Grandchildren Week!!!!!

My granddaughter and her Mommy were here for a week from Kansas.   Our house has not had this much energy and chatter......ever!    She is a very happy 19 month old and she endured lots of running and showing off and visiting.    My favorite thing was when she would look at me and if I wasn't looking she would get my attention, give me a kiss and then put her arms right around my neck real tight.    I could take that ALL day long.   I probably have 300 pictures, if I have one.    (well, close anyway).   I could post here and it would take you hours to get through.

For now, our photography assignment this week is "Dreamscape".    Melding 2 pictures together to get a dreamy effect - one image sharp and one image blurred.    Right now, I'm choosing between 3 of them - all of my granddaughter of course.

 This is the original photo - taken on my iPhone actually.    Ricky Tims says the best camera is the one you have with you - and that was it that day.    She picked the dandelion for her mother!

 This is dreamy #1, two color photos blended together - one sharp, one blury!

 This one I did something different and made one photo black and white and then blurred the color photo and melded together.   I like the "sort of sepia" look to this -yet a hint of color!

This one was taken when she was on our bed - on my quilt.   Two color photos, one sharp, one blurry!    I picture that this is how her dreamland looks as she is nodding off!

And, one just for fun!    She loved to pretend she was singing and she knew we laughed so she did it everytime the music was on.   Here she was holding my phone which was playing "Sofia" (her favorite) and she laid it on the piano keys, banging away and sitting there with her mouth wide open!!!!


  1. She makes for a great subject if I do say so

  2. I love reading about your adventures with your little Gerber baby! (Although Gerber baby food may never have touched her ruby lips!)
