This week has been an especially crazy week for me. Mostly because I’ve been stressed over finishing our costumes for Halloween. How is it October 31st is this upcoming Monday?? I really should have thought about that little fact before I went and rented this lens for the week.
But since I already had it I needed to be able to try it out and play with it as much as I could. This time I lugged all 3 kids up our hill. Yes I’m counting the lens as one extra kid. It’s almost as big as Jack-Jack.
I did get some sunshine in between the breaks in the rolling fog as it set but that actually made shooting much more difficult since I was constantly having to adjust my settings to compensate in the change of light every few minutes
We walked up the hill toward the top but didn’t make it all the way since the wind picked up. And my little officer decided to use his sister as pretend target practice with his gun/ninja sword. *sigh* This really is a very accurate glimpse into my daily life as their mother.
My son has been back on his police officer kick lately. So many of my recent posts show him in some variation of his uniform. This particular jacket he’s wearing I’ve missed alot. I made it for him a couple of years ago with actual SFPD patches sewn onto the sleeves and I even ironed on Chief on the front and Police on its back. He used it so much back then but this is the first time I’ve seen it in over a year. I’m happy he’s still getting some use out of it before he finally outgrows it
Anyway since the wind had started picking up we headed back down to our “Amber Pattern” we’d found last time we were here. We got a little more shelter from the wind here so I let the little one figure out the rocks around her while my oldest walked the pattern
We stayed up on the hill for about 20 mins or so. The constant changing of light was starting to annoy me. I also had a pot roast waiting on us at home so I propped them up for one last brother-sister shot (which they grudgingly obliged to) and we headed home
I’m praying we’ll get one more clear and pretty sunset before I return this bad boy lens!
