Focus!

I'm going to attempt to wrap up the entire month of June in two posts.  This one, and another one hopefully to be posted later this week.  I've fallen so terribly behind in everything fun.  It also spurred a decision of sorts this weekend that I *need* to take a step back and remember why I got (back) into photography in the first place, and the fun of blogging.  I want to explore some new subjects, challenge myself to learn, and just have fun with it. I already tried out a couple of things - fireworks and macros - that I'll post more of soon.

In the meantime, I finally got around to editing the pictures from Evan's birthday party.  As usual, he was a total rock star.

"Is that cake?  See this phone I have?  You can have it back when you give me cake!"

He not only refrains from tearing into the gifts until given the okay, he stops and poses for pictures.

Smarties!!  This is especially significant as this was his first ever gift from blogger fans.  Thank you, RaeJean and family!  Evan's handling his superstar status well.

Negotiating the release of the jelly beans.  He went right to the birthday cash and forked it over.  I need to talk to this kid about financial responsibility.
