Learning Photography the Hard way with my Nikon p510


I still haven't read the manual for my Nikon.  I'm trying to make a point of pulling the camera out more often, and figuring things out.  I'm working on close-ups and macros, because my default is the typical Sears Portrait distance.  I really need to use my tripod more often too.  But even without it, I think I'm improving.  I hope.

I'm lucky to still have several Valentine bouquets to practice  my photography on.

I love this chair!  I'll be posting more about it this week, or if you can't wait, hop over to Instagram for details!

My husband actually took this photo, but it shows what the kids did for a big chunk of the weekend.  The first game they played included a lot of fighting, whining, and frustration, but after some reminders (aka, lectures, threats, and warnings), J patiently and calmly taught her little brother how to play checkers and Uno, and they did several puzzles together.  And cleaned up.  This is what I've always dreamed of for my kids, even though I grew up fighting tooth and nail with my three siblings.  I INSIST that my two be the best of friends.  I don't care how many other BFFs they may get.

I cannot get enough of this boy's eyelashes!  It's hard to catch him still enough to get a decent close-up of him, but he was busy painting a wooden race car on Saturday.
