About my photos

I just wanted to explain something about the photos in my blogs. 

Most of the poems are written long before I have an idea about a picture to go with them.  So, my first priority is to share the writing.  In some cases I can imagine the perfect photo for a piece, but just haven't found it yet.  For example, I know I have some cute photos of Monica crawling, which will be ideal for "Conquering the Stairs,"  posted on 9-16.  When I do find them, I can go back and add one.  

Also, I hadn't figured out how to insert photos when I started the blog in June, so recently I went back and added a few (ex: the clown and ringmaster photo for "Motherhood is a Circus" on 6-26 and two for "The Grass is Always Greener Across the Street" on 7-19-12.)   

The quality of the photos is purely amateur with a simple camera.  Many of them are getting pretty old.  But some are recent shots or taken to help visually place the poems in context.  I try to keep my blog uncluttered, with a lot of white space, but I think the photos add a necessary visual appeal, and I enjoy them.

I will continue to add photos for old posts whenever I can.  Feel free to scroll through quickly for any you might have missed.  :)
