Is it wrong that I feel slightly jealous when I drop Duc off at daycare and he lays his head on her shoulder until I walk out the door?  Well, I do.  He’s such a flirt and he loves to flash his dimples and eyelashes at every cute blond or cute Asian chic he sees.  I am neither, in case you didn’t know.  He makes his preferences pretty known—a brunette who wants to hold him, he will ignore but a blonde that hates kids?  Yeah, that’s the one he wants.  And somehow, he makes even the toughest woman crack a smile.  He’s just that good.FTIA Reunion and Kris 065_edited-2 copy

Thank you for all your wonderful comments about my photos.  Really, I appreciate hearing the feedback and knowing when I am doing well.  I’ve reached the point where I have actually outgrown my camera.  It’s kind of bittersweet, really.  It’s sweet because I have finally reached my limits and I recognize that there are some pictures that I just can’t take due to my limited shutter speed and ISO.  Understanding why you need to upgrade is very different than just wanting to upgrade…or so I have been told.  But it is sad because I have learned so much from my camera and now I need to spend a little more money in order to grow.  Fortunately, I should be able to trade it in and since my camera is only a few months old (and there isn’t a mark on it.  I tell Duc that I love him, but I love my other baby also so he isn’t allowed to touch it) I should get a really good trade out of it.  FTIA Reunion and Kris 080_edited-1 copy

This is Duc’s new “up” gesture.  I think it makes him look like one of the zombies from MJ’s Thriller video.  Either way, it’s usually pretty effective since he usually is chasing after me when I see it.

I hear you on growing out of your camera. I'm upgrading in the next month or so...but selfishly keeping my old one as back-up.

The the zombie pic! So cute!

What are you switching from/to? Inquiring minds need to know! :)

I grew out of my plain ole XT and still prefer it over my 50D. It's like an old friend. I can't give that camera up. It was my first digital SLR and I still get it out every now an then. I know it and it knows me and it still takes the best damn pics.
