Summer fun at the park

In between Saturday errands and chores, we snuck over for a couple hours at the nearby park. Lovin' the summer sunshine....
I have been having way too much fun now that I have computer that doesn't take 20 full minutes to boot up. And, in photoshop, I can actually run an action set without it crashing... so, I had fun tweaking these photos in a not-so-traditional sense. :-)

And, Ry's first time in a swing by himself (I had to hunt down a park with a 'bucket' swing like this)...he was so content and just chilled in here for about 15 minutes.

You are such an awesome photographer!!! I love these! Wish I could have gone to the park with you! Dang! Why can't vacation last 4 weeks?!?!?!

BTW, I totally thought of you when I heard the news about Michael Jackson. Sad, eh!?

Love you!

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion pictures...it is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?
