Rained lightly today, making the air fresh afterwards, so I went outside to get some shots. Princess and Patience both came out from their hiding spots, a little damp but okay. I saw Solo hanging around early today on the fence. I’m feeling slightly miserable today as I’m having allergies/stuffed nose problem.
As I’ve gone on short photo shoots with Kayla, I’ve learned my new favorite part about photography is the processing afterwards. I’m looking forward to revealing several edited pictures I got of Kayla on my main blog shortly! I enjoyed doing it with the few shots I got today. I also love striving for the sharp, close up shots. (If you couldn’t tell by every single picture in this post!)
Here are some pictures from this week. Forgive my forgetfulness on this as we’ve been busy getting ready for tomorrow. I’m super excited to take pictures on our trip though! 😀
Okay, I didn’t take this shot, but I just had to share it because I bought that Arc Reactor at Target! Is that the coolest thing ever? It’s heavy on Nathan’s shirt though, but it’s still super neat. Kayla put it on and she exclaimed, “I feel so POWERFUL!” and than when Nathan put it on he exclaimed, “I feel so COOL!” HAHA
Princess has already caught one rabbit (it was dead under our trailer) but this morning I looked out the window and there she was in the middle of the yard with another baby rabbit trying to get it to play with her. She was jumping around it, bumping it with her paw and trying to chase it. When I ran out she and the baby went all over the yard and then up against the wall. I grabbed Princess and put her in her cage and than I grabbed the camera. I got this shot of the rabbit before Patience took her turn with it. I’m hoping to God that it got away and is somewhere safe.
And than, I’m putting the tarp pack over our grill and there’s a blinkin’ SCORPION right there! I nearly grabbed it!
First thing I did was jump backwards and shout ‘holy crap’ considering I had nearly touched it. Than I ran inside for the spray. It moved around and started walking across the top of the grill. Than I ran back inside for the camera. I put the setting on ‘close up’ and I actually got some nice shots. But geez, that was a close call.
I’m actually really proud of this shot! It looks fantas-great!
I’m off now to back my suitcase and laptop bag. I’ll get some pictures to show y’all later!
21st was busy—my Uncle Dan came in from California and we had dinner with him and Grandpa and Grandma. Than after dinner he taught us how to play Scrabble and that was fun. He’s a REALLY funny guy, he’s easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. He had us laughing all night—he almost like a teenager, come to think of it, but in a grown up way! LOL Anyway, I didn’t get a shot of Princess, in fact it was very late when I was sitting at my desk and thought, “Oh my gosh, I have to take a picture.” So, I picked up the camera, aimed and shot the my desk and the wall behind it. 🙂 With my two favorite pictures pinned up there. XD
Today I got a shot of our other cat Patience as I was filling up the food container. She walked by and looked at me like, “Do you duty well, slave.” LOL. Oh, and tonight, Dad, Mom, Grandma and Grandpa all went to the theater with me to see War Horse. It was VERY GOOD. I highly recommend it. Besides all the horses, Tom Hiddelston was the best part, even if he only had a smaller part. XD
Today, Nathan was playing with his remote control car; nearly ran Patience down with it and Princes had to watch that she wasn’t run over either. 🙂
She was a interested, but for her own health, had to watch out!
Patience: staring at the menace car. Princess, getting ready to give Patience a jab in the head with her paw! XD
I was going to get this cute shot of her sitting in the kitty food bucket on top of all the colorful pieces of cat food… but no.
She was absolutely horrified to be even in the bucket and this is my only reasonable okay shot I got before she scrambled out.
After the failed photo shoot, I got Princess and Patience some fresh food. You can see in this picture that Princess’s ears are turned backwards, meaning she was nervous about being near Patience. She was right to be. Moments after I took this shot, Patience thumped Princess on the head several times in her way of saying, “I eat first, kiddo. Move over.”
I think Patience is jealous! Lol!
