"A photograph can be an instant of life captured for eternity that will never cease looking back at you." ~Brigitte Bardot
"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever...it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything." ~Aaron Siskind
Yesterday morning I spent almost an hour just sitting in the morning sunshine (just me and my camera), watching the iris blooms slowly open to the day. Yes...I had a list a mile long of "things to do", but I didn't want to miss this miracle of nature. I wanted to capture this brief period in time and hold on to it. I feel the same way when I take pictures of my kids. The moments are fleeting and time passes quickly. I want to savor the ordinary, everyday times of our life.
