Dance all night

Yesterday we had a big day. Evidently at the first hint of improvement I am out there wearing myself out again. What am I thinking?



Anyway, we had fun. First there was a visit to Oma and Opa’s house and look what we found!047_edited-1It’s been years since I lived as a country girl so some of my farm animal knowledge has been replaced by how to survive among urban sprawl. Anyway, there are horses, mules and donkeys. Although to be honest I had trouble discerning which was horse and which was mule. Despite my confusion I loved this shot.

045_edited-1 I shot the day entirely in manual—quite a leap of faith for me, but I really enjoyed it! I was really able to play with lights and darks in a way that I am not able to do with some of the other more automatic camera settings.064_edited-1Yes, that is my itsy bitsy niece next to the mule. Did I mention I was a country girl? Duc has no fear of horses/mules and neither do any of the other littles in the family. 086_edited-1100_edited-1 Not sure what this is? Oma couldn’t figure out if it was a weed or a flower. Kind of pretty either way.102 Straight out of camera image. I love the light (and lack of it) in this image.154_edited-1 Yeah, I know it looks like my son is getting french kissed by Opa’s dog, but let me assure you he started it.

Great pics, erica! I would love to be brave like you and shoot manually...but I will continue to shoot...and drive in automatic mode! Duc is getting so big! And cuter by the day!
