She's #1

BoJos, originally uploaded by medusahead.

Sometimes I have a problem walking the balance between paparazzo and parent. Yesterday was the Brooks Museum contest challenge to shoot Memphis for a chance to have your photo on their wall, so shoot I did. I took pictures at the Farmers Market (and couldn't help but giggle at the scads of other likeminded photographers who stalked the zinnia farmers and Irish mustachioed band dude for photo ops) I followed Caleb and Harlow around BoJos and finally got to take pics up against that awesome red wall. I stalked my child through the fountains at Peabody, click click clicking away. And while I checked my LCD screen for images and futzed with the ISO and scouted for shots, Caleb was the carrier of child, the soother of scraped knees and the deservedly pissed off husband. I know it didn't help that my head was about to explode from that extra glass of wine I really didn't need the night before, so I was whiny and head clutchy and generally unhelpful and annoying.So I am sorry.

But I am so going to have a photo on that gallery wall.
