crystal'd, originally uploaded by gawdessness.

My youngest daughter seems to have an eye for things that I should take pictures of.
She and her closest in age brother are growing foil plates of grass for Easter and after misting them she carried hers to where I was sitting in the living room "Mom! Look at the way the water looks! Maybe you could take a picture of it?"
So I did and she was right and I am glad I paid attention.

You do exquisite macro shots. The drops look like little crystal bugs.

wow! so simple, but phenomenal! i clicked it large, and every single drop reflects all of the other grass blades. incredible, and beautiful!

it's cool that your daughter is looking out for shots for you. my friend, madame x, keeps emailing me, almost daily, with shots she saw that she thought would have been good for my blog. haha! the irony is she hasn't even actually looked at my blog! she's just taken with the idea, like it's my secret life or something. hilarious.

I always find it sweet when my kids too notice things I should shoot. Your daughter picked a winner.

Photo Quotes
When I ask to photograph someone, it is because I love the way they look and I think I make that clear. I'm paying them a tremendous compliment. What I'm saying is, I want to take you home with me and look at you for the rest of my life.
