How we whiled away our wet weekend

Well on a wet & windy weekend thought a little studio shoot might be fun

 

First its off to the beach to blow away some cobwebs & collect our subjects

On the way back & a quick spin in the go-karts. Photo coutesy of Mrs Lona (yours truly making a rare appearance in front of the lens)

Subjects gathered its into the studio (or as everyone esle calls it...the garage)
The able assistant sets to work arranging the shoot.

Nicely done son, now step aside & let your old man do the business.

Whats that you say son? You think you should check the set-up.

Realising that all that remains is to press the button, the able assistant dispenses with dad.
Aim - Focus - Fire!

Shots in the can, its off to the lab for some "shopping"

TA DAH!! Look what I did!

& here's the fruits of our labour.
This will do nicely for "show n tell" at school next week

Or maybe this?

That'll do son, that'll do.

Thanks for dropping by.

Hi Alan.

What a great idea.  Like Viv says, a bit of Son & Dad time.  You didn't have to "shell" out too much either.

Thanks for that Alan.  Nice one.

What a snashing idea for a blog. I really like the first picture, and of course, No 8 - Able Assistant looks justifiably pleased with the result. Your captions are great - hope you get to do more thinkgs like this together.

As I have repeatedly stated, I love personal photoblogs. This is one of the best I have seen. Great job! The final (cooler) image would be my take. The Mrs. enjoyed the warm vibrant colors of the first. Either one should be an A+, just like this blog. Thanks for sharing.

I don't text and drive,  I snap photos. =)
