Fuzzy Backgrounds Abound


My very first batch of pictures taken with my fancy new camera! (Okay, it’s not really that fancy, but I like to pretend).

Christmas dinner — seafood hotpot.

Sophie’s new dress which looked fabulous on her and which made her feel “like a worker at a store.” (I think that is a good thing.)

Waterfalls make such excellent backgrounds.

These llamas are my family’s next door neighbors. I’ve wanted to photograph them for years — can you imagine having llamas next door and not wanting to? This wasn’t quite the shot I had in mind, but it was so cold outside that this was the best we could do with our fingers half frozen.

When Alan saw them, he exclaimed how ugly they were, but I think they are terribly cute.

On the bit of deck in the backyard, we have a neighborhood cat that comes by and lounges for hours on end, soaking in sun and waiting for snuggles. Alan named her Garfield.

Some families bake sugar cookies on Christmas Eve to leave out for Santa. My parents made bananas and sweet rice wrapped in banana leaves to leave out for me.

Special baby bananas = super sweet

Made with love
