Hey everyone! A couple photos from the last few days. I had something scary happen this morning at Shasta’s birthday party. I had snapped a couple of pictures of him admiring his cake(below) and then when we started singing happy birthday and whatnot, I switched to a different lens, and then my camera stopped auto-focusing! I tried everything I could, made sure it was on auto-focus mode, tried different lenses… nothing worked. I was so frustrated. When I got home I googled the problem and tried a couple of things to no avail. When I looked again I found that someone had suggested to clean the inside of the camera. I have a little camera duster brush so I used that, and I blew inside the body a few times – and it did the trick! Phew. Although I was annoyed I missed some good shots of Shasta blowing out his candle, I was thankful that 1) I got a pic of him beforehand and 2) this didn’t happen during my photo shoot I had tonight! And now I know what to do if it happens again. So, sadly these are the only in-focus pictures I have from this morning. We had fun eating cake and splashing around in the lake. It was short and sweet and I think we all had a fun time.
