This past Monday was Labor Day here in the States, and we spent the day with our friends Trish and Carl. Trish and Carl are what I call "Kitchen Drawer Friends" -- you know, those friends whose home you can visit, and when it's time to sit and eat, you don't have to wait for them to set the table because you're comfortable enough to just go into their kitchen drawers, and start setting the table yourself.
As we were getting ready to head over there, it dawned on me that it had been a while since I'd shot with my Nikon -- the little Sony I got a month ago is just so convenient. So at the last minute, I grabbed my dSLR and headed out the door. Because even though we weren't planning on doing anything out-of-the-ordinary with our friends, I'm coming to realize that sometimes the mundane, with the benefit of hindsight, is loaded with its awesome as well.
I suspect that I'll be doing a lot more of these "Day of Life" photoshoots in my own life -- because, frankly, they're so much fun to do. I'm also thinking that in the new year, I might offer a few similar photoshoots to those who might be interested in having me record the ordinary extraordinary in their own lives, as well -- capturing the daily moments of love and chaos in everyday life.
More on that very soon.
