Live Every Moment

I told you that I'd be submitting my photo for the Live Every Moment weekly photo challenge.  This week the challenge is "orange."

Easy enough?  Except that orange is probably my least favorite color (apologies to my FIL who loves orange.  I should have photographed him!).  I tried to take pictures of our orange candlesticks, of Em with her orange binkie, but there wasn't any mojo.  I wasn't inspired by anything and I really wanted to do this photo challenge for the first time.  Well, Tuesday at music class, the kids had a chance to dance around with colorful scarves and guess which color Jax chose: orange!

I didn't have my camera.  I happened to have my phone in my jacket pocket.  I quickly pulled it out and took what I will say is my favorite orangey picture yet. 


Yes, it's grainy.  Yes, it was taken with my phone.  Yes, the skylight is pouring in all kinds of crazy sunlight but I love this picture.  Jax is dancing like nobody's watching (or photographing) and I love his enthusiasm for life.  So there's my first submission for a legit photo challenge.  A picture taken on my phone.
