Blog Hop – Favorite Kid Photo 7/28/2009

Welcome all you Blog Hoppers to my This Desert Life {in pictures} blog!

I hope that you are enjoying your time in the blogosphere.

If you’re part of the Blog Hop then you already know that this week’s Theme is Favorite Kid Photo.  I have to say it was hard to choose a photograph that I have not already displayed here on my blog.  If you look around a bit, you will see that I love Photography with a capitol P.  You can see some on my work displayed here in this post.

One of my goals with my blog besides sharing my life in the desert is to help others learn how to take better photographs.  Just the other day I wrote a post on Summer Vacation – Telling Your Story.  Here are some other helpful photography tips as well in this post.

Without further delay, may I present one of my favorite photographs.  This is my son CJ and that’s his daddy holding him when he was about 6 weeks old.  We went camping in Joshua Tree National Park for the weekend with my cousin and her family.  Naturally with a baby we we’re the first ones up and I just happened to have my film camera in hand when CJ displayed this wonderful smile no I don’t believe it was gas.

Well I am off to do some Blog Hopping of my own now.  Don’t forget to leave a comment as I will be leaving many a comment for all the other blogs I visit on this week’s Blog Hop.  And if you’re not already part of the fun, there is no better time than now to start having some fun.

Monochrome Weekly

As I was completing my Blog Rounds man I feel like a doctor saying that I came across a pretty cool Themed Blog.  Naturally it was about photography which I absolutely love but this one is just for monochromed pictures.  As soon as I saw this I thought of some of the pictures I took this past Sunday at Joshua Tree National Park.  So for those of you visiting from Monochrome Weekly, I welcome you.  And for those you are not you are most welcome as well this is a perfect time to get in on the action.

Caught in the Web

Caught in the Web

As I was driving along the road in JTNP one morning, a series of webs caught the early morning sunlight just right and garnered my attention.  I spent the next 30 minutes or so photographing these strange webs crawling wth ladybugs and a caterpilar inside this web.  Children can be amused for hours with a simply box.  Give me a camera and something unusually and I will be just as entertained!
