Monday Moments - I'm a little bias...

My brother is so talented! Both of my brothers are incredibly talented, for that matter, but I have a hard time convincing them of just how talented they are!

My baby brother Brady will be graduating in a couple of weeks with his Masters in Literature from Colorado State University. I am really proud of him. He is a wonderful writer, but he's also an amazing photographer. He's had a love of photography since high school and through the years he's been perfecting his skill.

I think his love of the outdoors has driven his art towards capturing the beauty of nature in it's simplest form. Some of my favorite shots include images we pass every day, but we often fail to "really" see. Like the grain in a piece of wood, water droplets after a rain storm, a fallen leaf, or the formation of a cloud. Brady has an eye for the wonder in creation. Every picture sparks emotion in me. You may remember that I used one of his photo's in a post shortly after I had my last miscarriage. I received several emails telling me how cool the photo was, especially the symbolism it represented. That is how I feel about all my brothers work. It is a gift.

This month my baby brother tuned 29...hard to believe! As a commemoration of his last year before the big 30, (he doesn't know the secret yet...that life really begins at 30) he started a website where he will be posting a picture from every day of his 29th year, along with some of his writing. He will also be posting quite a bit of his photography and some of the other projects he's been working on.

You can check out his daily posts by clicking HERE, or check out all his photography by clicking HERE! I'd love to know what you think.

I asked him yesterday to send me 3 of his favorite shots. He couldn't decide and ended up sending me more, but these are the 3 I choose.
