Summer is brutal here in Tucson and sadly for us, we spend the better part of it indoors. I hate that about this city, I LOVE being outside! However, when November rolls around, I’m positively in love with the mild “winter” here. Double-edged sword I suppose…
Now that I’m shooting daily with my 365 project, which I love, I’ve become even more excited about capturing the day-to-day happenings in our household. It will be such a wonderful thing to show my children once they’re grown. Besides, my sewing, knitting, crocheting skills are pretty dire, so I guess I need to make up for that somehow.
Recently, I’ve found a ton of awesome photographers who have shot a “Day in the Life” project in addition to their 365. I knew I wanted to do one, but secretly wanted to wait for a super abnormally exciting day to document.
Then I realized, not only is it the dead of summer here in the Old Pueblo, but our day-to-day just isn’t all that exciting normally. Aaaannd, I did want it to reflect who we are now, even if it’s totally bland and full of fits, Legos, snacking, dishes, coffee, computer, napping, last-minute grocery trips, water-play and pee accidents (and poo too, let’s face it – aren’t you glad I didn’t include that image) Ha!
So here it is. Boring. Real. Us. Don’t fall asleep! 😉
You must see DeAnna McCasland’s “Day in the Life” series. It is GREAT and after seeing hers, I knew I needed to do my own! http://
