In the life of a photographer, whose art is created in tiny fractions of a second, 30 minutes is a sustained thought. Thirty minutes, the length of a child't ballet class, a quick sauce's simmer, a commute, is long enought to witness change and short enough to be over before you know it. We offer you here, our monthly results of 30 minutes of watching and waiting and recording, of rendering permanent those fractions of a second that slip past in the time it takes to watch a television show. Thirty minutes in the life.

I feel so honored to be connected to an amazing group of photographers who have committed to capturing 30 minutes in our lives. This month, as I was getting my oldest daughter up for her first day of school, I realized this was 30 minutes I wanted to remember. My 15-year-old's first day of school was very different from the kindergartner's whose hand I held only 10 years ago. It was quiet. Just the two of us; no fanfare or tears, just my girl, all grown up.
