A moment captured.
This photo was taken by my son after our granddaughter Edie's baptism. Because I'm the "picture taker", I'm usually not in many pictures. My son grabbed my camera while I was cuddling with her and he took a few. We were in the back of the church surrounded by modern stained glass windows and next to a huge marble baptismal font. My oldest and the mother to this sweet little one is the one looking on. During this time Edie's two older sisters were running around being entertained by other grandparents and their aunts.
I really loved the moment that he captured, but it was slightly blurred. Not his fault, the lighting was low and I had the camera set to a fairly slow shutter speed. I struggled with focus in my shots too.
I never would have edited this picture this way if it weren't for trying to save it and what a wonderful gift that was. I love it this way more than if it would have been true to the setting. The faded effect freezes the moment in time.
So, I didn't actually take this picture, but I did do the editing. :)
I'm linking up with Sarah at Paisley Rain Boots this week (and hopefully, all year!) with her blog link up of Scene and Story: a place to share a favorite picture from the last month and the story that goes along with it.
Technically, it was taken at the end of November and not in the last month...but gosh, it's hard to follow rules.
