Funnily enough I don’t consider myself to be a photographer – that’s for the talented folks who actually know what their camera’s do.

My illustrations & designs are over here :

    A great self portrait here-nothing like recording the moments most parents go through.Somehow your description and shot make it all that more tangible.

  • Thanks Glenn. I find it always helps me if I do something like this. Some people keep a diary, some people go fishing, others shop for shoes :) I like to make self portraits. It helps somehow…..
    I did get some great first day of school shots too. You know the ones that we all have in the family album.

    You have the heart of an artist …. and your children are blessed to have your ongoing influence in their lives. Embrace this moment for gentle reflection … your way will unfold for you.
    The doorway is an opportunity which is wide open .. and not ready to slam in your face .., and there is open space in front of you …
    And … from one who has taken on many roles … we are more than the roles we undertake … far far more!!

  • Oh Judy, you have such a beautiful way with words. And yes, I know this is not the end, rather the beginning of something new; I guess I’m a little sad to let go of the last 5 years. But moving forward is exciting….. I’m just a little bewildered right now.
    Thanks so much for your words of encouragement.

    Aww Rosemary, sorry you’re feeling a bit lost! I’d say it’s a good thing you feel this way and your children are lucky to have a parent that misses them so much…many dont!
    On a selfish note.. i look forward to lots more Rosemary Scott artwork to admire and use for inspiration.
    Keep smiling you x

  • Well you are just so sweet! I’m going to be just fine, I’ll feel sorry for myself for a while & find a new way to see my place in the world.
    All is good.
    Love your SP’s btw….. will head over soon for a closer look :))

    I can relate to this : I’ve never left mine (twins) to a babby sitter or family member (anyway they’re all at 6000+ kms !)… and they just turned nine !
    no kindy either ! so the first day at school (in USA, they were speaking French !) was kind of super-extra-hyper weird ! it took me some time to adjust !!!
    at the beginning, the best, IMHO, is not to stay at home ! go out, possibly with the camera, indulge yourself : the rest will come…
    great illustration for the purpose…
    my best, francis.

  • Oh Francis, you do know how I feel. It’s just the weirdest feeling. I keep turning around to ask Reilly if he wants something or suddenly wonder where he is. Driving anywhere is a nightmare because I keep thinking I’ve left them in shops & keep turning back to check their seats. There’s this overwhelming feeling that I’ve left them behind. It’s only day 3…. I’ll get used to it.

    may I add that the choice of centering the subject in the composition is perfect here !

  • Thanks for the feedback about the composition. I was happy with it, feeling like it made the point I was going for.
    I actually shot myself in lots of positions illustrating boredom & being alone. I might upload another at some stage, not really sure.
