I titled this post “winter” photos, but I use the term winter loosely when talking about the months of December through February in San Antonio. I grew up in Kansas and winter is very different there than it is here in south Texas. 🙂 Anyway, yesterday I took Madeline and Joshua for some fun on the playground after the afternoon school pickup. This wasn’t Madeline’s first trip to the playground, but is was her first trip there being able to walk on her own. She swang, kid-watched, and ran around on the playground like the big kids. I couldn’t resist catching a few shots of her on this momentous occassion. As I was editing the shots last night, it was noticeable that the green was missing…mainly the green grass. What was also noticeable, is that even though the landscape wasn’t jumping off the computer screen at me, Madeline was. And, isn’t it true that the focal point of the picture is the person in it and not so much the background? My point is this: Don’t shy away from taking photos just because the grass isn’t green and the flowers aren’t full of color and life. Every season is a reason to take pictures of those that matter to you…use a photographer or get out your own camera and capture a few moments.
