Down By The Lake

April 8, 2011 at 10:30 PMJeremy

A couple of weeks ago we met up with some of the Segars and Shell families at Woodway Park to have lunch and catch up.

Jonathan seemed to really enjoy exploring and throwing stuff into the lake.

Jonathan Catch-Up

The boy, looking cool in his sagging pants.

I went out to work on the deck one day, and here's what I found later:

And then I went to work on the shed, and my little helper just had to climb the ladder and take a few swings with his hammer, too--this whole "being a dad" thing has its moments :-)

Jonathan had looked under the playset and said, "hey, a rabbit and a snake."  I said, "I highly doubt those two would be hanging out together."  I'm guessing the "snake" was the rope in the lower-left, but I was surprised that he was right about the bunny.

And now, the boy just being adorable:


Too close:

Nice Snowing You

April 8, 2011 at 10:10 PMJeremy

Yes, snow pictures (posting pretty late).

I'm a bit impressed that the first thing Jonathan wanted to do was shovel snow.  I told Marci that we should have taken him door to door shoveling driveways and sidewalks.

That's about how much snow we got.

And, of course, being Texas this was the next day:

Photography Catch-Up

April 8, 2011 at 10:00 PMJeremy

I haven't posted in forever, so I've got a lot of make-up work to do.  Here are just some random photos I've recently taken that I thought were cool.

I had to take a business trip to Forth Worth in January (yeah, really behind); this is the view I had from my hotel room. (it's amazing the kind of long exposures you can get with just the self-timer and propping the camera on its strap)

I was getting ready for work one day and spotted this guy (and what appears to be what was left of his prey) atop our brush pile.  Not as pretty as I'd like, but I was shooting through the back door window so as to not disturb him.

The "super moon" taken with a not-so-super-telephoto lens.

Squirrel, also shot from the back door.

Cars on Parade

October 31, 2010 at 5:01 PMJeremy

Parades are also a great time to get some cool pictures of cars, since they're usually clean, shiny, and moving pretty slowly.

Thinking of using this one as part of a triptych with two images I snagged at last year's parade.

This one was inexplicably out of focus and underexposed, but it looks pretty cool regardless.  I'll pretend I did it on purpose.

Mmm.... purdy.

(Were there cars in the parade that weren't Corvettes?  Beats me.)
