Photography with kids, and some of my little dreams
Some of my little dreams are to 1) have a photography workshop and 2) to teach a class/ workshop on doing photography with your kids
Interestingly, normally, I'd just get on with it and do it, but I've tried so many things that have "failed" that I'm feeling very vulnerable these days. If you pray, pray with me about this.
I have been asking God lately why he's given me all these dreams - big and little - of speaking and encouraging and so on, and even though I've persisted so hard and long, I see not much light, you know?
I heard in church the other day that Jesus had a ministry of 3 years and I have probably had 3 good-ish years, so is that it?
The things that go through my mind!
Anyway, something I LOVE doing with my kids is to go on themed photowalks.
It can make a walk you've done over 50 times interesting when you look for different things.
On my birthday this year, one of my first pastors left me a birthday message on FB and said, "hope you find beautiful things to take photos of today" and I thought YES!
So we went on a pattern photowalk.
Which is your favourite pattern?
PS Our friends said to us, "oh, I LOVE your purple wall" and I literally screamed, "NOOOOOO, it's grey!!!!!" LOL
