Favorite Words: Day 23

There are a lot of things I never want to forget--just silly, everyday things that Levi loves.  
 Ball:  We play this game called "throwing balls down the stairs" where we throw balls down the stairs ;) Ben and I have figured out one of the secrets--collect as many balls as we can find to cut down the amount of times we have to go up and down the stairs.  This is how I carry my stash...in my "pouch."

Car:  Everything with wheels is a "car" right now---and he loves cars.  His trains are "cars" and the words "car" and "color" are pretty indistinguishable right now.  That can be confusing.

Perspective: Day 22

After he gave me this cute little grin, I have pictures of him screaming his head off...why?

This and That: Day21

All day, I had my heart set on heading downtown Fort Wayne and taking some beautiful night photos of the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Bridge to celebrate Dr. King today.  If you have never seen the bridge at night, you are missing out.  BUT then I went outside....ouch it is cold and windy!!!  Had I gone tonight, I would have rushed and not been happy---so another night.  I also burned through a cheap roll of BW film on my newest film camera because it has some funky spots when you look in the viewfinder.  Luckily they are not showing up on photos, although I may send it back anyways :(  I bought it in "Excellent Plus" condition so it should not have funny spots in it!  So those shots are what you get today :)

My Artsy, Fartsy Husband

I don't know if you know, but my handsome husband is a fabulous artist.  Really, his artistic awesomeness is what inspired me to pursue photography.  He just completed this cool personal project called the Sketchbook Project.  You order this teeny sketchbook, then fill it with whatever you feel.  Then you send the book back, it is archived, and becomes a part of a rotating exhibit that travels all around the nation then becomes a permanent exhibit at the Brooklyn Art Library. You should check it out if it comes near you

He decided to complete a project he started earlier this year: Hybrid Animals.  He took suggestions from Facebook friends and then blended the two animals together.  How awesome is he?  Here are some of my favorites.

I am going to knock something off the 101 in 1001 list for him after accomplishing this:
100.         Sketch once a week for 5 months (Ben).

New Bag: Day 18

Got my new camera bag in the mail today to fit all my camera junk :)  Isn't she lovely? 

Also, even though I did not post yesterday, I still shot some, just all on film :)  I am having to learn a new editing program because my version of Photoshop does not support my new camera---and I cannot afford a new Photoshop ($700!!).  It is slowing me down and frustrating because I am trying to learn new cameras too..but if that is my big complaint in life, I am doing quite well :)  

On another note, my son made his first photograph today.  A beautiful portrait of his mother ;)

Feeling Icky: Day 16

How I have been feeling lately...

PS Just because I am sick and moody.  No need to worry, Dad ;) (And I wanted to play with deep shadows and light.)

My Heart

This kids melts me every day.  One of my favorite parts of every day is just before I climb into bed.  I bring Daisy upstairs, put on the PJs, brush my teeth, and then sneak into Levi's room for just one last glimpse.  I try to take as much in as possible to hold it with me as I drift to sleep.  He is amazing.

PS This photo would not have been possible with my old camera so woot!
