I’m feeling nostalgic this morning and have been spending the last hour looking through photos of our girls from the past few years. I am grateful that I’ve captured so many images of the girls at school, in sports, with their cousins, and especially in the normal everyday moments of their lives.
I connected with this photo today, just as I did with our daughter in the moment I took this photo more than three years ago.
Photographing our Christmas tree from new perspectives creates magical results.
In my constant search for interesting light to photograph, I noticed the window light, reflected beautifully from the white drawing paper to my daughter’s face.
Here is an unusually calm moment in our dining room, before we start our busy day.
Today, the girls and I started our day by blasting the radio and playing in the backseat of the new car. We’re squeezing in fun where we can as summer break comes to an end.
Beauty can be found in unlikely locations; I discovered this reflection in a puddle at the parking lot of our local grocery store.
With my camera at my side, I set out for downtown, hoping to find a vintage car or two to photograph. As luck would have it, I came across a 1950 Ford F1 truck (parked in perfect light!) and began photographing the details.
I soon noticed incredible reflections of color and
was surprised at how clearly the details of my surroundings seemed to jump right off of the black paint of the truck.
I heard a car coming, stepped aside, and continued to admire the reflections. Through my viewfinder, I watched a new reflection move up the side of the truck. A new reflection, which provided me with more to admire
and to focus on.
Another vintage Ford (from the 1930s) parked right next to me!
This season, I am blessed to have family and friends close by, many dinners to attend, and time to enjoy!
While taking photos for a project titled, “Up,” my daughter and I found our reflections.
Today, I’m thinking about my love for photographing vintage cars.
Here is a beauty from 1957,
a Chevy Impala SS,
and an old Chevy truck in the fall morning light in my neighborhood.
I love the colors, details,
and the passion vintage car owners express for their cars.
And, every now and then, cars provide an amusing location for self portraits as well!
