I Has a Ball!!

Just back from Washington DC, where we went to the National Zoo for the first time since I was about my son’s age. And there were panda bears, which are just as cute as you might expect! See for yourself – this is Bao Bao, who just turned one.

Closeup 2012

When I first got Beeb, I was working at a portrait studio, so the obvious thing to do was to bring her in for pictures. She was adorable, and you would so have done it too. I’ll have to track down my digital copy, but this reminded me of that shot.

Sasha’s Tongue

I don’t know about this cat sometimes. She sat like this for a good five minutes or so, letting me get a couple of good shots. Taken with our most recent addition, a Canon PowerShot S95. And really, I didn’t even do much to the picture before I got this!

The Cape Cod Gull

This past weekend, my husband and I went to Provincetown for our anniversary. I did not pack my backup battery, so didn’t get a whole lot in the way of photography, but I did manage to capture some of those iconic Cape Cod pictures. First, I present The Cape Cod Gull.

Closeup Puffy

Puffy, the other cat who was laying with Sasha this past weekend. He was also patient enough to let me take his closeup.

Patient Sasha

Seriously, it’s been a month since I updated? I guess time flies when you’re swamped with work! Anywho, the other day I snuck up on two of the cats while they were napping, and managed to get some good shots. This is Sasha, and I’m not sure I’ve seen her this still for so long…

Honey

What to do when you have a nicely-composed picture, but terrible light? Turn it into an art piece, of course!

Dancing Dolphin

Another winning park in Orlando is Sea World! I haven’t been there in ages, but with the first-thing-in-the-morning roller coaster, feeding rays AND dolphins, and seeing the animal shows for the first time through Ethan’s eyes, it was an awesome day. I should have a couple more good pictures, but I swear, this one is AS. SHOT.

Gorilla Man

From Disney’s Animal Kingdom, just outside the safari ride. I only took 365 pictures yesterday, and happily a lot of them turned out well. Though I’ll admit I did “cheat” and put the camera on full auto while I was on the safari.

Who Are You?

I’m on vacation this week, meaning that, of course, I overscheduled myself last week. I’ll be better this week!

I am staying in Orlando with my extended family, and out our resort, we took a walk with Ethan and my nephew. We found a pair of ducks with a 9 ducklings, but the best picture I got was of this guy. And I have no clue what kind of bird it is, since I’m not native to Florida or anything. Thoughts?
