Cabin Fever?

Any other year I would be burning up with cabin fever.  But here in Southern Illinois it was 70 degrees yesterday.  In February!!! Granted this weekend we are supposed to be in the 40s, but that is still better than single digits.

So for this week’s P52 theme of “Cabin Fever” I am sharing a photo I took yesterday of Little Lady playing in the kitchen sink.  She has her utensils and she is playing to her heart’s content. Water spilled a little here and there.  Bubbles got in the hair, but it was all okay (especially since I hadn’t done her hair yet).

I caught this photo as she was deep in play.  She didn’t even notice I had finished unloading the dishwasher and left the room.  She is getting to be such a big girl.  Tomorrow she turns 18 months old and she finally broke the 20 pound barrier.  Woohoo!

Shot with my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens.  Aperture: f/2.5 with selective focal point on her face.  Shutter speed: 1/25.   ISO: 100.  White Balance: 6000 (obviously before I decided to edit into black and white).

  3. Beautiful. Did you hand hold that 1/25 or use a tripod. It is quite sharp.

    1. No tripod. I would not have had time to get it set up. I was sureshe would stop at any second. That is why my camera was still at ISO 100 from some shots I took before. I just got to adjust aperture and shutter speed. Thank goodness I have developed strong arm muscles from carrying around the kiddos. ;)

  6. Great shot! This is SO my 19 month-old! Any time she sees me at the sink (no matter how enthralled she is in the activity she's doing at the time) she comes running, "Help? Help? Help?!"

  12. Love, love, LOVE this photo Kim! The light is beautiful and her small size in the big grown up world tells such a sweet story. Did you use a tripod? I saw 1/25 and there's no way my hand would be that steady. If you did it, hats off! It's a beautiful image ;)

  16. Love your shot. She look so tiny in that chair.

  17. Oh sheesh Kim. I swear your skillz are getting a tad intimidating :)

    I love all the life in that image - it's just full of it without too much going on. With the towels on the floor to the water on the counter, to the bubbles in her hair. It's like perfect composition without trying.

    It seems like she was just a little peanut in your arms, I remember that was the first picture of her I saw. They grow to fast!

  20. This is such a great picture of your daughter. It reminds me of my own daughter who loves to play in the sink. It's so natural and the b&w is also a great touch.
