Photographing Lyla at the park

// November 5th, 2009 // family, photography

On Sunday afternoon, the Cardinals were losing badly, I was bored of football (I know, amazing right!!?!), Jina was off having some much deserved alone time…so I gathered up Lyla and headed out to the park.

I wanted to put her on the swings and let her have a good time, and of course I dragged along the camera. I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do when I got there, but I saw some boys playing basketball and had an idea.

Right next to the basketball court is an empty slab of concrete where I assume they meant to expand someday. I took Lyla over there and just let her wander around. She took some interest in the boys playing basketball, as you can see below, but also just enjoyed exploring on her own in a new place.

I hope you enjoy these…I am so very proud of all of them, especially the first one and the last one.  I have a long, long ways to go, but I feel like I’m getting the idea when it comes to composing a good photo. That seems easier with kids or people than with inanimate objects right now, but I can truly see some growth in my abilities.
