The chandelier

For months, a momentous event has been underway in our family: my in-laws are moving out of the home they built and have lived in for more than 40 years.

As you can imagine, my focus has been on capturing and documenting as much of the move as possible through photos. I will share more in future blog posts; for now, I would like to share this moment from the move.

Upon discovering that the dining room was empty, our daughter said, “Mom, I’ve always wanted to touch the chandelier! Is it OK?” I nodded, focused my camera on her as she slowly reached up to touch the chandelier, and captured her excitement.

An empty house can be a wonderful place of discovery and adventure, especially from a child’s perspective.
