This past Tuesday I got down and knelt, used my 70-200 lens.
Tried to steady the camera. Get the shot.
Anticipating when to press the shutter button.
Freezing the action is a challenge.
Not even 24 hours old. My daughter Laura and her husband James have a new member of the family.
Charles Joseph. 7 pounds 15 ounces. 19 1/2 inches long.
He arrived Thursday night but Anna and Michael were home in bed resting up for the Peppe Meet at Ohio State Swim Club Friday afternoon.
Friday morning, we went to Riverside hospital on the way to the swim meet. It was on the way to OSU.
Anna meets baby Charles-
Michael gets a turn with Charles on the Boppy
Anna waits for another turn to hold her new first cousin.

Their Dad Mark ( my son) is now an uncle
and we talked to Uncle Matty and Natalya in Croatia via SKYPE
Here are the two Grandmas
and here is the new little family
They only call it if there’s lightning.
And there wasn’t.

Coach Jeff gave Maura the DUCKS mascot to take care of until Tuesday practice!
I’ve shot a lot of rainbows.
And I’m in the front passenger seat with my camera out of the bag.
’cause we just ran out of the swim meet when it started to pour.
The magic of wet pavement. The sky growing dark.
Thanks Erika for driving. I turn the ride home into a car headlights in the rain reflection study. 70-200 L series lens on the Canon 5D Mark ii Trying to hold it steady in a moving car another challenge.
Shadowed I’ve a lot of shadows but not that many photos with “shadowed”
Always trying to catch the action shot. The feel of motion. But then it ends up stiff.
Here is Maura starting the backstroke heat.
Maura, forever frozen, in this tiny second, as she pushes off the wall.
The day started at the Ohio State University McCorkle Aquatic Pavilion.
I got there close to 6:30 AM Sunday. The younger grandchildren were swimming in the morning and the two older were swimming in the afternoon.
All the rest of the family got home at 8:30 PM!. I had to head back to Pittsburgh around 1 as snow was predicted and it’s best to drive in daylight.
There were so many swimmers in the pool at once. How they don’t bump into one another is amazing to me.

Thanks Marlene for holding it up while I got an iPhone pic
It doesn’t sound good to say “Anna (11) shot her sister Maura (almost 6) while she was sleeping in the hotel.”
But that is exactly what she did-
(And the next time we are together Anna, your ole Grandma is going to help you start your very own blog!)
Your eye sees a lot! Or should I say -Your eyes see a lot! Thanks for sharing.
I love that you saw Maura asleep on the floor and texted the photo to me at 11:52 PM
