In the spirit of reviving my poor, neglected blog, I have joined a small group of photographers in the undertaking of a monthly photo challenge for the year of 2012. For each month, a color theme has been designated, and on the 26th of that month, every photographer in the group will post their themed images. Instead of being presented with only my perspective of that month’s theme, you are presented with the perspective of the entire group, as at the bottom of our posts, we link to the next person in our circle of photographers, so that if you choose, you can keep clicking and see our very different visions of the same theme! Fun, right?
The theme for November is Brown and/or Yellow.
Since every child of mine has inherited my brown eyes (except theirs are all decked out with THICK lashes!), I went with just BROWN. A couple of weeks ago, after opening his school pictures and thinking they just did NOT capture his cute little personality, and his outfit that day really did, I asked Will if he would let me take some pictures of him, since he looked so cool. Of course, at his age, he’s getting to the point that he’s not delighted to pose for me.. Or if he does, he wants it to be in his way, but I find after I let him have a few “his way”, I usually get a few “my way”, and some giggles in between. Initially I was only planning to post the close-up of my youngest and his funny face. But then I looked through the rest of the images from our little session, and thought I’d post all of my favorites. He just has so MUCH personality, and he’s growing like a little weed. Enjoy!
And there you have it! Next month’s theme is pretty much wide open – Red and/or Green and/or Silver and/or Gold!
