Kate viewed through her star-shaped magic wand…
Halfway through the year and today’s photograph was made during dinner.
Seated in Nicki’s chair I got a slightly different view on both the kids as we ate — Nicki feeding Sparky and me helping Kate.
Both were exhausted. And it showed in their faces.
As I was watching Kate, looking for an image that was a bit different than what I had made earlier this year, I kept looking for that evidence of exhaustion.
She was slouched over, and it was a battle to get her to focus on broccoli, carrots or her chicken.
Up came the wand and she placed it between us, while I focused on her eye. Because it was too close to the camera, it was out of focus, but I loved how it framed her and altered the image.
Definitely not a conventional portrait, but one I like nonetheless.
