Time flies. Trite, but true! It’s been a few months since I posted last. I’ve got to stop saying “sorry” because obviously, this is the hallmark of the new, not-so-improved, mommy me.
Anyway, I did it again. I shot a photo at an angle (accidentally) and ended up liking the shot because of the way it framed the subject. And yes, it’s wholly accidental – when your two year old son offers you a strawberry (and you’re 8 months pregnant sitting on the ground) the only way to capture it in time is to throw the camera up and click the shutter!
I do have to point out that it looks deliberate. That makes the sin of the angle a little less problematic. If you happen to get a slight angle in your image or the horizon isn’t completely straight, it can sometimes look like you accidentally goofed and just weren’t paying attention. This was deliberate. Yup!
Corbin and I went picking strawberries this season, and unlike last year, he actually ate all the ones he picked instead of squishing them. None of them made it in the bucket, but that’s ok. Quite a few made it on his shirt, so as far as photography outings go this wasn’t truly a winner. And I have to note: yes, he does actually have scars on his face, that’s not strawberry mess. The poor kiddo face-planted off the sofa into the carpet and skidded a bit. I seriously considered editing out the evidence but we can’t remove all the less-than-happy memories from our photographs. It’s not very truthful, and someday we might (might!?) actually laugh over the incident.
Hopefully the next time I post there will be brand-new baby pics of the new little one.
