Day 7

Lazy Lazy Lazy day today! I went and dropped the kids off at day-care today and visited the local bookshop to grab the next instalment of Merry Gentry series books by Laurell K Hamilton - she has me hooked! anyhoo so the most I did anywhere at my house was sit in the one comfy chair with the air cooler feeling really girly in my new dress that I have worn for the first time and immersed myself in to a world of faerie's, goblins, magic and of course romance. I only emerged because my tummy was letting me know that food WAS important!!

So I hooked up the camera to the tripod, linked up my new special button (aka remote trigger thingy) and took a couple of self portraits...

of course I couldn't have everything my way my light was icky, the flash either was too bright or non-existent... but hey got the photos!

THEN.... my darling husband says "oh the sun through the trees looks great!"

ok... of course I grab the camera and yep now I COULDN'T turn the flash off, (I am SO going to have to play a lot more) to get the type of sunflare photos I wanted. :(

Ok it all came good when I took a few steps to the back fence and saw these cool silhouettes..
