The damn kids are getting too smart

NIKON D70 - 1/20 sec, f4.5 at 70mm

Recently I was regaled by Sarah about a small conflict between her and her mother.

Apparently at the supermarket the kids were allowed a muffin from the bakery. Sarah chose a chocolate muff. As Gabba picked it up, Sarah changed her mind. Unfortunately because Gabba had touched it with her hands, we had to buy it.

This caused Gabba to have a spaz at Sarah about making her mind up and the waste of money and spaz, spaz spaz, nag, nag, nag.

Sarah was smart (and quick) enough to point out that if Gabba had in fact used the tongs as she was supposed to, then there would be no issue with her changing her mind. She had Gabba fair and square. A perfect rebuttal.

I think I preferred it back when just yelling at the kids was enough. Now we have to reason with them.

The Photo

I so suck at photography right now. I've had 3 missions out to get photos where every single photo has been crap. Either my standards are too high or I'm going through a crisis of confidence. I don't know. Maybe I need to move somewhere else to find my place again. Anyways, it's a shell I found on the rocks at Palm Beach on waiheke Island.

  • I know what it is like to struggle with photos! I too am having a crisis of sorts with taking pictures. Currently I'm attending the Univ of Manitoba as a photo major and I tell you, these days it seems I haven't got a single ounce of inspiration or idea. It's causing me to panic a little and question why I'm doing this and yadda yadda. I'm just hoping if I survive that I will be stronger and better in the end. Your photos are great...I think you'll be fine. Cheers!
