The week in review: swearing preschoolers, more rain, and a little local history

When I got back from picking up a few groceries one day this week my 11-year old niece let me know that my daughter, who will be four in October, had been placed in time out while I was gone for taking the Lord’s name in vain. My niece didn’t call it that because my niece hasn’t been brought up in the church so … Read More The week in review: swearing preschoolers, more rain, and a little local history

Did you miss it? Catching up for the week…

In case you missed it, I had some fun posts this week and last, featuring a chef, a photographer and an author and some ramblings from me.

Week in Review

Each week I’ll be posting images from the previous week that were my favorite, or I simply liked, or that define the previous week’s activities.  

The week in focus | Elmira NY Child Photographer

Last week we had a mix of nice and rainy days but Little Miss didn’t care what the weather was because she rain outside to slide on her new slide no matter what the sky was spitting. It’s a inexpensive slide meant for toddlers but even her brother found a way to have fun with it, by leaping off it and attempting 360 turns … Read More The week in focus | Elmira NY Child Photographer

Why I photograph | Pennsylvania Photographer

Recently I’ve been watching photography documentaries and reading about various photographers and why they photograph. Consequently, I’ve been thinking about why I fell in love with photography It’s pretty simple. I wanted to document life, my life and the lives of those around me. I wanted to capture a person how they really were in a particular moment. The best thing about a picture … Read More Why I photograph | Pennsylvania Photographer

Finding joy. Even in winter.

I’m not a fan of winter. Winter depresses me. It is cold, obviously, void of sun,most of the time and it is long and dreary and yucky and I hate it — so there. I thought I would have longer before it stretched out its bony fingers but alas, snowflakes started  falling this past weekend, two weeks before Halloween. Yuk. Before those flakes made … Read More Finding joy. Even in winter.

The Week in Focus | Sept. 28 to Oct. 8

I am very behind on my weekly favorites posts so I thought I’d just do some catching up for this week. Last week my daughter had her first birthday, so of course it was a somewhat busy and crazy few days, but also a lot of fun.
