Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Need help!

OK! I have decided to enter this contest: Mama Focus Photo Contest!
I need to narrow my selections down to two pictures.

From the site:
We hope to see photos that show us what modern motherhood can be like: the ugly and the beautiful. We are looking for pictures with a fresh, unique perspective or that capture a moment, convey a feeling, or tell a story. We want interesting and unexpected shots that give us a peek into real mamahood.

Some themes you might choose to explore (but anything goes!): Self & Solitude, Work & Play, Sleep (or lack thereof) & Dreams, Nature & Nurture.

Composition and photographic excellence don't count, just pictures that capture a moment of motherhood. In my case, here are the contenders:

Sunset Crater. Photographed by Konal.

Wupatki Blowhole. Photographed by Konal.

Working on Home Improvements. Photographed by Konal.

Graduation. Photographed by Mom.

At the Zoo. Photographed by Chris.

Taxi Mom. Photographed by Aidan.
