Best Shot Monday- Jump on In

Our next door neighbors have a swimming pool. They are out of town for a couple of weeks so we are watering their plants for them. This also means we get to go swimming whenever we want. We are taking full advantage of this luxury.

I am still having problems getting my shots in focus with my new camera. I really want to start using the manual modes, but for right now it is auto everything. I still liked this shot eventhough it is out of focus.

My son finally got up the nerve to get in the pool. He has been staying on the steps, but Saturday he went for it. Now he is all about swimming. He does not want to take off his shirt or shoes though which is very strange, but whatever works. He would live in his firetruck shirt, if we let him. He asks to wear it every day and gets SOOO excited when it is clean.

My daughter loves fairies and I thought this one was cute.

This one was taken at our house and has nothing to do with swimming, but I am picking it as my best shot. Mainly because both of my kids are actually looking at the camera at the same time.

Access to a pool - I'd be tkaing advantage too!! Adorable pictures, and your focus doesn't look too bad to me. I actually found it easier to use the menaul controls...suto just won't do what I want. Love the light in the fairy one!

Getting more than one person to look at the camera at the right time is definitely an achievement - esp. if they're under 10. Great shots: Enjoy the pool!

That last shot is cute!

Start with auto and then go to program and move onto manual. You'll get there! And these look great! How fun to have a pool for awhile!

That first looks fab to me. I do love the last one of them together. What kind of new camera do you have?

Love your best shot! - and the other pics too. I'm with you. Isn't it nice to have decent expressions and both eyes on the camera?
