With four children this week’s Photo Friday challenge – Play – should have been easy, but I hadn’t realised just how slow the autofocus is on the Canon G5. Our kids tend to move around at a speed that the human eye can barely comprehend, and my camera just isn’t up to it. Over the last couple of days I must have taken dozen’s of shots that have no children in them at all (by the time the camera had focussed, the children had long gone ;-)

For this shot though the movement was a bit more predictable and I quite like how it turned out. I did want to take something of them playing together, as we’re really fortunate that our kids all seem to like one another, but none of them were worth putting up so I gave up trying :-)
