I absolutely adore serendipity. So, while Jaimee and I talked about this theme before the self-portrait challenge, it seemed logical to come back to it this week, now that we both have our feet planted a bit more firmly beneath us. Honestly, the word itself feels good. After the business we’ve had in our schedule, the unexpected vehicle repairs, the tantrums and stresses of life…it’s a good reminder to take solace in those things, those people who offer comfort.
I can imagine Jaimee needs a healthy dose of comfort right about now too, so when I opened her picture, I literally laughed out loud. Jaimee, I don’t know the story behind this shot, but if it’s anything like the fun around our house, it involves a harried Mom and busy sibling. What’s not to love about that sweet face – so relaxed and looking all grown-up. I loved the brightness and the contrast of his sweet skin and the texture of the carpet. I admit, I really resisted the urge to convert my shot to B&W, but now that I see them together, the warmth seems good…comfortable.
