Up a tree

This one is from way back in the beginning of the summer, which feels like years ago, doesn’t it? No time to post much today, but here’s my Best Shot Monday!


I love this one of Will and his pal Ian. Who has a clean face. Unlike his friend Will.


More of the dirty face.

And, what’s that clever frame technique I’m using in Photoshop, you ask? Couldn’t be easier:

1. Find appropriate tree at playground

2. Wait until children go inside and stick head out through hole (.2 seconds after they find the tree)

3. Snap photo

4. Voila!



Happy Labor Day, everyone!

    Natural frames always beat digital ones, if you ask me.

    Hehe. Ian is posing like any good boy should. And then there’s William. Who looked like he swam in a puddle to get ready for the shot. He’s so adorable though!

    The first is my fave, although I don’t know…lovin’ that dirty face close up. That tree screams for photo shoots!! Beautiful work.

    Good looking men, there! My kids always have the dirty faces in public. Three years ago I would’ve told you no way would I let my kids have dirty faces in public, and now I’ve convinced myself it’s just cute.

    The bar keeps lowering and lowering!
