NUMBER OF PHOTOS FOR THURSDAY | 20
As usual, as the week progresses I tend to take less photos. I’ve come to recognize it simply as part of the process.
The rest of my week will be documenting what my life’s like when my kids aren’t here in the house with me. It’s part of the reality of my story.
Over time it’s gotten easier (and I often welcome the break) but I’m still learning to really embrace the time to reconnect with myself. I miss them when they aren’t here but I’m thankful that they get to spend time with their Dad who loves them so very much.
It’s different, as many of you know, to document your life without kids as leading characters in the story. There’s no better or worse, it’s just different and to be honest I think it’s more challenging. For me it means I need to switch gears – there’s not a moving target I can always point my lens at and it can feel very repetitive.
But rather than looking at it as repetitive or boring or not how I want it to be or not enough, I’m looking at it knowing that I need to capture it as it is for what it is right now. How can I represent this piece of my life visually? What can I take photos of that I miss because I’m focusing on capturing my kids? How do I fill my time? What other things have become important?
Here’s a look at my Thursday:
