Foto Friday - Leaves
(a quick reminder to please vote for me I really need the votes to win! THANKS!!!)
I had so much FUN doing these pictures. THANK YOU REBECCA!!! If you have not already read the story behind these photos, I encourage you to do that. It really is worth the time, at least I think it is. :D
(edited to add: OK... after seeing every one else's photos, and they are of just leaves, I feel really bad. I think I messed up on the assignment. But how could I NOT take these shots of my kids?!?! I am sorry Rebecca and other fellow FF followers. Rebecca - feel free to remove my link if you do not think I completed the challenge as stated. I will not be offended at all! :D )
So we headed to the last place I had been where I saw lots of leaves and there was a most beautiful bridge there. I told the kids about throwing in a leaves and watching them race under the bridge (there was a beautiful running river flowing under the bridge), and of course they went NUTS throwing LEAVES over the bridge. Not just one or two for a race ... but literally...
Here is one of JJ on the bridge. I love the shot, but hate the exposure! No matter how much I played with it, I could NOT get his face brighter!
Here is another one of JJ on the bridge. I love this one too!!!
I was TRYING to get a sun flare on this one, but but it did not work. Any thoughts on how to do something like this in the future??
Here is JJ on the stairs playing with the leaves while I was trying to set up a shoot (see a couple shots below), and all he cared about was playing in the leaves. SO CUTE!!!
Here is the shot I was setting up. AA was AWESOME in helping with this shot. I had said what I wanted, but she interpreted it differently, telling each of her siblings where to sit. I loved it so much that I was not about to say a word about what my vision was.
