composition

Today i was starting to take this picture and i overheard a woman say to her friend "i'm sorry i'm not listening right now, i'm too consumed with this picture being taken"  i looked over after taking a couple shots and smiled.  she said "that is going to be a great picture, good composition".  now  i don't know who the heck that lady was or what she did, but i'd like to think she was some famous artist or musician and i really loved that she admired my "good composition" because this whole photography thing still feels so new to me and i crave positive feedback like some kind of crackwhore.   I still feel like i have no idea what i'm doing most of the time and i'm just kinda like a musician playing by ear and not even knowing what notes are.  And it feels good most of the time, just trusting my crazy instincts and not my camera settings or a photography degree (although i think that would be really nice).

i think composition is all about balance, and that makes sense because when i follow my instincts i always find balance. 

and i really can't think of anything else to say except that i'm really happy and so is my girl
and i can't think of anything more important than that.


goodnight


we love and miss you daddy, see you soon and we'll be one big happy family!!
