I got to meet my newest nephew and photograph him in all of his 8 day old glory.  I was also lucky enough to capture his gorgeous parents and brothers.  They are a photogenic bunch.  It was also nice to spend time with them all.

Day 199

July 18, 2011

We went over to the local lake and while Aaron and Blake went fishing I took pictures of grasshoppers.  There were thousands of them!!

There were at least 10 on the plant below

Day 197

July 16, 2011

Blake has been begging to go fishing.  It’s the first thing he asks as soon as he wakes up in the morning.  We decided to drive up to Gross Reservoir.

I made Aaron stop to take pictures at the train tracks

I played a little bit with focal length.  These were taken at roughly the same spots using the same settings (I think I had to adjust the shutter speed down 1/3 EV on one picture.)



Second set up facing the other way on the tracks
