Pool Party!

We spent Sunday with some great friends who were generous enough to invite us up to house in Mill Bay for an afternoon poolside. What kid doesn't love an outdoor pool? They spent hours in the water and the men spent what I'm sure seemed like hours launching them into the air and seeing who could make the biggest splash. It was hilarious. And it gave me a chance to test my camera's performance at some seriously high shutter speeds. Thanks M and R for a perfect afternoon!

Batman and the Puppy at the fair

The annual spring fair was held at the school a few Fridays ago. So much fun...reminded me of being a kid in school. The bouncy castle, cake walk, balloon toss...the one chance you get all year to throw stuff at your teacher.. lol.

The kids had a blast. The highlight of the night was the pony ride. I've been nagged constantly about riding lessons ever since. But it was worth it to see her face when she stepped up on that horse for the very first time. What a moment. Well worth the 45 minutes we spent waiting in line.

Batman and the puppy were beat by the end of the night but it sure was an awesome time.

Macro love

I've been falling in love with macro photography lately...following many macro photographers on flickr and in the blogosphere. I am desperate to get my hands on a proper macro lens for my Nikon D80 but in the meantime I've been playing around with my current favourite lens (although that's constantly changing... my tastes are fickle) the Nikon 50mm f1.8. This lens is incredible in so many ways. It's tack sharp, offers up amazing depth of field and is super fast in low light. So I gathered up my stuff and headed to a local park recently to try my hand at some macro photography which basically just means I tried to get really really close to some pretty flowers.. and here's the results of that outing. Happy spring!
