Quiet Glimpses During a Busy Week – You Capture

This week just flew.

It rattled around me like the strong winds that have been whipping through Los Angeles.

But it’s been a good rattle. A good fly. Because my soul is filled with the joy of opportunity.

I didn’t have many chances to capture QUIET this week.

But I tried.

I happened upon this scene as I stood in the kitchen and I realized the house was uh, quiet.I walked back towards the kids’ rooms and this is what I found. A big sister just learning to read quietly reading to her adoring brother.


I don’t really mind that the photo is blurry. I like trying to capture the real light of the moment. Do blurry photos bother you?

And then a typical school morning but the light was streaming in and I don’t know about you but streaming morning light is just simply quiet. It’s feels quiet even when it’s resting on a noisy 5-year-old.



I’m so hooked on these weekly You Capture projects. Join the fun if you aren’t already in on it.



This has been an edition of You Capture over at Beth’s I Should Be Folding Laundry.
The theme was “Quiet.”

And tune in tomorrow for another edition of “Conversations with My Kid.” If you’re posting
a conversation you’ve had with YOUR kid, you can link up and join the fun!!

Wishing you the peace of some quiet moments.

    I love it that you're doing this! And I love the photos of course.

    Also, our boys have the same beds! (Miles and Tommy) same cars comforter and even the same blanket that's on the bed. (this proves I AM stalking you) 🙂

    Talk soon?

    Blurry photos don't bother me one bit. Especially ones so precious . . .

    I'm passing this on to my wife. Seems like her sort of experiment . . .

    I love all these pictures they really do say quite to me. What a great assignment, it is so easy to forget to notice calm and quiet moments because of all the craziness that happens around them.

    Cute kids! I love the color of the room they're reading in.

    Sometimes the best moments are captured with a little blur. That's one of them.

    Very cool photos, Lee. Of course even if the kids are noisy, the pictures are still "quiet" for us – hee hee! And that "blurry" photo is just adorable. I love the colors of your pics. Hope you have a nice weekend!

    I love your photos – really awesome and certainly quiet.

    that girl of yours, lee….what a honey.

    and I love photos in natural light. blur or no blur. (and really, a blurry picture is a little more reflective of our lives, isn't it?)
