Lisa’s 365 Project 112/365 – Beach Week Day 3

Here are a few more pictures from our beach trip this year.  This first picture is one of my favorites.  I can’t put my finger on exactly why….Its just something about the way the bucket and sand are in the foreground and then in the background you see my daughter standing closer to the water looking for sand crabs and then the sea right behind her.

It rained a few days while we were at the beach. I tried to capture some of the dramatic thunderhead clouds from our balcony.  I was also tried to capture lightning, which is a lot harder than I thought it would be.  I didn’t even realize that I captured the picture of lightning below.  It’s not a great picture…but I was just tickled that I captured it.

Lisa’s 365 Project 111/365 – Beach Week – Day 2

Today I’m posting a few  pictures of the girls on some the rides at Broadway at the Beach and Family Kingdom. Growing up we always went to Family Kingdom and the old Pavilion.  They closed the old Pavilion in 2006, which made me sad.  I liked that park better than Family Kingdom, but my girls could care less.  They are happy with going to Family Kingdom and Broadway at the Beach so we’ll stick with that tradition for now.

This year my little one decided she wanted to ride with the big girls. She looked worried and my middle daughter thought it was funny, but if you look back at one of my posts from last year, you’ll see that she was the one with the worried face. Check it out here.

Lisa’s 365 Project 110/365 – Beach Week

I totally forgot to post yesterday, but I forgive myself for it.  🙂

We had a wonderful vacation this year at Myrtle Beach.  We took lots of pictures and I will share a few of them with you this week.

These are pictures from a restaurant on the boardwalk under the Skywheel called Land Shark Bar & Grill.  The wait to get in wasn’t long, however they took an extremely long time to bring our food out to us.  Oh yea…and when it finally got out to us the waitress dropped my oldest daughter’s food.  Other than that, I enjoyed eating out on the boardwalk, but we probably will not go back to that restaurant.





Lisa’s 365 Project 107/365 – Blast from the past #3

I guess the unofficial theme for this week is old photos I like.  Here is another one from our Hawaii trip. When my husband went to play golf we went down town and took a tour of an old Hawaiian government building.  The statue is of King Kamehameha.  Not a bad pictures for being in fully automatic mode.  You can see the back of my daddy in the bottom left of the picture.  His hair wasn’t as gray 6 years ago.  This picture was taken with my first SLR camera, a Canon Digital Rebel XT.

Here is another blast from the past…..I was looking back at some of our old pictures and here is one of us in Hawaii on Waikiki Beach on the island of Oahu in 2007.


The Way I View – Summer Life

Since I have joined the monthly photography challenge, this year seems to be going by really fast.  It’s that time again… Time for my monthly post in the series with the nice ladies at Clickin Moms.  This month’s theme, Summer Life.

In my household, there’s not a lot happening in regards for summer life.  When the kids get out of school for the summer I stop trying to keep a schedule and we just try to have fun.  So far this summer we’ve been to the beach, spent some time at the neighborhood pool, celebrated the 4th of July, and had fun with family and friend.  Most importantly we celebrated my youngest daughter’s birthday.

Please keep the circle going…. Don’t forget to go over and check out my friend Lisa Deering to see how she views Summer Life.

Our Seashells

On the last day of our beach trip, I took Ashleigh and Sydney out to find seashells.  I promised that we would do a craft project with the seashells.  Well, I haven’t made good on my promise yet, but I did get some good ideas from Ashleigh today.

Discussing our project today helped me decide what today’s  picture a day challenge picture would be, and here it is…

Our Beach Trip

Our family took a trip to the beach a couple of weeks ago, and I should be ashamed of myself because I haven’t processes all of the pictures.  I’ve been shooting in RAW a few months now and I haven’t gotten the workflow thing together.

I really like sepia tone photo and the vintage look so I always try to find pictures that will look good with those tones. Here are a few pics that I’ve processed so far.

More pics to come after whenever I take time to process them.

Orlando Trip

I recently went on the 8th grade class trip with my daughter.  It as a very interesting trip, to say the least, but the kids had lots of fun.  We went on the boardwalk at Downtown Disney and I had an opportunity to take a few night pictures.  I did not have a tripod with me so I placed my camera on poles that they had around the boardwalk.  Here are a few of my favorites:

We also went to universal studios and they had on display the DeLorean from Back to the Future.  That was one of my favorite movies when I was a little girl.  I needed to catch up with the crew so I got a quick shot of the car.  I didn’t get a chance to get up close to see if the flux capacitor was there.  But here is what I got:

Not the best picture, but it will have to do for now.
