Some thoughts on photography

Here's my two cents on photography...
They don't have to be perfect in order to be lovely.

What I remember about the pictures from my own childhood is that Mom or Dad captured me in a moment and developed the film and had the prints.  Some got stowed in albums (without scrapbooking details and on acidic sticky paper no less!) And get this some of them were of fingers or double exposed or overexposed, but they were still wonderful to me and to them and to all the relatives they showed to at the time.

I take a LOT of pictures but there are very few that I actually put on paper, which is a shame, because that means that they are just little digital files in the computer which can (and probably will) crash at any moment.  And the worst part is that I KNOW that Hannah likes actual pictures and puts them in her room any time she finds them around.

So my goal is to not only print some pictures, but to get some photo albums to put them in as well. And on that note, I want to share with you two pictures that are by no means perfect, but they captured something that I found quite beautiful.

The house was smokey because of something that was burning off in the oven and the light just happened to catch it just right.  In the second one, she is jumping off the step stool she was using to get close to the sunlight.  I think Hannah wanted to dance in the clouds that day.
