Sometimes, photography, or life, is about what we don't see. A lot of my pictures at home crop out the messes and clutter. It makes the picture nice, and it focuses on what I want to remember...the facial expressions--smiles, laughter, delight--not how hard it was to keep the house clean with all those kids at home. It is no different out and about. You see my daughter enjoying dancing and music with a friend of ours, not the baby sprinting figure eights through the crowd, running over random blankets or jumping into stranger's chairs--or worse, getting into their food! But, perhaps, looking back, that will seem funny....not stressful and exhausting as it does now.
Here's to focusing on the happiness.
Have a great weekend!
