It was brought to my attention that I spend so much time taking photographs of everyone else that I don’t even stop to take photos of my husband, Corey. A few months ago, he called me to tell me he was looking through some gardening books at Lowe’s and wanted to start growing his own vegetables. I thought it was a great idea, however, I knew I could not devote any time to it with everything else I have going on – i.e. full time job, photography business. So I was sure to let him know that if he was going to do this, that he was going to be doing it and I wouldn’t be able to commit to helping.
Let’s just generalize for a minute. Men: I apologize for the blanket statement but bear with me. I have come to realize that men tend to get a lot of ideas. Some ideas they execute, others wither away with time – could be 5 minutes, 5 hours, or 5 days. The ideas they actually execute are sometimes few and far between depending on the guy. So I was a little surprised when Corey began buying packets of seeds, a book, soil, etc. After months of hard work and perseverance, what started as a spare bedroom science project – with lamps, fans, the works – has turned into quite the vegetable garden!
So one day when Corey got home from work and was tending to his garden picking vegetables for dinner, I got my camera out to snap a few photos of him in action. I’m so proud of my man! I’m really excited about round two. He’s building and planting a second raised bed of vegetables for the fall.
