Sisterly Best Shot



As I observe my everyday life for the 'a week in the life' project, I'm seeing snapshots at every turn. Fleeting moments captured in still pictures. I'm seeing clearly moments like this.

My intention is to see my life for what it is; it's absurdity, authenticity, hilarity, sincerity (the list goes on) and the goal is to capture the many facets of my life that will remind me of today. I know that one day I will miss the tiny toys all over the family room, giving baths, little mismatched socks, making heart shaped peanut butter and jelly and sitting through elaborate plays starring fairy princesses and magic spells in the living room.

What shot reminds you of today?

For a little inspiration be sure to click over to Shutter Sisters first thing Monday morning. The lovely Hula has shared something about capturing the world around us in a whole new way. Believe me when I tell you that she converted me instantaneously. I'm sure you'll find her post and images irresistible.

What a perfect post for the photos I got today. I even managed to get these typs of shots every once in a while with my teen boys.

Joanna said...

I love this shot. I love how you just showed the younger sister sisters face, but the love of the older sister holding her. You are very fortunate.

Here is my best shot

I really like the expression on your youngest daughters face.
Thanks for helping us think of Today, instead of forging ahead to tomorrow.

I can't get over how beautiful this photo is Tracey! I think sisters are so amazing, and the drape of the arm over her shoulder, the princess attire...it is all just perfect!

My BSM is of our very own little superhero.

I just LOVE this shot! Those are the kinds of moments that you just soak up for all they are worth. Absolutely beautiful, Tracy.

Golightly said...

What a sweet shot. I love it and everything it represents about siblings. Wonderful.

Here's my best shot - connecting with old (and new) friends.

emily said...

What a nice memory you've captured with your picture.

Here is what I had to share today.

Anna said...

Will I really ever miss the mismatched little socks? Oh, I guess so. :)

I love this sisterly moment.
I picked a few two-year-old moments to remember today.

How To Charm Me

Julie said...

Your shot really made me think about how important my sister are to me, and that lead me to the nagging question of if my J will have a sibling of any sort. I'm hoping, but I'm not holding out for anything. I guess his cousins will have to play sisters for a while :)

Here's my BSMs.

Blueberry said...

HipMomma said...

Life will leave without us if we let it. What a sweet shot. And I love the shots of the ttv. That Hula is definitely the master.

I had a couple Best Shots today. One that relates to my photography and the learning process I go through daily, and the other--a series--of my daughter with her latest obsession (and a funny story about it.)

..Tracey your photo is a true picture of everyday life in the world of sisters growing up ~ it brought back a flood of memories of those dress-up days gone by. many thanks for the way you share your life...

I marvel when we post something related without realizing it...

I'm participating for the first time :)

Mandaroo said...

I love publishing photos in my blog and being able to go back and capture the good feelings that the day evokes be it a day or a year later. I think that's why we do it.

Great sister photo. Sometimes it's hard to get mine both together in the same shot.

Here's my BSM, a special moment for my Violet
