You Capture - Free For All!!


It's getting colder here - it's November, but today my kiddos decided to brave the crisp end-of-autumn air and play out for half the afternoon in 'the field' - which they have now trodden down to a carpet of dying ferns and erected a make-shift football goal at one side of (cross-bar pending). The colours were lovely and the light was soft, so I took my cue! And for once they were all willing to be photographed. I like what I got, but I continue to be frustrated by my camera's dislike of low light and slow focusing speed. So many of those I took today were missed by an 'nth and it is frustrating! They were just that touch out of focus instead of crisp & sharp how I like them to be, and how they were coming out in the summer. I'm sure it's not me - least I hope it's not - it just seems so much harder to get that perfect shot now the light is so much dimmer :(


Anyway, here's today's best;





I am impressed with how my 21C children, who so much of the time are obsessed with their techno' lifestyle, can go out into a field full of ferns and instantly create houses, a dance/music studio (complete with 'stick' microphones!), a football pitch and and enough game-play to last an entire afternoon - until the rain came :D








...And my attempt at some sporty shots!!



Now over to see what everyone else has captured this week over on Beth's Blog :D

Lovely pictures and phrasiology (if that's how it should be spelled) similar to my Blog!

Those are great! I like the one with the leaves all around his face.

And it just goes to show that kids will be kids, no matter the era.

These are gorgeous shots! I know what you mean about getting that "crisp" look, I'm frustrated with it too. Such a wonderful job capturing youth and fall!
