This month, we went to a local Eco garden. It was a simple garden to walk and explore with my girls. Really, it was just to get out of the house for a while on Saturday as the rest of the family were busy with sport and friends. But as we walked around, I really noticed the closeness of my two youngest. They are physically, and emotionally close. They are almost 4 years apart in age, but we treat them almost like twins. I buy similar clothes, and they share a bedroom. They spend a lot of time together, and thankfully they want to. They have similar friends, and even play together as school. They fight, and they are most upset when one offends the other. They suffer through the hurt of their other siblings, but it is when they hurt each other that I see a real sadness. It is a very unique, and beautiful relationship.
As we explored, I was also working on a challenge. I am involved in a group called Click Clique Project. Once a fortnight, we partner with a photographer from around the world. We get to know them a little better, and we participate in challenges to spark our creativity. This challenge was to use your least favourite lens. For me, it is my 105mm. I love this lens, but it is slow to focus, and usually when I have a moving target, I prefer my 50mm. My partner was the lovely Anita of My Three Sons Images whose freelensing work I just adore. She inspired me to free lens with my 50mm as well.
Afterward as I went through the images, the different lenses and shooting style helped me to capture their story. To show the connection, and relationship they share. They are sisters, friends, and I am grateful to watch this relationship grow and blossom. This is 30 minutes in an Eco garden.
