Impromptu Portraits

For those that might be interested, I took these this morning by sitting the kid on the kitchen table by the wall.  Set the shutter speed between 1/500th-1/640th of a second (the fast my flash will sync) and shot with my flash at it's lowest setting into the wall.  Varied the aperture to expose it properly (F11-F8), then made up the rest in the GIMP.

Even after

Even after all these years (it will be ten years married the end of July) she'll still kiss me on occasion.  

I need to share with you all how much my wife rocks.  She is a blogging machine (1016 posts as of today!), she truly cares for a lot of people - even when she says she doesn't, she cares for our kids and will relentlessly pursue what's best for them, she laughs at my stupid jokes (which is great evidence of long suffering).  I truly do love her.  Our life together has been an incredible ride, up and down and all over.  As we start on a new chapter of adventures there is no one else I'd rather have with me.
