An ordinary moment

Daughter having breakfast. Brought to you by an ordinary moment. Ordinary yet lovely. In press photography they talk about having access. "f/8 and be there," they say. After all, being there is perhaps the most important part. f/8 is just some camera setting that would more or less get you a good image. As parents we have the best access to such moments, if we just slow down and observe. Of course it helps if you have a camera handy. So many times I miss these moments cuz we're in a rush. "Hurry up, we're going to be late for school!" Or going from soccer practice to music lesson to gymnastics to Chinese school... Who would've thought a bowl of oatmeal reflects such soft light?

  1. She's very pretty! Nice soft bounce off the bowl too. Sometimes capturing those kind of moments is effortless, unlike making most everthing else involving little people happen. (in a timely manner :))

    I used to have a great time doing pics like this when mom was at work on Saturday. Just me an the kids. It was great! You're a good dad!
