I am not much of a photographer. I appreciate the art - I enjoy seeing the beauty in common things - but I do not have the ability to create it. But I do have a camera smarter than I am (purchased after my old one was stolen from my porch - remember that?), and sometimes it will surprise me. It isn't my doing - let's be clear - but sometimes my camera will catch what I see in just the right way.
like clown noses
and the occasional pout
and the sacred Sunday afternoon nap
I'm glad to have the pictures, because I know I won't remember. Someday people will ask me about having three kids under four, and what we did with our time, and all I will have to offer are the pictures of the moments that filled up our lives.
