View St. Louis

Today, my kids and I went downtown St. Louis and rode on one of the riverboats. We had a gret day. We took Metro Link down town first. Then we went on the riverboat. This picture was taken during that ride.

Fountain in the Park

This is a fountain at a local park. It is one of my favorite spots close to home. I have tried to crop out the over exposed foliage in the foreground, but I cannot seem to remove them without removing the rainbow at the base of the fountain.

College Bound

This was taken at the University in our town. My kids attend a camp there every summer called Camp Read A Lot. Today was their last day of camp for this summer. The building in the distance is the building that camp was held in this summer.

Enjoying Time by the Pond

This was taken at a local park. The water runs into a small man made pond. We enjoyed this day very much. My kids are great about getting their pictures taken in places like this.

Beach View

This was taken on the first day of our Destin, FL vacation last summer. I have tried three different pieces of software to extract the EXIF information, but it seems to have been erased. I wanted to post this picture because it is one of my favorites.

Father's Day

In honor of Father's Day, I am posting a picture of my husband and our son at the Cardinal's game. My husband is the world's best father and husband. My own father passed away three years ago, so Father's Day is pretty much all about my husband and he deserves it.

Yes, this is my daughter. This was taken at a park around Easter time. It is a cropped image of a larger picture.

Daisy Dance

A picture of Gerber Daisies that I planted in a pot in my back yard. This is my favorite color of daisy.

I had my camera set on macro. 6.3mm. F4.0 @ 1/200s @ ISO 64.

Baby Found

This is a picture that was taken in my back yard. When my husband moved the wood pile up to the top of our hill for the summer, he found baby mice in the wood pile. Here is one of them.

I had my camera set on auto at 7.0mm. F4.5 @ 1/200s @ ISO 64.

The babies were put in a safe spot where we were sure their mother could find them but still as far away from our house as we could get them. ;-)

Making The Play

This was taken at my son's T-ball game on June 11, 2009. It's a little blurred because I was not as steady as I'd like due to rushing to get the shot.

I had my camera set on auto at 63.3mm. F3.5 @ 1/480s @ ISO 800.

I did use the back light feature in PhotoScape.
