I'm supposed to be packing. Instead that task is being avoided by posting three photos that have nothing and everything in common.
My photo making excursions are most often taken on my own, wandering around observing and capturing. More of a quiet and contemplative process. And then there are the photos made when I am also enjoying the company of others.
The photos above were taken during different outings with camera buddies, my husband and friends respectfully. The difference in the two types of photos...one has unseen laughter and fun carried in the fibers and inks of the finished results. Those are the photos that make me smile every time I look at them. Reminders of treasured moments.
I'm so excited to head down the road tomorrow for a few days with folks who all enjoy playing with fabric, paint, yarn, threads and any number of other things in Portland, OR. It will be wonderful to rev up the right side of my brain mid-week. And while I'm there, I'll be making a few more pictures with unseen laughter. Hope you will be making some time for laughter this week as well.
