I am someone who enjoys taking photos, my subjects are random, from bugs to babies. Photography is therapy for me, I have no real knowledge of the art, I am learning a bit here and there. I use an inexpensive camera.I simply love taking shots of interesting or beautiful things I see. I love the adventure of attempting to get the perfect shot. Please enjoy these photos and share them with your friends. For me the ultimate success is knowing someone may be amazed or made to smile.

Kearstyn at Play on the Trampoline
































I have not been able to get out lately so I have been bothering my young grandchildren with the camera. Today is all Kearstyn playing on the trampoline. She didn't know I was there until I had been shooting for about 10 minutes, I like the shots tell me what you think....By the way the pink in the framing was done at the request of the model.

    1. Thank you Luchi, she is fun, I use Pinik at the moment but it is closing so I am shopping around trying to find oone that is as easy and effective. I spend anywhere from 20 min to an hour on each photo when I do this much on them.

    1. Oh that hair, she was having fun because when on the trampoline she always gets fulof static so her hair is everywhere. She loves her hair too. She takes care of it too, fixes it for school and all. I braid it for her every night after her shower and that is all I do she does the rest.

    1. Thank you Corinne, It is a little scary at times. Her personality is one of shy confidence if that makes sense. I have faith in her though she will be a great person as she faces the world.
