One of the many gifts of blogging is that invariably, you begin to notice things – little things. Framed in the viewfinder, the simple ordinary becomes sacred. The camera has become a constant companion on our daily adventures and I’m finding fresh eyes for her world. And as I visit you, I realize that you’re doing the same. Woven together these images tell a grand story of innocence and adventure. My hope is that this collaborative will capture the details – her tousled curls on the pillow…the dimples on his muddy hands. It’s a place to celebrate “the fine print” – things that are often missed in the snapshots from birthday parties and family vacations. Things you’ll want to remember twenty years from now. And I hope you’ll visit often, share your images, and gain inspiration from others.
There is just one simple rule, meant to stretch your creativity. No faces allowed. This means that your photos can not contain eyes, noses or mouths. (After much deliberation, I decided that ears are perfectly acceptable.)
Periodically, I will highlight a handful of favorites from this pool so please realize that by posting you are granting me permission to do so. If you blog, please include your blog address in the description of your photo or in your Flickr profile so that I can provide a link back from my post. I look forward to reading your chapters of Childhood: The Fine Print.
