Mother’s Day Breakfeast!

My wonderful teenage son’s brought me tea & coffee in bed this morning (they made tea first, forgetting I like coffee in the morning so brought both up!) and then cooked up this feast… which I thought deserved to be shared!  Lot’s of things make being a Mother worthwhile but sometimes it’s the small things that put the biggest smile on your face and in your heart…

This is the breakfast my sons' of 17 & 14 cooked for me this morning for Mother's day...

... it consisted of scrambled eggs with bacon & chestnut mushrooms, piled on top of toasted salt & pepper tiger loaf bread with a rocket  leaf salad garnish... it was absolutely delicious!  Two chefs in the making I think!

    Heh heh, just read this to your eldest brother and he reckons he does more than you! I’ll leave you to that debate at a later stage!

      It was wonderful and I was truly touched that they cooked this up between them, without their older sister cracking the whip! (It’s the first Mother’s day she hasn’t been around!) That’s why I felt it should be forever recorded… it may not happen again! 🙂

Quotes that speak to my soul…

"Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.
What you have caught on film is captured forever...
it remembers little things,
long after you have forgotten everything." - Aaron Siskind

"You become things, you become an atmosphere, and if you become it, which means you incorporate it within you, you can also give it back. You can put this feeling into a picture. A painter can do it. And a musician can do it and I think a photographer can do that too and that I would call the dreaming with open eyes." - Ernst Haas

"Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by Dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most importantly, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary."
- Steve Jobs

“To photograph is to hold one's breath, when all faculties converge to capture fleeting reality. It's at that precise moment that mastering an image becomes a great physical and intellectual joy.”
- Henri Cartier-Bresson

“For me, the camera is a sketch book, an instrument of intuition and spontaneity.”
― Henri Cartier-Bresson

“Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference”
― Robert Frank
