Photo a Day Challenge, Day 7


Jacob just turned 9.  Tonight was his party.  He's my "favorite" 9-year-old grandson, and his sister is my "favorite" 7-year-old granddaughter. 

The party was chaos.  The dad and the uncles wrestled with all the boys (there must have been 50 6 of them) right in the middle of the room where everyone was trying to talk--not in the completely empty other room.  hmmmm.  I'm too old for this.

I've noticed that my photography skills are deteriorating at an alarming rate.  I think I'll blame my equipment, or maybe the chaos, or maybe the lack of cooperation of my subjects.  And if you believe that, I have a bridge in the middle of Arizona to sell to you.  Sigh!

I love this "favorite"'s adorable (as are the kids)! much for that bridge? I've always wanted one of my own. :-)

I have had the same thoughts as you photos have been sub par. I'm wondering if it's me or the camera. I took some family photos right after the New Year and they came out pretty sad. I wanted to refund the people their money, even though they didn't pay much. People were totally out of focus in several of the shots. I felt really bad about it. Maybe that's part of shooting such a large group of people indoors?

My savings for new equipment is growing!!! :)
