Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO800 | f/1.8 | 1/100 | This is the scene at the end of Ms 4’s playdate today. Indeed it was a super fun one, as it is always the case when G and A came to play. I love how they were just goofing around on top of each other on a beanie bag. Big grins, happy faces, and one totally flattened beanie bag 🙂
My son’s Lego table looked great for a couple of days after that big clean in August. From then to now, more than 3 months long, the table was totally covered by Lego pieces that you couldn’t even see the surface anymore. Today I couldn’t take it anymore. I could see some dust peeking through some of the pieces, so I just threw them all into the ‘half-way’ box (to be sorted out later), and separated all the ready-made pieces, […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO640 | f/7.1 | 1/30 | Run baby run. When dinner time came and I still did not have any photo for today’s post, I knew it was time to go to the oval and let the kids run free. We missed the perfect golden hour light because it took forever for this family to get ready, so I focused more on the kids’ action while we were at the […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO800 | f/3.2 | 1/20 | A lamington is a dessert of Australian origin. It consists of squares of sponge cake coated first in a layer of traditionally chocolate icing, then in desiccated coconut. (source: Wikipedia) Baking Friday is here again. Lamington is one of my family’s favourites, and it’s been quite awhile since the last time I made these babies. As I expected, once my kids found out what I was doing, they came and circling close to […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO500 | f/3.2 | 1/100| Two hours. Three kids. Loads and loads of glitter. Plus Glue. The table looked like Tinkerbell just puke her gut full of fairy dust all over it. I’ve never seen so much sparkle!
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO320 | f/3.5 | 1/320 | It pays to take my camera everywhere. Like today. It was our typical Monday, we didn’t do anything special that could warrant a ‘special’ shot. Ms 4 and I arrived a bit early at my son’s school, so we had to wait a bit until he came out. She moved to the passenger seat and reclined the seat so she could lie down. A bit tired she […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/3.2 | 1/20 | Not all pastas are tasted the same, in my children’s eyes. Regardless of the pasta sauce and my 15 minutes length explanation of how pasta is made, they still believe that the bow-tie pasta (farfalle) is the most delicious of all. There is no logic in this. I stopped fighting for the ‘truth’ watching how eager they ate their ‘most delicious’ pasta dinner. They will meet the […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO800 | f/5.6 | 1/40 | When fellow 365 project doers who live in the northern hemisphere started to complain on the fact that their days are getting shorter, I am rejoicing the opposite here living down under. The day light is getting longer, and the days are even longer still as summer is yet to arrive. My kids were enjoying that short time post-dinner before they had to get […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO160 | f/5.6 | 1/250 | This was a scene from our ladies’ morning tea this morning to celebrate our dear friend’s 40th birthday. Happy birthday, Ik!
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO320 | f/2.8 | 1/125 | I took this shot pointing my camera behind the thick foliage under the deck. Dog was chillin’ on the sand under the deck ready for his afternoon nap. This is his favourite place outside the house. Explains why there are tons of sand/dirt on the floor inside our house every single day despite my obsessive floor-sweeping.
