Please caption this image London, ON, January 2009
I often like to hang back and just watch our kids be themselves. When I'm taking pictures of them - or of anyone else, for that matter - I don't pose them. I'm content to silently capture the moment without trying to influence its outcome. I realize that means our family pictures are far from conventional. But we're far from a conventional family, so I guess it's all good.
On this day, Dahlia and Noah were out on a grand grocery store adventure with me, trying to work our way through my wife's shopping list, and trying to not miss too many of the things on it. As often happens, we were slowed immensely by the overwhelming variety of products on the shelves - does the world really need a full dozen varieties of marmelade? - but they didn't seem to mind at all.
Indeed, I can't wait for our next trip down the confusing aisles. It's always more fun when they're around. And more expensive.

About last week's photo of an F.15C screaming over a couple of kids: Ann's "A fly-by shooting" works on so many levels that it's a natural choice for this week's win. If you haven't read her blog, It's Always a Production, you're missing out. With seeming ease, she shares slices of her family's life, and she shoots like no one's business.
