"Fall"ing Into Photography

::To see full size, click on the photo::

Ahh, that's my favorite kind of photo. When the subject is unaware they are being photographed. I cannot take credit for this one. As it turns out, Stephen's daddy has quite the eye for photography. Of course, I have to ask you, who could go wrong with Stephen for a subject? The kid is a natural camera magnet.

The photo above was taken two weekends ago when Stephen's dad took him to the park so I could have some time to myself. What that means is, Stephen, bless his sweet little O heart, was getting on my last nerve. But, never mind that ... His daddy took this photo with his camera phone and I did very little editing. I was just so happy to see that Stephen stopped running in circles long enough to focus on something. He's just like his mama. He can't stand still and appreciate the beauty around him for being so controlled by racing thoughts. His daddy told me that he was fascinated by the leaves falling from the trees and floating down the creek; he thought it was a kodak moment. And, he probably wanted to rub into my face the fact that Stephen behaved well for him

Last week, we went to the Fall Festival and I got some really good shots of Stephen. As usual, I'm running behind and I'll try to have those uploaded before Thanksgiving.

Hope y'all have a great weekend.

You're right...that's an excellent picture. Stephen is a cutie, no doubt about that!

But boy, can I sure understand the 'children getting on the nerves' thing. LOL

Can your husband take my kids to the park too? Pretty please? ;)

Just lovely. That is a perfect pic, if you ask me. I can understand how he would be fascinated with the fall leaves as they travel their journey. I would have to stop and watch them for awhile.

It's a great picture of Stephen; he seems such a natural part of the scenery, as if he is communing with teh floating leaves.

I listened to one of the artists in your play list, Warren Barfield. I think the song was "Love is not a fight." What a beautiful voice he has. I must seek out more of his music.

That is a great shot and I'm glad your husband was able to capture that moment. I love to watch the leaves myself. Now you have evidence that he behaves for your husband so that should mean more trips to the park so you can have a break..right. Thanks for stopping by and introducing yourself. My journal is private, but you can write if you would like access. I need your email address if you do. I have tried to start adding things to the cooking journal. I have stuff to share just never had the time. I'm working on that now.
Take care, Chrissie
