Don't shoot if it doesn't excite you.

I got these two pictures at the First Friday Art Trail. My favorite event in Lubbock.

pre-banquet shave: f/4, 1/160, iso 400, 105 mm

f/4, 1/160, iso 400 , 84mm

First, if you are sick and tired of seeing too much of Norman here I'm sorry.  He's my only steadily available model. But, I really like this shaving picture. I think I finally got a natural looking shot of Norman. As I'm getting out of my slump, I'm trying to take photos every single day, and I think I want to make some pictures of immediate & familiar surroundings.

Swing shot

f/5.6, 1/125, iso 100

I took this picture of my friend's  (Cathy Morton) grandson playing on the swing. I can't remember the boy's name. I was doing my solitary walk around the hood again, and they happened to be out on the swings. I think it's been about 2 weeks since I took my photo hiatus, and boy, did I feel like I forgot how to use my camera. By the way, swings are a good setting to practice motion shots, I learned.
This is the best shot I got. Back to practice.
