What an honor to be a Guest Blogger this month at 30 Minutes in the Life – an extraordinary network of 28 SERIOUSLY TALENTED photographers who capture 30 minutes of precious time in photos each month.
A little nervous, but here are mine….
My “30 Minutes” was captured on a recent trip to our town library (Maplewood, NJ
) with my kids – Levi, 2, Jade, 5.5. They really love the library! They are obsessed with running up the long ramp to the entrance, peering through the fish tank, reading “character” books (“Dora”/”Pinkalicious”/”Thomas” to name a few) and any “big girl” chapter books my daughter finds like the “Ramona” series. They proudly use their library cards and excitedly share their book choices with the librarian. They read to each other now, which is awesome. One of my favorite shots in this series is Jade reading to Levi with such pride and joy; she has learned to read this year and it’s amazing to listen to. Going to the library is such a simple activity, but classic, free, fun, and will never go out of style. I’m so glad I grabbed my camera for this trip!
After browsing this series, I invite you to check out an incredible photographer, Sonia Epple
, based in Ausberg, Germany. Her work is stunning and soulful, and is she part of the 30 Minutes circle. I really loved looking through her site!
