Evening Walk

The weather here in small town Missouri has been lovely as of late and we’ve been spending more time outdoors.

I took my girls for a walk yesterday as the sun began to set.

They goofed around…

Picked a few flowers…

Found a critter or two…

Explored their surroundings…

And marveled over the beauty of spring…

    Love all those pictures! We have also been enjoying beautiful spring weather, just not the last two days. I'm having a nice time with my mom, who is visiting from Germany.

    I love those little white flowers. I remember seeing them all over Missouri when we were there last year.

    I love all your pictures as usual. But what I really adore is the black and white polka dot dress with the pink and white polka-dot pants! :) Pretty!

    How fun! I love going for walks with my kids, even though we don't have many fun fields full of daisies to roam through!

    I am loving your new layout! And I am loving the photos! I really miss the changing of the seasons, since it seems to only ever be Summer, Summer, Summer and Fall down here in Phoenix.

    WOW! Your baby is growing up and so beautifully too!! I really need to stop by more often.

    Those are truly wonderful photos! No wonder Tamron USA chose to feature you; it is not about using their lens, but to show how great you are as a photographer.

    Beautiful girls, beautiful field of flowers!

    Thanks for the comment on my WW post! The Lensbaby 80 is a little too new, and I need to take it out in different conditions, before I can make a final decision. I like the flatness of the lens (I have a different LB I use with a Nikon 50mm and have some real good pics from it), but since my main cameras are Olympus micro 4/3 format, this optic ends up being a 160mm prime – pretty much into telephoto territory. I may have to pull out the old 5D and see how it works on a full frame camera.

    I would say, pull out the Lensbaby and try it again! being a manual focus lens with some interesting effects can be frustrating, but I have learned to like the quirkiness of the lens (and, when my vision was all wonky several years ago, the LB actually let me show others how I was seeing things!) BTW, that bottom photo, it would probably make a very interesting shot for a Lensbaby (using either the Edge 80 optic or even the regular double-glass one.)

    Happy WW!

    Wonderful pictures!! I love sunset walks with my boys. They just don't happen enough as dinner and getting ready for work the next day seems to take over our evenings. Before we know it it's 8:00 pm and time to get them into bed. The few times I saw screw the routine I get some lovely pictures of them at sunset and it just makes me smile. Happy Wednesday!! I believe I saw you were going to BBC Philly?! If so I'm really looking forward to meeting you!!!

    You make me miss Missouri fields. I went to Mizzou for graduate school, then came back to teach.

    What gorgeous photos! The field shots are stunning. I need to have a look at this week's photo challenge theme. I don't know if I can swing it by Friday, but I'll try. Feeling really overwhelmed at the moment with nasty cold.

    BTW...I love your new layout. Very spring!

    Looks like morning walks to me :) Yeah, it's fun to have bonding moments together with the people you love the most, be it on daytimes, noon and in the evening. As long as you're with them, you'll surely have a great time.
