I had no inspiration today. Luckily, Atticus did not seem to mind me sticking my camera in her face while she tried to rest. Of course, she knows better than to complain when she is taking up most of MY bed. __________ Lens: EF28-135mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM Exposure: 1/60 at ƒ/5.6 Focal Length: 95 mm ISO 400 Flash: Yes

I was experimenting taking pictures of the moon. I usually shoot in aperture priority, but for this experiment I played around with my shutter speed. I took 35 identical shots of the moon, making minor changes with each. This one had the most detail without being too dark.

It rained this morning, which meant a change of plans. I showed my oldest how to make paper boats out of construction paper. Then we ventured out into the rain and set a few of our little boats afloat in the puddle at the end of the driveway. She loved it.

When I asked my daughter what I should take pictures of today, she asked me if we could go take pictures in the dark. I decided it would be fun to see how my flash could light her up. When we finished, she ran around the backyard pretending monsters were chasing her.

The lighting was wrong. My camera settings were wrong. The lens was wrong. But when she looked at me through the lace curtains, all I could think was that I must capture this moment. I love this picture.

The temperature made it all the way into the 50s today, so I got out of the house and went on an impromptu photo safari. I still don't know all of my Florida birds, but I believe this is either a Great White Heron or a Great Egret.
