Tonight I am posting FPF a little early because I know there’s no way I’ll be able to post tomorrow — Up at 6:00am to get to one job, across town for another, and then back downtown through rush hour traffic for part one of a photo shoot, my first in a while. I’m not expecting to be home until late, late, late, and I know I’ll be exhausted, so early posting it is!
Today has been a happy day. I woke up to good news, allowed myself some relax-time, and have spent the evening cooking, listing to lovely music, and singing with my sweetheart. This has been a good respite after a frustrating few days and I am feeling a bit more optimistic than yesterday.
So, today has been a happy day. Almost as happy as the little one in this photo:
I have loads of love for this image. I found it online a while ago (you may have seen it if you follow me on Pinterest!) and the lighting, the composition, and the content of the photo are beautiful. I love how the photographer used high contrast in the technical aspects of the image as well as in the content — the silhouettes against the bright reflection of the floor are the perfect parallel for the contrast of the drudging grown-ups and this playful child. It’s just joyful.
Unfortunately, I’ve not been able to find out what artist made this image. I’ll be doing some more digging on that, but if anyone knows, please share!
To close, this quote which I feel that all creative types should take to heart:
This can be so hard, but you have to know it’s good advice. The best, really. It was a little piece of wisdom that put a smile on my face today, so I thought I’d share.
Keep on smiling, and help others do the same!
