Three of my special people – Tane (12), Levi (18 months) and Belle (4 – so, 28 in doggy years?) They looked so gorgeous all curled up on the sofa together, I wanted to remember. : )

Shot in natural light with my
Canon EOS 600D
Tv( Shutter Speed ) 1/50
Av( Aperture Value ) 4.0
ISO Speed 800
Lens EF-S18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS
Focal Length 28.0 mm
Edited in Photoshop CS5 – Topaz B&W Effects also used.

In between cooking, shopping, doing laundry, washing dishes, changing nappies and schooling my children I sometimes find a spare moment to doodle, draw or photograph something or someone. Those are the moments that keep me going, even if they are few and far between. Food for the artist mom’s soul.

    How fast they grow micklyn. This is a moment to be treasured – I can hear the silence.
    Thank you for sharing dear one ☺xx

  • : ) Thank you so much, Kira! They certainly do grow fast, sometimes I feel like it is rushing by and before I know it I will have a huge, echoing, empty house with all the wrong kind of silence… xx
