A piece of history

>> Friday, January 28, 2011

On Monday after we left the house I took the pictures of the girls at we climbed in the car and they all immediately fell asleep. As I was driving home I decided to make a detour and try out a location that a photographer friend has used before. They all got 30 minute naps and when we got to the park I asked them if they would let me take just a few more pictures. They said no. Not only did they say no but Violet burst into tears over it too. It's all good. We walked to Kerr Mill which was right next to the park and I tried to explain to the girls how the old water wheel used to make power for things. I must admit that I have problems wrapping my mind around stuff like that too but I tried. How I wish my engineer husband would have been there to assist with my lame explanation. It sure was a relaxing scene though. Since they didn't want their picture taken I decided to shoot a few of the wheel. This was actually the picture I first used Pioneer Woman's "Vintage" action on and I liked it. That then made me use a tweaked version again yesterday. I go though really liking something and playing with it a ton and then you might never see me use it again.

Tim is in charge of explaining all science and math stuff. I get writing, grammar, reading and all of that. Doesn't much help when the math man isn't around though, does it?

Today I made a 'must read' folder in my Google Reader. Life. Changing. Thanks for that tip!

Beautiful photo! Wow, and so close to you...that is great. LOL at your little girls...Jack says that to me all the time. I say "a couple more pictures" and I always get "No, Mama!"!
