Odd name for a post huh? Well, it totally fits with today's pictures, as you can tell from the one above. I missed last week's Sunday Snapshot and in planning for this week's I remembered that I had never gone through my July 4th pictures. I filled another card that day and then quickly put in another for Stella's 1st bath (pictures and post to come). This morning I loaded them onto the computer and came across these of Braeden.
I have a weakness for taking pictures of kids blowing bubbles, as you might remember from a previous Sunday Snapshot post with Jack as the subject. There's something about the simple and innocent aspect of blowing bubbles. I in fact still love to play with bubbles and have an awesome bubble unit I teach in First Grade. I mean, who doesn't love the magic of bubbles. But I digress. The instant the boys and their cousins got their bubbles out I ran for the camera. They were up on a playscape and I noticed the light behind Braeden coming through the trees and I remember thinking, "These could make some great shots for a Sunday Snapshot post!". So here they are finally!
And better late than never right? There were a ton of other shots from that day, splashing around, playing, and fireworks. Maybe I'll get around to those another day. But I feel that these shots take the cake. Aside from the way they turned out, I think my favorite part is the fact how unplanned and natural they were. I love planning a good photo shoot, but sometimes life's spontaneity churns out something 10 times better than I could have ever planned.
This is one of those times!
|You know I had to play around with black and white, one of my favorite things. This one turned out great I think!|
All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land.
