The Business of Play

This past week I had an opportunity to watch my two nieces.  My kids were thrilled that I had some new subjects to aim my lens at! I so enjoyed watching the girls play and figuring out ways to capture these carefree moments of childhood.  As I snapped away, trying to master my nemesis of shutter speed and aperture, I had the realization that one of my happiest places was behind the lens of the camera…even at it’s most frustrating moments.

I have never felt very artistic, but have always admired those who were, and wished just a little that I had more talent in that arena.  However as I’ve picked up my camera, I feel like it is as if God has given me a window into places of me I didn’t even know existed.  A creativity that is raw and untrained, but there.  As I uncover that part of me I can’t help but be grateful for the discovery of a way to creatively express myself.  I’m not sure where this path will take me, but for now I am enjoying the journey.

In other news…headed to the mountains for a couple days to see some fall colors!  I can’t wait to play with my family and my camera there!  I am not sure of my internet availability so pics may be delayed. Stay tuned!
