Projects 52 - March

I managed to submit a photo for each week this month.  However, for some, the photo didn't match the theme!  For others, I couldn't decide on a photo and had two or three that fit.  I honestly can't remember if I just submitted one or if I submitted all of them!  The themes really are challenging some weeks - especially for the child related group.  My child is very limited still and can't do a lot.  Also, on weekdays, I'm limited to about 30-60 minutes of free time with him (when he's not eating, sleeping, or bathing) and that time usually coincides with darkness.  I haven't used my flash in ages.  It's challenging, but I think I'm managing okay! Honestly, most of my submissions are taken on Saturday or Sunday mornings when we get some pretty good light in the house.  Light I never knew existed until I was forced to wake early and hang out and play on the floor!

LSL Submissions 

10/52 Enjoying a special treat
Ben can't really eat treats yet.  But, here he is enjoying a 'raspberry' from daddy.

11/52 Close-up
I feel like all of my photos are close ups these days.  That will change once Ben becomes more mobile and I'm chasing after him!

12/52 Take a photo of your child playing outside in the yard
Yeah right!  Not with this cold/snow/muddy backyard.  This theme made me very jealous of all the others who submitted photos of their kids playing outside with no coats on.  Since it wasn't possible for me to get Ben outside to play, I just submitted this random shot of him playing 'outside' his play mat/blanket!

13/52 Clothes
I just thought this outfit was funny/fitting for the theme.

13/52 Clothing
Monkey foot!

M4H Submissions

10/52 Soft
This rug feels very soft!

10/52 Soft
A soft place to lay your head.

10/52 Soft
I added this one after the fact I think.  When I edited it I realized it had a very soft look to it.

11/52 Patterns
I went the animal pattern route with this one.  This is one of Ben's toys.

12/52 Blue
A blue vase - with the morning sun shining in.  Funny background story for this one.  Ben had gone down for his morning nap already so I quickly took the chance to take some pictures not of him.  When Mike woke up, I was in the dining room, standing on a chair wearing a robe and gnome pajama pants taking pictures.  He didn't say a word.  That's just life with me!

13/52 Vast
The world!

Projects 52 - February

I managed to take a picture each week for two of my Project 52 groups.  I have officially opted out of the third group.  A few of the prompts were a bit challenging...I can't wait for the weather to warm up so I'm not stuck taking pictures in the same four rooms in my sunlight deprived house!

Without further ado, here are my submissions:

LSL Project 52

6/52 Everyday Activity
Tummy Time!
This would have been a good one for the next prompt too....

7/52 Feet
Do you know how hard it is to photograph a four month old's feet?
They don't stay still for long.

8/52 Messy Activity
Green beans
Check it out here:

9/52 Child's Choice
Ben can't talk so I had to take a picture of what I think he might want me to take a picture of.
He loves his jumperoo so I think he's say, "Take a picture of me jumping like a mad man."

This was my second choice for Child's Choice
This is one of his toys that always makes him smile and giggle.
I chose the first one only because I felt like Ben should actually be the subject.

M4H Project 52

6/52 Paradise
My paradise is really a tropical beach, but, we're far from that!

7/52 Focus

8/52 Bright
I struggled with this one!  I tried to get the candle flame,

9/52 Color Blind
I think this would have worked for the previous theme as well.
