Hi! When my young children are at school I miss them. The house seems too quiet without them. When they’re at home all week because of the holiday break, I start to count the days until there is some silence again. But throughout the week I paused and tried to catch moments. I thought I’d remember them in Project 365 week 8.
Such as my son lost in thought as we ordered our food in a small diner last Sunday.
My daughter caught unawares when I walked back into the kitchen and she was mixing the breadcrumbs I was preparing for baked prawns.
The deep silence of the woods on a late afternoon walk when I stopped to take a photo. The only other person we met as we walked until the sun began to set was a lone cross country skier.
When I felt like an intruder as my daughter and a sea horse seemed to gaze in wonder at each other.
A rescued bobcat pacing silently and alone in its wired enclosure.
My son playing by a window in a museum. Then stopping to stare out at the empty courtyard.
A small bird spreading its wings as it prepares to fly off.
Next week my two will be back at school and I’ll miss their laughter and noise in the house during the daytime. (But I’ll focus on finishing off the latest post with tips about profiles in Google Plus following my general introduction this past week.)
Hope you have a lovely week ahead,
Erica Price says
Lovely shots – I particularly like the one of your son waiting at the diner. The black and white pics are stunning too. I love having my son off and spending time with him, but it’s nice to clear the to do list a bit when he goes back to school.
Thanks Erica. I feel guilty as love having them at home but no time to get anything done.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to get into their heads if even for a minute? Beautiful pics which makes you think what they’re thinking! And a bit envious of that snow 🙂
When I catch them those moments lost in thought I want to find out what they’re thinking but then don’t want to disturb them.
I am LOVING the photo of your son peering out into the courtyard.
Thank you – he posed perfectly although he wasn’t aware of it!

mmmmm breaded prawns!!
gorgeous photos – the seahorse one is lovely and the bobcat in the snow is too. x
The bobcat was actually the hardest photo to take as there were two wire fences between us. So it took me ages to get the right aperture to focus on the cat rather than the wires…the bobcat was pacing back and forth so that made it easier.

Absolutely love this set of photos. I can’t honestly decide which is my favourite, although I do love the one with the seahorse.
Elaine Livingstone says
your daughter and the seahorse is a stunning picture. The bird spreading its wings is amazing to capture? Where have you found snow?
