Selected a dozen shots for this Weekly Photo Challenge. The photographer who created this challenge, Jon Sanwell, suggests walking around and shooting people in a variety of settings throughout the day. One of my decisions was to mix it up, peopled and unpeopled shots but the trace of humanity in the unpeopled shots.
What I documented-
Walk the dogs, cook breakfast, make coffee, catch the school bus, sit in traffic, run out of milk and go to the market, home repairs (thanks to Andy’s father’s screws and nails collection in her basement ceiling)feed the dog, put out the trash, buy a lottery ticket, gather with the family,dine with friends. Everyday life can be so fine.
How wonderful! Full of life!

Realy liked your idea and shots. They did bring humanity with them. Made me feel a bit of warmth of family life, when I’m far away from my relatives. Thank you!
great glimpse into everyday life! i loved those handsome napkins in the ‘table for three’ photo, and i was curious to know what everyone at the table was doing in the photo of the kitchen/dining area! z
The family was building Lego while mom Erika and her dad cooked dinner. Thanks
Lego! Of course! Thanks for expanding! great post! Z
Wonderful documenting of daily life. Everyday life would indeed be fine without the vacuuming and dusting 🙂
