oh personal photography projects,
how i love to plan for thee
and then leave thee in the dust as i race off to something else.
so this year i decided to go easy on myself.
no 365, no themed projects-
just a photo every week
of my boys at this magical age that is two & four
i chose this not so much because i wanted to document this time in our lives
to remember, to look back on.
but more because when i pick up my film camera, i feel present.
it helps me to appreciate the moment that is being created as i create the photograph.
it’s an exercise of gratitude
for both the love i have of these ages, the challenges that go along with it
and for the bond that is forming between these two little boys-
they are each other’s favorite people.
and mine too.
