Guest Photographer- N.J.B.












Last May when I went out for this session, M. was kind enough to let my daughter, who greatly looks up to her, tag along. I gave her a Holga to keep her busy for awhile. (Though I think she used all the film in the first 15 minutes.) Unfortunately, I didn't check the bulb setting on the bottom and everything turned into a big blur, a pretty blur nonetheless. Lesson learned.

Note: N.J. is 6 and prefers Polaroid to Holga... but Polaroid film isn't always within her budget and her parents think variety is good.

That last picture is so pretty, and I think I prefer the blur.
One of the reasons I delight in photography is that sometimes little accidental changes give pleasant surprises!

dear alicia,

I read your blog with much enthusiasm! I read all the posts and I'm delighted!
I like the way you look at the world. I like the textures, the details and the colors that you find.
I also like to see the beauty of simple things.
And your distraction resulted in beautiful and original snapshots...
Simply wonderful, thank you!

wonderful I can't wait until my daughter is old enough to understand that she needs to look through the viewfinder...she still holds the camera backwards and loves taking self time portraits and being my subject matter!

I love the Note at the end -- it reminds me of my six-year-old boy very much.

as blurry photos are some of my favorite kind, i am loving these. and i feel i need to start looking at the world through child-like eyes, as these are absolutely beautiful photos and make my photography feel a little bit forced.

thanks for sharing these! what a little talent.

Child-like is always the best. The first one looks like a watercolor. I love all of them.
