When I was in Minnesota in the middle of August I was fortunate enough to spend lots of time with my precious nephew. We spent a day together, along with my mom, which involved a walk to a pier for some rock throwing, eating popsicles, throwing plums into the garden, and playing with water. It was a blast to see this little guy constantly on the move, and I made it my goal to photograph our adventures that day.
I figured when all else fails, a double exposure will look interesting.
The older boy I nanny for was at school this morning, so the younger one and I had a nice quiet morning playing with play-doh. Normally when I am taking pictures he tries to jump in front of the camera and yells “cheese” but today he was so involved in his work that he was oblivious to me. I loved it.
I have been fairly stressed and anxious about the future and things like that lately. I know that I shouldn’t be, because my future is in the hands of the Creator. But it is so hard to completely give up that control. I hadn’t used textures in a while, but decided that it would be appropriate for this picture to give a sense of nostalgia.
