    Self Portraits and mini bikes

    The mini bike was the boys Christmas gift that their Dad picked out.

    Ha! I am not sure I would have ever though of it but they do really like it.

    I really did not think I should take the time yesterday to get these shots so when I realized the focus was not finding us I knew I would just roll with it and take what I got.

    I like these more than I thought I would and am glad I did not have the time to redo them.

    I have been using my Gorillapod Tripod to take these shots.

    It is a really cool one that you can wrap around trees or take low shots like this.

    I would like to say I planned to use it but I actually was just too lazy to look for the missing attachment to my big tripod…

    What taking pictures with my boys actually looks like…

    Most of the time I just show you the end result of my self portraits with my boys.

    Here are some of the in between shots.

    They are not good at waiting patiently…

    Also, I probably have taken hundreds of shots of me walking into the shot.

    There must be sticks…

    “Take a picture of me attacking this tree.”

    “No, you need to go on this side…”

    aboysDSC_7292

    “Okay, no more stick.”

    They started making crazy noises.

    Me trying to figure out where I need to be to be in the shot.

    aboysDSC_7317

    Oops.

    aboysDSC_7318

    It still works, kind of.

    Me trying to figure out if the boys are in the shot…

    aboysDSC_7324

    I thought they both should stand.

    Nope.

    aboysDSC_7327

    Try again.

    aboysDSC_7328

    Focus was too low.

    They get nutty…okay they are nutty from the start.

    One more time!

    “Let’s make crying baby noises!”

    aboysDSC_7346

    Sometimes these goons just need to be tickled.

    aboysDSC_7348

    My youngest, “The mighty warriors have been defeated by tickling.”

    Did that make you tired?

    I shot these with my Nikon D600, 50mm lens, tripod, and the Interval Timer on the camera.

    I could not find my remote…

    Ha!

    Beautiful, fluffy flakes

    We had the most beautiful snow coming down Monday evening!

    My boys dress for warmth instead of style…

    Soft flakes make for some yummy ice cream!

    It is just Milk, Sugar, Vanilla, and Snow.

    You should make some!

    We hurried out the next morning to enjoy the snow before it melted!

    sledding

    I tried out a different angle for pics.

    climb

    I sat at the top of the hill so the sun would act as a back light and next to a tree to frame the shots with branches.

    climb2

    You can see more of the clutter in our yard this way but I like backlit subjects.

    I gave my camera to my oldest so I could get in a shot!

    This goof had a hat on top of a jacket hood.

    He said it was warmer that way.
