ugh. Halloween is so yesterday. Isn’t it funny the way that happens? It was actually only four days ago and I already feel like it’s been months and months and WHY am I still talking about it?
Which is why I’m extra glad I took a few photos. I am having some guilt because I did not dress Eli up this year. I had planned to dress him but things became so chaotic between dinner and makeup and cleaning and costumes and neighbors waiting to trick-or-treat with us that I threw on a sling, grabbed a blanket, popped Eli in and we were on our way
And honestly, I don’t really care that I didn’t dress him (third child syndrome) but I guess I feel like I should care. Maybe that’s where my guilt comes from. Either way, I’ll save it for the therapist.
Here are my Halloween captures:
Anna was a wonderful witch and Noah was a very serious soldier.
And here’s the front of my home, this was taken loooong after dusk.
F 2.8 | SS 1/4 | ISO 400 (tripod)
On our way down to Indianapolis yesterday, we started out long before the sun rose. I had hoped for a great sunset because how often do you really get to watch a sunset? (by the way, if your answer is every single day, OMG, I am so sorry.) I was so lucky that the sun rose just in time for us to drive through the now infamous Wind Turbine Farm on Interstate 65. If you’re not familiar, it’s literally, what? Five miles of wind turbines…maybe thousands of them? Brian and I are fascinated with these, I know many people are freaked out by them, but we love seeing them in action.
These are my silence photos because these feel so peaceful to me.
F 2.8 | SS 1/50 | ISO 1600
Because I was in the car on a not entirely smooth road and I was also without a tripod, I didn’t want to turn down my shutter speed too low so I really had to pump up my ISO, which is why there is so much noise. But I’d rather have the noise than not have the photo. The above photo is SOOC.
This photo, I simply bumped up the saturation levels a bit.
Same settings as the photo above (but zoomed in a bit). See how it’s just a little bit more vibrant? Such an easy edit, too.
Now it’s your turn to share!
