AgapΩ: Each day is a gift even if it isn't exactly what we hoped for.
Elena Shumilova is a brilliant Russian photographer, who gets her inspiration for her amazing photos from the everyday lives of her two little children, Yaroslav and Vanya, and the domestic animals they live with in the gorgeous outskirts of Andreapol, Russia. In her photography, the artist evokes long-forgotten magical realism, striking the viewer with the beauty in simple and precious things like human and animal friendship, a warm embrace, or just actually living in the moment.
We thank you God for all that You give : The lives we live, the food we eat, and for our loved ones. Lord, help us all to live our days with thankful hearts and loving ways. -Author Unknown Photography by Val Spring
