This week..

This week ...

I got to meet this gorgeous blogger!! Kylie from Mealy and I... we did coffee then checked out an Op shop! Can't wait to catch up again soon!! As with all my bloggy meet ups so far it was so comfortable and easy.

visited Brisbane city, my favourite city!
My Mstr 8 took this photo, on my poxy little snapshot camera, and its a WAY better photo than I took on my DSLR!!
Actually he took 107 photos in about 1 hour... I was severely lacking at only 87 photos all day.... some of his looked like this

most of mine looked like this...
out of focus.. because I tried to use Manual settings, instead of AUTO (my personal favourite!!lol)

I also got to do this during the week.... make another rainbow cake for Miss E's teacher...
It was World Teachers Day.....
The other kids teachers got a special cupcake...
Totally dodgy picture taking, on the car dashboard, with construction in the background and rain on the windscreen.  I hope her teacher didn't look to closely at the words on the heart.... I obviously didn't!! 'murder, burglary' eek!

And the kids wore their bandanas... for Canteen
boy I have cute kids.... just saying...haha.

Linking up with Paisley Jades Loving.... a few days late but I made it!

YAY to new bloggy friends. Such a shame that we are moving so soon. Camera tip from me. Pop it onto P (has canon have that???) you then have control over the flash and point of focus. See you soon.

Looks like you had fun!

My tip for the photos is not to jump from Auto straight into Manual mode. Try putting it on Av first - you set the aperture (F8 is a good one for walking round a city to get adequate depth of field) and the camera works out the shutter speed etc... Gets you used to thinking about one of the elements that you need for manual mode without having to get all of them right and potentially messing up your holiday snaps! I stayed on Av for a quite a while until I got confident enough for manual.

It's lovely meeting bloggers IRL and connecting straight away..I have been fortunate to have made friends with a few of our local girls.

Faith said...

Your kids certainly are cute!

I love how kids with a camera just go crazy and take loads....much better now we're digital rather than spending out on developing the film only to find lots of photos of their feet etc...

Your cakes look amazing, how lucky for the teachers to receive those!
