As I mentioned, there are a lot of changes going on...and change can bring some chaos with it. In that chaos, things can get lost in the shuffle. I realized, when I took those last images of my daughter, that it had been a long, long time since I had used my camera to take any images for myself. Shooting sessions is awesome, don't get me wrong.....but I miss shooting for myself too. Just for the love of photography. I could make some goal to shoot something for myself every day, but I know I would never keep it up. What I am going to do, is make a conscious effort to use my camera like I used to. As an outlet....a release...and something just plain fun to do. So..along with this brain dump, you get a camera dump too. These are some random personal images off of my camera this week. The kids doing school work. You can't even tell that they were bickering like a couple of rabid squirrels, can you?
A settings adjustment shot. Yes, I adjust my settings by taking shots of my shoes. I have a lot of these. I always delete them. I decided to let this one live.
A sky shot. Duh. But...look at the puffy clouds....And! It is actually blue! In Southern California that is not something to be taken for granted. Not sure where all of the smog decided to go on this particular day.
My daughter and the neighbor girls...all squeezing on one rocking cow toy. They had quite the system going to make sure everyone fit...and got a turn in each spot.
Sophia...in a moment of drama, I am sure. Almost all of her moments are moments of drama.
