Siblings Project – April

Siblings Project – April

Trying to get all three of my precious babies together is nigh on impossible unless it’s a ‘sit there and smile‘  moment which I personally hate photographing, I much prefer the natural moments that capture life how it was, in that moment in time. Which is why I have two shots for this month’s Siblings Project and it’s no coincidence that both are of thoughtful moments looking out to sea. There’s something so tranquil about looking onto the great beyond knowing that the land and life as you know it is behind you, carrying on as it does, while in-front there’s nothing to obstruct your thoughts, giving you 10 minutes to put everything out of your mind and just be, or as Bod for Tea would put it, your butterfly mind.

We often take a stroll down the road (as we call it) to take time away from the various screens we all obsess over. It’s something we’ve always done, rain or shine, and always will, to grab some fresh air. There’s never any protests or defiance. It’s just what we do. I’m sure by now the older two appreciate the effects of this quick refresh, returning and recharged for the next dose of WiFi.

So my photos for this month’s Sibling Project are of 2 sunny days, sat and stood in the company of their best friend (they don’t know that yet, but they will be I’m sure.) At ease, thoughtful and calm.

My boys, their brothers.

    I completely understand the “sit there and smile” moments, it’s usually the only way I can get all mine together… and the results are *meh*.
    Love the gazing out to sea 🙂

      Even when I do try it they end up fighting or pulling really stupid faces!

    Always be in on the look out Id say, theses were taken on my iPhone so not the best quality, but thats the beauty of camera phones, you never miss a thing.
