Our first proper sunny day...

First lovely day of the year gave us the chance to get our little Dylan out and about...

His first dandelion clock...I really wish I'd managed to get it all in focus!



...and his first buttercup...



He loves his new paddling pool...blowing bubbles!



We went out for a bit of "Daddy time" yesterday...



...and he's been given his first bit of camera tuition...it really doesn't work well if you dribble on it...



Daddy and Dylan were oblivious to it all...



He wasn't happy about being taken out of the paddly pool...



All in all it was a simply fabulous day...!

I've posted this in Foto Fair, but I'd be happy to take any comments on how I could improve, so please feel free to give advice if you can!

Janet

Re: Our first proper sunny day...

You have some really lovely natural shots there, Janet, and I know from experience just how difficult it is to achieve such results with the grandchildren. My favourite is the first buttercup and I also love the one in the grass with his daddy (with his blue cap).

Regards,
Ann1e

Re: Our first proper sunny day...

Thanks for that...it really was a rather special day for us...I'm just SO annoyed that I didn't get the sort of shots that I should have...I'm supposed to know what I'm doing, right?

It was lovely and sunny, but oh so contrasty...

...and you know what? Just for once I'm going to ignore all the rules...those were some really special photos for us...

Shots to be treasured there Janet.

The buttercup shot is superb.

Thanks for sharing.

Re: Our first proper sunny day...

You say you didn't get the shots you should have, but I can't see much wrong with these, I'd say it's a superb set. Yes, the light was contrasty (would you rather it had been dull? ) but you've handled it very well indeed. I suspect most photographers would be proud of these.
