Corner view is a weekly Wednesday gathering, originally hosted by Jane, now by Francesca. A topic is given and you can see impressions; be it photographic or writerly in form, from around the world. Come see the world’s corner view via the links on the sidebar!
I think mostly my life is one big experiment! Seeing what works to make it through the day, then trying it again and adjusting it the next. Everything from how to respond to my child’s temper tantrum that is occuring in the center aisle of the grocery store because I said that no we cannot buy yet another pillow pet to keep the other pillow pets company while she is in school to how to help my kindergartener with learning disabilities and speech apraxia read her site words out loud in a clear enough fashion that her teachers can understand what she knows to how to get my third child to believe she can sleep the night without nursing because what we did the previous times doesn’t seem to apply to her. Then there is how to lose the baby weight once and for all, how to manage the surge of hair growth and graying appearing in my 40’s and how to how to articulate the thoughts in my head in a fashion that makes sense to the people I try to tell them to be it in a blog post, facebook status, email or conversation.
But by far, my favorite experiment- is how to shoot into the sun:
You are very good at shooting into the sun! Any tips?
Thanks Elizabeth! Time of day- shooting during the golden hours in morning and night, centering over the sun with the object and many, many clicks until one of the 2 dozen or so I took looks right 🙂
Oh, Cole … I have no answers … but I do no without question that you’re doing the mostest best and more … as far as the gray hair goes, please let me know the answer as soon as you find it! 🙂
Very pretty! I especially love the photo with the tiny white flowers. What a great effect!
Nice photos! And you articulated it all very well. Of course, I have to side with your daughter – you can NEVER have too many pillow pets 🙂
I never remember to check my wordpress reader. I forgot that I “followed” you months ago. Your words and photography are always true, and uplifting. I like your view on experimenting. So true. As we all know there is no life manual. Trial and error with a sense of humor and knowledge that there is something bigger out there bigger than ourselves.
