Family, not always picture perfect, but it is what you make it.
Well this was the picture I submitted (not thinking it would ever be accepted) and it was accepted and as a result was featured on Lenscratch and is being published along with the other entries in this category that were featured by Aline Smithson. In a way, getting this accolade has been the catalyst for me really starting to think about what photographs can say and mean and lead onto, a bit like this blog.
My immediate family is Anders the husband I adore, me and the son which we both absolutely wholeheartedly adore, Dexter.
As I have been really very unwell with the flu, I am so glad to have had my two boys with me and we have had a lovely time together. My sister didn't manage to make it over after all which was a disappointment, but given that I was so unwell, it was probably for the best as I would not have wanted her to catch this. We did however have a wonderful Christmas, and one of the presents I received was a fantastic book on the past 150 years of photo journalism. I have not picked up the camera for the last few days, but now that I am feeling a lot better I am about to start playing with it and the new lenses which were under the tree.
Christmas, much like motion has passed in a blur. The one thing that for us that has held true is sharing of lots of unconditional love for us make us feel safe and secure. We had a lovely Christmas Day, it was simple and really nice.
and the prettiest package of all was Dexter as he is just one big bundle of wrapped up love and was just so happy on Christmas morning seeing what Santa had brought him for being such a great boy.
Glow, well that is something that you feel when all is right with the world.
and then you feel all sparkly and happy!
