I've been trying to figure out this "backlighting" thing in photography. I am far from understanding the details on this one, but I did catch a picture of Parker that I like. Don't mind the extra borders on the top and bottom; it is an example of me using no judgement...

Two Things...

First of all, here is a picture I took of Landon a few weeks ago...I'm messing with Photoshop again, trying some new things:

Secondly, you need to go read the story on this blog. I'm not going to say any more about it other than to tell you to find the start of the story and read whatever parts you read in chronological order. It is pretty amazing. You'll find Audrey's story here:

The Sandbox

It is hard to resist a girl who says, "Dad, let's pay in da sandbox!"...

The Wizard of Oz...

Parker finally had his debut in theater as one of the Flying Monkeys in Baum's the Wizard of Oz. He delivered his lines {"Seize her!" and "Now we have them! Take them to the castle!") with such poise, grace, and verve; the audience was mesmerized and spell bound.

We're proud of him...

Here is a shot of Parker and Maddie during the after-show bash...(I've been working on b/w conversions, but still like color as well...can't choose)

The Mullett... still coming. You'd think that with a little extra time to due General Conference, I"d be able to get this gem scanned. Nope.

Instead, I've worked on editing tips and tricks I'm picking up. We were at J's dad's birthday celebration and I caught two great pictures: one of Landon and one of baby K*. Yes, there are color pictures available, but I'm working on creating B/W conversions of pictures that also look great in color. For some reason, pictures that are just "desaturated" seem a little flat. So, messing with the channel mixer helps a little, though it is still a bit of a guessing game for me. I'm working on downloading some "actions" that have B/W conversions built right in. So, here are the B/Ws (be sure to click on each picture for a more detailed look):
