Baby X is Due in 8 Days

Amy is going to have a baby!

Instead of trying to make a cohesive story of images processed in the same manner,

I have chosen to process each image differently.

They can be read sequentially or individually.

 

 

1.

Dainty pregnant woman eats breakfast while sitting on glass table.

2.

Mmm.

3.

I really like this photo. Unfortunately, it only shows the tiniest hint of belly.

4.

Same location, more belly.

5.

It’s hard to get an idea of how big a belly actually is when you look at it straight on—

unless you get a long-armed man reaching around, unable to reach.

[I purposely focused on the hands,

but I should have used a wider aperture to keep their faces in focus too.

And I think the lighting is too harsh. Horrors!]

6.

Almost-big-brother checks in on his sibling-to-be.

7.

This is my favorite.

8.

Then Amy turned around and started playing the piano.

I started breathing deeply and stopped worrying about whatever was pushing my worry buttons.

[If I could use Photoshop, I would remove the electric outlet. It must be simple enough…]

9.

I can’t decide if I like the photo above or this photo better.

I like the movement in this photo. I like the simplicity of composition.

[Perhaps I should crop out the eye-attracting cleavage.]

10.

Soon I became lost in the music and the reflections on the piano.

11.

I forgot I had meant to be taking photos of a pregnancy.

I took photos of a pianist instead.
