Seeing the world through a child’s eyes is no easy task, but Adrian C. Murray, a father of 4 and a photographer, managed to capture the everyday fairy tales his kids would create right in his house. Whether it’s hugging a beloved dog or potty-training a teddy bear, these few moments that may seem ordinary are, in fact, a small part of the magic that is childhood.
Here at Bright Side, we couldn’t help but smile while looking at Murray’s photos that are sometimes cozy and oftentimes full of drive. We’d love for you to take a look at this series and feel the spirit of childhood together with us.
