Somehow, the crisp white background and the knowledge that YOU will be looking here opens my eyes to a photo that need a bit of contrast, a fix in color casts, sharpening or is maybe possibly absolutely perfect the way it is.
Writing is the same way on the blog. The combination of the fresh white page and your listening ears make life clear and beautiful. My muddled ideas pop into focus when they hit the page.
Saturday I was struggling to write an essay on teenagers and I finally just shut down microsoft word and began writing here in blogger. My blog friends are a diverse and intelligent group and you help me edit as I write, “Hmm, mama would tell me to stop taking that so seriously. Jane will think that’s funny. Ooh, Annie is going to expect better than that.”
Don’t worry, I’m not taking this blogging thing too seriously. Silliness will always reign supreme at my house but I love the way you make me think, I love the way you listen.
Two very different and very lovely family photo sessions: one of them I walked away saying, “We nailed it!” and the other I was sure I didn’t get a single decent shot. I don’t think I’ll tell you which was which because (amazingly!) they both turned out pretty nice. 😉
I’ll keep adding photos to this post over the next few days.
