I tell you.. one of the most powerful tool I possess is my iPhone.
The ability to capture most anything instantaneously.. is, for me a kind of gratification I can't describe. I've always been a "picture-person" always wanting to capture the moment.
You give a girl a camera, she will take photos of anything and everything..
These photos illustrate my life in ways I can't otherwise describe. It's always meant a lot to me to "snap" a photo of my life..
I thought by now I'd given up on Project Life.. I may have slowed down on the excess amount of photos.. but I have not given up. If anything, it forces me to get creative on capturing life with as little photos as possible. Much like our Facebook status'.. we try to say what's on our mind, with as little words as possible.
But I could sit here and try to explain my drive up to my hubby's work.. the dense fog, the frozen trees, the tinge of grey everywhere, and that desolate feeling you get when you get up there, cause it's smack in the middle of nothing.. I'm not sure if you'd picture this:
Then there's my morning chaos.. a sink full of the dishes, that the kids tossed while heading out the door.
Simple photo.. but glad I caught it because it is something I want to remember.. a time when the house was.. busy.
Again.. with the technology these days, you really have no excuse for not taking a photo :)
Breakfast with my girls.
Oh gosh.. I love these girls.
I'm still heartbroken that her family has decided to take on some new adventures and leave Alaska (before I do).
I am in complete denial.. and I refuse to go to her house to see how much she's painted or worst to see boxes packed. Nope, I will not have it.
Downtown Photo.. probably one of my faves today.
From the fog, to the pedestrian crossing, the cropped building, and the car passing by.
That's downtown Anchorage in a nutshell today.
I went to drop hubby some lunch.. I just had to capture him in "stealth-ninja-mode"
And as bitter cold as it was, well below zero... we played outside. He doesn't mind it until his paws start bothering him. We warm up a bit and head back out again.. This is enough to make for a good afternoon nap.
Which I have to say, I've been taking with him quite a bit this week.
I blame the extremely cold weather.. I mean all you wanna do is snuggle under the sheets.
