my birthday present

I few weeks ago Lisa asked me, "What do you want for your birthday?" and I thought about it and said, "I would love to take pictures of my family, and have them just let me have the freedom to shoot them without resistance." I enjoy photography, but I am still pretty new at it. I like taking pictures of people, but I don't have much experience directing them and getting the image I want. So this would be fun for me if it worked. Last week was my birthday and Lisa arranged for us to head downtown so that I could "click" away with my camera. For me I gained more experience and I found some images of people I love. I put some of those images into a 97 second video/slideshow and inserted it below.
