New Lens

I got a fun new 50 mm fixed lens for my camera and so I've been playing with it the last couple of days! Some ladies asked for some pics of our feet (you know... "how beautiful are the feet...") so I got a little carried away taking feet pictures :) You can see Aashini's cute little anklets (on her cute chubby feet!) :) In our area of South Asia, they give kids these anklets when they start walking (I think so that they can hear where they are) :) So, we bought some before we left to give her when she starting walking... she thinks they're cool :)
My cool friend Lea has almost the same lens that I do and taught me a fun trick tonight - so I had to try it out! I was too lazy to pull out the tripod (and make it look even cooler) but this still looks really cool :) These are the lights on our tree - I made them look like stars! Fun hunh?

Those baby anklets are so cool! Sort of like cowbells for babies. I want some for Abby. And I love your toe rings. Great photos!

I love little baby feet pics. I know Aashini isn't technically a baby though, but she's still got the little toesies! I love the ankle bracelets!! Wish I had thought ahead for Hazel!

Welcome to the land of the 50mm. My absolute favorite lens, as you know. :-)

hey for everyone else who loved those anklets (and who has a daughter to put them on... sniff), I saw that baby steals has some today. this is apparently the cambodian version but it's pretty similar. pretty anyway. http://www.babysteals.com/20081219_baby_emi_jewelry.php

That's really cool how your new lens made the lights look like stars!

I think it's funny that someone would consider it necessary to put jingly anklets on a baby to hear where they are...My kids are so noisy, I never lose them. No anklets required!! :) They do LOOK really cute though!

Love the feet shots, and I love taking those cool shots with my
35mm camera. I have a small Nikon digital, but just does not take the cool effect pictures. One day I'll get a 35mm digital.
Keep up the great pictures.

What fun pictures! Aashini's anklets are too cute. How long do babies wear them?

Ah- you got a new lens! You'll have to tell me what you think about it sometime soon!! That's one I've been looking at for awhile now! I can't wait to hear all your input! Love the feet pics- you know I have a passion for those little toes too!

Florida Gators!

OK, so don't get me wrong by the title... I'm a super proud Florida State Grad and a big FSU fan... but this week here in Thailand, Tim Tebow is hanging out with us :) For those that don't know, he's the quarterback for University of Florida - he's a believer and a really awesome bold guy. So, since he's a Heisman winner (AND the only underclassman to ever win the Heisman) we thought we should get Aashini in a Heisman pose with him :) haha!

The Hijras are Coming!!!!

Today we had a fun / interesting cultural experience :) Here in our country, there are these people called Hijras हिजड़ा .... or Eunuchs. Most of these people are true eunuchs - they were born without male or female parts. They all live together in their own ghetto. If you have a child that is a Hijra, then they will come and demand you for your child and people here will give them their child. They all live together and in order to get money, they mostly do a glorified sort of begging. They are always dressed to the hilt. They come and visit you when you've had something big happen in your life - usually weddings and.... NEW BABIES. They come and dance and make a HUGE ruckus. They ususally do this until they are given a large amount of money. Some of them can be quite crazy and violent, but mostly they will just annoy you to death, barge into your home (or wedding) and dance and sing around until you give them money (usually around $100-200 is their demand).

Campa Cola & Exploring :)

Today we had some things to do in the Central part of our city, so while we were there, we decided to take on some adventures :) Adventure #1 - the underground market. This market is pretty crazy. It's actually underground and has electronics & clothes mostly. They sell things pretty cheap, so it's an interesting place to go. Today we got an 64 Gig flash drive/pen drive for about $5. Crazy hunh? Here's Adam and Aashini in one of the stores. They're all REALLY small stores - about 10x10 feet I would guess (but I'm really bad at guessing that sort of stuff :)) We go here a lot to get things, so I guess it's not a new adventure, but an adventure nonetheless.
Before the next part of our adventure (the real part of our adventure) we stopped for lunch. Aashini will always eat at McDonalds, so that's where we went :) They just started selling chicken nuggets here at McDonalds, so it's super easy to get her to eat there :) This McDonald's had high chair…
