Eye Candy Friday | Another Morning in the Garden.

Any morning that starts with this view is bound to be a good one!

…and we ended with this. I taught Charlie the proper way to eat pizza – point first! He was a quick study ๐Ÿ˜‰

In between, we visited the Botanical Garden for Story Time and a quick walk to the big lawn for some exploring and camera practice.  Quite unlike our last visit, the sun was shining and the sky was clear and blue.

I used the 24-105mm f/4L lens (with a hood, but no filters). It’s a little big – and heavy – for being out and about, but when it’s just me and Charlie (no stroller, no diaper bag), it’s manageable. I love how versatile it is!

The garden is really a fun place to practice. But of course, the best part is sharing it with Charlie!

Happy Friday!

    Great photos of an adorably cute Charlie! I admire Charlie's restraint around the fountain; my kids were the ones who always wanted to climb in and splash around to gather coins that had been thrown in.

    What a pizza face! Love it. Great pictures Mary – the Botanical Gardens are so beautiful. Have a wonderful weekend!

    Charlie looks like a perfectly pleasant little boy — happy, well-mannered, neat! (And adorable, to boot.) I love that he wears his sunglasses! (I bet he doesn't complain when you slather on the sunscreen, either.) He is growing up so fast, Mary! What a fun time you have together. XO

    Great excursion and what a delight to see Charlie! He's a cool l'il dude… Thx for the pizza-eating tip; one would think that I knew that considering how much I love pizza! But in a way, I guess I do intuitively – easier to hold from the wide end, as I think about it…duh!
    Cheers~
