I saw this medallion from the Rusted Chain and thought it was just so clever!
I love photography! I love capturing precious moments that would other wise become lost in the recesses of our mind. I think it is the Buddhist Monks who won't have their pictures taken for fear that such an act will cause them to lose a piece of their soul. I think it does just the opposite. I think a picture can preserve a piece of who you are and tell a brief story to future posterity.
With that said . . . here is a stage of my little boy that I always want to remember. His superhero phase. These pictures were taken on a deeply overcast day. The clouds in the sky were dark and heavy and very threatening. In other words, it was perfect lighting!
I did not pose this boy at all. I told him: "You know, most people didn't even know who Superman really was because in the day time he wore a hat, a white shirt and a tie and worked as a newspaper man." After saying that, I couldn't stop the boy from becoming a superhero!
