Just Us and Our Shadows...

This post over at Candid Reflections cracked me up, put a smile on my face, and inspired these muscle-boy shadow pictures at the beach this weekend.

Two of the reasons I married the Big Dude 15 years ago:
he made me laugh and he had a great sense of adventure.
Now, not only does he make me laugh, but he makes the boys laugh, too.
And he still has a great sense of adventure. :-)

You have quite an eye for natural beauty! I find myself short on words to describe how much I love your photography!!!!

Rhea said...

Let me count the ways I envy your photography talent. Your eye for photos. You rock! Those pictures are so much fun.

And, I'll never forget falling for your husband's remark about those darn fields...

I like that you got up high for that first picture, it made it much more dynamic. My husband made me laugh too, its a good quality with someone you'll be spending the rest of your life with!

BEAUTIFUL! I've been a blog reader for awhile now....and I downloaded the "free" version of Foto Fusion. Is this what you're using to create your layouts? I noticed the "free version" watermark is gone....did you purchase the software? Recommendations?

Too fun! Always great to get the whole family involved in some image making! Yet another great start to my day.

SKELLER said...

Thank you! It was a great afternoon at the beach, and the tide was so cooperative in smoothing out the sand for us ;-)

Rhea - hehe. Stick Farm was clever, indeed...

Kirsten - yes, I bought the middle version of the software. I played with the demo version for a couple months first to make sure it was something I'd actually use. I do use and love it :-)

Fx - glad to be of service :-). Have a great day!
