This is starting to get a little discouraging. Just having a point and shoot limits what I can do and I feel like I am not getting enough practice. The only time I am able to try and take photos is at night once we finally get Kennedy to bed, and there is only so much in this dark house I can try to take photos of. Not to mention since I do not want to use the flash anything I try and photograph comes out so dark and I can't do anything about it.  I am really hoping I can get my new camera in the next couple of months, I really can't wait.  I am also very excited to head to Boston in a couple weeks, it will be a nice change of pace and hopefully break me out of this rut.  There is always such great stuff to photograph there and it gets me so inspired. But I must say I am more than a little worried about the flight- traveling with a dog and a baby just sounds terrifiying!

Last night Ron got a little taste of what I have been dealing with all day long the last couple of weeks.  He was home alone with Kennedy for a few hours while she was being super fussy. He tried for over an hour to get her to sleep and finally she passed out on the couch with him. He was so happy for her to finally sleep that he didn't move for over an hour, just so he wouldn't wake her up. We eventually moved her to the crib, were she slept for about an hour, then of course, was up all night with me!

  1. I know exactly how you feel about using a P&S! That is what I am currently using as well and it nearly makes me cry when the picture could be stepped up a million notches if it had just been taken by a better quality camera. I keep telling myself that it is nice though to be solely focusing on composition since there isn't much else I can change. Good luck on your flight to Boston! I look forward to your photos of the trip.
