A Camera in Her Hands

Focusing on the shot!
When I saw the look on her face, with a camera in her hands, I recognized the feeling immediately. She was lost in another world.

I am never going to get my camera back, am I?

At ease with a camera in her hands
It was clear from the start that she was completely at ease with a camera in her hands, almost as if it were a part of her.

For the next several hours, I never saw her without the camera in front of her face, concentrating on the world through her lens.

Looking for another shot.
Unless of course, she was walking away, looking for the next shot.

Focusing on yet another shot.
Since I already had 347 shots of the back of her head, I thought I might as well wander off and find a shot of my own. (I figured she had to run out of memory or battery power sooner or later.)

Creek is doing some flooding.
I grabbed a quick shot of some of our flooding around here. I love the way the creek drops off, making a miniature waterfall. One of these days I will get better at water shots, but it sure aint gonna be today.

And then she smiles for me!
All of the sudden, the kid decides to grace me with a look at her face and a cute lil grin. What did I do to deserve it? I’m a great mom?

Nope! She was about out of natural light and battery power. 🙂

You won’t be seeing the pictures Haley takes here on my blog. She wants her own domain to post pictures and stuff she writes.

How did I know that was going to happen?
