Finding Extra (in the) Ordinary :: Day 1
After finding a spark of inspiration, I decided to go forward with my personal photography challenge -- capturing something extraordinary in my otherwise ordinary day. I'd like to do this as a photo-a-day, but admittedly it's a bit ambitious. But what's a challenge without it being challenging, right? So here are a few from Day 1. It was unusually warm yesterday so Jax and I were outside playing with the melting snow and ice. Pretty ordinary, but certainly not through the eyes of a 3-year-old! He found a sheet of ice in the back of his yellow toy dump truck and we both examined and admired each tiny detail.
I love how the sunlight played with the cracking surface of the ice... and the gentle gradation of colors shining through is so beautiful to me. I'm happy I snapped these photos before I (fumble fingers) dropped the ice and shattered it.
We then built a tiny snowman. One arm was three times longer than the other, but he was a happy little guy. I say "was" because by the end of the afternoon, all the snow on our deck was gone, and all that was left of our little friend was a tiny pile of twigs.
Here he is with Jax. :) So what's the moral of the story? Enjoy the little things before they're gone. ;)
Have a beautiful Saturday, everyone!
