Fifty-Two Frames: Women

After attempting a lot of set-up shots that just didn’t work, I made a Hail Mary pass when, while juggling 3639846 things, I noticed Bebe standing at the window.

Week 28: Women

After three years of working from home, I went back to an office this week. The week that war threatens my kids, I’m no longer a 5 minute drive from them. I’ve been struggling with this fact, and then I remember my original intent: I can show them, my boy or girls, what a woman can do. A woman can work, and parent, and move, and care, and thrive, and love, all in one day, all in the same moment. Since having a second daughter four months ago, the kind of example I set them has been a constant thought. And then there are moments when I see how my older girl can move, can care, can thrive, can love, that I realize… she’s on the path to becoming that kind of woman, too.

Fifty-Two Frames: The Golden Ratio

This was a total shot in the dark for me. Week 26′s theme – which was a big ole photographic list of concepts like ‘The Golden Ratio’ ‘Fibonacci’ and ‘The Golden Spiral’ – way too resonant of mathematics to my brain.

I was so concerned with getting the theme right, that my picture loses.

I gotta be honest. I totally did not understand the Golden Ratio. I read a handful of pages about it, looked at plenty of images, and I still don’t get it. I think I’m overthinking it. So I kinda went with some kind of idea of what I thought it might be, which I still can’t even articulate.
