Day 197 – 05/21/11 – Birthday Bounce

Well as I mentioned yesterday, today is the little one’s birthday party.  Two parties, actually.  One with about a dozen of her friends, and then another later with family.  As you can imagine, everyone here is happy but exhausted.

Given the gaggle of giggling girls running around all day, and the giant inflatable jumpie in the backyard, the subject for today’s image was rather a no brainer.

I did experiment with adding the flash into the mix as well.  It was a tad unwieldy with a top heavy camera once the bouncing started, but the effort was well worth it.  The flash gave me the ability to freeze the action, resulting in much crisper images.

  1. These are adorable. I love the action shot.

  2. Brave brave man, I know how those birthday parties can be! Not sure about you, but I am dreading when my girls hit the teenage years…sigh.

    Love the second image and not just because our house is a Hello Kitty household! 😛

    How FUN! Some of my grandkids got to enjoy one of those this weekend as well – they are always such a big hit. LOVE the second shot especially – great air shot – great for Sweet Shot Tuesday.

  4. I’m in love with jumping shots lately and this one is no exception. This is a great shot!
