Two things have been going through my mind for quite some time now.
Thing #1. I am feeling HUGELY uninspired lately....AND I HATE IT. I have barely picked up my camera in the last 2-3 weeks. We all go through lulls like this but my creative pores are completely clogged right now and its so frustrating. I look at every ones images for "365" and they are great but I feel like my "eye" is sleeping lately. Every picture I take is blah to me.
That being said....
Thing #2. Have you noticed I have been into Ella's hands and feet recently? I was laying in bed one night and out of the blue the phrase "ELLAments of Life" came into my head. I saw images flash before me with all sorts of ideas on how to use this phrase. And again.....(refer to Thing #1).....I am at a loss. But one thing it has done for me is be so much more aware of her hands and feet....Sounds weird, I know. Not that I don't love them and look at them and kiss them everyday anyways, but everything she does with them, I just want to capture.
When she was a baby, my Mom used to say to me, "Look at those hands Jo. They are made to do great things." A little quirk she had when she was younger was that she used her middle finger as her pointing finger. She touched everything with her middle finger. She doesn't do that anymore, but it is still cool to watch her little hands and feet learn how to work.....Even at almost 4 years old.
So I guess I need to just pick up my butt (or my camera in this case) and start shooting again and hopefully things will fall back in place.......It would suck not to capture absolutely all of the "ELLAments of Life".
