Monday Randomness

i really enjoyed having a beautiful basket to carry with us this apple picking season, made for a great prop in images & it just made the
experience all the more fun... i am using the apples for {Macro Monday} at Lisa's Chaos & i'm also using them to enter into
Pastor Girl's Ponderings Photo Challenge {Color}

and this is the face i generally get when i ask my loving beans to say "cheese!" {i'm sure y'all are familiar with the look or maybe not...
 maybe your babes are always sweet smiling angels...**insert your laugh here**} but seriously the view from atop the hill
is just breath-taking, grouchy face or not ;)

beep beep WHAT!!! and here is me... running, in all my glory at the orchard, trying very hard to capture this image & finally {after a much
losing battle with my remote, beep beep needs new battery} i did achieve {well sort of} the image i was going for & i am quite in love with it,
puts such a smile to my face. point in sharing this take, sometimes the first, second, tenth... nine hundredth frame may not work but keep
trying you will eventually achieve the image you are going for & you might even catch a funny moment or two along the way :)
ps~ it took about 15 to 20 shoots to achieve what i wanted or maybe we just gave up :-P
taking all your own family images is an art unto itself, my remote & tripod are my best friends!!!

theme this week for beep beep click is {lost} i think i was quite
{lost} on the timing trying to capture our kissy silhouette shot.

while soaking up the all encompassing views on our way back to the car on saturday i couldn't help but notice a tiny spec
floating between the mountain peaks in the distance... then before i knew it there were two... three... then four... hot air balloons!
so while in awe of my own stunning {view from above}, i too was jealous in awe of their extraordinary {view from above}!
the boys just loved watching 'em float about ♥

this week's theme for Show'n Tell
at Paper♥Camera is {View From Above}

silly moments & stunning sunsets or something just as happy!!!
