    The kids bullied me tonight, not satisfied with being on steam trains and stuff today, they still wanted more!

    They forced me to take them out to take photographs - trouble is, they wanted to take em :(

    So off we went, one of my sons had a plan to go to his friends, so I dropped him off then went looking for inspiration - where to go???? it started raining, and was really dull, but I saw a light out west, so west we headed. We ended up in a little village called Minster Lovell which is a peaceful and serene little village as long as RAF Brize Norton is not launching many planes, and went to the village church.

    I actually had a play with my Rollei tonight, which was different to say the least, but thats gonna be a while to see what comes out of it, in the meantime, here are the digital captures....

    My son Brad grabbed a hold of the Practika - it has some really out of date film in it, so I'm not sure how his shots will come out

    My daughter Phoebe wasn't satisfied with the old olympus that I normally throw their way, and made off with the S45

    Very nice and good to see them interested. I started with a Practica when I was nine and used several for 10 years.

    Kids always get better shots then me.

    The last one is too dark, could it possible be a bit lighter? and good work!

    isn't it the best feeling when your family also shares your love of photography? results in some of the best times shared. great series - i like them all....your daughter is so cute! can't wait to see the rest.

    I love the second shot. Its really captures the mischievous look on your daughters face as she makes off with the camera.
    Great series of shots.

    Congratulations to Phoebe on her sly one ;) :D

    And on the one of the church as well!!! That one is really good. I would have liked for her to catch a crow in her photo, then she would have achieved what so many of us are so far trying in vain (except for one). But alas! it was not to be.

    Both look lovely in your photos of them, your son framing his picture, and Phoebe's endearing smile in the second. Very nice.

    I shall be watching this space! ;) Since you're posting right now, your Sunday photo excursion might be over and you'll soon add new ones to these!?!?!?!?

    Phoebe has good taste in Camera choice. :mrgreen:

    Was her first shot of the church taken with the S45?
