Photography:"Project Looking Through"

A friend recently turned me on to THIS site. It's pretty cool...has some neat photography projects that I'd like to participate in.

His current project is "Project Looking Through". Photographers take their pictures of looking through something, link up to his site, and everyone can share their stuff. It's fun! Go check it out and see what everyone else is submitting.

I had a heck of a time with this one! I was hoping to come up with something really unique and interesting...maybe even a little artistic. But what do you get? Just me, and my kids, and my dishes...just my life :)

Here's the first shot. I was straightening up the kitchen, and the blender was out from making smoothies the other day. You can see my candle burning...yep...through...the handle of the blender. I like the light and glass combo in this one.

After Thomas woke up from his morning nap, I headed to Sammy's bedroom with my two little ones to get her dressed. Thomas was enjoying playing on the floor with some toys he'd never seen before. And, that little girl must have known about this project! She started playing peek-a-boo with everything and anything she could find. She started with these sheer curtains hanging in her room. She thinks she's being so sneaky....has no idea that I can see her :)

OK, this one I set up. I grabbed the baby wipes container, opened up the lid, and shot Thomas through the oval opening. He thought the whole idea was pretty interesting.

Sammy didn't like the idea of Thomas getting attention when she was in the middle of her "peek" game. She grabbed this toy and started trying to get my attention.

She had my full attention until Thomas started playing with this great toy...perfect for this project! I love his drooly little bottom lip :)

Not to be out-done, Sammy pulled this stunt! It's actually her favorite new "Mommy, watch!" trick. She bends over, puts her head on the ground, looks at you through her legs, and starts giggling. She gets quite the kick out of it! I'm pretty sure that she thinks she invented something here that no other human has ever done...

So that's my first try at this project. It's been fun! I'll be bringing my camera with me as I'm out and about this weekend...looking for more great "looking through" shots.

I absolutely LOVE the one of your daughter peeking through the curtains. How the colors of the flowers on the curtains frame her face is precious. Simply wonderful!

I just put up my first PLT image tonight.

The curtain shot has a wonderful ethereal feel to it. The candle shot still deserves the top spot, though.

Thanks for joining!

All great pictures!! My nephew - almost 14 months is a big ham as well - I'll have to get some shots of him!

I'm here by way of Marks Blog

Every photo is wonderful! I especially like the curtain one and the last.

I enjoyed reading your post, too!

I really like the first one. The glass looks so fluid.

The last one takes the cake though. That is just too darn cute!!!

Beautiful! I love how the candle light flows through the glass on the mixer and how cute are your kids? The curtain image and the between the legs shot are just precious.

COOL! The first one and the last one are my favorites...

Oh I'm so glad I came by. Your life is art! I love the light of the candle through the blender and yes, everyone is right in saying your little girl behind the curtain is amazing.

I also like the one of your son through the wipes container opening, how'd you think of that!?

just great art - each and every shot.

So cute!

WOW! You did great! I just joined today - and the one you have of your daughter with the curtains is kinda similar to my first one! (and i thought i was being sO clever!) LOL!

I admire your artistic eye and your wholesome approach. I wish you success. There is nothing like the innocence and joy of children--I love that you capture both so vividly.
