December 7, 2010 – Playtime

Posted in Snapshot365 with tags , , , , , , on December 7, 2010 by AZSalsman

December 7, 2010I almost got what I was after in this picture.  In part it was the relationship of two children at play – one being a 1.5 year old enjoying the moment and the other a 7 year old playing the older, responsible caregiver.

Photographically, though, I really wanted to capture the light edges of the evening sunset.  There is an element of the but not quite to the extent I wanted.  There is always, in my opinion, a romantic, peaceful feeling that comes from the glimmer of the sun rays.

Oh well.  Photographing kids is always a challenge because you have a short wind of time to capture “the moment” and they aren’t old enough to really wait for the camera guy.  Oh well, tomorrow is another day.

Okay, I was doing a photo shoot for the cover of the South Mountain Villager. These are two of the couple hundred I took. I could not settle on only one. Now I have to choose that I need for the cover.

August 12, 2010This is what is left after Doctor Brooke (5 yrs old) and Nurse Ariana (8 yrs old) used their instruments to help make a sick man well.  I had my hair combed to avoid cancer; tubes placed in my arms; my blood removed, tested, and replaced; holes in the veins fixed; tested to see if I could say anything; even hypnotized to cluck like a chicken.  And they say that doctors don’t make house calls.

***Apologies for missing yesterday.  It was my first missed day but due to ill health, the thought of picking up a camera was just part of the mix.
