We went to a couple of local farm stands yesterday with my sisters and their children. It's nothing like a midwest pumpkin patch, but we had fun.
But, it makes me want to make a trip back to some of our old haunts just visit a patch...
I learned a little bit more about my camera and worked on adjusting aperture and shutter speed. And light. I think I ended up taking some better pictures than I have in the past. Yay!
Evan was kind enough to be my subject for about...20 pictures. I finally got my focus right.
Working on the lighting. This was a strap with cups on it that the kids could wheel corn up to the goats on the ledge with.
Here I was working on focus. See that Cam is in focus and the goat isn't, while Aves is blurred and the goat isn't.
More lighting experimenting.
Just a cute picture.
Daddy and Delcie.
Then we moved on to the other market. We picked out our pumpkins here.
We took some cousins pictures on the pumpkin wagon. All the cousins but one, who lives in Virginia and couldn't make it ;)
Oops! That was the outtake, lol!
Here's a better one...
And, we took pics of just our girls.
And, of course, the outtake:
Yea, they're mine. Ha ha!
Our little pumpkin. Or "punkin".
We completely forgot to take a picture of us outside, so we'll have to do it next time. So, we took one in the kitchen.
Oh, and, happy day, I ordered a new lens for my camera!!! I ordered it from a company that closes for all Jewish holidays and Sabbath, so, although I decided early in the week that I wanted it, I had to wait until sundown last night to place the order. But, I got a notification that it's shipped already. Yippee!
