Saturday's Sensational Six

Ok, I've got that out of my system. Time for photos.

A great photo of Sam
Here's the last of the 'new' photos we found on Samuel's phone.
Very similar to another photo. He must have liked this 'theme'.

A great photo of Oliver
For my photo scavenger hunt: "The eyes of someone you love." Taken on my iPhone, hence the 'graininess'.

An old photo
Sam must have been about 10 when this one was taken. Early on in the whole 'Anthony breeding parrots' thing. He has hundreds now!

An Interesting Photo

My alternate for the EB challenge. Taken on Thursday morning when I went down to the lake. It was -3 degrees.

My weekly entry into the EB photo of the week challenge:

This week's challenge was 'Perspective (lie down on the ground and take the photo).
So I lay down on the freezing ground next to the lake. I do like it, though there wasn't quite enough fog for my liking. The swan hissing while I lay there at me was a little unnerving, too.

Morguefile Lesson Photos
Lesson 2 - Aperture and Shutter speed. Assignment 1.
This is a storyboard showing the full range of aperture values (f-stops) on my camera (at a shutter speed of 1/80). If I had a more advanced camera, there would be a whole lot of dark ones as well. That's it. I'm buying a new camera for my birthday! (Shame it's another 7 months away!)


  1. Some great shots there!

    I especially love the lake one, just beautiful!

    Can you send me a quick email to so I can ask you a couple quick questions about your fav books.

    Thanks Mel!

  2. You are very talented Mel!
