Little Things Thursday

Do you love weeds? I think most photographers do. The grocery store by my house has an empty lot that sprouts golden weeds each spring and fall.  I always try to make the most of them before the city comes to mow them down.  I have been trying to create time to get to them for the last two weeks and I finally made it over last night.  I have a sneaking suspicion I just made it.

A face wash and a quick outfit change and we were off.  He agreed to 5 minutes.

While I have you I want to wish all of you ladies out there a very Happy Mother’s Day! Even if you aren’t officially a mother, you are nurturing others and you are seen!

Let’s see your week on Little Things Thursday!

  7. I live in the country and still can not find the elusive yellow weeded field/lot – or at least one I could get to and photograph safely. These are excellent in every way.

    Happy Mother’s Day to you as well.

  8. Hehehehe – yes, all that color certainly makes a great backdrop. He’s so adorable. I was just looking at old posts – from just 18 months ago when you guest posted around Christmas. He was so tiny – incredible to see how much they have grown. It’s been such a pleasure to watch your family through the years – makes me smile.

  20. I always enjoy the way you photograph your children. I am more of a catch-as-catch can photographer but it’s nice to see the way you set things up. I hope you have a happy mother’s day.
