Outdoors

A portrait of our children, once a week, every week in 2015

This week I decided joining instagram was a must.  However my phone camera is a sad, sad item, think pixel horror, however a little research informed me that I could join via my computer, just a couple more steps were involved.  I was happier with that as I’d prefer to use my regular camera rather than a phone camera, happily I downloaded bluestacks, but ran into a problem when it appeared my ip address was considered a proxy.  Confused? so was I;) ‘Long and short’ was I reluctantly gave up my instagram idea but… my darling husband meanwhile went and purchased me a new phone with a much better camera, what a sweetheart!!  So stay tuned for an instagram link when I’m up and rolling.
This week I’ve been working on mastering metering and histograms, don’t I sound knowledgeable;) I suspect I’m only understanding a fraction of what I’m meant to, though my eye is slowly seeing the differences.
 
 I have lots of willing ‘subjects’ and I fell in love with this photo of Jem
Bella’s cuteness generally overshadows any imperfections in my photography, just love her little boots, she’s the tenth child to wear them:)

 

Autumn here and the weather’s still lovely, action shots are tricky
Bass just loves splashing about at the local Pool in town, though the background is too dark I can’t believe I captured water droplets!:)
Our Princess, beautiful as always, I obviously have more to learn regards light.

    We have those same little boots. Ours have only made it through 6 kids though, I'm going to have to buy/find a new pair for our little fellow. What would toddlerhood be without a pair of little boots!

      Sharyn, I wonder if they sell them so small anymore?

      Actually I remember that our little boots were originally worn by my brother! So I may have to keep an eye on the second hand for more.

    Love the pictures! What type of tree is Jem sitting in? Those leaves look very similiar to an indoor plant that my dad has and I'm wondering if it's really a tree that grows in Australia. Of course, I will have to look up the name of the indoor plant as I can't remember.

      Hi Cassie
      It's a gum tree, an Australian native

      Hi Cassie,
      The plant in the foreground is a Rubber plant I think. It is a common indoor plant. It is native to India and surrounding countries.

      Cassie,
      Yes Jem is sitting in a gum tree but as Sharyn explains the plant in front is a rubber tree. Actually in this area they are considered a noxious weed and should only be indoors. Actually now you have picked it up we shall be removing it:)

      Oh, that makes sense and I can see that the tree and plant are separate. Yep, the rubber plant is what is sitting in my dad's office. I'm loving the gum tree though. The bark looks interesting.
