Photo Challenge 2018 – Week 7

So I broke a board last week. I thought I would do a self-portrait to commemorate. It’s been a strange mix of emotions since the boys and I completed our rank test and moved on to Purple 1. So proud of them and the work they did. Challenged by new classes and the work that is before us. At the same time, it’s been tough to carry on without Colin on this part of the journey. I miss having him in class and sharing the experience. It’s only a temporary thing, but it’s not fun. Heal quickly, My Dear!

Photo Challenge 2018 – Week 3

Thankful for time with my family, for a beautiful place to live, for crisp, winter walks.

My Colin.

Week 3 4

I got to take photos of a gorgeous, one week old baby this week. One of the most significant things to me about photos is capturing moments and memories. Our family loves to look back at photos of the boys when they were younger, of things we have done as a family – the shared experiences and events and even just the random moments are rich and precious.

Photo Challenge 2017 – Week 31: Portrait, Street Candid

OK – this is the challenge that has stalled me out forever. I considered skipping it altogether. I’m just not up to asking a random person on the street if I can take their photo. So I was going to skip it and then I remembered a photo I took years ago when I lived in London and we took a group from our Life Skills Project to the seaside for the day. While wandering around I saw this couple enjoying the sun in true British fashion and it has always been one of my favorite photos. So it’s not recent, but it sure is candid!Week 31
