and tiny prisms scattered throughout
our home


When I mentioned I share my camera with a 2 yr old, I meant it literally.
These are photos she took just after she deftly snuck the camera into her bedroom. In the photo above you can see that she was also cuddling one of her favourite toys as she snapped away. She was probably teaching him how to do it!
I'm quietly happy for her to do this, I adore seeing things from her perspective and the happy accidents that occur, blurry or focussed, who cares! This was done on a day that she was really happy with her new shoes, but I can't tell if she planned to snap them or not!
I love the little bit of framed composition in the background of this one below - intentional or erm, not...

The sun's come to visit and I can't get enough of it.
Craving it, guzzling it down the lens.I'm smiling stupidly at little nooks and crannies, camera in hand to catch a flit of light. My very slow, bad camera that I share with my 2 yr old.. it's been to hell and back (the camera, that is).
So I know the photos are going to be of poor technical quality, but I don't care, I love every shot of light I capture on it. These little chinks of light that float in are always an unexpected treat. Fleeting, too. Here for just a minute stubbornly refusing an encore the next day when you try to revisit the moment.
Does a little glint of light somewhere make your heart flutter a bit?
It does mine. Always.

So here I am in blogland.. wondering where it will take me.

Life is full of change and this is a place I want to celebrate those changes.

Every day I make and play with my daughter. So here I want to keep it all to look back, to savour, to share and virtually meet with other people who must do just the same thing. I make, she makes, you make, we make..
