So, I ran across these photos while I was hunting for my next blog entry. I love these pictures of my older girls playing Twister. They're really funny and very entertaining people. One day they just decided to play the game and I, of course, thought it was a great opportunity to take pictures. What better way to practice shooting at different angles. I use times like this (when there's no pressure) to see what things look like from different perspectives. My teacher and friend, Walter Urie, once said to me that the only two things you can't change in a photo are the focus and the angle at which you shot it. Always keeping these things in mind I like push them both when I shoot. I am known to climb on tables, chairs, and walls. I also crawl around on the ground and shoot from my back.

Who wants to see life from the same direction we see it from every day? Make it new, make it interesting, twist it up!

I'm still here!

I wanted to quickly post that I'm still here and alive! I've been a bit under the weather and my biggest problem with this cold has been that I just can't think clearly. Rather than spend a post rambling on more than usual I have avoided posting.

I wanted you to know I'm still here and alive and I'll be back soon!

One of the things I do every morning is take my two younger daughters to school. Because of the traffic problems getting them in to the schools Emma actually sits in the car for over a half an hour every morning. During this time she reads, eats, plays with toys, and sometimes sings with me to the radio.

Two mornings ago I looked behind me in the quiet car and saw Emma doing something with her arms and hands that looked like the dance of a Geisha. She said, "Look Mommy, I'm making an animal!

I'll leave you with this little moment in time.
