Creativity Challenge 3/12: Perspectives

April 2, 2013

I had the stepladder out for this month's project, intending to shoot from above and capture the symmetry of unruly pigtails, busy fingers, and little piggies peeking out. But when she paused to think up her "rhymin' words" and began to sway, I knew what was coming... and where my vantage point needed to be instead.

So often, she's blissfully unaware that I'm watching as she composes these grand ballades, carries on with imaginary friends, or choreographs dance moves with her reflection in the sliding glass door. Not wanting to ruin the moment, I rarely stop to pull out the camera. 

But sometimes you gotta chance it.  Because when I'm old and gray, I want to remember the many facets of this little girl's big personality, and how much she made me smile every.single.day...

My very own Ode to Joy. ♥
