good things

Thanks to those of you who have participated in my photo challenge and giveaway... there's still a little bit of time to enter both!

I've been in Atlanta the last two days, visiting my family. It was a great trip - despite being hugely pregnant. It's a three hour drive one-way so it's quite the haul but it was worth it see my mom and spend some time with my sister Abi and her family. I enjoyed driving around my hometown... it's always nice to be home.

We went to the Noah's Ark rescue zoo and I took lots of photos... I tell you what, photography at the zoo is challenging!!  I was constantly changing my camera's settings and got a lot of over/under exposed shots. I also struggled with my camera's auto-focus focusing on the gates instead of the animals... I've got lots to share but I thought I'd quickly post this one for now... it's one of my favorites. Beth enjoyed taking photos of the animals almost as much as Abi & I did :)


I'll post more tomorrow!

Great shot. I love capturing others taking picturs. Their focus and concentration is wonderful.

Hope you're having a nice day!

Lisa said...

I love the intense look on her face.

Abi said...

Wow, the light on her face is beautiful... the mix of bright sun and deep shade was really challenging but you nailed it!

Michelle said...

Great photo, she looks so grown up!
I also struggled with constantly changing settings when we went to the Pet Porpoise Pool recently, lots of overexposed shots, lol. Stuff kept happening so quickly I'd forget to check my settings first!
