This weeks topic for Sunday Scribblings is "Real Life". If you're in the mood for some juicy writing, do visit here.
I have a sweet companion that inspires me to see real life through their eyes...or shall I say lens? I always bring it with me in tow and if I happen to rush out of the door without it, I feel a sense of loss as my day passes me by.
My camera has motivated me to watch more closely, to pay attention to moods, facial expressions, colors, shading, movement, conversation...LIFE, really.
Today, while I was starring at all of the buttons and knobs, my husband was walking up the steps to the loft, being a complete goof (as always). As he turned the corner to walk towards me, laughing (at his own joke) and just before I joined him in a fit of giggles, I moved my camera up to his face and pushed the button.
Well...lookie here! His fresh, beautiful, face of laughter (above). I see this every day...but now I am able to share it with others. This is my life. This is our life together, documented.
So, real life for me lately has been camera around neck, walking the streets, squatting down to a flower on the side of the road, laying flat with my belly on a cold, hardwood floor, being the one behind the scenes in a crowded room, waiting for a wave to crash up on a rock, dancing while snapping, anticipating the perfect lighting, one eye closed, one eye open, hands gently gripping...
capturing laughter, documenting real life.
