Weekly Winners: January 25-31

Before we get to my Weekly Winners for this week, I just want to remind you that my very special giveaway closes at 11:59 p.m. tonight. Have you entered? Go! Do it! My photos will be here when you get back ...

Ok, moving on ...


This week, the Roo-girl and I took a little trip to a local shopping center, which has a little park. I had been planning for DAYS to shoot the absolutely gorgeous roses that were blooming there, and we finally got a chance to go.

With camera in hand, and great anticipation, I rounded the corner to find ...

They had pruned the roses back to their nubs. So no flowers for me this week.

Therefore I had to take a different direction. And here's that direction:

Lantern:


TALL fountain:



Deep in thought:


After that, I apparently got all black-and-white and sepia'ish. I didn't realize how many of my photos I had sucked the color out of until I uploaded them all and started captioning them. Heh.

Teenage girl piggies:

This one is for Lotus. This is what happens when baby toes grow up, hon!

I think, therefore I am:


Remembering when my children small:

Just to clarify: That is NOT an old picture of any of my children.
It is a stray (and suitably unidentifiable) child at the park, photographed this week.


Abandoned:

... I have put away childish things.

Go --->here<--- for more weekly winners ... and go -->here<-- to enter my giveaway. Quick! What are you waiting for? It ends tonight!

Bummer about the roses. I like the child on the swing one, because it brings me back. Mine are younger than Roo girl, but they still feel they're too old. Sigh.

Why do kids have to grow? Growing gets a big "wtf." BIIIG wtf.

These are wonderful! I love the fountains & the b&w of your daughter

texasholly said...

Oh your toddler is so cute!

Just kidding, I totally get that you are photographing random children at the park which if I didn't know you would be a bit creepy. Next thing you know you will be posting those random children's pictures on the internet...oh crap. You did. Nevermind.

Nice pictures. Really.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Love the black and white shots. The deep in thought was my favorite.

Rachel said...

Bummer about the roses :-(

I love those shots of Roo Girl though. Toe and feet shots are wonderful, aren't they?!

Great shots!!

Punk Rock Mom said...

sepia-ish. great word. I so going to use it. Sorry to hear about the roses, but the photos you did take are great!

Jennifer said...

I love the picture of the child on the swing.

I was wondering what happened to sweet baby feet.

Smoochiefrog said...

Nice shots! Sorry they pruned the roses. Silly gardeners.

Daisy said...

She still lets you photograph her? I'm impressed!

Devoted Mama said...

Awesome set this week, as always :) My faves are tall fountain & deep in thought.

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

lovely shots this week

Qweenie said...

I love the sepia ones! Which is not to say I don't like the others...I do! I just like the sepia ones best..

Jennie said...

The pictures of the teenage piggies is wonderful. Those little baby toes grow up quick don't they. If only they didn't stink to high heaven in the process!

Corina - Down to Earth Mama said...

These photos are fantastic. I simply LOVE the last four. Great job!

Janet said...

Great pictures! So their toes are always "baby toes" to their mamas. I knew it.

Nap Warden said...

The black and whites are fabulous!

Tink said...

The "Deep In Thought" photo is wonderful! I love the angle and the lighting. Of course it helps to have such a cute subject too. ;)

Colleen - Mommy Always Wins said...

Teenage piggies are still cute piggies!

Karen said...

Teenage girls are never fully grown up. My nearly 14 year old girl just made herself a necklace out of buttons and paper clips. She's the hit of her peers today.

Momisodes said...

Oh! I wish my daughter's piggies would stay tiny forever :(

I love how artistic these shots were. Very nice B/W's

Jaina said...

Those shots are fantastic. I love the sepia ones especially :)

Janet said...

Those last two made me sad. And what a disappointment for the roses to be pruned!
