Family: Lily painting fingernails

Full coverage on the fingernails
Concentration on a new skill

Everything we do in our life is something that we had to learn. It’s easy to forget that. 

Sam allows our children to learn tasks like painting fingernails with little interruption. I could not do this. I shudder at the mess that Lily could create. It’s one of Sam’s strengths, she is always focused on the goal of raising competent and capable children.

I would be more focused on keeping it clean and orderly.

A quote by John Szarkowski:

“Photography, if practiced with high seriousness, is a contest between a photographer and the presumptions of approximate and habitual seeing. The contest can be held anywhere – on a city sidewalk, a scientific laboratory or in the living  room.”
