Wordless Wednesday: Just Keep Swimming

Angry Kid has been swimming a ton this summer, almost every day actually. I’m quite jealous of his life. He doesn’t even know how good his life is, really! Last week, I borrowed a Sony Cyber-shot TX-20 from my friend, Ciaran.  After seeing Ciaran’s pictures that she posted for a review, I was impressed.  I didn’t want to carry my big DSLR around when we went to Legoland last week.  I borrowed the TX-20 from Ciaran for our Legoland trip, but I HAD to take it to our local pool also.

Yes, I went underwater with this camera. I didn’t use any special cases or anything like that. I put it on “underwater Mode” and dove right in. The kid had a blast taking pictures underwater with me.

Swimming, Underwater Photo
I also took this silly underwater portrait of the Angry Kid and I.

Totally cheesy self-portrait of the kid and me...underwater. Used the Sony Cybershot TX-20 that I borrowed from @momfluential #sonymoms
These photographs pretty much scream “SUMMER”. We still have one more week till school starts! We are enjoying our last seven days before second grade.

these pictures are great. the shot so much clearer than the dispossible camers, or even the 110 film camera my parents had. hooray for the last dog days of summer.

Thanks a lot for sharing bit liberating to just point & shoot again without thinking about settings.

Oh my gosh, those photos are amazing! The one of the two of you looks like it's from the other side of glass! Can I borrow it next? LOL

That takes awesome pics! I am so used to my dslr & it's tack sharp images that I was mildly disappointed when I tested out my son't Kodak underwater camera. It did okay & it was fun to shoot under water & it WAS a bit liberating to just point & shoot again without thinking about settings. But they did not come out as clear as these. I think I may need to pick up one of these Sony ones of my own.

Ok, how do you guys both look so perfect under water? You're not even squinty eyed. I look like a drowning rat under water. No matter how much waterproof mascara I'm wearing.

WAY clearer than the disposable cameras. I'm counting down, we only have five days of summer left. My son just asked to go to the beach today, and we have no time to go. :(

I know, right? I want to buy this camera but I have a ton of other things to pay for right now.

I know, right? I have more pictures to still edit. I'm so behind though. I have some really great ones, but alas dumb people are in the background swimming. We were at our HOA pool.

Seriously, sometimes the DSLR can be a pain. This P&S was so much fun, so easy to use, and turn it off/on was a breeze. I love how the pictures turned out. I was able to manage the white balance a little post-edit and that's what they are a tad brighter.

It was a ton of fun. I practiced first by taking stupid pictures of myself.

Look perfect? Hellz no!! I took like 10 different pictures. That was the best one of us.
