p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · The joy in small things


I got home from work last night and crept into my daughter's bedroom to see if she was still awake to say goodnight, only to find she had smuggled her battery-powered candle into bed with her. She was fascinated by the light, and for a different reason, so was I.

The image is a real reminder to me to take the time to find joy in the simple things in life and not let myself get overwhelmed by the speed of the rest of the world.

C+C always welcome.

A lovely shot mate. My little ones love those candles too... They always get them at carrols by candle light.

In the end, the small and simple things matter most. A spouse to love, a child to raise, a roof to sleep under, a meal to eat, and a smile to share. Thanks for the reminder.

Wonderful shot. Just a couple of questions. Do you always have your camera ready with you even saying goodnight to her everyday? How did you catch the special moment without interrupting her? Thanks

Heh, yeah, good question.

I don't have my camera every night. I just peeked into her room and saw her, so before she saw me I left and went and got my camera and tripod ready with the settings I thought I might need. Then I went back to her room and noted her pose from the door before I crept back into her room. This did disturb her but I just had to assure her quickly that it was ok for her to have her candle before she got upset and that I was going to take a photo. I asked her to bring it back out from under the blanket like she had before, and she just watched it for a few seconds while I tweaked the camera. She is used to me having a camera so she wasn't worried about me, she just became interested with the candle once more and her look of concern of being caught turned into a smile of fascination again which allowed me to capture a photo.

I then traded her the candle for a tiny chocolate drop, gave her a kiss, took my camera and left her to fall asleep, still happy.
