It just sucks to be a Mom and not be feeling well, because the being a Mom part doesn't stop! So, for the first time in a long time I've missed multiple weekdays. I'll try to catch up again soon. In the meantime, check out those eyes.. at the park on one of our first warm days.
My 2.5 year old convinced me to make cupcakes with him one afternoon this week (parenting is full of all sorts of lessons like this.) Pretty obvious what happens when you hand a toddler a mixer beater full of chocolate cake batter.. the rest of the pictures are all smiles but were fuzzy; this one only looks like he feels guilty. He didn't!
As you probably guessed, we went to the Kennedy Center on Fri night for Verdi's Requiem. Here is the outside shot I got as we drove away (weeping), with some cool lights of the city behind on the left.
So, I'm painfully aware that I live in one of the most picturesque, photogenic capitals in the world, and I've been shooting daily shots of... my kids. And my dogs. So I'm trying to capture a little more of our glorious city. For my fellow photobloggers.
I went to drop off a donation to a charitable organization this weekend, and, wanting to capture the bright blue sky shining overhead, looked up and saw this. Cool building.
I couldn't get her to stop moving. She's my star poser, but was itching for a scratch soo badly she couldn't sit still, so I need to sharpen this up in Lightroom which I just downloaded!! (Now I need someone to help me figure out how to use it!)
We went out to our local "Beach Shack" (cool seafood joint) with some friends and toddler friends to see a kid's musician play.. then stayed for dinner with our huge crowd. This wall had signed flip-flops all over it, so of course I told everyone I had to "get it for my photo blog." This was met with blank looks.

It's really very simple. I love the visual representation of the world and the people in it. I love the joy, the pain, and everything in between. I have always had this love affair, and probably always will.
I have another blog for the written word. It turns out, I have a lot to say over there.
Someday, I would very much like to formalize my love affair into being a portrait photographer, and this blog is part of that journey. If you see something you like, please let me know.
