Summer is for childhood and having fun. And what's more fun than a hay jumping in a barn on a beautiful day?! Here's my oldest son just before he took the plunge and this month's Hotshot.
We are in the thick of Little League season and another undefeated run for the Harlem Bulldogs. Heading back to the field after an inning packed with runs are my son (#4) and his teammates, making the cut as this month's hotshot.
I love when my muse is standing against a wall for the interesting angle it allows. If I'm lucky I'll get some wonderful leading lines and patterns. And if I'm really lucky I capture a quirky grin.
Below is my hotshot for this month. Make sure to visit our collective site, Who We Become, to see a mosaic of our January favorites. Or click HERE to follow along the circle, starting with my good friend down in the District, Lisa Rigazio.
Oh the weather outside is.....delightful.
When it's 64 degrees in the middle of December, what else do you do besides bird watching in the park? The Northeast has had some wildly warm, record breaking days and I can't say that we are all that disappointed. This past Sunday the boys and I spent the afternoon watching critters scurry and flutter about. The black and white photo below is my hotshot of the month, as I was particularly drawn to the various patterns, lines and the way in which their gazes intersect. Then just for fun I threw in some other shots from our spring break in December!
A mom I know mistakenly signed her two year-old up to run in the annual Ronald McDonald Charity Run that takes place every November in Central Park. The minimum age is four. She blames it on "mommy brain" which I suffer from frequently and therefore can totally relate. Needless to say her little guy ran, was cheered on by the Yonkers fire department, and is my 'hotshot' for the month. Way to go buddy!
