Hardy , Virginia. We were trying to take a Christmas card photo
November 2011. Hardy, Virginia
Grandson Jack, as Superman, scales the wall at his other grandparents’ home.
I received this beautiful photo today from Marlene in Hardy, VA. How about that butterfly in the sunflower blossom? Although we are officially in Fall, it sure felt like a hot summer day today and that was in Pittsburgh, Thanks Marlene for sharing your vibrant and colorful photo.
Do you have a doll with crocheted clothes, right on its body?
Marlene’s cousin made many of these bride dolls and I photographed hers when we were in Hardy. Virginia,
There is a 1951 pattern available for $1.49
Would like to make a gallery of vintage crochet dolls and their clothes if you want to share a pic or two.
Joanne, i know you have that poodle! Are people still creating these? Share your photos.
Look what just arrived from Omaha! Joanne sent her Poodle crocheted by Aunt Angie
Thanks to everyone who sent birthday greetings. Nothing like announcing “Hey, it’s my birthday” publicly and then being the recipient of such lovely wishes.
Rain kept us from going to see fireworks Thursday night. Anna had her Pap light a sparkler or two and she tired to enjoy them in the rain in the front yard.
For the second day in a row I took the photos from the porch. It was totally dark.
The first photo was taken without a flash but there was some light from the house and the sparkler.
The second was taken with hand-held off-camera flash. Thought i would experiment as I read about it but never really tried it. I avoid using the flash as much as possible but wanted to experiment for some different dramatic lighting effects. Thanks Anna you were most cooperative.
The cord I bought about 9 years ago and never really used. I will try it again when I have some more willing subjects.
you can see the raindrops
Not too dramatic lighting but a few visible raindrops.
Experimenting with light and hand held off camera flash
Anna in motion. With flash.
Hardy, Virginia (near Roanoke) weekend at the other Grandparents’ home.
Grandkids and their cousin on the move.
Grandma has to be fast with the camera – lens and shutter, barely time to check focus. Everyone growing up before my eyes.
So engrossed, they don’t notice
old Grandma and her camera.
