Theme Thursday - Childhood

I really need to get better at my action shots. I just cannot get all the setting exactly right (not to mention I was lying inside the bounce house so that was tough) but one of these days I will get the shutter speed right so I get no blur. But in the mean time, this is what I have for today. I think these two shots of my older two playing in our yard show what childhood is all about.

There is nothing wrong with blur sometimes and that is the good blur.

Oh yeah, that looks like childhood! I agree with Melody, sometimes blur is okay. I shows action and they look to be active!

Those are fantastic!! Their faces are perfectly in focus and the slight blur of their limbs works beautifully to show their exuberance and motion.

Why did they not have those blow up jumpy things when I was a kid??? I really want to jump in one!

I agree blur is great! One of my favorite recent shots is of Zachary jumping in a puddle, it's totally blury but I love it :)

This is childhood in action!

Actually I think the first one in particular is just right! I like the little bit of blur and you definitely captured childhood!!! But I would have been totally freaking out that one of my kids would have landed on my camera the whole time! All my shots would have been cut off feet, heads, etc! ha. Good job!

These are adorable, and capture the spirit of childhood! I think the bit of blur just adds to the mood.

They are BEAUTIFUL! You NAILED the exposure on that first shot. And man what fun that looks like!

But the blur is what really shows the motion! I think they look great!

LOVE the bouncy house. We have one of those too. I call it bouncy house, my daughter calls it a 'jumpoline'. Its a great way to burn off thier energy! You captured them great.

The flounce on your daughter's skirt is great. You did good to get those focused.
