We went back to one my favorite parks this morning. It was a little chilly at first, but warmed up quickly. The fresh air was good for all of us because we all seemed to be struggling with the time change and were more tired and cranky than usual.
Today I used my 50mm f/1.8 outdoors, where I usually use my kit lens so that I can zoom in and get all the great shots. I forgot how amazingly sharp that lens is outdoors!! Maybe I’ll prefer prime lenses after all! (I returned my Tamron. It was way too slow for my tastes and I’m not willing to exchange it for another Tamron, even if some people say it might be the copy. I ordered a used 35mm-70mm f/2.8 Nikon lens for about the same price as a Tamron at www.usedcameras.com. It has a smaller focal range, but it’s still in the range I’m looking for, and it’s also a Nikon so the quality will be better.)
Today I noticed how many things the two of my children have in common. The way they move, talk, and gesture are eerily similar. Days like today make me feel like I really do have twins.
These are from the same park, but in the grassy area that overlooks into the backyard patios of the neighborhood nearby. Someone’s dog was barking so they went off to check it out. Then they started barking back at the dog. It was adorable, although probably not for the neighbors.
Some other super cute ones. This is Cooper’s nervous stance. He’s done it since he was a baby. My husband does the same motion when he’s nervous or excited (except only with one hand). Charlotte has recently started mimicking Cooper on this.
