May Photo Challenge – 24. something new

I made this mask this morning to go with my son’s Super Giggle cape. Its not well made, but I love watching him adjust it on his face. For some reason it’s always wonky. Love it.

I am… loving the random mind of a 2 year old

My son E is 2 and he is an endless source of fascination to me. I love how his mind works. For instance he felt that the bathmat was the perfect place for this sticker. At first I thought “damn, I have to get a sticker off the bathmat, that’s annoying”, but when I think more about it I think he’s an artistic genius (most probably accidentally, but none the less!). I’d love to see a series of photos of children’s stickers in odd places, it could be really interesting and the right stickers could provide social commentary on the location…hmmmm thinking….. Anyway, here is E’s first comment to the world. haha

I am… at it again

All of my photos pretty much are taken on my iPhone, mainly because it’s always with me and anything I see that I think is interesting in some way gets photographed. Sometimes they work, others definitely not. Sometimes I get frustrated because I can’t capture what I want and it’s a bit limiting with no zoom. Anyway here’s a few of the photos I took in the last few days that I liked for whatever reason. (sometimes I have no idea why I even like a particular shot!)

I am… taking photos of my kids

While I was outside exploring my backyard this morning I came across a rock next to our shed that was essentially a shade of yellow and I was looking for something blue to put inthe photo. I turned around and stared at my son’s gumboots which were a very bright shade of blue and so I asked him to sit near the rock. That turned into him “posing” for me (running away from me while I chased him with the camera) and then I got a shot or two of W when he woke up. My favourite subjects.

I am… looking more closely at my backyard

While W had his morning nap, R, E & myself went out into our backyard for a cup of tea. R & E practically inhaled theirs as usual and not idle by nature, decided to go off composting leaving me to finish my cup of tea alone and ponder what to do next.

While checking my email on my iphone I looked up and noticed the pattern the moss growing on the roof tiles made and then I noticed a water droplet hanging from a succulent. I decided to grab my ‘professional photographer’s’ hat and equipment (my iphone – haha) and it turned into a photography session.

Here are a few of the pictures I took this morning.
