AndiGail goes to the Library on a Dreary, Icy Day

Post by Charles Haacker » Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:58 pm

Here in Lincoln, Nebraska, we didn't get anything like the ice storms that have occurred elsewhere, but we got enough that the city asked folks to stay home, but cooping up a 2-1/2 year old is not cool, so we all went to the "liberry." It gave Grumpa a photo op to really work over the new Sony A6000, which I thought performed well.

Best thing about this is the expression.

puzzled is great! the last two Reading on the floor images are fun and alive - I enjoyed every one of your shots. Good job guys, libraries are wonderful and not seen often enough.

All are done exceptionally well Chuck !!! Images for everyone to cherish for many years. My personal favorite is the one of her in the rocker. Too cute, Grumpa. Got a chuckle out of that line Chuck !!!

I love your images, Chuck, but your light hearted narratives really brings it all together. A wonderful series. Her expression with the puzzle is pure gold.

A treasure chest, Chuck. For the untitled ones on the floor: "Floored." Too obvious? Superb work. Stunning model. Matt

Thank you, Piet. This is a family of readers. My DIL has so many books it is said that the load of her bookcases threatened the floor joists beneath her bedroom in the house where she grew up.

Thank you, Dave, and Grumpa loves that rocker shot, too!

Thanks, Linda. I hope when the weather begins to improve that I can get more practice with it. It's not exactly like any camera I have ever used but I am very glad I went mirrorless.

Thank you, Duck, and I love that one as well. Daphne and I were both thespians in our callow youth. She majored in theater arts and we met doing community theater. Judging by the rubber face the granddaughter may have the drama bug. Worse things, I guess.

Thanks, Matt. Maybe I'll go back and title those. I couldn't think for anything that worked, but "floored" works. (Y)

It's hard to pick a favorite so I'll pick them all! What a wonderful adventure! S-
