I did not take a photo today. Between work, kids going to friends house, training and also with me going out at night to a friend’s birthday dinner, there was simply no time.
Limited or no time is something I’m very mindful about this year. We do have such a busy schedule and each day just slipped by without us even noticing. It’s often that I get so caught up that I forget to slow down, zoom in and as a result, miss all that “little things” in betweens that makes me feel something. I went through many months without photos or words because I was so busy. As I reflect, there’s nothing there to remind me. I’m making a promise to myself that no matter how busy I get, I want to be able to freeze a moment in time consistently – it would be great if it can be done with a picture accompanied by words but I’m okay with one of either.
I need to slow my mind down and learn to see and feel .. even in the chaos.
This picture was taken at 6:43 pm last night. Alannah came to a family photoshoot with me and this is her first time seeing me interacting with my client. She was helping me with holding the stool and was just watching me. At the end of the session, I turned around and saw her comfortable on the stool. I asked her what she thought of me after the session and she said in an amusing manner “You were entertaining .. and aren’t you itchy lying on those grass?”
Entertaining? Not sure how I should interpret that.
