sometimes i don’t pick up my camera and take pictures because i look at all my friends who shoot and get so discouraged because they pull of the perfect pictures. today, i just shot. and this is what i got. i shot pretty slow because we don’t have good light in our house and it was raining. the picture is soft, but i will remember this moment for a long time. maddie doesn’t often oblige me with an honest look at the lens. it’s always filled with sass or silliness. today she looked at me with honesty. it’s not the perfect, sharp picture but the memory will stay with me for a long time.
