16/365 | a quiet moment

some days, a great image comes easily.  and others, i really have to work at it.  that's what i've learned so far from shooting my project 365.  and today, was one of those days.  i shot different scenes from different angles in different light and nothing looked right.  so i set my camera down and went to the kitchen for a snack.  when i came back, my son had curled up in a chair and was watching tv, the light from the front window framing his face perfectly.  

as photographers, we're always looking for that perfect moment.  sometimes, we're looking too hard.  sometimes, we're trying to create something that isn't real.  sometimes, we have to step back and let the image come to us...


  1. I know exactly what you mean! Sometimes I think I try to hard to get the "right" picture, and I just need to wait for the right moment.

  2. This is perfect! I've been struggling with the same thing, although even my best photos don't turn out this great.
