moments captured/

they say you can't go home again, but you can always remember it. my advice to you is this: one day that place will not be there anymore in your life. it might remain, but be changed, and never be the refuge it was in your youth… so capture it now, capture the apparent inessential moments of that place, those lazy days when nothing happens, so that you have a way to travel back some far day in the future, when you'd give anything to go back again and hear the familiar sounds of the television upstairs, and the smell of cooking in the kitchen… they are not long, the days of wine and roses.

i took a series of shots at my grandparent's home this past Easter, when i had the time to consider that much of my grandparent's home, a big part of my life since birth, was something that i took for granted, and would never recover from losing once it was gone. so i decided then to capture as many ‘insignificant’ seconds and tiny aspects of the day, and i am so glad i did.

and we all know nothing will ever beat natural light.

taken from the kitchen sink, looking down into the front yard. my grandmother asked me to take a few shots of the tree in bloom, so pleased she was with how it looked in the sunlight.

'these are the moments you will never get back'… or so they say. at least we have this.

was worth getting down onto the blacktop for.
