So I heard from Sandra that the responds from our fans are simply AMAZING!! I am so excited that Sandra has decided that Little Bellows is going back to the roots...the photography roots, film. I might be just a little biased since I adore it. Here is a perfect example why I love film:
The above image by Love Bee Photography screams nostalgic. I am not sure it is because the film stock use, the way it was processed, or the dust marks left by the scanner. The image looks like it was taken a long time ago, during the time when things were a little simpler.
This photograph tugs at the heartstrings because we all can relate to this scene in our childhood memories on one of those hot summer days:
You mom put you on the steps of the back porch with some of your favorite toys and an icy cold treat. You probably played with your toys for a few minutes until something caught your attention. The neighborhood kids playing basketball on the driveway perhaps? A lady and her dog just walked by maybe? World is full of wonder and curiosity when you were little. You were caught in the moment, even the bubbles were ignored.
I love the color, the smell, the slightly tipped foot, the bubble, the heat from the sun, the soft focus, the polka dotted romper, the red curls, off the shoulder straps, the texture of the weathered wood steps and porch, and oh-my-goodness-precious-beyond-words baby goodness!
