Happy Memorial Day! Remember what the day is set aside for, in addition to family time.
He’s growing up so fast.
One moment he was a newborn in my arms and the next he is a laughing 7-year old, making my days brighter simply by his existence.
I am making the most of every moment we have together, alone, these next five months, because in October things will change, our dynamic will change. I know it will be a good change when we welcome a new member to our family, but it will still be a change.
Be sure to follow circle by visiting Chasing Tydes.
This post is part of my 10 on 10 project, which is a project I do with other photographers around the world. It features at least ten photos from one day’s events, one day a month.
Be sure to check the end of this post for a link to the blog of a talented photographer.
Maybe you have Corningware in your kitchen cupboards right now and if you do, there is a good possibility they were made, or at least the idea of them was conceived at Corning Incorporated in Corning, N.Y. In 1951, Corning Incorporated gifted the Corning Museum of Glass to the community and the nation to educate them about how glass is made and used in our everyday life.
According to the museum’s website: “The Corning Museum of Glass cares for and displays the world’s best collection of art and historical glass. When you visit, you’ll see more than 3,500 years of history displayed in the Glass Collection Galleries, from the glass portrait of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh to contemporary sculpture made in glass.”
I live 50 minutes away from the museum and sadly have only visited twice in my life and once briefly for when I worked at the newspaper there.
We visited this week and the lighting is a definite challenge. The exhibits are interesting, the glass blowing show is definitely worth the visit, and the beautiful artwork is inspiring (especially for a fellow artist).

Winter. It goes on an on and on and . . . well, you get the “drift”
Being stuck in Northern Pennsylvania during winter is not always fun. It’s a bit of a drag really. The sun is limited and heavy cloud cover is prevelant. By February my depression is setting in and my motivation is non-existant.
To try to keep my motivation going I get involved in photography classes through The Bloom Forum and try to get outside even if it means in the snow.
This past week our area got hit with 15 inches of snow in about a 12 hour period, maybe a bit less. We expected at least 10 but this was a bit extreme.
A couple days later we got hit with a few more inches and decided to head outside for a snowball fight and some fort building, after some battle preparations with General Grevious and the Power Rangers of course. Then we capped the day off with a warm bath.

I was looking through images to add to my portfolio when I found a set from a summer day two years ago with my son, in our backyard. We’d had rain earlier in the day and he was enjoying sliding and jumping in the mud and on a dirt pile we had. And I just let him. Because I am one cool mom.
It was a blast to watch and capture.
These are the moments I love to capture: children just being children. And this is also what I mean about storytelling photogr
aphy. These photos tell a story of a moment in a day but also moments in my son’s life.
