30 Day Photography Challenge: Day 26 | Close-Up
Today was the first day of the Early Childhood Development Music class I am taking my youngest to. He loves music. And I am loving this chance to spend one on one time with just him. I honestly can't say how often that has happened, and this chance to just focus on him is amazing. Not to mention I love to see him boogie.
For today's challenge, I could have gone all macro. What is more close up than an awesome macro shot?
Then I went to class, saw how this little kid of mine reacted to the music around him, and knew I had to take some photos. As I was going through them once we got home, I decided I wanted to use one of the shots from class as my close-up shot.
It isn't macro. It is just his little hands, dirty finger nails and all, exploring a new instrument.
Honestly, that is close-up to me. It is a moment. A memory. A snapshot of a first.
I love music. I grew up being a part of choirs. Training in musical theatre. Taking private voice and piano lessons. My Dad and I have fun making up random songs together with no purpose, singing the words as they come to mind. I always have a song in my head. Always.
Seeing how much my son is already embracing music... It means so much to me.
Seeing him boogie... makes my day.
