|Mandy as Madeleine – age 5|
Well, as many of you know, I find it difficult to remain totally silent when I post a photo. I guess that is why I am try to investigate a form of Journalistic Photography. I promise my narrative to be concise.
Yesterday was enrollment day in our school district. I waited until Mandy woke up (at 1:30PM!!) and we finally left for school around 2:00. Normally this is not something that I would consider blog worthy – but yesterday was the last time that I will take part in enrollment activities. I have been doing this annual event since 1991 when my eldest entered Kindergarten, and now, in 2010, I have enrolled my “baby” for her senior year.
I marvel at the passage of time. Some days seem to pass agonizingly s-l-o-w, and yet when I look with perspective over the years, they have all sped by so quickly. I think that is why I like to take photos of family memories – both the special occasions and the every day life – because what we feel is going to last forever, in reality, is gone in the blink of an eye.
Enjoy the journey!
