Cyanotype
Cyanotype

At a class that I went to last week, I learned that Monochromatic photography does not just mean black and white. Black and white, sepia and cyanotype all are different ways to print a monochromatic (one hue) photograph.

Wanting to see the difference, I edited this tree picture so I could compare. I am amazed at how each photograph has such a different “feel” to it.

Photoshoot-Mark

Mark and Megan Mark by tree I needed some nice pictures of Mark. He is growing and changing so quickly, that I am having trouble keeping up.

Since August, he has outgrown me, changed his voice and can out eat me (and Allan) for any meal.  I have heard many rumors that this is only the beginning!

Because of this, I rarely can get the camera to see what I see.  But while we were playing at the park, Mark’s personality was really showing through.  I loved how he kept playing and exploring, but taking quick breaks to look at me for a picture. I treasure the times he discovers something exciting and still yells for me to come look.

Mark on logI am so fortunate to have the privilege of watching Mark grow. I am thankful that he can learn at home so I have extra time to watch him change and mature.  God has a wonderful plan for Mark, and I am loving being a part of it.

 

 

 

Mark

Mark.bwMark and I had a “date” while the other kids had Science Sleuths at Oxbow today.  Megan was with us being “princess” but she had to follow us around and do what Mark wanted to do.  Mark is the prince, and princesses follow their princes around :).  She did a good job most of the time.

Mark discovered a new path. He wanted to go by the water, and he found some steps that I have never been down.  We found some neat places to explore and Mark found what we think are snow fleas.  He also found the bones of a buck in the water!  Very neat, but sort of gross too.

While he played, I took pictures of him and Megan. I have more nice ones of him, but I think this is my favorite.
