Contrasts

    There are many contrasts in life. Light and Darkness. Thought and action. Rest and play. As a child I feared the dark after sundown. Now in photography I seek the shadows as much as the light.

Make a Wish

    What do you wish/hope for in the coming year? Is it something great? Is it something small? Is it something small and great?

Beat the Heat

When it is too hot to leave the house, and the only cool room left in the house is either the laundry or the bathroom, what do you do? Have a nice cold bath. With a bath tub full of water you're kids aren't going to feel that it is actually 38 degrees celcius [that's 100 degrees to my American comrades] outside. 

Happy Hot New Year!

Merry Christmas

© Melissa Gaggiano
    Wishing you a merry Christmas from my family to yours. Whatever the struggles that come with 2016, let these things be a stepping stone toward creating a better 2017. And let the uplifting memories that you gathered this year be the stuff that balances out the disappointments.

    Make it a safe and peaceful season, whoever you are.

Bright Shiny Things

Bright Shiny Things is a new photographic series now available in my store

First thing in the morning, the world is bright and shiny. Cells are rested, eyes glazed but not dazed. Children and animals awaken ready to embrace the potential of a new day.
