If you'll be so kind as to visit my friend Sosae's blog, you can enter to win a giveaway for something in my shop - you get to choose. Plus I say a few things. A lot of things, really. I'm a talker. Yep.
So we made our hummingbird food (4 parts water, 1 part sugar, dissolved. No honey. No artificial color.) and hung it in the backyard on a shepherd's hook. But I didn't take any pictures of it. I had yarn to photograph and then V actually let me photograph her in a way that made me happy. These days she's not usually so cooperative (which is fine; I understand).
She will often happily let me photograph the silly faces she makes or with something in front of her face.
Sometimes I can catch her without something in front of her face, though.
And occasionally I'll catch her just being her.
Those are my favorite shots.
Sometimes ... oh so rarely ... she'll give me a smile and I'll snap it quickly for as long as it lasts.
Those are my favorite times.
And then I'll take pictures of whatever she wants me to photograph, so we can print it out later for her collection.
I'm already seeing her face change into what it's going to look like next. I don't so much see it in real life, but will catch a glimpse of it in a photo.
It fascinates me.
