Visionary Offspring

Ever since my 2nd daughter was born we knew she would be completely different from her older sister. Not only do they look like day and night but their likes and dislikes are complete opposites as well. If one says the sky is blue the other says no its not it's white with wedgewood streaks. They love to disagree and debate over the simplest things. Putting all their quirks and difference aside there is one thing they both have in common and that is the gift of vision and color. It seems they both have a natural knack for photography. The images they catch are amazing and intense. Here's a few pieces of work from both of them. You can certainly get a feel for their personalities through their photography.

How deep are your footprints?

It seems like everyone is on the bandwagon with saving the earth and making it a better place to live, sure who wouldn't want to live in a better place? I try to encourage my children and family to recycle as much as possible and to use local resources to help cut down on our carbon footprints. We usually shop at the "big" grocery market in our town and noticed some great local products they stock. I especially love the Pennsylvania apples. They are sweet and crisp especially with fruit dip. I'm sure everyone knows that the Amish are from Lancaster so to see "Little Barn" noodles was a delight. Here's another Pennsy fact for you. Entenmann's Bakery distribution center is in Horsham, PA.
