Walk

Ah, the joys of having the teeniest following in cyberspace. I can walk away for three weeks without worrying anyone. Incidentally, walk is this week's theme over at Picture This, and that happens to be something we do often around here.

I can't tell you how many shots I have of Eli from this perspective. What is it about seeing your little one walking away into the distance that's so compelling? Maybe it's the pride in his independence; maybe it's the rare chance to see him from afar; maybe it's one of the few ways he'll actually let me take his picture. Whatever it is, when I have my camera on hand, I can't help myself.

Do not think for ONE MOMENT that you were not missed! But hey, we respect that you have a life out there beyond the blog (unlike some of us....*sigh*) :-D But glad to see you back and lovely walking shot. I think a lot of us had similar ideas this week :-)

Welcome back. Yep, maybe it's the only way they let us take their picture! I have a lot of those shots, too.

Glad you are back, and digging your theme! And I DID indeed notice your departure, glad you have other things to attend to besides your dear readers! :)
