I was going back through photos from the last few years last night and saw a pattern emerge. Actually I saw lots of patterns, this particular one just happened to stand out.
One of my favorite places to take photos in our current home is right outside Simon's room, looking in through the doorway. I really like the perspective of being outside and looking in and I love how the doorway frames the content of each photo.
There have been so many moments over the last four years in this house when I have silently stood outside Simon's room, peeked inside, and been gifted by one sight or another. Watching him play with trains or cars, watching him sitting on his bed as he learned to read, watching him play legos and zoom Star Wars ships, watching him jump on his bed, watching him grow, and now watching him play with Anna (or just watching her as she ventures into his territory).
Bringing this series of photos together, all the same view from different time periods, tells a wonderful story of growth and love.
Do you have a favorite spot in your house to take photos? Is there a story you could tell with those photos?
