Joy is a trip to the park. My kids are at the age where all you need to be happy are a slide, a swing and lots of space to run. We went to the little park around the block from our house today and they got all of these things. My daughter was mad at me because I wouldn't let her 2 year old butt climb to the top of the 12 foot tall slide by herself. I should have never let her watch Xena yesterday. She was dangerous enough without having a new idol.
I turned the camera to "monochromatic" half way through the park visit. I don't know why exactly - I guess I thought it might make me think a bit differently about the picture making process. There was a lot of green grass and blue sky. Did I just say that as if it were a bad thing?
Update: I have just realized how true the top image is - my son standing in the sunlight and my daughter moving in the shadows. Hmmmm...
