Love beach shots.  We always try to hit the beach before sunset when we first get to California.  I also like it when mother nature provides a good frame.  These weren't modified but were taken with DSLR.

I've always liked the way Zeiss lenses render images.  They have a way of making the separation of foreground/background look almost 3-D. And the lens coatings produce a very natural palette of colors. The only problem is that they're really expensive.  New ones are usually over $1000, for one prime lens. Zooms are easily double that. I found an older Zeiss 50mm lens in excellent condition.  It was made before auto focus really caught on, so it's completely manual.  I got it for a screamin' deal, and with a $35 adapter, it's a gem on my camera.  I used it for some shots of Sarah-Grace this weekend for her seven month birthday.

My goodness! There's so many great photos here!

I'm just getting started personally. I mostly take pics with the phone and then mess around a little with filters and such (pixlr is a good app for that, and they also have a online site too! https://pixlr.com/express/) Here's one I took recently of a dignified old fellow in a local park. I did very little to it save a filter and some PS adjustments to get rid of the back end of a car in it.

Ten minutes from my house.  There's still snow another mile up the canyon.  That water is cold!!!

Sarah-Grace eating spaghetti for the first time.  We ate outside because, you know, garden hose.

I love the last picture! Give me some time and I just might come up with an appropriate caption - Or Not. What a treasure she is.

I got a new 85mm f/1.8 portrait lens. Samuel turned 8 and was baptized. The flowers around the Payson temple are all in bloom.  Seemed the perfect combination for a photo shoot!

Roper, he's a good-looking boy!  How fortunate he is to have such wonderful parents.

Sarah-Grace's nightly routine: Drink a sippy cup of milk then roll around on Mom and Dad's bed until 11 p.m.  Enjoy it while it lasts, little girl. When school starts, you're going to your own bed at 8:30.
