Montreal Street Photography, III
Kris was in Toronto for a couple of days this week so things slowed down. The weather got warmer so we walked home from school and things slowed way down.
It felt as good as it looked:
I also repurposed our dress-up feather boas and punched holes through plastic eggs to bring a little spring to our doorstep …
but what I mainly did was Street Photography:
I’m already finding the need to curb (sorry) this new interest/passion. Like the phone, my camera can easily become omnipresent when I’m with my kids and instead of being with them, I am constantly scanning for photographic opportunity. These are not the memories I want to create. I’m a stay-at-home-parent however – I’m always with my kids – so can’t I also get mine? I’ve been striking the balance using simple ratios: I’m with Farrah full-time so when she and I are out, I bring my camera. Arlo goes to school, so when we are out, I leave the camera. This is math, no? Whatever it is it works, memories intact.
Thanks for looking out my window. I hope you have a good weekend balancing all that you do.
