Theme Thursdays: Sun Flare and {P,H,F,R}

Joining the inspired family at Like Mother, Like Daughter for {Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} and also trying something new. The indomitable Cari at Clan Donaldson has started a new "Theme Thursdays" to encourage hacks like me to take better pictures. This weeks theme being sun flares/haze. I love to see how very truly far, far, far I have to go...

{Pretty} And Sun Flare

good morning, sunshine

Okay, I think I took the sun flare thing a little too far on this one, but give me a break, I'm learning, and I still think it's pretty. It's little guy's birthday TODAY! So, like maybe we can call this symbolism and say he is on the threshold of leaving his babyhood behind? No, still just an overexposed weird pic of a baby in a diaper leaving the house on his own? Man, I'm just trying!

Best birthday present: remote control spider. Thanks Gmom and Gdad! Isaac, in his amazing ability to grasp the obvious thinks it is a real pet, and hasn't quite, quite figured out the magic that the remote is actually CONTROLLING it, instead using hand and voice commands to direct, which honestly makes sharing all that easier. On a side note, don't ask what Momo is wearing.

Video card from my nieces and their embarrassing talented dad! Now if Isaac isn't the luckiest two year old who ever had a birthday, they should call the whole "having a birthday" thing off. He is truly loved. 

So blessed, so obscenely blessed we are.

  3. I LOVE the sun flare photo. I usually think of sun flare as up in the sky, but bouncing off the floor? Genius. And the fact that your little boy is looking down at it, like he's found a little puddle of sun- so, so cute.

    Thanks for linking up. Hope to see you next week.

  4. I think the picture is lovely. Catching a picture of a moving baby is what I am working on right now, ha. But thanks for showing us your attempts and your cute boy in his diaper.

  9. I love it! Think I'm going to be learning quite a bit with all these talented people around. I took a look at that second picture and thought the spider was real!! I was thinking, where the heck does she live if they have tarantulas just crawling around! Haha, whoops, just a remote control.

  12. So now I have a reason to spend waaaay too much time on the computer...reading your quirky-perfect book reviews. Tom Jones!! I LOVE that book! Now for Into to the Devout Life for some counteraction... The Isaac in the Sun Beam picture is beautiful and meaningful on a host of levels. Even the chair, and the beautiful landscaping off the deck. Mike is insane, and insanely talented. Just watching his fingers move makes me ache to be sitting around playing again, with him and Annie singing Buckets of Rain. (Is it okay that I'm giving all these personal references??) I have so much more to read...why am I commenting yet??!! (When did 1 punctuation mark become not-enough??)
