Don't know if you've noticed lately...

..but I've been putting photos taken by family members as my header photos.

Seems I have spawned a whole line of great photographers..

Son Jeff..




Daughters Brandi ...









....and April..







 Granddaughter Emily..







Grandson Brian







...and now grandson, Connor






....but ya know..they come by it naturally..from Moi..

Just look at the "action" shots this Grandma got of our Chicken Sitting assignment......

..um..wait..

 
come on...slow down..



OK..well maybe not...

..but they also didn't  get it from Grandpa either...





"What goes up...must come down.."


So, grab your camera.............and hand it over to the kids.  You won't be disappointed :-)

Why is it that kids (even 6 yr. old grandsons) take better pictures than I do?? It's so sad. Well, not sad for them, but sad for me. You get my meaning...Those are terrific. Love your new headers. You really must put the dismount (last picture) on there too. Come on, please!

What a great job they do! My seven year old grand daughter is amazing with a camera....MY camera! She took 165 pictures in ONE evening earlier this summer! My son and both daughters are all semi professionals. Now, ME?? Nope! I look BETTER a little blurry.

Beautiful pictures! I think my favorite is the first one listed for Brandi (of the bird) :)

They are talented and you are brave! I don't give my camera to anyone and I glare at everyone who has a camera with a don't.you.even.dare. What a sport you are!

Fun post Colleen looks like you had a fun time with Conner. Great pictures. Some of the best pictures were taken by my little grandkids, I thought why not the deletable? Some of the shots they take I would never have thought of. Have fun!

You most certainly spawned some pros the Colleen:) I've noticed the credits on your header. And I hope April had a good zoom on hers. That bear is a little close..

Most definately, you MUST use the dismount as a header...really.

Enjoy all your fun*ness!

stupid little keys on the laptop...
"you spawned some pros THERE colleen." the caps don't always cooperate either :)

Wow Colleen! The pictures are so awesome, I love the one that's looking up what looks like a spiral staircase? These pictures are framers for sure! And make great header pics. Love the ones on the "horse" to funny!

They really do a great job with their shots!
Those bears are very unusual. And I've been trying to get a hummingbird all week and couldn't.

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

I must say...you have a very talented family of photographers!

Wow! They have taken some great photos. I prefer to be the one who takes the pictures because no one in my family seems to think outside the box when it comes to capturing the scenery and surroundings. There are no pictures of me in Nepal except the few I asked for because no one thought to take any. Hubby took short little video snippits of me on the elephants but not one single picture. :/ When we hit Paris the end of this month, you better believe someone else will be behind the camera and I will get my mug in there as often as I can. :) Have a great day!

You crack me up! I sometimes think I need a new camera because my pic's are never that great... but hmmm... maybe it's just me! You 'do' have some great photographers in your family... I noticed the hummingbird header right away!! :o)

Lucy said...

Okay - I'm hiring your children. And your children's children. These kids today!!!! Technology is no challenge for them. I want to find a class (photograpy) so I can practice my new camera that I haven't used yet because I don't know how to use it. As soon as it gets paid for, I will learn very fast.

Of course I have noticed your Header pics. Nice to know they are by your talented family.

Those are all stunning!
Such a great idea.
Love the sunset!

They certainly are doing well behind a camera. But yours and Mr B's win for getting the most laughs.
