photos of the everyday, and everynight

Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography

Since we bought our Nikon D70 two years ago we’ve taken about 13,000 photos. That’s a lot of photos. A lot of photos get taken when we’re out and about: camping, hiking, skating, at the fair etc. A lot of photos are taken on special occasions. And then there’s the whole other category of photos: cuteness for the sake of cuteness.

I think we should all try to take photos of the regular everyday stuff. Ultimately this is the kind of thing that we (and maybe our kids and grandkids) will find really interesting years from now.

When was the last time you took a picture of:

– your neighbors
– your child’s playmates, classmates, teachers
– their toys/art/bedroom
– you child when they’re fast asleep ?

Emma is always surrounded by books and comics when I tuck her in at night.

Sarah has taken to wearing a “sleep hat” at bedtime. It makes me laugh everytime I see her.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (18) and Sarah (16). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
