A just-because shot.
Just because I love crepe myrtle in winter.
Because I love blue.
And because this shot has a story behind it. It's been tempting me since we first looked at our new house - one of the positive things about changing yards and moving three streets over.
This morning, I didn't really get a break between kids to do my shooting, so I wrapped the baby up and told the toddler to stay inside. I would be just outside the door (eight feet away) to take this picture.
It's the longest eight feet in the world when you're holding a three-month old and the toddler comes out and lets the one remaining cat out with all of her stuffed animals in the space of a minute.
And rounding them all up with camera in hand...
Well, let's just say I'm good.
And we'll be working on that listening thing.
