The Portrait Series 6/52 and Eye Ointment Photography

The flood damaged parks are starting to reopen.And someone is excited about getting back in the swing of things.
We are only six weeks in and I have already realised that my photographs are very repetitive…it looks like we do a lot of swinging and a lot of eating fruit on the front verandah!This is a bit of a misrepresentation as we do many things other than swing and eat fruit!

The Portrait Series 3/52

An early morning moment…barely awake, enjoying strawberries on the front stoop.
I found it really difficult to choose a photo this week.I think part of it is that I am back at work and so I have less time to share with Toddler C. The time that I do have to share with him we generally spend out and about so there have been fewer slow, easy moments at home when I can pull out my iPhone and click away.The other part of it is that I couldn’t wait and have already shared so many photos on Facebook and Instagram! I must learn to be patient and to keep a favourite for Saturday!I hope that read more
