Derek sneaking up on me

We had a family birthday party a week ago and 2-year-old Derek told me not to take his picture -- but a little while later he came sneaking up to me -- pretending not to notice me -- but I'm sure he changed his mind about having his picture taken.

Adorable kid!

New banner

I haven't taken any special photographs lately, but put together a new banner with a bit of Autumn leaves...

These fawns wander through my yard and eat everything down to the ground!  but they sure are cute.
I haven't done much blogging this year, and probably won't even try to do another group blog next year -- but I'll set up something a little less structured for next year.  Probably more words and fewer photographs.  Who knows what tomorrow will bring...

Content aware fill in Photoshop

Content aware fill really amazes me!  I wanted to get rid of the hangar in front of this impatiens.  Taken with my favorite 28-135 mm lens on the Canon XSi.

And tulips really do grow on trees!

Another shot with the 60 mm lens on the Canon Xsi.

It was windy today so I was holding the branch with one hand and shooting the picture with the other hand.

Afternoon sun is so striking!

60 mm lens

Here's a clematis -- straight out of camera -- using the 60 mm lens on the Xsi.
I've been playing with point and shoot and forgetting how much I love the DSLR.
