    ~ ...and in his mind he was at the ocean ~

    • Fla

      There are certain pictures I can never take. We turn on the TV and are smothered with cruelty and suffering and I don’t need to add to it. So I just photograph peaceful things. A vase of flowers, a beautiful girl. Sometimes, through a peaceful face, I can bring something important into the world. • Edouard Boubat, Paris, 1991.

      I'm trying to decide how much time as a photographer do I want to spend photographing children (i.e. what proportion of my overall business). Where I stumble is in figuring out how much time I need to spend with a family to get natural looking portraits like this. I rarely see photos that make me feel like this when looking through pro photogs websites. I DO see them in pics photogs take of their OWN children or when the kids are unaware.

    She told the seashell her story, whispering every secret her memories held. Then she laid the shell at the ocean's edge and watched the tide pick it up and carry it out to sea.

    Seeing this perfect, happy little face helps keep things in perspective. All that we feel we need, we don't, and all our worries are minuscule to the universe. Namaste.
