…some from my phone, some from my good camera. some with my light set up….some with whatever light happened to be around…some with lots of forethought on camera setting…most with absolutely NO forethought on camera settings (WHY am I so LAZY about that?! yikes!). But I love this set. I love each of these shots separately and the set of the them together….telling all the stories of this holiday seasons.
When I started out this project this year, I was feeling lots of ambiguity about Christmas. I looked back at the albums I put together in the years’ past and that reminded me that each year makes their own stories. There is only so much control I have over what unfolds.
This year the story was about sisters, Santa, my Grandfather, class parties, and ILLNESS. A mix of things…the good, bad and unexpected. I guess, in the end…Christmas is lot like everyday life…except more so.
