Quarantine, day who-the-heck-knows:
I spent this day looking for light, both literal and metaphorical. This collection looks to me like a really random mix of images, but it’s just my life, from the cheery morning light reminding me to fold laundry to an unplanned trip out of the house alone.
This set of images misses the fights and the dishes and the mess. It’s not that I want to hide the reality of four bickering children from you, but they were on top of me, elbowing me in the femur and poking me in the eye, yelling in my face and whispering with their mouths actually inside my ear. Grabbing the camera was not the first thing I considered. Anyhow, the minimum focus distance of the lens I had on is way farther away than any of my children were.
Even in a day that had every bit of its allotted crazy, there was so much light that culling this post down to a reasonable number of photos was hard. This was maybe half of the photos I initially chose.
