Random pictures on the new camera

The boys fond a toad!
I love some of the effects this camera will do...this shot looks so cool with the butterfly bush blurry up front but focused in behind....kind of like life!
Cameron was climbing above me here..such a clear shot for a time when I was pretty nervous that he might fall !!!

I don't 'think' he's eating sand!!! He had no idea I was taking his picture... I was atleast 25 feet away from him!

This I took from the bottom of the slide. The camera has a an LCD viewer that moves out from the camera....like some camcorders do. I didn't even have to stick my head in the slide...just the camera.

Again another shot I took from 25-30 feet away with no one realizing I was. If he'd realized it he would have turned and said 'chee'!!!

This is in a garden behind the park.... again taken from a good 30+ feet away...I LOVE this camera!!!
Could be in a perennial magazine I think!!!

Family Photos

I just needed to post these pics so my friend Jenn will have something new to look at when she gets her internet up and running in England and checks out the blog. She was hoping I'd post pics taken with the new camera (our van was broken into and our camera and a bunch of stuff was stolen).
These pics were taken by Mark Stephens of Exeter as a way to build up a portfolio. They turned out great...he's an amazing photographer.
The tall lovely blond, for those who don't know, is the exchange student we had last school year, Edith. She is from Estonia and left about a month ago to return home.
