Okay, so this posting every day in the month of May isn't working out exactly as planned....
May 7: I know I've said it before, but I love to photograph children from behind. I think it's the most natural pose for kids. After you become a parent, you spend the rest of your life watching your children go before you, into the unknown country and the land of adventure. The great promise of parenthood is that your children will go farther, and do more than you have done.
These are a couple of kids from a family that I photographed on Friday night. They're just as cute from the front, but having not asked permission, I didn't feel at liberty to send their faces out to the entire world (or at least my little corner of it).
May 8: $5400
This is NOT what my wife got for Mother's Day.
A friend of a friend is selling her wedding ring, and needed pictures (sometimes I don't ask questions), but that's about the quickest I ever got around to taking pictures -- I did NOT want to keep that ring in my possession overnight.
May 9: Guess who's ball was black.
It wasn't mine. Mine was green.
Notice there is no green ball in the picture.
May 10: I just love my tulips, but I thought we needed a new perspective.
I take my flower pictures right after work, while I'm still dirty. That way I can roll around on the ground, and not feel too guilty about it.
Feeling conspicuous...well, that's a different story.
May 11: Yep, I took a picture of my iPod.
It's come to that.
Do you ever come across a movie that just touches the right spot in your heart?
That's what Leap Year did to me. (A big part of that is Amy Adams -- I just love her. It's okay, my wife knows).
I am, and always have been, hopelessly and unashamedly romantic.
And, once in a while, you find a soundtrack that speaks to your soul as much as the movie itself.
May 12: This was the best picture I took Wednesday.
I took pictures of my kids, and the sky, and some crayons, and my hairy legs, and the fence, and some bicycles.
And the fire hydrant that I nearly run over every day.
I'm not sure why I took this picture -- sometimes shapes and colors just catch my eye.
I'm not saying it's a good picture, I'm just saying it's the best one I took on Wednesday.
May 13: It's hard to tell which one is the bigger goof, but we're certainly cut from the same cloth.
I've accepted that now.
(How about that double chin?!)
