Weekend Photo Safari

I've been trying to juggle my one year old, my love of blogging, and the Blog With Pip Course I'm currently doing. It's tough to find the time to do those last two because my little guy comes first. One of the assignments we have been given in our course is to do a photo safari. I love taking photos on my proper camera, not just my iPhone. I haven't done it in awhile. This assignment was a fun challenge because it bundled my one year old, photography and my blog, and getting an assignment done all in one.
 We headed out to bar beach for a family picnic. Charlie took off on me while I was eating so I got my long range lens out to capture him in the clover.

 Another shot I captured from far away of Charlie approaching a friendly dog.

 I love these beach flowers! This busy bee had a very large amount of pollen on it's belly.

These two had so much fun together chasing seagulls. They completely exhausted themselves.


We then went for a walk and I caught this surfer

 My little guy finishing his dinner, and NO he is not supposed to be standing in his highchair. Please note his first painting is framed above him.

The joys of living on a main road, fast cars. You can't tell but the moon was actually amazing and full when I took this after dusk.
