Magical Eraser

{ Metro Detroit/Ann Arbor Michigan Child and Family Photographer}

I recently had a chance to be part of a group of awesome photographers and join in a project.  The assignment:  to illustrate, in photographs, a poem from Shel Silverstein’s “Where the Sidewalk Ends.”  I adore Shel Silverstein (I say you’re never too old) and absolutely love how his whimsical tales spur the imagination.  Although there are MANY poems I’d like to pick over the course of the Summer, I chose “Magical Eraser” for my first project.

girl sticking tongue out at brother

boy "erasing" sister

Check out more poems done by the talented photographers who are part of this project:

    Ugh, you keep showing her work and it's causing termoil for me! LOL I LOVE my photographer, but this photogropher is so different and I love her work! LOL And coming from someone who lives so far away, to post someone local to me is just not fair! LOL
