January Contrast

This week we had several warm days that sent us outside to play, wearing short sleeves and (me) flip-flops. Quite a contrast to our normal January weather.


I just love taking picture outside. The light is always perfect and bright, the colors are rich, and my subjects are usually content to ignore me and my camera. The only downside about photographing in January is there are no pretty flowers or plants to take pictures of.


See more contrast themed photos over at The Land of K.A.



P.S. It's also official delurking day! leave a comment and let me know you're reading! I'll be trying to comment as much as I can today to let you know I'm reading your blogs, too!

Excellent contrast idea! It's been so warm here, too. No coats for us this week!

Pretty photos :-)

Yes, that warm weather definitely is in contrast to January! Looks like the kids were enjoying the weather, though. Great shots and I love her piggy tails!

Stacy said...

Hello! Those outdoor pictures are great. Im jealous of your good camera though because you can get good pictures indoors too, where me and my NON slr cant really.

I love the header picture of the static-y hair. Too cute.

Love the photos. It's nice that you could get outdoors.

Oh they are so nice - love all the photos of those cuties.

I envy you - we got another 6 inches of snow lastnight to top up the 7 inches we got the day before.... :( Not a fan of cold weather - can you tell? LOL.

Maggie said...

So cute! And I agree, a great contrast from the normal winter weather...although unfortunately ours has returned already. They sure look happy to get some outside time!

And Happy Delurking Day!
