i'm excited to share that i'm part of a group of women that share photos of real life on the 10th of every month this year. documenting and finding beauty in the every day, good, bad, norm. these are the photos that i love to take. the things that happen all around me, and are beautiful moments that happen in our lives, the moments frozen in time when captured. i decided to stick to my favorite black and white images of january.
there is a book we are reading at bedtime called the 'star child', and there is a lot of beauty in that book. the Star Child, a tiny flame of vapor, invisible and timeless, watches the Earth from far, far away. He marvels at the blue swirls of the ocean and the green land, a bright spot turning through the darkness of space. He wants to go to this wondrous place, but he ponders: What will that life be like? I found it my inspiration for many of the photos I took this month, and using that sense of wonder and newness in every day moments, and every day things.
hop over to Katie Brenkert's Everyday Moments page to see her january real life photos and continue on the blog circle.
i had so much in common with this lady it was hard not to want to sit and just have tea. i enjoyed this family so much, and their oldest was fascinated by the lenses and how my camera worked. i left refreshed after spending the morning with them in lovely steilacoom, thankful for the time to peek into their morning routine.
