28 Sep Sisterly Best Shot
Posted at 17:16h in Uncategorized 31 Comments
As I observe my everyday life for the ‘a week in the life’ project, I’m seeing snapshots at every turn. Fleeting moments captured in still pictures. I’m seeing clearly moments like this.
My intention is to see my life for what it is; it’s absurdity, authenticity, hilarity, sincerity (the list goes on) and the goal is to capture the many facets of my life that will remind me of today. I know that one day I will miss the tiny toys all over the family room, giving baths, little mismatched socks, making heart shaped peanut butter and jelly and sitting through elaborate plays starring fairy princesses and magic spells in the living room.
What shot reminds you of today?
For a little inspiration be sure to click over to Shutter Sisters first thing Monday morning. The lovely Hula has shared something about capturing the world around us in a whole new way. Believe me when I tell you that she converted me instantaneously. I’m sure you’ll find her post and images irresistible.

I love this shot. I love how you just showed the younger sister sisters face, but the love of the older sister holding her. You are very fortunate.

I really like the expression on your youngest daughters face.
Thanks for helping us think of Today, instead of forging ahead to tomorrow.

That shot is so real. I feel like I am in your living room looking at your girls.

I can’t get over how beautiful this photo is Tracey! I think sisters are so amazing, and the drape of the arm over her shoulder, the princess attire…it is all just perfect!

Lovely moment captured of your beautiful daughters.
I, too, have caught some of summer’s waning beauty today . . .

Will I really ever miss the mismatched little socks? Oh, I guess so. 🙂
I love this sisterly moment.
I picked a few two-year-old moments to remember today.

Your shot really made me think about how important my sister are to me, and that lead me to the nagging question of if my J will have a sibling of any sort. I’m hoping, but I’m not holding out for anything. I guess his cousins will have to play sisters for a while 🙂

Life will leave without us if we let it. What a sweet shot. And I love the shots of the ttv. That Hula is definitely the master.

I had a couple Best Shots today. One that relates to my photography and the learning process I go through daily, and the other–a series–of my daughter with her latest obsession (and a funny story about it.)

..Tracey your photo is a true picture of everyday life in the world of sisters growing up ~ it brought back a flood of memories of those dress-up days gone by. many thanks for the way you share your life…
I marvel when we post something related without realizing it…

That’s such a lovely photo!
I’m participating for the first time 🙂
MandarooPosted at 18:09h, 29 September
I love publishing photos in my blog and being able to go back and capture the good feelings that the day evokes be it a day or a year later. I think that’s why we do it.
Great sister photo. Sometimes it’s hard to get mine both together in the same shot.
Here’s my BSM, a special moment for my Violet
