Yesterday was bright, warm and beautiful until clouds swept in without warning. It turned dark and calm and I grabbed my camera because those are my favorite conditions to shoot in. I packed a polka dotted umbrella into my bag and started walking. Then, within 5 minutes, the clouds cleared, the wind blew and the sun shined again...the very second I got to the park. Oh well. It was still fun to practice shooting in full sun, which is not my favorite condition. It was time well spent!
I used to be so afraid of missing a moment. It was hard for me to put my camera down and just be present. My iPhone both helped and hurt this habit as I could capture everything without 5 pounds of gear around my neck, but now I have very few 'real' pictures of my kids from the past couple years. Bummer...sort of. It was a good lesson.
Anyway, I love that this project 365 has my camera out and to good use again. I thought it would be easy to take pictures every day as my kids are home from school this week...and it probably could have been...but I wanted a few moments just for us too.
I walked by my daughter's room yesterday and happened to catch this moment. I think it shows the past few days of togetherness without the need to see the rest.
Project resuming now...
