I heart, no, I love… really, I adore these photos by Malin Ngoie
“A bird on her head,” I can hear my mother say (…sorry mom). “Why would you take a picture like that?” But look at it. Perfection. Why don’t I think of these things? But better question is, why can’t I take beautiful pictures like this?
Always a sucker for any kind of tea party. Little girl, big girl, any kind at all.
And isn’t this little guy a cutie (with a capital “C”)? I have a door like this (remember)? Everyone thought it was weird to buy a old dirty door. But I had the same idea . And if anything, it was totally worth it for a good prop. Right now it sits in my dining room and so many people ask me why I have an old door in my dining room. I’m not sure what to do with for everyday use. I do wonder what went on behind that door when it was in its original home.
And this one. What do you see? I see rosy cheeks and colorful buttons trapped behind a blurry muted window that is holding back much more than a little girl…wonder, curiosity, and life, maybe? It’s a haunting picture of sorts. And I love those kind the best because they tell a story, even if it is one you have to make up for yourself.

I want to take better photos. Most of the time I only have my iphone, you too? Well, while I was buying my diaper clutch, I stumbled across this little tutorial along with some great apps to make your iphone pics look so much better. I think you’ll really like this!
But really, I think Ansel Adams says it best on the subject . . .
“There are no rules for good photographs. There are only good photographs.”
