When I started this Photo Friday project, I had intented it to be a way for me to challenge myself to take pictures each week and hopefully find one that I thought was good enough to share with the world (or at least my blog readers). It has been that and so much more. It's a great creative outlet for me. I know at the beginning of each week that I have this task to complete so I begin looking at things in a different way. An evening with a beautiful sunset where my kids are playing outside while my husband does yardwork turns from a time I would normally catch up on some recorded tv or check my email into a time for me to join my family outside and capture them in the gorgeous glow of the sunset. I couldn't pick just one picture this week and first when this was happening it kinda irked me because I am a rule follower and in my head I had made a rule that I should only post one photo. Now I realize that it is a sign of growth on my part as a photographer that I have more than one picture to share. So, I'm done with my stupid rules and I'm posting a whopping six photos this week! I'm a rebel, what can I say.
My new favorite thing...squishing photos together to form a collage. I like how it helps the photos to tell a story, like this one of her picking a flower for me.
I love this collage because it shows the progression of her pout. I caught her picking the flowers and she wanted it to be a suprise so she was upset. I just love how kids show their honest emotions at all times. Except when it involves a tantrum in public...then I hate it.
