Today we (Tara, Shelby, Mom, Allison and Erik) gave Dad his birthday gift, as well as his Father’s Day and part of his Anniversary gift (his part). We gave Dad a new Digital SLR Camera. A Nikon D40. So now we have 3 Nikon’s in the Family. Tara has a D70, I have a D80 and Dad has a D40. Dad taught is much about photography when we were younger, Tara and I even used his old Pentax for our photography classes over the years. We learned to love taking photos from our Dad. And since he had been using my 12+ year old Kodak 240 we figured that it was time for him to upgrade. Since we all have Nikon’s we can easily share lenses.
I am looking forward to going out to take pictures with Dad on upcoming weekends. I’m thinking that a family Photowalk is in order, maybe in downtown Falmouth since it is an unwired community. We can photowalk downtown and then upload the photowalk with the free wireless internet that they have downtown.
Today was also SB3, I call it S – B- Three but others are calling it S-B-Cubed. The party was for our friend Stephen The Dog. It was Stephen’s Blowout Birthday Bash. 3Bs. That is how I think of it.
There were tons of great dishes at the party and we ate very well. Many of Stephen’s neighborhood friends came over on two legs and four. There was Joey and Ginger and Max. Then there were a ton of neighborhood kids. Everyone had a great time and I took a ton of pictures to send to our friends Andy and Rondi, Stephen’s people.
Today I continued to use my telephoto macro lens and got some great shots of the lilies in the front yard. Last year I took many pictures of the lilies and my sister Tara and I cross polinated a bunch of the different lilies, there are many that are about to bloom, I am not happy that I won’t be around to see all of them bloom this week. the one that I did see is a deep red, there weren’t any very deep red ones last year so this is probably one of our experimental ones. Look for it to make an appearance next Sunday for Green Thumb Sunday, a new meme that I am participating in.
