Tiny Sacred Things • Day Six


friends asked if i would take their Christmas card photo.
we went to the park with their dogs.
i took 109 images.
about 10 photos had two people and two dogs all looking in the same direction – smiling.
the rest were kind of like the real life – little moments of honesty, distraction and humor.

don't we all put on our best faces for the world to see, all the while knowing that most of our "real" life is more like an outtake than a Kodak moment?

Personally, I think it is the outtakes that give us our best shots. When I shoot a wedding I always set aside some time to just wander around taking candids. They become some of the favored shots of the entire event.
