Challenge 133

I was awake last night around 1:00am to let the puppy outside to pee and it occurred to me that I hadn't set up todays post. Oops. It also occurred to me that during the craziness of farming and 3 weeks of house guests, I'd also forgotten to make this week's layout. So, in keeping with last week's disorganization, I present to you a very tardy post! Oh well...that's life :)

This week, our challenge was to use a blurry/crappy photo. I chose to use an old snapshot of my oldest son from many moons ago, long before I owned a "real" camera - made evident by the blurry photo and cluttered background...but I love it because every time he yawned as an infant, my heart melted. I had forgotten how it made me feel until I found this photo.

This challenge is really useful in reminding us that important moments aren't always captured in a perfectly composed, skillfully exposed image. Sometimes, the memory comes right back like it was happening at this very moment despite the bad photo. They are still worth scrapping. Easy to forget, good to remember.
