Today: A Photo



Communal Global is hosting their first photo contest, and I'm throwing one of my favorite recent shots into the mix. (Gasp!)

More and more of our days and evenings are being spent in our backyard or walking around our neighborhood enjoying the fresh, spring air, and this photo captures one of our most common daily happinesses: zooming down the slide in as many different, exciting ways as possible.

This picture happened mostly by accident, when the falling light and camera settings and Mia's sweet smile all became aligned at the exact moment the shutter clicked. I love the blue in her eyes, the blue in the slide, and the hint of a sunset in the background. Basically, I'm in love with this photo, and I hope you are, too!

  3. SO CUTE! I love accident photos---that is the only time I get good ones! :-) The logo/banner I use for my shop was a total accident photo. It happened when I was taking my camera out of my purse and snapped a pic of my nose and the ceiling.
