This week I started the task of organizing my thousands of photos. No exaggeration, my friends. I currently have over 8,300 photos that need to be printed, organized, and burned onto discs. You could say I’m a little behind. You would think, after my computer being stolen last year and losing several months of pictures, that I would be better about backing up my photos. Well, I haven’t gotten better, but I’m working on it. My photography class is reminding me that I MUST back up! So the task lingers while I spend hours working on saving the memories of my loved ones.
As I was working on this task, I came across this photo and it struck me in a way that it didn’t when I took it. Sweet cousins, just together, doing nothing in particular. Joshua loves his cousin, Zoe. I think because their birthdays are only a day apart, he’s held a special place in his heart for her. I love how he’s looking down in her direction with his finger ready like he’s her protector. I love that they are both wearing some of my hand knits. And I love that there is nothing posed about this photo. They are such sweet cousins.
