Close-Ups of Children From Far Away

“A photograph is a secret about a secret.”

-Author Unknown-

journal entry:

Keepsake photographs happen in the most unexpected moments.  Glancing over as Keeley waited patiently for her cousin Clara to put on her shoes, I saw the sun going down on Keeley’s face.  I realized that I had been looking at the amber light just outside of the door.  When her face poked in, it was perfect. There is no doubt that a face is more relaxed when it thinks it is alone.   I love this age . . . when childhood is fitting a little small but grown-up things seem too big.  Sometimes my camera feels like skin.

“No matter how slow the film,

the spirit always stands still long enough

for the photographer it has chosen.”
