As of July 1 I began posting my daily photos over at my main blog, A Fresh Perspective.
I found the need to eliminate one blog, and since this one came second, this is the one.
I hope you will choose to join me over at A Fresh Perspective for daily photos, photo challenges,
and some other fun stuff thrown in.

ISO 400, f/8.0, 1/800s, white balance auto, D3100 w/55-200mm lens
In keeping with my personal challenge to photograph my children each month on the anniversary of their birthday, today is Keira's turn.  Today she is 12 1/2.  Yes, she will be a teenager in just 6 short months!  
I took this photo while we were taking another walk through our neighbors' woods.  Hence the cut off capris and boots.  :)  It was warm enough for capris and I insisted on the boots because of all the mud I knew we would encounter.  And we did.  Lots of it.  The dog will be getting a bath tomorrow.  :)
On a side note, today is also my husband's birthday.  I was hoping to photograph him as well, but I only saw him briefly this morning before leaving for the gym and him leaving for a 12-hour work day.  I will try to pin him down tomorrow.  :)

I love the light and sun flare in this shot! We've had a teenager for almost a year now. So far, so good!
