A Photographer in the Making

This little angel here had a bad day at school today.  He did not get his way so he made sure no one else did either.  After dealing with his mother and a few moments in time out.  He asked if he can take some pictures.  I started to say no because of the behavior today but decided to see what he can do.

The first image is one I took while showing him how to keep one eye open so he can look in the viewfinder.   The rest are all his.

Do we have a budding photographer here?

Keeping one eye open

 

He gave me instructions on how to pose.  He told me to do some of the same things that I say to him.

New ventures coming

I got the word on Thursday that I am being laid off on March 31, 2017 just 131 days away and counting down.  In total nearly 1400 people are losing their jobs over an 14 month period.  I am part of the 2nd group to leave.  I knew it was possible since the company will not be servicing mortgage loans for a certain type of client any longer but I was hoping that I was in the 50% that was going to stay till the end or I chose otherwise.  They will be holding job fairs and helping us with updating our resumes, so hopefully I won’t be jobless come April 1st.

Staying positive and making light of the situation for now is how me and a few others are dealing with it.  One of the things that we are going to do is have a going away party of us and have some battery operated candles and as we leave someone will turn off our candle.  Kinda like the show Survivor.

This is Lake Worth. As a kid my mother would take us here to go swimming back in the early 70’s. It is now closed but I still have some good memories.

Just a Bit of Attitude

I do not know why but I have a thing for bugs, insects and such.  My grandson Arai is aware of this so when every he sees a bug he calls me to take pictures of it.

Yesterday he saw a butterfly on my flowers and proceeded to tell me to come out “….Mom-mom come here there’s a white butterfly with a mole on it, hurry-up and be quite you don’t want to scare it…”.  He listens so well (when he wants to).

After this was taken he chose not to listen to his mother and was sent to “time-out”.  He was all attitude at that point.

But lucky for us, his attitudes do not last long.  Within 5 minutes we were back looking for more insects to photograph.

Almost over…

The summer went way to fast for me. I did not get to do many of the things that I said I would. Life events always seemed to ge in the way.  But that is OK.

Summer will be officially over in 20 days. That is when fall begins here in the US, September 21st.

Some of the leaves have already started to change and leaves are falling. There will be some beautiful pictures to take. But I am not ready for this change.

First Morning of Vacation!!

 

I arrived in OBX (Outer Banks, NC) yesterday afternoon for our annual family vacation.

A tradition that my father and I have is to get up and go to the beach to watch the sunrise.  Back in New Jersey I can never get up this early to go to the shore to see this amazing wonder.
