National Museum of Natural History

Yesterday, my husband, sister-in-law, daughter, and I took a trip in to Washington DC to go to the National Museum of Natural History. I brought my new Mark II with my 50mm 1.4 on it and my Rebel with my Tamron 17-50 2.8. Yes, I walked around with two cameras, plus my huge bag with my 100mm macro in it. No, I was not embarrassed. Yes, my husband was :)

project 52 of 2013 | low light

Let's talk about irony: last week's challenge was "cold" and it was warm here...and this week's is
"low light" but we got snow! Which, as you might imagine, bounces quite a bit of light. I wondered out loud why Mother Nature didn't want me to succeed in this weekly photo challenge.

project 52 of 2013 | cold

This week's challenge is "cold." I was expecting snow here on Thursday, but it came and went without even a flake (and it's in the 50s this weekend). So my next thought was to try and freeze fruit in an ice cube...but did you know the ice turns cloudy if it's not distilled water?? Science experiment fail. So then in a final act of desperation, I spritzed a flower with water and put it in the ice tray, hoping to get little crystals on the petals, but it just looked wet. Please see exhibit A.

Every woman is affected by pregnancy differently. Some are more emotional than before, some are hungry all the time... for me, I nest. With my daughter I insisted we paint the entire interior of the house. This time, I am insisting we organize. A place for everything and everything in its place. Even my daughter is doing her part by ensuring shoes are lined up neatly by the front door - without being asked.

project 52 of 2013 | DOF

This week's challenge was "depth of field." I was wanting to do something a little artsy but sometimes fate just hands you the perfect opportunity - pun intended.

Two-Weeks New Mr. T | Northern Virginia Photographer

Last weekend I was invited to take pictures of the beautiful, two-weeks-new Mr. T - you might remember him from my Project 52 last Sunday. Mom and Dad asked that their faces not appear online, so I'm only sharing a few of their little man. See the rest of his debut on Facebook to keep my blog loading at an appropriate speed ;)

project 52 of 2013 | new

This year, I'm very excited to be participating in a "52 of 2013" photo blog hop! Each week we will be assigned a different theme, and we'll post our image on Sunday at Noon. Except for me...I'll post mine some time around 4:30 when I remember.

Oh, hello.

You know that feeling when you keep meaning to do something, but you push it off until tomorrow - and next thing you know "tomorrow" is two months later?

That's this blog. Sorry about that.
