Audrey and my father

I have been shooting with a point-and-shoot camera for so long now that I’d forgotten just how amazing better cameras can be. My new camera has a spot metering mode, which allows me to pick a very small area of my subject and adjust the camera settings so that the area is correctly exposed. I […]

We spent the day at Chippokes Plantation State Park doing one of our new favorite activities: hunting for fossils! I’ll write a longer post soon about this amazing Virginia state park, but, as you can see from the photo, we had a very successful day.

Audrey stuck around after her skateboarding lesson to show off-- and wiggle!

Booty wiggle!

Kindness of a stranger

Audrey and I took a walk on the Greensprings Interpretive Trail in Williamsburg, Virginia, today. As we were starting we met a jogger, who encouraged us on despite the threatening skies, telling Audrey about all of the animals she might see.
