Count this as project #1.
I'm feeling inspired this week. It may be because I had a 4 day weekend . . . just maybe ;) I've been wanting a new camera for a while now that would take better pictures than my little compact camera and for Christmas my wonderful husband bought me one. I've always loved photography, especially old black and white photos. You could call my family growing up photographaholics (yes, I just made up that word). I took a few darkroom photography classes back in the day and like a typical teenager, plastered my bedroom walls with magazine pictures. Okay . . . yes, sometimes it was because there was a cute male model/actor in the picture, but most of the pictures were ripped out and hung because I just loved the photo. Fashion shoots in the rain forest with every color of green imaginable, layers of different textured fabric and modern day made-up Audrey Hepburn with just the right lighting. Now that I'm older I find myself repeating this behavior, only this time I'm collecting wonderful old family pictures and taking photos with new memories. The photos are stored in my closet waiting to be framed and cover my living room wall.
So, I was perusing the Internet looking at different sites and came across a blog called, Mila's Daydreams by Adele Enersen, who lives in Finland. While on maternity leave she started taking pictures of her baby during her naps and created daydreams scenes around the baby. These photos are too cute and instantly got me itching for a project.
