Steve had last week off work. His parents loaned us a car so we could take Matilda out on a few family adventures and so we had eight days of farms, soft play, beach trips, park outings, messy play and forests. We had a ninth day of our neighbour babysitting while Steve and I worked through a massive to do list.
And I took photographs, of course.
But I'm not going to show you one hundred blurry photos of Matilda whizzing down slides. I'm going to show you the nine photos I chose for my photo a day project.
For those of you who don't already follow Two Days the Same (that's most of you - it's a personal project and its blog views are teeny), I've been taking a photo a day for two and a half years now (solidly; there have been year long projects in the past). I now post the photos for, say, 27th September 2016, 2015 and 2014 all together, one on top of the other, comparing the mood from year to year - I find it fascinating, spotting seasonal signs and occasional sheer coincidences.
Usually, I try to avoid posting the same photos to that blog and to this blog at similar times, but today I'm making an exception. These are the nine photos which best captured nine autumnal days of family time.
If you'd like to see how they compare to September 2014 and 2015, pop over to Two Days the Same and have a look (I post one week behind time).
