My Life Photography

Mama, they’re just lemons



My sister in law brought us lemons all the way from Arizona. They are much needed due to a little bit of crud I’ve been fighting all week.  I’ve been  obsessed with photographing them. I guess for too long.  Someone showed up and tried to steal one…..



lemons from Arizona


It was his way of forcing me to see him instead of the lemons.

Mama, they are just lemons, he said.

But what he really meant was : Mama, they are just lemons, I’m your baby. Come play.

SO I put down my camera and I played.

I forgot about this photo on my memory card until a little while ago.

When I pulled it up and saw it in Lightroom, I immediately wanted to delete it.

But I didn’t. I want to remember that chubby hand…….

It’s now one of my favorites, and soon it will be on my wall somewhere in the kitchen.

But anyway, have a great weekend.

Take a picture. But remember to put the camera down and live too.

    That will look great on a wall! In my house, it’s the phone not the camera. I’m making conscience efforts put it down and play more.

    When life gives you lemons, you take ‘lil-chubby-handed pictures. 😉

    Although you wanted to delete It I think it is a great image!!

    So true what you say. Sometimes we just get so distracted by our need to create art we forget about the little things.
