Friday Night Photos #111

It has been a crazy-busy week, and I wasn't even sure if I should do this post because all but one of the photos I took were at Eli's baseball games! I had a lot of fun taking pictures, though. Jerry's mom has a nice DSLR camera that she wants to learn how to use, and Noah borrowed it to learn and show her. Just for the heck of it, I brought it to one of Eli's games and did my best to get the hang of it.

I took literally 300 photos! (I deleted about 200--the ones that didn't turn out very good.) I played with different settings and went around the field for different angles and stuff like that--and I managed to get some really good pictures (for my lack of photography skills and knowledge, anyway). Eli said his teammates really liked them (I tried to get pictures of everybody) and he asked if I would take more pictures this season.

I won't bombard this post with those photos, but like I do every year, I have to share a few side-by-side comparison photos of Eli from when he was younger to now (he's been playing since he started t-ball at age three). I can't believe how grown-up he looks now.

I had to zoom in close to make sure that was Eli in all that big catchers' gear!

This is my favorite picture that I took at his game (it's not Eli, but I love the pic itself of this tag at home plate). I can't remember if he was safe or out! But it's crazy to me that it looks so close even though I was sitting on the ground waaaaay out in left field. 

This is going to be a short post, because the only other picture I have was from this morning when Duck woke me up. He's gotten in the habit of waking me up by plopping himself down on the right side of my face. Then he purrs and sleeps pressed up against me. The most comforting feeling ever is when Duck's warm belly is pressed against my cheek and I can hear him purring.

Hopefully I'll have a bigger variety to write about next week!

Have a great weekend. xo

  1. I love the side by side photo - comparisions. I always wanted to do this. I am just getting my photos organized. Great job as well for Eli as well to continue with his passion and not give up. Now I am going to be on the hunt for some side by side photo frames. Photography as you get older can be a great hobby. You have good talent.


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
