No wonder my kids struggle to learn to read and spell

Crazy ABCs, with a focus on silent letters. "C is for czar" and so on. Funny, but kind of depressing too.

Day 5: High Angle

For day 5 I was to take a shot from a high angle. Well, I did take photos today, but mostly of life as it happens and nothing too artistic. There was just too much laundry, grocery shopping, and preparing my family room for a whole wall of built in cabinets and shelves today.

Anyway, here's the highest angle shot I did get. That's a cicada on my youngest son's hand. They are ugly but harmless bugs that "sing" a loud buzzing tone that you almost feel more than hear. They are the sound of summer, and fascinating to little boys.

Day 4: Something Green

Day 4 of my 30 Day Photography Challenge is "something green".
f 2.2, 1/1250, ISO 100

My son's amazing green eyes (I took this after having to give him a talking to about not doing what he was told. He has a such a tender heart.)

I did do a bit of touch-up on this. I lightened it a bit and used Coffeeshop Blog's EyeBright to bring out the green. Here is what it looks like straight from the camera.
