SHOWING OFF!!!








Posted by Picasa


It seems we have lived on a baseball field lately.

Practices.

Games.

I took my new arrival with us for a little practice of our own.

I took 186 shots.

Some of my favorites were what was NOT on the field.

Cole and his little friend Holland, played on the bleachers.

Up and down.

Down and up.

Jumping.

Climbing.

Playing Tag.

I am now considering having the swing set removed from my backyard.

And installing bleachers.

They are apparently all the rage for a four-year-old.

Very nice. I like the way that the colors pop. It looks like the new addition is definitely a welcome one!

Carol said...

Impressive.

Bleachers eh? Well they're bound to increase the value of your home/baseball field.

duchess said...

The pictures are lookin' good.
Where you using a zoom lens or the one that is standard on your camera?

Bleachers, huh? The extra seating could come in handy for those "late night" neighborhood fireworks shows.

Stephanie said...

Did you really take 186 shots?! Wow...busy lady! The ones you posted are spectacular! I love the upside down one - so cute!

C&C Mama said...

Great pictures!! This baseball season was my son's first and my daughter still crys when we drive by because she wants to play...the climbed up and down the bleachers for the entire game. CUTE!!

Jen said...

OMG that camera takes some beautiful pictures! Congrats on your new arrival!

Robyn said...

I do that too, I take more pictures away from the game than of the actual game.
Great photos, looks like the camera is working out for you.

April said...

Krystyn said...

Grammy Staffy said...

I agree with Krystyn. Great pictures with the new addition to your family. By the way you really had me going on your new addition post.

Have a great day.... come by and pick up your tag....luv ya

Lauren said...

Those pictures are beautiful :)

and I agree...what is it with the bleachers?

Cecily R said...

Your new arrival is (as my brother would say) Kitchen with a B! I am super totally green with envy!!

Those pictures are fantastic!

And you might just have something there with your bleacher idea. What could be finer for a four year old?

Thanks for playing PSF with us this week!!!

Kristen said...

I tell you, your pictures are awesome. The colors, the action, the fleeting moments, you captured them all! :)

So glad to hear that you LOVE your new arrival. I would have felt terrible if it was not what you had hoped. :)

Jonny's Mommy said...

Ah man..these photos are seriously awesome!

I love the candid moments!

Mamasphere said...

Great pictures. For some reason on your Nikon post, I thought you listed links to YOUR photos, but they were for other photographers. So glad to be able to see your camera in action! Although it only makes me want one even more.

The Mom said...

Great pics you can really tell the difference can't you?!

The Reed's said...

Wendi,

We had this all mixed up. I need lessons from you!! I love these! I am saving up to get a lens to go with my camera.. Can't Wait!!

imbeingheldhostage said...

ok, do people give you a bad time for shooting off a couple of hundred photos at one event? I get it all the time :-)
I came over for your PSF, great shots!

McMommy said...

THAT CAMERA IS AWESOME!! The colors..oh so rich and vibrant!! I love it all!

Sue said...

Awesome pictures!
And bleachers, it won't be long before they are making out under them, so be careful what you wish for! LOL

Rach (Mommy Learns to Blog) said...

I. Am. Jealous.

I want a fabulous new camera too.

Your pictures are AMAZING. Love the colors, and the action.

Thanks for the tip on the bleachers, now I will not feel guilty that we do not have a swingset.

Did they win the game?!?

Susan said...

Great shots! Isn't it funny how kids always seem to have more fun playing with nontoy items than actual playthings. At least we can feel good about the imaginative play and creativity they are exercising.

just jamie said...

Oh wendi, you are very good with that new baby of yours Wow. And Holland (adorable name) is a cutie.

LaskiGal said...

I was in awe of these photos! They are gorgeous! I'm really wanting a new addition as well . . . my four year old camera is screaming for a sibling!

Which Nikon is it??? D40? D60???

Great work!!! Oh, and your subject matter was pretty darned awesome as well.

Amber said...

Ahhhh, bleachers would be PERFECT for me as well to watch my daughter call out "WATCH ME!" 1,000X per day!

4funboys said...

I love those photos!!!

keep clicking....

I have camera envy... but NOT baseball envy.

Shannon said...

Great shots - how cute are they???? You're doing very well with the new camera, I bet you're having a total blast playing with it :-)

Cheffie-Mom said...

What great pictures! Very clear and wonderful colors! Have a great day and stop by anytime!
