the Challenge, Days 15-20...

lookie there, two days in a row full of pictures! still trying to catch up on my challenge photos, so here goes the next few days:
this isn't exactly what a silhouette photo is suppose to look like, but i was on vacation people! it's not like i was spending all my time researching and practicing my backlighting skills. but you have to admit, this is a pretty cool shot...

once again, a technique i have no clue about. long exposure requires knowing how to actually use your camera and all it's possible settings. this shot just happened by chance, but it kind of looks right. anyway, at Disney, this is the one ride i will not ever ride, but the boys and GaGa sure did enjoy it...

at our house (or the beach) technology is every where! the kids have a slew of gaming equipment and we have more than enough iPods to keep multiple families entertained, but remember, we were on vacation, so you would think that finding that perfect technology shot would be a little more difficult, but at any given moment The Husband is on the phone or on the computer, because who doesn't work while on vacation...

shoes?! really?! if you haven't been to our house, then let me clue you in on something...we own more shoes than Imelda Marcos. our family has a problem, we like shoes (especially flip flops). so, this is probably one of my favorite shots that i've taken so far...

okay, this one has a fun story behind it. The Husband and I went to Boston (he had to work, i went for the food) for a few days while the kids stayed on "vacation". the first day we were there, after whale watching, many crab cakes, a big bowl of lobster bisque, and a couple beers, we made our way through the streets of Boston. i wasn't even planning on taking pictures, but this day just happened to be "something orange day", and this is what we came across. normally this giant boat on wheels is a tour bus that goes around the city full of tourists, but not that night. we just happened to walk up on a film crew in the middle of filming scenes for Ted (coming out in 2012)! you know we had to Google that as soon as one of the set crew told us what they were doing. it was actually kind of boring to watch, but still pretty cool...

once again, another darn technique i have no clue about! bokeh (pronounce it however you like) is the blurry little lights in the background of a picture. again, another trick you have to do with your camera, but easier to figure out than some of the other ones i've had to do. it is a shot that takes some planning, because for me i don't normally have little twinkly lights just put up around the house on a regular basis...
