If you deprive a Mommy of enough sleep...

You might end up with rambles of nothingness and images from her camera that reflect a lazy day by the pool where we desperately tried to air away the cobwebs of being in the hospital for what seems like weeks...rather than days...


But you might end up with a couple of really cool shots...because the overexhausted Mommy hanging by the pool was reading her camera owner's manual (imagine doing such a thing!)...and she learned that by changing the shutter speed she could make the water look:


a) Frozen in air like this!



Or b) like it is flowing through the photo like this!!


Or you might capture a red cast that can not be dipped into the pool and will have to spend weeks right here -- perched poolside watching the fun.


And you are sure to find that as the sun sets in our desert, we can ALL enjoy some marshmallows roasted on the fire...


And humor the Mommy who is having such fun playing with the shutter stops...



Cause capturing her crew decked out in their pjs, bonnets and toting marshmallows is what blesses this Mommy every day!

Those pictures are TOO cool! I love the frozen water one! I enjoyed all your surgery posts and noted that almost all of them were made AFTER 10 pm. Hmm... Glad you're home!
