Opposites: In and Out

opposites button

I am so seriously behind. The class is almost over and I'm only on days 3 and 4. I guess that's why they call it self paced :o)

Day 2 challenged you to take a picture inside using natural light.

We are very fortunate to have huge windows in the front of our house, that let in a ton of light. Some of my favorite pictures have been taken in these windows.

My current favorite is this one I took of Munch. I just love the face he's making. Just full of mischief and cuteness.

I also took this picture of Nox looking IN a box, OUTSIDE. He just LOVES pulling things out of boxes right now and I had to capture it.
Which brings us to day 4: Out. The trick is getting the perfect lighting. Sometimes the sun can cause some crazy shadows. Luckily we had a trip to the Dallas Arboretum planned and I got to snap a bunch of great pictures. Here are two of my favorites.

We ate lunch outdoors and by our table was a little grassy area to run around. There was a fantastic tree with branches that bent low to the ground. Munch had so much fun running around, under and OVER the branches. Here he is leaning over one of them.
Self portrait of Nox and myself. I love Nox's eyes in this picture. They just shine. AND it's always a plus when I can get him to look at the camera when I'm taking a picture.
Hopefully I'll have the rest of the days up soon!

Okay, that first picture of Lyndon is crazy adorable. I mean, I feel like I could just grab my monitor and give it a big squeeze and kiss it's so stinking cute!!! The others are all really good too, but that face Lyndon is making is down right irresistible!
