Project 52 – Week 47 – Thankful



Not my best attempt at a group shot of my 3 kids, but illustrating nonetheless what I’m most thankful for… my happy, healthy, girl and two boys.  Taken in front of the “Synchronicity of Color”, a wall of colorful art boxes on permanent display at Discovery Green in Houston, and marking almost the end of another entertaining year with my 16, 14, and 11 year olds.

I took this photograph as the light was diminishing on a lovely Sunday afternoon, using my Canon DSLR and my 50mm 1.4 lens.  My settings were ISO 160, shutter speed 1/400, and aperture f/2.0.  Really this picture could have been so much better, but I still liked it in spite of that, so I really played around with my edit in Lightroom 4.  I really reduced the contrast and highlights, increasing the vibrance a little, and then the sharpening a whole lot more.



Thankful for the four seasons and the gifts they bring each year.

This photo was taken in mid afternoon daylight with my Canon DSLR using my 50 1.4. lens. My settings were ISO 100, a shutter speed of 640 and my aperture was at 1.4. The edit was done on my iphone4 using VSCO and then cropped in squaready for an Instagram download.
