Foto Friday–Action

I’m going to make this short and sweet.  At least I’m going to try to make this short and sweet.  Sometimes I can ramble for a looooong time before I catch myself.  I’ll get right to the picture today.


This is one of my nephews.  He and his brother play Upwards basketball every year, and I try to make it to at least one game of theirs if I can. 

I love that this shot expresses his personality to a tee. While everyone around him is moving, he is standing still.  If there is a way for this boy to do something opposite of how everyone else does it, he’ll find it. He’ll probably do it well, and possibly better than anyone else can do it, but he’ll do it in his own sweet time.     He’s a lot like his mother.  Love you, Sister!


I liked this black and white edit using a Paint the Moon action.  I think it looks like a yearbook or newspaper picture.

In honour (I’m feeling British right now) of my find-a-different-way-to-look-at-things nephew, I thought I’d try a funky look to this photo as well.  It’s not one that I’d hang on my wall, but I think it’s kind of fun for this action shot.


As always, please head over to Kim’s blog at Mom Tried It and check out the other action shots for today. 

Have a great weekend!!


  1. How cool that he's the only one not blurred!! It gives this shot a neat effect!

  2. I love the b/w newspaper feel as well! Great edit!

  3. You and I are a lot alike. I have been known to start talking, go off on a tangent, and then forget what I supposed to be talking about. This happens more often than I care to admit.
    I love the action in the shot. I think its funny that he isn't moving. Lol

  4. great action shot, i'm terrible at capturing action.

    have a great week amanda!
