Kayla's Meet

Kayla is in track this year. Her meet started at 4:00, but she didn't run until 6:20! She only had one event-- the 800. I encouraged her to talk to her coach about running more events. She is much faster than some of the other girls. Especially the ones running the 1600 meter (roughly one mile). The girls from her team came in dead last. There are only four meets, and the first one was postponed due to rain. Her school chose not to do the make up meet for some reason, so she will only run three meets.

They did not run separate heats for the 800m and 1600m

Beach Photos

I just realized that I posted the link for the news show, but never posted the actual beach photos. So here they are! 

 It was a really fun day. The weather has turned cool again, so while Jessica took Winter to a specialist three hours away, River and I went to the zoo. I will post those pictures later.

In the News

Jessica and I ended up on the news quite by coincidence the other day when we decided to head to the beach after doing a couple of errands.

Here is the LINK

Photography is Over

So I'll just post a few of the photos I took during the five weeks. You have seen many of these before.

We had to practice taking pictures of this flower during class. 

She was the model for our portrait practice. I did not like the lighting, so changed my camera to monochrome.

We were supposed to take photos of this dance class that meets nearby. But there were only two couples dancing, and that made for boring photos, so I went for the feet with my telephoto lens.

 Any thoughts? I'd like a Nikon Df camera if anyone has a spare lying around. LOL.

Jasmine is 17!

And Adam came home to help celebrate. He took Jasmine to a movie the day before her birthday, and we had cake that night.

Then Sunday, which was her real birthday, I took her on a shopping trip along the panhandle. We got look alike Nikes among other things. Mostly we had fun.

Our photography assignment was to take portraits, but I haven't taken any except a few shots of Jasmine on the trip. We were going to go the beach and take photos, but ran out of time.

Jasmine has decided to collect keys, but they are harder to find than you'd think. And expensive. The man wanted $10 each for these at a flea market (not ours) but let her have them 3 for $20.

We ate lunch at the Destin Panera.

And bought shoes at the Silver Sands Nike store.
Right now we are in the middle of several projects around the house, but I didn't think about taking photos of the work in progress. Guess I'll take photos of the finished projects.
