Day 25 {Brisbane Children’s Photography}

This photo a day challenge, is where I embark on the epic, personal journey to take one photograph every day for the month of January, of the things that are important to me.

A lot of rain equals feral children. It must be some unwritten law. Got to be. When it rains it pours, so what do I do? Send them out to play.

It was all fun and games until the poor duckie umbrella got broken (part negligence of Byron and Willow). Not a happy camper here. I wish kids’ umbrellas would last more than five minutes in my home. Sigh.

Day 24 {Brisbane Children’s Photographer}

This photo a day challenge, is where I embark on the epic, personal journey to take one photograph every day for the month of January, of the things that are important to me.

Truth. It’s been a long day. The light was fading. I had not yet captured a photo of the day.

Quickly kids…come outside and I’ll take a picture of your feet
Arrghhh mum, do we have to?” Byron protested in the whiniest voice ever.
Please. Only take a second. I just can’t be bothered taking anything else”. I pleaded. It happens some days. They obliged and removed themselves from the lounge…pausing the Simpons of course.
Oh! I’ll go make a sign for ‘our family feet’” says Lily.
Greeaaat!” says Byron maintaining his whinny stance. “We don’t need a sign!!!”.

It’s spitting rain. The kids are complaining because they have to stand next to each other. Close. Willow is doing her own thing as usual. The sign is melting. Byron is still complaining (here I was thinking I had a few more years before that). Click. Click. Click. Photo taken.

Some days it’s just too hard for anything else.

Day 23 {Brisbane Photographer}

This photo a day challenge, is where I embark on the epic, personal journey to take one photograph every day for the month of January, of the things that are important to me.

I spotted it out of the corner of my eye. “Oh! Oh! Hold that thought!” I yelled as I grabbed my camera and ran over to the swings.

It was the sweetest of sweet things I had seen today. They were just hanging around apparently. Looking at the world ‘all upside down’ because that’s what you do when you swing on the swings. Duh! It was all Willow’s idea of course.

To see the world through the eyes of a three year old is such a privilege. I only wish it was me swinging right there beside her. I could do with an upside down perspective of things right now. Next time perhaps.
