Time to do a little catching up. We finally got some sunlight this weekend. i really don’t mind all the clouds and rain here in the Puget Sound but I do thoroughly enjoy the summers, beautiful blue skies, not too warm. I love it. Well here it is the middle of June and it was still feeling like March or April. I keep telling myself that it’s only gonna last a few days and the rains will return but I hope I’m wrong. Anyway, I think it was really getting me down. I was bored to death with being on the Internet, completely uninspired with photography, and holding up in my room reading Edgar Allen Poe. Which was fun but I so hope the sun is here to stay (for the summer anyway.)
Friday Grayson’s preschool class had a "Family & Community Connection" activity. A fancy name for finding businesses that want to offer a free day for a bunch of 3-5 year olds so that maybe their parents will bring them back and spend lots of money. We went to The Bouncy Place in Kent. A warehouse in one of the industrial sections of town that has been turned into an inflatable fun house. The kids had a blast!!! I took lots of pictures but the lighting was terrible so everything was just a blur. This one was a little blurry but I loved it!!
After dinner the sunlight still had me feeling antsy. I told Aaron I was going to go take pictures and then run to the store. He said, "Good, get the heck out of here!!" :D I think I irritate him when I start getting bored and antsy.
I stopped at the Pioneer Cemetery down the road from us. It is such a neat looking place to me. This little bitty cemetery tucked in this little triangle lot on the corner of a very busy intersection. I had so been wanting to shoot some pictures in there. The sun was on it’s way down so the lighting was awesome. I’m still learning so I’m sure I didn’t use it to the best of it’s potential but I had fun. See some more shots here.
After shooting for a while there I realized I was on the verge of doing the peepee dance. After running to Fred Meyer’s and taking care of that I went back out cuz I just wasn’t ready to be indoors. I walked down the road and started pointing my camera at the sun. I was very pleased with what came out. Again, to see more go here. :)
