    It isn't always obvious - your identity as a mother. It's clouded by expectations, demands and sleep deprivation. For the most part, you live out your day and your duties behind doors with only children looking on who don't fully understand the sacrifices you make. Seven pm rolls around and you breathe a big breath as your children go to sleep, you pour a glass of wine and your identity changes again. Always a mother, but sometimes more than others.

    Story 1

    There's a surreal and mysterious element to this scene that immediately draws me in. This image would be so calm with that gesture holding the baby were it not for that gust of wind (or gentle shake of the line) that provokes. A slight bit of tumultuousness in an otherwise peaceful world.
