Me and Mine {October family portrait}

October 31, 2013 at 11:02 pm 6 comments

Another month has passed and I finally got the tripod out yesterday in an attempt to ‘set up’ a family portrait for our October Me and Mine.  I got a lovely picture of me and E diving onto the sofa as we tested out our timer settings and then E managed to bump his head within seconds of sitting on Daddy’s lap so plans were aborted.
Tears soon forgotten when we started playing with photo booth instead …Photo booth Collage
A crazy amount of portraits from a crazy amount of fun…

Happy tears a plenty by the end. E even made his own little video…

    I love the crazy photos, they look like so much fun and I’m glad the tears were soon forgotten!

    Hahaha. Photo booth is so much fun isn’t it? My little man has recently worked out how to open up the programme himself so we suddenly have a lot of random toddler selfies!!! Loving the shades too, very cool. x

    These are great! Were they taken on the laptop? x x

    Where can I get “Photobooth?” Off to google now.

    Hiya, photobooth is an apple Mac application. It uses the webcam in the laptop lid and takes stills or videos.

    We love this app! I find all sorts of weird images where the boys have learnt to use it on their own!!! Brilliant idea! xx

And finally a fab spirally path made with mosaic stepping stones using recycled materials like bottle tops, buttons and straws (from a show garden @bbcgwlive on 2005) #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #gardenersworldlive #mosaicsteppingstones #mosaicart Beautiful show garden from @bbcgwlive 2005.  Wouldn't this make a fab addition to your allotment! Link in bio for more pictures 
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #allotmentgardening #paintedtyregardenplanters #paintedtyres #gardenersworldlive These fab painted tyre planters were part of a show garden at @bbcgwlive in 2005.  They're teaching me a thing or too about blog traffic as I try to get my head around SEO and why some posts have lots of hits and some have none.  2826 people have searched for painted tyres since I shared it in 2011 as a #wordlesswednesday post.  I've now added in some copy about the day and some of the other photos.  Just shows that adding useful titles to your images can be as helpful as writing relevant copy!

#gloucesterlife #indoorsnowplay #childhoodunplugged A funny little momento from our walk on Crosby beach - holding hands and gazing out to sea :0). #anotherplaceanthonygormley #nipitinthebudblog #visitingliverpool A conversation with @hoshistarhoshistarhoshistar today reminded me of a visit to Liverpool in 2010.  100 cast iron, life size figures spread out along three kilometres of Crosby beach and stretching one kilometre out to sea.  Spectacular.  It's worth checking tide times if you want to be able to walk along the beach.
