1/52



Georgia inspired me to take a photo every day this year. That's 366 photos (more, actually, because one photo is never enough). I''ll blog a portrait of the children once a week, hence 1/52. I could post a photo every day but that would be adding another job to the list and frankly, I don't need the pressure.
I take photos to illustrate my words. Writing will always be my chosen art but I find, when I'm writing professionally, that sometimes the deadlines, editorials and all-day-typing turns the creativity into a chore. A sad truth. I like composing a story through an image. Light flares are nice too.

One thing I've learned about taking photos - you only get better if you take your camera with you wherever you go. 


Poet is teething and likes to chew her toes.

Che cut his toe after a vigorous game of tennis.
The foot theme was unintended.

  11. Hey Jodi,
    I just saw your profile come up through Georgia's group 'Documenting Delight'and I recognised you straight away. I'm Amber Hamilton (well new last name now;) ), our Mums used to work together.
    Just thought I would stop by and say that your blog is divine. Truly, your words, your pictures, your babes, your home...all just beautiful.
    I have been looking at your posts and have been inspired already. Just lovely stuff.
    OK, starting to sound a wee bit stalker-ish so I will taddle off now.
