind us.  No one died.  No skin was burned, and no ear drums ruptured.  All fingers accounted for.  Except for the critters and the 2 year old, it was a complete success.  The animals are not fans of anything loud and flashing, and apparently the 2 year old isn’t either.  She was OK with smoke bombs though.  As long as her big cousin (superhero in her eyes) is keeping her safe.

Visiting a neighbor (sort of…)

I have a good friend who blogs with the regularity of a clock. At three minutes to 9 every day. So that’s what her blog is called. She buys duck eggs from us from time to time, and asked folks she knew about their Christmas traditions, and my wife gave her a quick synopsis. I was tapped for some photos. The night shots are from last year at Westlake, this years shots will be here shortly, and the cake photos are what a “professional” shoots when he is is own customer (my favorite!).

Here’s the link to her blog:

Her blog is worth bookmarking!

You should see the other guy….

Ok, so not really.  A little fella I know managed to go missing both his front top teeth at the same time.  He was very proud of his WWF smile..  Ah the simple things that bring joy to a child!

It’s almost out of my system…

Almost.  I have really enjoyed my little trip back into the world of film.  I don’t know that I will make a habit of this.  I can see myself shooting a lot of stuff for myself with film.  It’s really let me be part of the moment, not just watching it.  It’s nice though to shoot, and not deal with post till, well, later.  If at all.  At most, the shots I have up here in film (the entire site) are just shot, scanned, and uploaded.  I will nuke a dust spot if it’s really distracting but that’s it.  Oh and I crop just a bit.  Sometimes.  Deets: Nikon F5, 50mm 1.4, 400NC.

I’m going to let this shot stand on it’s own.  I still chuckle when I look at it.  I shot it earlier this week…

A fairly good time.

I got to spend Friday night with my girls and extended family at the Stanwood Camano fair.  It’s a true small town fair, with a cute little midway (goodbye $60), great food and lots of folks that we know!  We love living in this great little community.  Here’s on of a little guy trying his luck with the dart throw.  Everyone got a prize!

I also met a guy who does white dove releases at weddings!  How cool would that be!  Check out his site here.

Have a great day!

Flowers in her hair….

Very busy weekend.  Lots of changes at our church, a tea with wonderful women most of them old enough to be my grandmother.  A birthday party for a very special 5 year old and a “memorial service” for a family/person who isn’t dead.  I did have a little bit of decompression time on Sunday, and my oldest let me try my hand at braiding, with some Ranunculus repens for color.  Nothing like a pro, but not bad for a Dad, right?


Edit: link to pp&p blog, that’s what I’m talking about.

Birthday Party!

Another birthday party!  I shot this quite a while ago, and then lost track of the images to upload for my blog untill I was sorting some of the wedding photos from the last wedding I shot.  Here are a few quick grabs,

The lady of honor!  What a gem!

Not a big fan of the buffet!

I think everyone had a good time!

Just cause she’ll kill me, here is the gal who organized the party.  (not the little one)

Thanks for the chance to share this wonderful day with all of you!

Happy coordinated birthday!

Filed under: Family, Kids — Tags: , , , , , , — photobby @ 10:31 pm

I wish I could dress like this.  Not like a girl, but coordinated, sharp, and always looking “ready to go”.  We were honored to be invited to a *princess* party at a close friend’s house the other night.  It was all family, and us.  Great welcoming people with wonderful hospitality, even if we were late (I prefer my pizza cold!).  Here are a few frames from the evening.  I didn’t catch every moment, just a few as I was enjoying the wonderful company.

The Birthday Girl!

The little sister

Here’s Mom & Auntie

Here’s dad, King of his castle!, alternate title “I have two girls and weddings cost how much?”

Thanks for letting me post the shots!

Fun at Fort Casey

Filed under: Family, Kids — Tags: , , — photobby @ 9:17 am

We went camping last weekend at Camp Casey. There is this really neat old military base there with old concrete bunkers, rooms, with some wonderful spaces for the kids to play. Great fun and beautiful weather!
