Anna, Maura, Michael and Jack helped Pap celebrate his birthday Saturday evening. (Donald is Erika’s dad)
Try to not shoot into the light source. Used the Canon 5D with the 50mm L series lens with available light
I photographed the three grandkids in the garage on the way to church. Jack was under the weather and stayed home with Pap.
Anna Maura and Michael in the garage. You know how I love to photograph them in the ambient light.
Not to leave anyone out- Jack giving the thumbs up after a good report at Children’s Hospital. Photographed by his dad earlier in the afternoon.
Posing for their other grandmother, Marlene.
How do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!
Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
River and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside–
Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown–
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!
Robert Louis Stevenson

p.s. click here to see Madhu’s entry at The Urge to Wander blog photographerd at a Shinto Shrine in Japan.
In my opinion, hers is the best of all the responses I viewed!
I’m not going to post 6 galleries of family this week. I couldn’t stop myself with the windows.
You know I have thousands of images of my family. Some of my favorite subjects to photograph. I will restrain myself.
Henry Otto Hendricks is in the middle at the bottom. I believe the man in the top left is my father’s grandfather. Had better check my notes.
Matthew Laura and Mark, grown up

Getting Ready for a family photo Saturday night. Henry is front and center and everyone else is blurred.
This was taken at PNC Park last August at a Pirates Game. People at Work is an ongoing project for me and this is one from the archives.
The WordPress Weekly Challenge didn’t appear in my email today so am thinking of a word to go with this image. Any suggestions?
Not that one should consume any of this cotton candy confection, but I liked the photograph.
Wonder how heavy it is to carry that palette of cotton candy, so high in the air.
Found an article from Chicago- Behind-the Scenes Ballpark Jobs by Debra Auerbach which discusses food vendors and concessions. And Cotton Candy originated “at the 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair” says Kitchen Daily Blog where there’s a recipe.
I was sifting through old photographs on one of the snow days. You know those awful albums with the adhesive on the pages to stick the photos to the page?
Found this shot I took (film) of my son Mark (he’ll be 38 in May) and noticed the random dad taking a family photograph.
And inspired by Toying With Thread crochet blog by Stef- it’s the new year – I created Teenagers Knit Blog and the first post is up today if you have time to check it out.
Note to self: Remember how I mugged for the camera in 1959 when I’m attempting to photograph the grandchildren in 2014!
Pittsburgh Public Schools was closed today. I did some sorting and found some old family photos. My family didn’t own a camera that I know of but I think my sister took this photo somehow and I will ask her tomorrow and add any details. My cousins may have been involved. Paul? John B?
An iPhone photo of a photo isn’t the best quality but you get the idea.
Either Michael or Jack, one of my grandsons, took this photo of Star Wars figures.. I found it in my December Photo Stream in Aperture tonight.
I hadn’t seen it before, didn’t notice it. I know I didn’t take it. The kids love to use the electronic devices.
Any it was all set up and photographed (on the piano I’m fairly certain) and here’s their shot. Guest blog photo by one of them.
I’d left the mini Light Sabers in a gift box with a friend’s gift but she mailed them out from Pittsburgh in a card so they got to Ohio in time for Christmas. Need light sabers to do battle!! Thanks V.
Something about mini figures invites creative and imaginative play.
Joy and you pair it up with JUMP. For joy, that is.
Joy to the World (church or another Three Dog Night version).
Joy? An old fahioned liquid dish soap- none available to photograph tonight.
Joy is the emotion I’d most like to capture in a selfie? (Just thought I’d throw that new word in before the end of 2013 since it was deemed new word of the year.)
Last year’s Christmas card shoot of the grandchildren came to mind. Jumping for Joy.
The grandchildren certainly bring me a lot of joyful moments to capture.
Wishing everyone a new year with lots of joy in it!
Photographed Thanksgiving 2012 in Hardy Virginia.
Second of a series. Beanie Weenies was (were?) the first.
Comfort food as the days get shorter and the temp outside dipped down to 12.
Our systems are still adjusting to the cold and urge to crawl into a cave and hibernate.
My kitchen back door window looked like this after I made a cup of tea.
so I boiled some noodles
Buttered a retro baking dish I bought at a thrift shop in Wisconsin one summer
I crumbled some saltines and cut in some butter and put the mixture to the side
and then I opened some cans
Yes, a new low point in the culinary department around here.
Tuna Noodle Casserole coming up! Comfort food series part two.
Freshly ground pepper will give it some zip!
BTW, you just mix the drained noodles into the soup mixture combined with an almost- can of milk oh and add the tuna.
Here it is baking in the oven.
Thanks to Steve there was a head of ICEBERG lettuce. Oil and vinegar just didn’t fit
Found an almost empty jar of mayo and added some ketchup and chopped up bread and butter pickles and served a slug of lettuce on a glass plate, topped with dressing.
The casserole browned nicely.
I miss you Mom.
