No bubbles-no bugs-no birds--just kids
Lens: 18-250 Pentax Camera: K5 Photo Location: Wakefield Ma 
Posted By: charliezap, 06-13-2012, 03:38 PM

I'm just as guilty as many of us when we take a plethora of shots just to get a keeper.These are just one shot takes that even my wife who is at times is my harshest critic liked. The 3rd shot is the obligatory K5 pastel mode that doesn't look half bad.All shots were taken with the Pentax work horse lens 18-250 that at times can pull a rabbit out of a hat.--charliezap

They are nice family keepers for sure, but the 45-degree (or more) head tilt usually comes across as too cute or contrived.

The girl Bella was just being Bella.At that moment in time--that's the way she was.If I tried to present it differently the moment of her essence would not be the same.Kids and kittens are so unpredictable and we never know how that split second in time is going to look like.--charliezap

My wife's friend Susan had her son over from San Fran and we went over to say hello.After a while of socializing I went outside where the kids were playing and grabbed a few quick shots.---charliezap

Indeed the weather here has been frightful, and that's not a Christmas carol Rain followed by rain and some more rain. Today is looking promising. Plan to cut the lawn before I need a sickle or machete and then hope to bring out the hurricane of bubbles !
