A New Year, A New Look and Another Self Portrait

I am on holiday so with family helping to look after my kids I have more time to post..you may have noticed?! Daily. Twice daily. I love this image.

It’s a shameless selfie. An interesting one in my opinion. If you look closely you can actually see a scene from my husband’s life. My father and son are also present. You see what he sees.

I find it difficult to take a straight self portrait. I have however enjoyed discovering myself hiding in all sorts of places.

I looked deep into my husband’s eyes and found not only myself, but our life.

A Few From The Pool

The summer break for my family is spent by the pool. It can get to the mid forties with dry, harsh sun. We can either be found in the pool or directly under an air conditioning vent!

I decided to use my macro lens to take a few shots. Unfortunately it is a prime lens and so focusing proved a challenge. Changing the manual settings for each shot when the circumstances vary so much is hard (at least to me). How do you cope with the challenge of altering the settings so often, so quickly?

I love the shape in the last shot. Such a shame we chose to swim in harsh shadow causing light!
