photos of the everyday, and everynight
Posted by andrea tomkins in: Photography
Since we bought our Nikon D70 two years ago weâ€™ve taken about 13,000 photos. Thatâ€™s a lot of photos. A lot of photos get taken when weâ€™re out and about: camping, hiking, skating, at the fair etc. A lot of photos are taken on special occasions. And then thereâ€™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 childâ€™s playmates, classmates, teachers
– their toys/art/bedroom
– you child when theyâ€™re fast asleep ?
Emma is always surrounded by books and comics when I tuck her in at night.
Sarah has taken to wearing a â€œsleep hatâ€ at bedtime. It makes me laugh everytime I see her.
