family: (photo)... smile a little while...

another in the continuing View from 3 Feet series:

Beauty and the Bug
(photo by me)

One of the things I like best about the photos from K's camera is their lack of focus. It's due largely to the quality of the lens, but it's also a function of the shutter speed. None of that really matters though -- what I like is that this blurry vagueness and the frequently off-kilter orientation of the photos fairly accurately capture our current life.... everything feels like it's blurring along.

My latest theory is that the blur comes with the chaos of kids (including lack of sleep), and then by the time the kids are out of the house the blur has become permanent, due to cataracts, pollution, dirty windows, global warming, failing bodies, 18 years of habit..... Something more to look forward to!
