Inspired by the five minute project, which dares to ask “What do you see in five minutes?”, I have decided once a month to offer up a series of images taken in the span of five minutes. And, because I enjoy working in community with others, I am teaming up with the phenomenal Meg Prouse, one of the most inspiring and talented photographers on my radar.
It is my goal with this project to capture what is usually considered the mundane in hopes of bringing to my attention (and maybe to yours) the absolute beauty that exists in every moment.
5 minutes at 3:00pm
This is a perfect record of our summer. Summers are usually full of day trips and random activities to keep the kids busy (and me sane). But, this summer has been full of the two of them entertaining themselves with elaborate games involving simple materials. They play together for hours while I try to amuse myself in another area of the house or yard. It’s been wonderful and a little sad. I’m a bit on the outside now. In a week they’ll be back in school. I imagine they’ll miss each other (and me – maybe? – just a little bit).
