Rather, my passion for photography is growing exponentially! I'm in love with images that showcase the natural and simple joys of life. Ya know, the everyday moments that sometimes get overlooked. Throughout the past year, photographing life...especially through the eyes of my children...has become my outlet. It's a way to freeze time forever. Kids grow so quickly, and photography has a way of capturing a single moment and stopping time indefinitely (or at least until a wild dog reaps havoc on my SD cards and hard drive!)
I have SO much to learn in terms of photography, and maybe one day I'll have it mastered! I'm not crossing my fingers, though. This might prove to be more difficult than passing Organic Chemistry during my college years.
In my endeavour to learn more about photography, I've become part of a blog circle. A few of us women (moms and photographers) have joined together to share our everyday moments. A glimpse into our lives...a moment that's frozen in time.
This group is full of some astounding photographers! They give me inspiration, and I wanted to share their talents with all of you. If you follow our circle, you'll venture through nine other posts that showcase the everyday lives of wonderful photographers. The circle should lead you back here...ya know, like a circle! Crazy, huh?!
I'll start off by sharing a few of my attempts of capturing the simple things...the everyday moments.
A sleeping child. A time when you sit in awe and wonder, which may be overcome by a pure sense of exhaustion as you drift off to sleep next to the child. Or so I've heard.
And sometimes this boy slows down just long enough for me to sneak up and grab a quick shot!
And let me preface the following image...NO ONE was hurt in the process of capturing this moment. He was merely saddened by the fact that he is too young to gallivant around with a marker. How will he ever exhibit his Picasso-like talents with his mama interfering? Anyway, it was just a brief instance where he was pouty, and my camera was already in use. Yes, I missed the focus a bit, but I couldn't resist sharing!
