Maura (6), Jack (8)and I spent an hour in Half Price Books on Lane Ave while we waited to meet the family for breakfast for dinner at Whole Foods after swim practice.
We bought a couple of books and Maura said she needed an alarm clock to get up in time for her daily 8 am dive practice. Sounded reasonable to me.
The one she chose makes the sound of hogs-
No buzzer. No bells, no sonar beep- PIGS!!
Turns out it would be my new Grandson’s birth date but we didn’t know that fact in the morning. Video
Cecilia, of thekitchensgarden do they sound authentic ?
In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “On the Way.”
Thank you for the lovely bubbles in late day light, dear Granddaughter Anna.
You are a great guest blogger. I love how you see your world and capture it!
(remember the mannequin legs in the pickup truck?)
your Grandma, FF Ruthie
Columbus, Ohio. Holiday weekend with the family. St Patrick Church.
Easter Vigil Saturday evening. The first portion- the Lucernarium.
To photograph a religious ceremony or not. That was the question. Someone was firing off electronic flash.Ugh.
I was trying for minimal camera shake. Being unobtrusive. Limit myself to a few shots.
It was really dark. Just candlelight. And the light of the bonfire from which they lit the Paschal Candle.
After everyone processed into the church, I stayed back and photographed the lilies on the table with the bonfire in the background.
And Donald and Marlene, Erika’s parents were inside the church a bit of a blur.
A woman in front was a blur, too.
Granddaughter Anna coming into the pew. Then I put the camera away in my bag and zipped it so I wouldn’t try to capture the ephemeral smoke from the incense.
Seven readings and psalms and intermittent prayers after each reading, all the altar candles are lit, the lights come on and as the Gloria is sung, the church bells peal and the sanctus bells ring and ring and ring.
And that is just the beginning…..
One of the first images I captured with the new mirrorless camera when I was out in Ohio with the family for Christmas.
Granddaughter Anna with the reflected light from an iPad, no other light.
When one of the grandkids sees something when they’re out and about and thinks-
“oooh, a good one for Grandma’s Blog”, takes a picture to send to me, I like to share it.
Good to encourage their “seeing”.
I told Anna I’ll help her start a blog of her very own. I think she has a great eye. She could start once a week, not daily.
Two years ago Anna took the photo of the pick up truck filled with mannequin legs, headed “to the dummy store.”
I love it when the family calls on FaceTime or SKYPE. Makes them seem so much closer.
I should crop me out of this one but I took this photo by pressing the home button and the top button.
Granddaughter Anna was speaking with me via a device as her Mom looks on.
The light on her face seemed so nice.
