I promise that this is the last of my vacation posts! I'm like that person in the 70's that made you come to my house and sit through slideshow of my trip. Thankfully you could walk away from this any time you'd like! Over the past few years I've been using the manual mode on my camera more and more and am definitely enjoying it. Thanks to digital film I can experiment and get creative without worrying about running out of film; it's definitely becoming even more of a passion than it already was. But enough about me... let's check out the favorites from our family trip, shall we? All of these are straight out of the camera with no after-effects or edits:
|Not really a favorite, but I snapped this through our windshield because I loved all of the brightly colored beach houses. One of these days we'll stay in one.|
|Seriously the sweetest face on the planet. And one of my favorite pictures of her to date.|
|"Mommy, I see you!" - A little fun with aperture (a fancy photog setting)|
|And fun with shutter speeds. The dude LOVED the carnival rides. He's my little daredevil.|
|My #1 favorite from the trip. Love that proud daddy in the background.|
And a big BIG thanks to this family for really making all of this happen for us. The Doran family opened their doors to us and went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. If you are anywhere near the Wilmington area you need to check out their church, Refuge City. They are fellow church planters and the love that they showed us really just flows through that whole place. It was one of the best services I have been to anywhere and they are six months old. Thank you for making this one truly memorable and perfect week! We love you guys!
Now... 350 more days until the next summer vacation. Insert the world's biggest sigh.
