One of Bradley’s school friends had a party at the firestation today.

It was loads of fun. Both the kids had a blast!  I know the drill at the firestation… we’ve been to many parties there, but today was totally different.

Not only was there the normal fire truck siren thing, and the fire hose try-out thing… but the parents had also organised cupcake decorating, face-painting and drumming!  It was crazy, every few minutes the kids has something else to do.  I was in awe!  That mom must’ve spent hours preparing everything!

Anyhoo, that’s not the point to my post… and if you want to see some pics, check out my photoblog.

Firstly let me say that I was carrying my camera around the entire afternoon.  It was amazing to me how people treated me differently with this camera compared to the last one.  With the P&S I was tolerated… me and my camera… but now… I got asked so many times whether I’m professional. LOL!

People made space for me!  I got told to stand in front of people to take photos!  Oh the pressure!

Eventually the parents asked me if I could take photos for them… their camera stopped working.  So then the pressure was on!  OMW!  I hope they like them!

I’m having a bit of a problem with focus on the lens, so I’m a bit disappointed with the quality of some of the shots, and the light wasn’t good.  I really have to figure out how to use the manual settings I think.

But in the end it was fun afternoon, with me chasing Connor away from ducks and water and chickens and the road… in between taking photos of everyone!  I’m exhausted!
