As I said earlier this week I am focusing on foreground framing,
and I've been perusing the internet and using Pinterest to round up some inspiration.
I pinned this yesterday at Heather San Photography and had to share.
Such a gorgeous photograph and a rich use of foreground framing.

Photo Challenge to Myself: Foreground Framing

I'm going to try to give myself some kind of photo skill or technique or neat little thing to focus on each week. 
This week I'm going to try foreground framing.
Foreground framing is a compositional technique in which you use something in the foreground between you and your intended subject to frame the subject, 
adding depth, complexity, and/or whimsy and leading the viewers eye to your subject in an interesting way.

Next Friday I will post my practice shots.

This morning I'd been reminiscing about Tenley and thinking how adorable it is when little children misunderstand, mis hear, and mispronounce everything, and how bittersweet it is when they finally get it right.
Today she was walking on the sidewalk, wheeling her fuschia/multi-colored, tot sized, Dora the Explore suitcase behind her saying, "See? I got my soup-case! I got my soup-case Mommy!"
I melted.
And not just because it was 110 outside.
Today she asked me to draw her smiley faces, and I couldn't remember when she stopped calling them "happy bubbles".
Raising growing babes is so bittersweet.
And exhausting.
And wonderful.
And at times when people don't understand what you are up against,
extremely invalidating.
But I love it all the same,
I love being a Mom and I love my girls.
