Annabelle's View

This week both Mark and I are sick.  Ugh, I feel awful!  Head cold with sore throat, runny nose, body aches, fluctuating body temps, the whole 9 yards.  So because of this Annabelle has been kinda on her own, playing by herself while I lay hacking on the couch near by.  Monday I was feeling so-so.  We spent most of the evening outside.  Annabelle was running around the backyard playing while I read a book in the hammock swing.  I had the camera out with us, though I honestly don't remember why, and Annabelle decided she needed to use it.  Here is our backyard from Annabelle's perspective.

Self portrait

Our pool and fun noodles

The neighbors pool

One of our pine trees

The sand box and hammock swing.  I love the lighting!

A ball on the picnic table

Her shoe

Some sort of artsy shot.  A clover on her playhouse.

Mom, show me your book and smile!

The playhouse and swing set in the background.
Overall I was impressed with her shots.  Last year they would have all been close ups grass or my bum.  She's starting to get the hang of how to see what you want to shoot in the view finder.  I'd give her an A+.


  1. Oh, sorry you are so sick! I love her sweet pictures. My girls like to take pictures too, but they usually don't turn out so well.

    The self portrait Annabelle took of herself is my favorite. You can tell from her eyes just how much fun she's having. :)

  2. Thanks for stopping by! Annabelle is an artsy, crafty kind of girl and photography is something she's starting to get into lately. She really was having fun taking pictures and commenting while she was doing it!

  3. haha her shoes! I love that!

  4. She may be only 5 but she has almost as many pairs of shoes as I do!
