Photo Friday: Waking Up

Oh, mom, not the camera again...
Oh, mom, not the camera again...

I'm not usually in the room when Darya wakes up in the morning, so there's something precious about experiencing those first few moments with her when we travel. On this day, already long awake, I grabbed my camera to record that groggy look. It probably ruined the moment, but when I look at it I remember all the other lazy mornings we spent waking up together in a hotel room.

What is Photo Friday?

  • Post a travel photo on your site. It can be about any topic, as long as it is G-rated.
  • The focus of the post should be on your photo.
  • You don't need to be a professional photographer (I'm not), but do showcase your best work, and make it big enough to see well!
  • It's nice to include a few sentences about the photo, but it is not required.
  • Link back here so that your readers can see all the other great Photo Friday posts.

        I think mornings with kids is one of those things you keep with you forever and it's very cool you got a picture.

        Awesome capture. Kids look so pretty when they wake up with sleepy mood. Very nice. Keep up the great work.
