Geoffrey Biddle writes:

These pictures were taken during my family’s everyday life in 2013—on the way to school; a visit to the doctor’s office; experiencing the subway in New York City (we live in California); tuning up the cello. When I get the creeping feeling that I’m not being productive enough, I focus on remembering to have my camera nearby as much as possible. You never know when a photograph is going to present itself. In the morning, the family is getting breakfast and preparing lunch, packing the school knapsacks, trying to remember anything special for today, fitting in strings and piano practice–if I’m able to grab the camera and make a considered picture before I leave the house, the day is off to a great start.
