The Story Behind The Picture

I remember the day so clearly. I was a new mommy basking in the warm sun in my backyard with my 4-month-old baby girl. We were lying together on a blanket, and I snapped photo after photo of her latest milestone – holding her head up while lying on her tummy. I mimicked her position, propped myself on the ground in front of her cherubic little face, and snapped this beauty of a shot.
As I snapped this photo I glanced over at the grass beside me. Looking at it from this perspective made the grass seem so clear, each blade stood out prominently, bright like the peel of a ripe lime. I placed my cheek on the cool grass and looked at my little girl, only half of my face peeking out over the green surface. She let out a little giggle. “I wonder what a picture would look like from her perspective?” I thought to myself. I turned the camera on myself, and this is what I got:
When I made the decision to start a blog, I came up with the title Bits of Bee because I thought each post could show only bits and pieces of who I am. The more you read, the more you learn about the Bee that is me!
Wanna know what the rest of me looks like? Check out my newly added About Bee page!
