Sugar and Spice

by dee on September 17, 2009

While I’m in surgery today, I thought I would just share a photo.  I have these grand dreams of one day being able to say I’m a photographer, but I have a lot to learn and a long road of practicing ahead of me before I ever get to that level (not to mention the fact that I can’t afford the equipment).  Some days I wonder if it is worth all the time and effort or if I’ll ever even get there.  Then I take a shot like this – one that just happens without even trying – and I think that maybe someday that dream will come true.


My niece Caitlin walked right into this shot and I clicked at just the right moment.  Sure she has food on her lips.  And I’m sure some Photoshop gurus could probably touch it up a bit, but I think it is perfect as it is, straight out of the camera.  This photo is the very essence of who Caitlin is – sugar, spice, and a little mess to round it out.  I’ll always remember where we were and what we were doing in that moment.  That is what makes photography so much fun.
