What Is This Place?

This site is a work in progress - much like life, actually. I am an amateur photographer who enjoys playing with my Canon EOS 10D. Questions, comments, and suggestions are always welcome, since I'm really just learning. Like what you see? Encouragement would be greatly appreciated!

Two for the Price of One!

Last week I was too busy to post a photo for Best Shot Monday, so today, you get two pictures. The first is from a trip Batman and I took to Santa Cruz during the long weekend last week. I'd never been, but I had so much fun! It was great, walking around, enjoying the sunshine, riding roller coasters, and playing silly carnival games. And all of it was done with a glorious view of the ocean. This is one of my favorite shots from the day, of the classically colorful ferris wheel:

The other picture is from my recent trip to Southern California with my mom and sister. While there, we visited my dad's grave, and I captured this picture of us all holding hands:

That's my family, together for one brief moment.

For more great shots, head over to Tracey's place.

    I love the angle on the first shot, there is something so classic about ferris wheels.

    And the second photo is just so touching. I'm so glad that you all got to do that together.

    I love the whimsy in the first shot...colorful and fun. You can almost feel the breeze in your hair.
    The second shot grabs me and shakes me to my core. I am not sure what to even say. Beautiful. Haunting. Moving...gripping. What a tender family moment.

    Those are both beautiful shots. I love all the colors in the first one. The second one is very precious. Thanks for sharing.

    Great shots Lara. I think that second one is terrific with the story it holds.

    Sweetness. Pretty pictures and I love the second one. Details sometimes speak louder than the "big picture."

    What they all said!
    The second one worked really well.
