Portraits and A Door

 Told you I'd post soon:) These are from the good ol' days of 2012! Fall is the best time for portraits isn't it? The photos below are some of my favorites!

Little brother and sister were kind enough to let my order them around for a while. Ha, who am I kidding, I tell them what to do anyways:) No seriously, they were excellent posers for me!

The colors complement each other and add a lot to the composition, I had to use a fast shutter speed 'cause she was swinging pretty fast:)

This is at Itasca State Park. There are beautiful spots for pictures everywhere! J has his favorite Webkinz: Bucky:)

"Study Buddies"

I tried to line the trees up so it would go together seamlessly and look poetic:)
("Poetic" looks like "pathetic" out of the corner of my eye, haha)

I really like this last one, which I have done something rare to: I named it!
Wait! This post is named "Portraits and A Door." So, where's the door, huh? This is for FMTSO! Yay! Oh right, here it is!
             I really like this door, saw it while Geo-Caching with my grandparents last summer. It is old and cool and dilapidated (whoo I spelled it right!) and mossy!                  
That be - ith all for now ye kindred spirits!  
PS: I updated this and added a few more photos I forgot.

Love, love, love this post!
Autumn light, younger siblings, swings, that awesome angle on the tree trunk at Itasca Park, (I used to have a bunch a' webkins too!)
That neat line of pine trees, and "study buddies" I don't usually name my pictures either...but that is a good one. =)
That light and color in the first one, just lovely. I feel like I could almost be there.
Oh, and this door, that moss on the roof wouldn't be the same moss that you contrasted with the blue sky in another post would it? It looks like it.
Woo hoo for spelling dilapidated right! =D

Wow you are well on your way to being a superb photographer. Love the ones of the children. The last one gives me a feeling of nostalgia as I grew up in the country.

What a great door, made for photography! I like your portraits, too.

Hi Eli, welcome back! I thought you had stopped blogging. I'm following you again. Lovely portraits, I especially like the swing shot and study buddies. The door is cool, and your writing is cheerful xx :)

It kind of looks like a ghost inside that door the way the sunlight hits it.

Eli said...

To Jenny: You're right, that is the same building:)

Wonderful work! I LOVE the first three shots - the colors and light are just perfect! And I can definitely tell that you have a great eye from all your creative angles. =) Keep it up!
