Exploring in the Woods

I read a photography tip about shooting with your camera set to b/w to help you better see contrast and texture without the distraction of color. I thought I’d give a try to Trey and I took a stroll in the woods together. I ended up liking the b/w better than the color so I just left them that way.

Bonus: video of an impressive creek crossing… in color!

Cherry Blossom Festival 2014

We headed up to Macon this weekend for a visit to “the pinkest party” on earth – the annual Cherry Blossom Festival! I grabbed Trey’s “bestest buddy” and we spent the afternoon riding fair rides and running around Central City Park.

The boys wore their ninja masks the whole time and fought off imaginary bad guys. The only slowed down on the bumper cars – something they had a hard time figure out how to drive. We’ll wait a few years before handing any keys over to those boys.

Learning Work Ethic

Trey has been wanting to buy a certain Lego Star Wars set but his allowance money from doing household chores hasn’t quite been enough. We suggested he as the neighbors if he could do some yard work for cash. Thanks to a recent storm, two of our neighbors had tons of pine cones littering their yard. They each paid him $3 to pick them all one. It was no easy task either – one yard took him over 30 minutes to clear!

Fun in a Field
